The First Step of Garden Design


Back through the cloudy fog of time, through those misty water-coloured memories, I can still remember one of my very first lessons in Garden Design. Sat in a classroom at the Royal Horticultural Society‘s Wisley Gardens in England I was given a rectangular, wooden box. The brief was fairly simple – I was expected to fill that box with the client’s wishes and dreams. Creating a defined vision was the first, and most crucial step in landscape design.

Define and Refine Your Landscape Design Vision


You have to think big, bold and beautiful.


Discover unique garden ideas by surrounding yourself with inspiration. Look beyond the confines of other garden designs in magazines and on the internet and stray in to furniture design, in to architecture, in to art! So much of what makes those projects beautiful is a sense of flow, proportion, grace, scale and mass. Borrowing from their energy can kick start a fascinating journey. Ensure to keep landscape design ideas general. Right now it’s about creating an impression, a palette of concepts to apply to the canvas once you’ve prepared it.

A garden’s place in the home shouldn’t be diminished by the ordinary or everyday exigencies. It’s your own space to connect with what’s imperative and real. Let us guide you in the process with our Outdoor Vision Tool
