We design and create  beautiful, considered and sensitive gardens. Our designs are based on an ecological and sustainable future.

DESIGN    LANDSCAPING   GARDEN MAINTENANCE

We are a leading landscape and garden design studio in Bath, Somerset. Our garden designs are the first step in creating your stunning, magical and romantic garden to enhance your home. I love naturalistic planting schemes juxtaposed with clean lines of topiary. Encouraging wildlife and sensitivity to the garden’s location is key to my designs. So too is the use of local materials, crafts and nurseries with whom I have built up great relationships.
Having been on the tools myself now for 15 years I understand the complexities of the build and construction and I am conscious of the costs involved.
Getting a design is a financial commitment but in the long term it will save you money and give you the well thought out, planned and gorgeous garden that you have always dreamed of.
I can design your garden and I will explore commissions from small courtyards through to large estates.
I hope you will find that my portfolio speaks for itself.

Debbie

“Our garden designed and built by Tom and his team is a place of tranquility, beauty and a family place to relax. Tom brought the countryside into our magical country cottage garden and we absolutely love it!”

Deborah & Jonathan

“His intelligent planting, meandering red brick paths, olive trees in impressive oak planters on the adjoining patio, and care to take into consideration the surrounding views created just the pretty garden I wanted. His hard working team were amazing, and the whole job was quick and expertly done. Thanks Tom!”

CREDENTIALS

WE ARE A REGISTERED MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL LANDSCAPERS AND WE HAVE BEEN ACCREDITED BY TRUST MARK. WE ARE MEMBERS OF THE RHS.

WHAT WE DO

We believe in classy, timeless and elegant gardens. We believe that patience is a virtue and that your garden will grow with you. We want to spend the time with you and your garden to get the very best from it. We believe that the client is an equal creative individual in the design and gardening process. Whether you have a full-blown artistic vision, an inkling of a theme or simply a one-off feature in mind, we will work with you to transform your garden.

GARDEN DESIGN

The design process entails:
  1. An initial consultation followed by a return visit to discuss the project in more depth. We will discuss your gardening vision and you can gain inspiration from our vibrant mood boards and portfolio. The initial consultation cost is £60 + VAT which includes the design proposal which outlines our ideas for your project and design fees. You have not committed to anything at this stage. 
  2. If we are commissioned to undertake your design a full garden survey is then undertaken. Sometimes an independent company may be required to undertake a topological survey of the site. We undertake the surveys of simpler sites.
  3. The creative bit then ensues where your garden design will be put together. This includes a CAD top plan, 3D images and construction drawings where relevant.
  4. The moment you’ve been waiting for – a design presentation meeting is arranged.
  5. comprehensive quote accompanies the design.
  6. We will tweak the design with your input before agreeing on the final plan.
  7. Design fees start from £500 + VAT. This includes – usually 2-4 meetings on site, an annotated top plan, planting plan, 3D illustrations and planting schedule. Printed and electronic plans are provided.

PLANTING DESIGN

You may just want a planting design for your existing garden space; a whole new look; or a newly themed area. We will work with an abundance of colour and texture to come up with vibrant planting schemes ensuring all year round interest and intrigue. We advocate planting for biodiversity. This service can include a maintenance schedule.
PLANT SOURCING | BED PREPARATION | DIGGING IN 
Further to designing and sourcing the plants we will dig them all in with the help from our carefully considered nurseries whom we have built up great relationships with over the years.
Improving Your Soil
Vitally important is making sure the soil has been tested and prepared before planting – this will determine what plants will grow successfully. Improving your soil depends whether its clay, silt or sandy. Generally the best way to improve your soil is to incorporate compost or organic matter (manure) year on year. In some cases it may require you to wait a season or two before planting is suitable. Please do call if you require manure or compost for improving you soil.

LANDSCAPING

After agreeing a date, and contracts are signed, we will start the landscaping.
To name a few things we do:
  • Masonry – paving and walling.
  • Carpentry – decking, pergolas, arbours etc.
  • Bespoke Structures – green roof sheds, walkways, green oak furniture.
  • Treehouses.

MAINTENANCE

  • Topiary
  • Orchard pruning
  • Hedge cutting
  • Lawn mowing
  • Mulching + feeding planting schemes
