Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
Christine Wilkie Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"I really enjoyed working with Christine and her garden team, Urban Scaping. She understood my brief perfectly and executed it beautifully. She has a lovely easy going nature and thorough understanding of planting, hard materials and embellishments. I love the finished result."
- Amanda Wright
Tierra Designs Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"Tierra Design carried out gardening work in our back garden. This was only a small project but try completed it professionally, quickly and cost-effectively. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services."
- Hyde Electrical Services Ltd
Kate Gould Gardens
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"With her amazing vision Kate Gould transformed my garden/patio into a modern inviting outside space. The space is divided into 2 "rooms", one leading out from the sitting room, the other from the master bedroom, divided by a water feature, a pergola and a miniature hedge. The whole area is paved with recessed lighting to maximise the effect at night, and a wall at the far end is disguised by mirrors - creating an illusion of a much larger outside space and reflecting the light. The work had been carried out to perfection by the dedicated team recommended by Kate. We are delighted with Kate's creation and the wonderful service we received from her team. It has become a talking point in terms of garden design possibilities among our friends and neighbours."

Ruth Willmott Associates
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"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. Breastcancernow.org"

Tom Howard Garden Design and Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"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!"
- Alexandra Davidson
Green Tree Garden Design Ltd
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"I loved Fiona's design in a friend's garden, so asked for her details. I have used Green Tree Garden Design since then (Jan 2013), both for specific design projects, and the ongoing maintenance of my garden. Fiona is warm, friendly and professional, and immediately put me at ease. She designed my front garden first. She listened carefully and spent a lot of time with me, walking round the garden and sitting at the kitchen garden with sketches and photographs of plants, to make sure she got things right. I liked the fact that she worked with my existing garden, rather than removing everything and starting again, as some other companies had suggested. She also planted the garden up in stages, and consulted me on adding more planting, so I felt the garden evolved over time, which was just what I wanted. Fiona has now prepared a beautiful design for my back garden - again working with what is already there - and work will start on that in February 2014. Fiona works closely with a team of three highly skilled, friendly gardeners, who really "know their stuff". She can also be seen working alongside them in the garden sometimes, as well as doing the design work. I couldn't recommend Green Tree Garden Design more highly."

Peter Reader Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"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."

Kate Eyre Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"To Kate and her team: Our family is delighted with the new garden that you have created for us. We did not know what to do with our former dull and neglected garden. Your inspirational and thoughtful design has transformed our garden into a joyful living space, full of colour and vibrant shrubs and flowers, which we cherish and enjoy. 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"

Pippa Schofield Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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 Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire?


When choosing your Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire 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.
