How To Design The Garden Of Your Dreams

Garden design around a barn conversion

Right now, you’ve probably got an image in your head of the perfect Garden for you and your family.

Whether that’s larger open spaces for the kids to run around and play in, more cosy and intimate spots to relax in or a far more Grand space for you to entertain your friends and family.

No matter what your desires for the space are, it’s important to get your dreams out of your head and onto paper as a minimum. That way you can see if it’s all going to work correctly the way you imagine it.

You can see if everything is going to fit in the places you want them, and you can use it to help you work within your budget.

Now if you’ve got even the smallest amount of drawing ability, it’s more than possible to put your ideas onto paper and start to map out what your new Garden will look like, and what shapes, sizes and materials you’re going to need.

You can do this with as little as a pencil, a 30cm ruler and some dotted paper.

Of course, you can get a lot more technical and use more advanced stationery–or even attempt to download some software and design it straight on your computer–leaving you the ability to properly visualise your project before it even begins.

The downside to that though of course, the software can be expensive and difficult to use, needing to be trained how to use the software properly.

Whereas opting to do it (as some might say) the old fashioned way can you be certain you’ve got your scale correct, and the materials and products selected and will fit the future landscape properly–giving you the most efficient use of all the space you have available?

If you hire someone to come and design your new Garden for you, you can put your mind at rest that you’re going to tick all the boxes that need to be ticked. Everything will be accounted for, including getting the correct measurements taken, and all the materials and products fitting to scale, with the correct amounts of each product needed too.

Now of course, that’s if you hire someone that’s got the required skills and experience. And there are lots of charlatans out there that’ll over promise and under deliver. So it’s always worth checking the history of the company you’re looking at hiring.

Have they got multiple years of experience? (We’ve got over 100 years combined experience in the team)

Do they have genuine testimonials from previous work they have completed? (See some of ours here)

Can you see pictures of previous work they have completed? (See some of ours here)

Have they won any awards for work they have completed in the past?

Are they accredited and recognised by the industry’s governing body? (See our accreditations and awards here)

Look out for these things as a minimum, and you can feel much more comfortable that you are on your way to hiring the right people for the job.
