Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
Earth Designs Garden and Build London and Essex
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
"Matt and Kat make a great duo; Kat's designs are innovative yet practical, she took into consideration the fact that we both work, making the garden low maintenance (although it doesn't look it), we have teenagers so they have somewhere to hang out, plus a little one on the way so she incorporated plenty of space for us add a tipi (another of Kat's brilliant and unique ideas). Matt's workforce were reliable and efficient, with the ability to foresee issues and address them rather than cause delays. They were polite, cleaning up after themselves each day and generally doing a smashing job. We are over the moon with our new garden, all our visitors have commented on the amazing job and we can't wait to see what it looks like during the different seasons. Both myself and my partner would wholeheartedly recommend Earth Designs."
- Lauren Dean
Mark Lane Designs
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
"I am really happy with the design that Mark did for me. He was professional, helpful, courteous and his plant knowledge was incredible. He worked very well with my contractor and had great ideas. He provided me with hand drawn sketches as well as cad designs and 3D visuals. I can not recommend him highly enough!"
- Jasen Cavalli
Daryl Gannon Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
"I hired Daryl Gannon Landscapes to undertake a redesign of my front garden in order to put my property on the market and I was amazed at the transformation that Daryl made.

Fuchsia Green Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
"Lisa and her team transformed our overgrown impractical garden into the funky fun room outside our young family needed. We came to Lisa with some firm ideas about what we wanted and not only did she listen to those but her designs enhanced our initial thoughts. Lisa is professional, insightful, brilliant at what she does and lovely to know we would strongly recommend her. Ours is the curvy garden."
- Angela Hayward
Kristina Clode Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Canterbury, Kent
"Kristina created a beautiful garden from the more or less bare field that came with our house. It was a really awkward L-shape with an unsightly view of the nextdoor outbuilding and Kristina managed to create a garden of three compartments which made sense of the space, with a pleached hornbeam hedge to screen the view. Kristina listened to all our requirments and delivered a stunning colourful flower garden with a pergola of our choice as a centrepiece, which gives us joy all the year round. She helped us monitor the progress of the hard landscaping contractors, prepared the beds and planted up the garden to the highest standard all within a short timescale. We have shown our garden for the last two years for the National Gardens Scheme and always receive wonderful comments about it. Kristina continues to oversee our garden and its ongoing development."
- George Terry

She has helped me crystal my bucket list into a workable design providing working drawings for the Landscape contractors including construction,electrical,irrigation and planting elements. She is hugely personable, flexible , full of common sense, very practical with great design flair and mindful of cost implications.

The whole design process was enjoyable and we would love to work with her again.

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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent 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 Canterbury, Kent?


When choosing your Canterbury, Kent 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.
