Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
Rich Green Garden Design & Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"My husband and I had been thinking about investing in our front and back garden for some time. Some close friends of ours had recently finished work on their garden space so we went to visit them in May last year to see their new space, we were so impressed with the transformation we became excited and more determined to change our own garden which at the time looked empty, disorganised, cluttered and uninspiring. We wanted a space which extended our home where we could relax and unwind during the summer months, something low-maintenance and modern in style. After looking at the website we contacted Rich Green Gardens and arranged for Rich to visit us for an informal chat and to see our garden. We discussed ideas and he brought along his portfolio and we looked at images we really liked on the RichGreenGardens pinterest and instagram sites. From there Rich went away with our favourite ideas, put them into designs and returned the following week. We chose one we felt happy with, discussed costs and agreed a plan. 2 months later the garden was complete and we are so happy with the result, it totally changed our summer and we now enjoy the space which feels like an additional room to our home, we've had a couple of barbecues over the summer and everyone has complimented how cool the garden is. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend Rich Green Gardens for creativity, design and professionalism. Great work!"

"Wild to Wonderful, run by Cathy Cornish, is an excellent garden design company. I used them for a major project in 2008 and was very happy and am using them again now for our current project.

Cathy is also a great gardener and pops in twice a year to help with major prunings etc."

"Highly knowledgeable about all aspects of planting in the garden. Impressive practical knowledge and skills when it comes to maintenance of a garden, bearing in mind budget implications and restrictions. There is not much Bramley Apple doesn't know about garden design, demonstrating a willingness and skill to research an effective solution to problems such as poor soil, challenging landscapes or difficult areas within the garden. After five years, our garden is maturing into a wonderful space which is used daily and has given us such lasting pleasure. We couldn't have wished for a better design!"

Cool Gardens Landscaping Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"I am over the moon with my new garden. It looks like a cutting edge show garden at Chelsea and random neighbours have been dropping by asking for tours. The team at Cool Gardens work really hard and are motivated and enthusiastic, and everyone is very good at what they do. There is an excellent builder and interiors designer working alongside the garden designers and I have ended up with a very contemporary and welcoming home that is the envy of my street."

Roeder Landscape Design Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"We have employed the services of Luke from Roeder Landscapes over the past two years in planting up new beds, a small orchard and for lawn maintenance We are very happy with the results. His designs took full consideration of our ideas and built on these with further options taking into account soil conditions and aspect. Great attention was paid to bed preparation prior to planting which ensured the best growing conditions. Work was carried out efficiently with the minimum of fuss. He is now in the process of planting a wild flower meadow for us."

Rebecca Webb Garden Designs
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"Rebecca met us to discuss our ideas, then proposed three alternative designs, for both the front and back gardens, each of which was true to our suggestions, but provided interesting elements of her own. We particularly appreciated her ideas for planting, as our knowledge was somewhat limited. At each step of the way, through landscaping to final planting and subsequent maintenance help, Rebecca was responsive, efficient and dedicated to quality results. She collaborated particularly well with the landscaper, and between them they produced results we are delighted with, to time, and to expected budget. We would highly recommend her services."

My Country Garden Design Solutions
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"Faith provided me with a design and plant sourcing service. My garden was tired and several older shrubs where really past their best. Faith gave me the confidence to remove and replace instead of trying to work around old plants she also pointed out areas in the garden that were just not working form a design point of you and why. Which helped me justify making some radical changes and completely re-work the garden layout. She also pointed out how the larger trees in the garden needed maintenance and with Faiths team the work was carried out quickly and efficiently But the thing I found really tough was trying to understand which plants to put where and how to create the style of garden i was aiming for. This is where Faith was amazing, her plant knowledge and understanding was superb, she was instantly able to identify the sort of plants that would work for my soil and shade, and how to lay out a plan that gave interesting foliage and colour from early spring right through to autumn. Her clever design has given me a focal point and interesting paths so I can really appreciate my garden from several angles. The planting plan has provided a flow and the colour palette is exactly as I wanted. I never really appreciated how important it was to have a nice garden until now and my husband and i look out everyday and love the new space that has been created. Thank you."

Laara Copley-Smith Garden & Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"Builders have recently taken out or damaged many of my shrubs and plants. I decided to use this as an opportunity to do something new in the garden and, to this end, I consulted Laara. As I did not have a lot of money to spend, we arranged a short consultation with a single site visit to focus on creating some shape and structure for the garden. Laara helped me to focus my ideas and together we gradually built up a picture of how my garden could look. As she was on site, Laara could easily tell me which of my ideas and wishes were viable and which of them were unrealistic. At the end of the visit, Laara sketched a plan of the garden with all the details that we had talked about and agreed upon. I can now use this plan to make the changes in the garden in stages. Over time, I will be able to create a new and fresh garden without having to do it all in one single expensive overhaul. Laara has a nice light touch. She guided me away from unworkable ideas and took the workable ones and expanded and developed them. She simplified my choices as my mind had become overwhelmed with all the possible options. At the same time, she recognised my desire for change and gave me some good ideas to work with. I would recommend Laars for her ability to understand and interpret client needs."

Rory Andrews Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Reading, Berkshire
"Rory re-designed our garden three years ago. I found his advice most informed and professional. More to the point he was able to take my somewhat vague ideas and transform them into exactly what I was looking for! All with great charm and grace. He has since come to see us to check how the garden grows and add to the planting scheme. Always full of good advice. I would highly recommend Rory if you are looking for someone who is creative and can translate your dream into a reality. He has a very good knowledge of plants and what will work plus some excellent ideas for landscaping and making the most of your garden. We were thrilled and the positive feedback from our friends and guests says it all."

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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire 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 Reading, Berkshire?


When choosing your Reading, Berkshire 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.
