rob1Garden design in Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire

Our garden designer is Rob Morris who studied at The Cotswold Gardening School in Gloucestershire. He has a passion for gardens and plants and has had three gardens of his own designed so is very familiar with the process and what it means for the client in particular. 

Garden design can be a very simple process of providing a planting plan for your garden, or, it can be a complete rethink involving landscape works and a detailed design to fit your property and surroundings. We always listen to our clients first and foremost to ensure we understand what you want to achieve, and equally, how much you want to spend. 

We work with a number of suppliers to ensure you receive specialist advice for the various work that may be required – hard landscaping (steps, terraces), ponds or water features, electrical work, drainage and so on. Where you have a garden in excess of a quarter of an acre a land survey will be required to enable us to produce the most efficient and professional design for you. 

Rob is a Student member of the Society of Garden Designers and a link is provided to the Society’s site for further information www.sgd.org.uk 

We do not charge for an initial meeting at your property and there is no obligation following this meeting if you decide to not go ahead or look elsewhere. 

We’re based near Henley-in-Arden in Warwickshire and cover all of Warwickshire including Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon as well as Northamptonshire and the West Midlands. Please feel free to contact us either via email or the phone.
  

Examples of work we have been involved with…

Barn Court, Warwickshire (2018)

Please select an image to see a larger version. 

This garden had an established pond and border that was blocking the view of the wider garden and surrounding trees.

The design focused on the view from the house and involved installation of a new terrace and seating area. A natural stone water feature and symmetrical perennial bedding radiates from the circular seating area and maximises views of the surrounding garden.

Maud Cottage, Warwickshire

This project followed on from an extensive refurbishment of the house and involved new terracing, borders and extensive planting.

The property adjoins fields and is very exposed to the elements so choice of plants was very important. We supplied all of the plants which the client then planted – following our detailed instructions.

Good irrigation of the first-season shrubs and perennials was essential.

Lark Rise, Northamptonshire

Lark Rise was a new-build stone house in a Northamptonshire village. The garden was designed from scratch as you can see from the before and after photos. 

The owners wanted year-round interest and colour in the garden with a wildlife area. It also had to be easy to maintain so all borders are edged with boards to make grass mowing straightforward. 

There were both sunny and shady aspects of the garden so plants were carefully chosen to ensure they had optimum growth conditions.

Copper Beech Barn, Northamptonshire

This barn conversion was on the edge of farmland and had an extensive paddock area and complex levels. The design was done in conjunction with a local designer and planting was implemented by ourselves. 

Large quantities of soil were removed to create the new oval lawn and extensive use of gravel kept the cost reasonable.
