Our Designers

Before we build, our skilled designers create your plans

How we work with designers
Due to the individual nature of Garden Design, we do not have an 'In-House' designer.
We have access to a number of Self Employed Garden Designers, each with their own specialty and skill set
When an enquiry is made, we match your requirements, in terms of garden type required, budget, materials and garden size with one of the designers we work with.
You can, of course, look at the designers' websites and make your own choice, or you can meet up with more than one designer, and make a decision when you have chatted with them and looked at their portfolio.
You can also provide your own independently sourced design for us to quote from.
If your own design is provided, we will need it to be drawn to scale on minimum A3 sized paper, and to a maximum scale of 1:100.
Designs should include a material specification, be surveyed to include level changes and have heights from a datum point clearly indicated.
The more detail that is included, the more accurate our initial construction pricing can be.
Meet our designers
Take a look at their websites and see who you feel is best suited to what you have in mind. Let us know your chosen designer and we will make contact on your behalf and ask them if they can help with your project. We will provide a quote for the construction of the garden, using the completed design

Gill Gardener - Lowick Design & Gardening

My true passion and speciality lies with plant design, offering detailed planting schemes on all scales. I also offer mentoring for clients, teaching them how to care for their garden once planted. I have successfully completed and been awarded a diploma in Plant Design by The London School of Garden Design. I am truly at my happiest when in the garden and have been fortunate enough to have worked in the horticultural and garden design industry for the last 11 years. I gain inspiration for plant design from many different sources; plants discovered in their natural habitat or catching the light in a particular way can spark a design idea.

She has designed gardens across the UK for private individuals, schools and charity spaces and loves to see the positive impact these places have on the people who use them. Be it through creating space to relax in or, to ignite an interest in gardening and the natural world.
