Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
Designs for All Seasons
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"As a Lighting Designer, I designed the exterior lighting to complement the garden design by Selina Botham of Designs for all Seasons & then my company, Ornamental Garden Lighting Limited, supplied & installed all the fittings. Selina was very professional throughout what was an extremely complex landscaping and lighting job and testament to her project management of the entire job was a truly delighted client and a finished garden to be proud of."
- Mike Shackleton
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"I hired Christine to transform my "new build" lawn into a family garden. She spent time getting to know us, took our ideas on board, and came up with a gorgeous design that ticked all the boxes. Christine oversaw the construction and planting which was a smooth experience with no unexpected surprises. She takes a keen interest in all aspects of the garden, and continues to assist with the larger maintenance items. Christine is very creative and has a fantastic insight into how the garden will develop throughout the seasons and the years. She is visionary and is able to clearly articulate the vision and inspire. She truly loves what she does and this is very evident. We continue to work together to tweak aspects of the garden to create fresh interest and I always look forward to her visits. Christine is an absolute pleasure to work with and she has created a garden that still thrills me 5 years on."

Ayegardening Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"Aye Gardening completed a re- landscaping project for us in Jan 2017. Although not a large area it was quite a complicated project involving different levels, drainage issues, access issues and heavy clay soils. We found them to be extremely professional, always on time and made many excellent suggestions. We will certainly use them again, we are delighted with the results."

Tom Howard Garden Design and Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"We were recommended Tom by a friend who had worked with him previously and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to further people. He has in fact already worked with a member of my staff! Tom knows his market well and is experienced and confident in leading his clients through the design / landscaping process. We started off our front garden being totally re-designed but because we were so pleased with Tom's work we went on to have our rear garden landscaped which we could not be more pleased with. Tom has a great eye and I really do highly recommend him!"

Your team were a pleasure to have around, working relentlessly to finish the project to high standard, on time and on budget. We happily recommend Kate Eyre to anyone who is looking for professional help with their garden. THANK YOU Renate & Lindsay"

Ruth Willmott Associates
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"This atmospheric garden, a celebration of the female spirit, makes you think. First the tapestry of flowers draws you in: a patchwork of pink and white, including Aquilegia ‘Rose Barlow’, Lupin ‘Blossom’, and Iris sibirica ‘Pink Haze’, dotted with pure white trunked birches, Betula jacquemontii, and edged with tall hedges of yew. Next you notice the curving stone pathway at the heart of the garden representing a DNA double helix, then the silvery sculpture of a naked woman holding her head high, reflected in a series of shadowy water pools rippling outwards. The explanation: Ruth Willmott lost her sister-in-law to breast cancer in 2014 and this garden is her tribute. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, 130 women are diagnosed with it every day. If Ruth’s garden design makes more women check their breasts regularly, it will have done its most important job."

Peter Reader Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"We knew our garden needed a revamp, and we wanted it to be “grown-up” but still welcoming, but had few preconceived ideas. Not being gardeners ourselves, we didn’t have any plant knowledge but knew the styles we did and didn’t like. Peter, through relaxed discussion and an exchange of images, of gardens and plants, somehow managed to gauge the sort of thing we were hoping for. We were genuinely excited by Peter’s design when we saw it on paper and it was a pleasure to see the reality appearing gradually as the work progressed. We now have a garden we love and can be proud of – relaxed and elegant at the same time. Almost a year on, we still smile every time we look out of the window. The garden has remained a wonderful focal point throughout the winter months, thanks to Peter's thoughtful planting, and with Spring not far off, we are looking forward to the bulbs Peter introduced us to putting in an appearance."

Pippa Schofield Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Ashtead, Surrey
"Pippa has been doing a phased garden project for us over the course of a 3-year house improvement project and at every stage has given us first class advice, coupled with wonderful planting schemes and a more lately a landscape design to transform an area of garden previously housing a grotty summer house and a nasty patio. We now have a stunning pergola, a seating area bordered by formal beds full of Pippa's carefully chosen shrubs and trees and a quiet haven in the midst of busy west London. Pippa's ability lies in her skill in interpreting her clients' wishes and matching that with the existing limitations and potential of a garden. We wanted a very English look, with a mix of formal and informal areas - and we are completely thrilled with the result. She is also an extremely practical person, with a flexibility to work around inevitable changes while on the job. She is also very reliable, and an excellent communicator. Cannot recommend her company highly enough."

What is a landscape architect?

A landscape architect will handle all design, supply, construction and administrative elements of your garden or landscaping project. They will take into account your needs, the Ashtead, Surrey climate and unique advantages and constraints of the landscape architecture. Typically, work will be based on ecological and environmental considerations, and a garden will be planned not only to look its best but also to facilitate future maintenance and growth so that it continues to flourish. A Ashtead, Surrey landscape architect can also design any outdoor buildings that are to be featured in your garden. Everything from design blueprints through to the plants themselves should be provided by your Ashtead, Surrey landscape architect. If there is other architectural development taking place on your site, bring the landscape architect in as early as possible.

The expertise a landscape architect can apply to understanding your space and the natural environment could be vital to planning your project. Let your Ashtead, Surrey landscape architect work closely with your architect, surveyor and any other contractors in order to develop landscape architecture that works in accordance with any other construction. This is important from a design perspective as well as on a practical level – changes to the grading of a landscape and modifications such as drainage can have serious implications on the viability of your land for extensive building and structural works. In order to resolve any planning permission issues, submit all applications for building and landscape architecture together, well ahead of the project.

What is a garden designer?

The scope of garden designers, or landscape gardeners, is often more limited to green space projects which will optimise your existing outdoor space rather than altering the landscape architecture as a whole. Whereas landscape architects specialise in the structural aspect of garden planning and building, garden designers in Ashtead, Surrey will carry out projects that are of aesthetic and horticultural value. Landscape gardeners will make your garden the best version of itself with features such as walkways, patios, water features, fences and lighting, as well as choosing the right plants, trees and flowers. The practical role of a garden designer may vary by firm – some offer just the plans, requiring a separate contractor, while others fulfil the project in its entirety, from conceptualisation of the landscape gardening to construction. Don’t be put off by the former if you happen to find a good Ashtead, Surrey garden designer that you like – he or she will have local industry connections to introduce you to quality, reliable gardening professionals with whom they have existing relationships. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & garden designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Lawn & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios, Sheds & Summerhouses.

How do I choose landscape architects or garden designers in Ashtead, Surrey?

When choosing your Ashtead, Surrey garden designer or landscape architect, be sure to research their qualifications and look at examples of their previous work. A portfolio of previous landscape architecture or garden projects is important to ascertain both their credentials as well as their style. Once you have shortlisted or chosen your architect or designer, an on-site meeting is essential so they can see exactly what they’ll be working with. Stay briefed on all plans and developments, both before and during the project as a plan you approved previously may change during the course of the project. Be very clear on your budget – just like plans, costs may alter while work is underway so ensure your professional keeps you informed and does not incur additional expense without approval. If you are open-minded and budget-conscious, consider approaching new graduates keen for experience, who may negotiate a lower rate than more experienced professionals.
