The Design Process

Our four design services (Malvern, Hidcote, Kew and Chelsea) are individually priced to help you choose the most appropriate service based on the size of your garden and your potential landscaping spend.

Whichever design service you choose, you will receive a unique, personalised experience with the same level of exceptional customer care.

Introductory meeting

An informal meeting to discuss your ideas over a cup of coffee. We do not charge for this meeting, however, if you are located more than 20 miles away from our head office, fees will apply.

Chosen Design Service

At the introductory meeting, we will explain our four design services and advise which service is most suited to your needs based on your total project spend for the build, and also the size of your garden. 

Site Survey

Once you have instructed us to produce you a design, we will return carry out a topographical survey, as well as complete a site analysis checklist.

Questionnaire / Brief

We will ask you to complete a detailed design questionnaire; your answers providing us with valuable insight to ensure we fully understand your brief, which will enable us to produce your concept designs.

Mood boards

Once we have collated all the information we need from the design questionnaire, we will produce a pictorial mood board detailing different material options, planting styles and hard landscaping features.  The feedback enabling us to move onto your concept designs.

Hand drawn Concept Designs

The feedback from the questionnaire and mood board provides us with the information we need to produce two concept designs.  Each concept drawing is bespoke and original and unique to you. Drawing them by hand showcases the designers personality and artistic flair and provides a personal touch.

Design Meeting

Once you have had chance to review your concept design drawings, a meeting will be arranged to discuss the designs with a view to evolve one or aspects of both into a final design.  We will also provide samples of materials.

Final Design

We will evolve your concept into a final design using our graphics software.  You will receive a 2D Overview, 3D Visualisation images, Fundamental Planting Plan and Full Construction Notes.

The Malvern design service has been created for Clients who have a small suburban garden, roof terrace, courtyard or wish to focus on specific areas within their garden.

Regardless how small your outdoor space might be, transforming it to connect with nature cannot be underestimated.  A small space is an extension to your home; an outside room where you can relax and entertain.

Small gardens can be transformed to create spaces influenced by differing cultures, capturing the available light.  However, this alone will not make a comfortable place to sit and relax; there are many ways small spaces can be made inviting; creating privacy, hiding ugly views, planting styles, subtle lighting and bold colours.

The key to garden design, especially small spaces is to understand your needs before creating a harmonious link, creating a design that flows which is bold in colour, texture and interest.

Case Study: 'A Taste of Morocco'

This design service is our most popular choice with our clients, primarily because the average size garden in the UK ranges between 150-180m2.

Design is important for any size garden and the opportunities for gardens which are larger are endless, as you can be more adventurous with the space available; creating different zones and moods within these areas.

Typically, gardens of this size are situated in built up areas, where privacy from neighbouring properties can be a concern. Incorporating structures into a garden, such as a pergola or outside room can be one way to create private areas.

Design is important for any size garden but the opportunities for gardens which are larger are endless, as you can be more adventurous with the space available, creating different zones and moods within these areas. 

Typically gardens of this size can be situated in built up areas, where privacy from neighbouring properties can be a concern. By incorporating structures into a garden, such as a pergola, sunken areas with clever planting techniques or introducing an outside room can be one way to create private zones.

Case Study: 'An Angled Approach'

We recently hired Gardens of Reflection to design and landscape our garden, and we couldn't be happier with the results. We contacted them after a very disappointing experience with a previous landscaper, and from the start they showed great patience and understanding. We changed our minds multiple times during the design process, and Steve, Eve and the rest of the team were always accommodating and willing to make adjustments.

We are beyond delighted with the transformation of our garden. The final results far exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't be happier with the beautiful space they have created for us. - Gareth & Louise
