Growing in popularity over the past two decades contemporary garden design is a great reflection of new fashions and how we live our modern lives.By working with our clients closely we are able to produce garden design solutions and provide landscaping services, tailored to each individual’s lifestyle and daily requirements.In understanding our client’s personal style, we will need to establish what colours, shapes, and themes they are looking to achieve through their contemporary garden design. This will include the entertaining space needed, planting they desire, structure, sound, water, lawn space and so on.This part of the garden design process can often be confusing due to an endless range of choice.We advise a quick tour of our client’s house in order to access an insight into their personal style.We believe that this can work wonders in helping clients decide on their garden design ideas.

Focusing not only on geometrical design, contemporary garden designers will allow the design of our client’s garden to ebb and flow using interconnecting shapes and circles as well as a host of different materials to emphasise the contemporary aspects and feel of the garden.

The Investment 

Many customers worry about the expensive nature of contemporary garden design.For this reason, it is important that our clients understand the investment they are making in their small and large garden designs.We want to ensure quality above quantity and do this by using the very best materials your investment will cover.At the initial consultation we will take time to understand exactly what you wish to invest in and will work to meet your expectations.We are very careful when planning your landscape design and it is vital to us that we work within your specified investment boundaries.In this way we can ensure that there are no hidden and unexpected costs with our landscape design company.

Our garden designs start at around £1,200 but are often based on 10%- 15% of the build costs.Additionally, you can recoup up to 25% of the design costs if we construct the garden for you. 



Contemporary Garden Design - The Design Process


The preliminary conversation allows the garden design team to understand exactly what you are wishing to achieve from landscaping plants to trees, contemporary styles to modern architecture.In addition to desired garden ideas, styles and themes we will also discuss investment and availability.


The consultation will be booked with one of our senior garden designer, and during the consultation we will view your garden and assess its current layout, considering the aspects and ideas you have conveyed to us.

The Survey

During the survey we will take into consideration existing trees and plants, boundaries, structures and height variations in your garden.

Planting Plans

Planting mood boards are provided for large schemes whilst photographs of key Plant Species help clients recognise Latin names for smaller schemes. Planting is extremely important in fulfilling your contemporary garden design.The colours chosen should reflect your personality and the fragrance should indulge your senses.

The Proposal

We will put together a detailed garden design proposal.Using real photos of your garden we will use innovative technology to overlay some design imagery to give you a taste of what your garden will look like post garden design.We will provide an investment explanation, theme plan, the interpretation, landscape and planting strategies and include a detailed mood board of images to convey the various thought, ideas and inspiration behind the design.

The Work

Once you are completely happy and confident with the proposal our creative team of landscape designs will get to work on your approved landscaping services.



Ready to start planning the contemporary garden of your dreams?

Simply complete our contact from so we can understand a little more about what you are looking to achieve and to arrange your FREE one hour consultation. After the initial consultation we will produce design proposals, which includes images relating to your style, needs and investment expectation. Within our design fee we also include a full site survey and topography survey if required, which sets out the scale and potential scope for the garden design. This is then plotted into AutoCAD as our outline for the design and time will be spent sketching out ideas through inspired images and the design brief.  

After that, we will plot our idea and concept into AutoCAD and when complete we then import the line drawing into PhotoShop where the design goes through a CGI process to add plants, structures, furniture and points of reference. This is further enhanced by adding shadow, embossing and detailing the design.

We believe in keeping you fully informed throughout the whole process. We will send you a draft concept so we can ensure we are meeting your expectations, and of course iron out any issues that may be relevant. This makes the design process totally interactive and ensures we deliver a design that you’ll love.

Once this is completed we then produce a 3D CGI concept image of one or two key areas of the garden allowing you to see the space from a different prospective. Finally, we create a planting plan and, subject to proceeding to the build stage, we also supply detail construction schematics.
