Greenvision Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
"I hired Greenvision to re design my front garden as i wanted it to look more appealing as well as increasing privacy from the busy street. David understood my brief very well and once we had finalized the plans he provided us with a detailed quote. The build was carried out on time and on budget all to a very high standard. I recomend Greenvision Garden Design highly."
- Pamela Dixon
Charlesworth Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
"Robert redesigned the whole of our garden. He took time to understand what we wanted then provided us with a number of a different options so that we can articulate what best suited our requirements. The plot is not a straightforward plot and required creativity of design. After the design was crystallising he then helped us select the right contractor to deliver the scheme. The works were extensive and we were very pleased with the outcome at the time and continue to be so as time has pased and the garden has matured and evolved. Additionally, Robert is really eay to get on with and does not impose his ideas but, instead, works with you to realise your own. Colleagues of mine have also used Robert's services. The end result looks completely different from our garden so it is clear that Robert does provide all his clients with an unique and bespoke service."

Robert Hughes Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
"My husband and I cannot praise Rob and his team high enough. The pictures on this website of the 'Barry garden' are ours. He has since also redesigned our front garden which is also absolutely gorgeous. Extremely friendly, reliable and trustworthy (we left them to do the front with keys to our house whilst on holiday). Thanks Rob, Will and Mark."

Patch of the Planet Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
"My previously boring suburban garden has been transformed into my dream by Patch of the Planet. The whole garden flows with soft lines and shapes and paths lead to different areas of interest - a wildflower area with seat tucked away for peace and for watching the bees, a pond surrounded by beautiful ferns logs and more, a herb and medicinal plant area whose path flows through to my greenhouse and an enclosed meditation area as well as flowing areas of lawn. A lovely new patio area leads me through an arch into all of this. Neil and Dina listened carefully to what I wanted and gave me suggestions and new ideas. They were very knowledgable and a joy to work with. If I changed my mind about anything they were happy to adapt and discuss my thoughts. My garden is no longer a boring rectangular lawn, it is now a beautiful space that I can enjoy and be proud of. I would highly recommend Patch of the Planet if you want to enjoy the experience of transforming your garden."

Garden Ninja Ltd Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
"Lee knows his stuff and is very professional, reliable and friendly. He really is the ideal person to work with you to help make a start on any garden redesign whether that be big or small. I only wish I had known about him years ago before wasting time and money buying the wrong plants and coming up with silly ideas that just didn't work in the long run. He is very passionate about what he does and has a lot of knowledge. We can't recommend Lee highly enough if you want to improve your outdoor space. Abit of inspiration and professional advice can make all the difference."

Dreamscape Gardens
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Manchester
""What a delight! The whole experience given to us by Dan and his team from Dreamscape Gardens was professional from day 1 to the end of the transformation. It’s scary thinking of the cost of a complete makeover to a garden and you wonder if you are going to get ripped off or be disappointed. So let me say loud and clear that you can rest assured this will not be the case with Dreamscape Gardens. Having arranged a visit from them photos and measurements were taken of our garden and the most amazing scaled plans were created to show what it would look like when finished. We had plenty of time to discuss ideas and changes until the finished outline was agreed upon. As everything was ripped out our back garden looked more like “no-man’s land” in a WW 1 battlefield. And then the magic started. Paving, fencing, bedding and lawns. Every step being completed was fascinating. It was even possible to change details as the work progressed. I particularly liked the fact the team kept everything clean, neat and tidy at the end of each day. And once the work was complete Dan was keen to ensure he had put right any little snags or issues we had encountered. You will probably only “make-over“ your garden once so use a professional company like Dreamscape Gardens. You won’t be disappointed!”"

"Caroline fulfilled my dreams by creating a wonderful wildlife pond in my garden. Her professionalism and horticultural knowledge produced a little oasis for the wildlife, and ourselves, to enjoy. Caroline was fantastic at understanding our ideas and transforming them into reality. She was such a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend her .Thanks. Michelle Dawson"

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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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 Manchester 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 Manchester?


When choosing your Manchester 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.

Questions to ask prospective landscape architects or garden designers in Manchester:


  • What do your services include?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been landscape architects or garden designers in Manchester?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar landscape architecture or garden projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
