Garden Design & Build

If you are planning to completely re-design your garden or landscape, Eden Gardens can help you achieve the right appearance. Not only will this raise the value of your property, but you’ll also get kudos from your friends and neighbours. Tsvetelina is our head designer and personally oversees all our garden design projects. Tsvetelina and the team can make your ideas a reality. Once we have redesigned your garden or landscape, we can provide ongoing professional maintenance service to ensure your investment retains its value.

Designing a garden is a bit like interior decoration. In the first place you need to decide what you want to achieve. Do you want to create a rural idyll? Do you want to create a place for the children to enjoy themselves? Only you can decide what your new garden should look like. Whatever you choose, we can give you professional advice on techniques, styles, planting schemes, materials and costs.

We are also happy to work with other designers, architects and developers

Eden Gardens offers you a variety of specialist garden landscaping services in London and many other areas around.

Getting the right garden solution is a combination of creative ideas, practical gardening and YOU. At Eden Gardens, we will think about all aspects of your garden requirements to ensure you get the design that best meets your needs.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

The process starts with you. We will arrange a consultation with our design director or senior landscape architect to discuss your ideas and scope of the project so that a design brief can be formulated. This meeting is an opportunity for us to get to know how the garden will be used, any likes or dislikes and carry out a brief overview survey of the garden including taking some photographs and outline measurements. After this meeting we will send you a design proposal and associated fees. We will summarise your brief as per our discussions during the consultation.

SITE SURVEY AND ANALYSIS

Before the design process begins the first step is for us to carry out a survey and analysis of the space. This will be carried out by our in house design team for smaller projects. For larger gardens and landscapes we will organise for a specialist land surveyor to collect all of the information required. This will include plotting boundaries, changes of level, any buildings, services, trees or existing features you wish to retain.

CONCEPT PLAN

Following the survey we will produce a simple concept plan of the garden design. This will show you the overall layout and scale of features that are proposed in the new garden. In some circumstances we will produce some alternative layouts but our designers usually get a strong feel for the right way forward for the design following the consultation. We can discuss any amendments and tweaks to the design before we develop the master plan.

MASTER PLAN

This is the final layout plan for the garden that will show the final position of the main features. This is what the landscapers will use to set out the garden and build from.

ELEVATION DRAWINGS

We will produce ‘skeleton’ elevation drawings if required for any boundary features or structures within the design for the landscapers to quote and work from. Colour elevation drawings will be produced to show you how the garden will look when completed.

CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS

Construction drawings will be produced for any bespoke features in the design. For most designs, landscapers will build from the master plan and elevation drawings however construction drawings will be produced for more complex projects where it is necessary to produce formal tender documents.

PLANTING PLANS

A planting schedule will list all of the proposed planting, plant specification, quantities and sizes. This will be accompanied by a mood board with images of the selected planting. A precise planting plan can be produced showing the exact locations of the plants. In some circumstances, our preference is to produce a plant schedule and source the best plants available for the budget rather than meticulously plot plants on paper. The plants can then be set out on site and the exact positions chosen to suit the shape and habit of the particular specimen 

LIGHTING PLANS

We can produce lighting plans to complement the garden design tailored to how you use the space. This includes specification of fittings.

BUILDING THE GARDEN

If you give the garden design the green light, we can arrange the landscaping build and any associated contractors such as electricians. Depending on the scope of the project, this could be done by our teams at Eden Gardens, or by your building contractor. When the hard landscaping (paving, walls etc.) is completed, our horticulturists will then plant the garden for you.

AFTERCARE

We can produce a maintenance schedule for the ongoing care of your garden. Some of our clients are happy to carry out their own garden maintenance as the majority of our designs are very low maintenance. Alternatively Eden Gardens can provide you with a full follow up garden maintenance service.
