Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
Stuart Barfoot Garden and Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"Stuart Barfoot transformed La Rocca’s garden from a building site into a paradise. Stuart listened attentively to our vision and came up with designs that exceeded our expectations in every way. Charming, reliable, honest and courteous it was a huge pleasure to work with him over the last 18 months as he brought terrace by terrace to life with his confident vision and extraordinary flair. He knew exactly what does and doesn’t grow in Italy and his attention to detail from hard landscaping through to planting has given us a garden beyond our wildest dreams. He worked well with our architects, regarding lighting and building needs, and was diplomatic, friendly and firm. We would welcome the chance to work with him again in the future."

Anita Sullivan Gardens
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"We have a small city-centre back garden and two young children. Anita visited and talked through our ideas for how we could create a safe space for the children to play and also somewhere we could sit and relax in. She listened to our ideas, asked questions and made suggestions, to help understand exactly what we needed. The resulting designs, planting plan and cost breakdown were clear, beautifully put together and promptly delivered, and have given us a brilliant plan to follow. Anita was patient, informed and creative, and also very relaxed about whether we went ahead with her plan in full, with her help to build the structures and do the planting, or chose another supplier, or just undertook the plans step by step ourselves. The whole experience was incredibly helpful and enjoyable. We're following Anita's design together in stages ourselves and the garden is already transformed into a space we use everyday."

Anna Helps Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"Moving in to a brand new house we had a blank canvas with which to work, and count ourselves most fortunate when we were recommended to Anna by a neighbour. It was clear from the outset that Anna works with a process, first asking us what our priorities are and how much time we would be willing to give to ongoing maintenance etc. the brief we gave her was for low maintenance, year round colour, koi pool and dog friendly. At every point Anna exceeded our expectations. She has also kept her word by performing regular garden check-ups to make sure we're on track. Highly recommended."

Garden Design Guru
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"Our project was to develop a medium-sized garden, four miles from the Sussex coast, which faces south-west and suffers strong winds, lethal for many plant species, Barry Chambers of Changing Scenes, of Bognor Regis, successfully designed a colourful garden of raised flower beds, mature trees, large shrubs, a vegetable and sitting area and a stone beach with seaside plants, creating a frame for views across fields and glorious sunsets. The work was put out to tender to about five firms, with husband and wife team Keymer Landscapes, of Barnham, Bognor Regis, who I would also recommend, selected. Barry Chambers' knowledge of plants, and their survival in these conditions, is excellent, as is his ability to explain his choices without pretension. The construction and gardening was hands-on supervised by Barry who regularly returns, post-project, to add plants and check the progress of the garden and its maintenance. Amanda Pearce, Highleigh, Chichester."

Acres Wild
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"Acres Wild - Talented garden designers I can't recommend these guys highly enough. 14 years ago I built a house on a high Wealden site in East Sussex and brought in Acres Wild to design the gardens. Their brief was to make it look like it had been there for ever, even though they basically started with a muddy field. They created a strong structure with a series of garden 'rooms' which became less formal further away from the house, and used heavy planting. They work on the basis of survival of the fittest. Since then the garden has matured and been featured in several magazines. The walled potager, built with 200-year-old bricks, even won a Sussex Heritage Award two years after it was built. If you want a formal knot garden or something very contemporary with water dribbling down a sheet of metal then Ian and Debbie would probably not be your first port of call. But if you want a stunning garden that you'll love to live in then you won't find better garden designers."

Lilybud Gardens by Design

"I used Lilybud Gardens to design a large border in my back garden. Lisa was very knowledgable and profesional, we spent couple of hours choosing best plants based on the amount of sun, seasonal interest and colour pattern. I enjoyed getting involved and I am looking forward to planting."
- Karolina Karolina
Ayegardening Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"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."

Paul Dix Gardens
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Brighton, East Sussex
"Moved to new house where garden had been totally neglected by previous tenants. Paul did an excellent job of strimming and cutting back the lawn, and expertly cut borders either side. Nine months later we now have shrubs, bushes, a flat lawn and even tomatoes! Highly recommend Paul for his professional workmanship and excellent advice."

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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex 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 Brighton, East Sussex?

When choosing your Brighton, East Sussex 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.
