This can help form the concept of your landscape design, but every element is bespoke to your requirements. You can count on our garden designers if you are based in Greater Manchester or the surrounding areas.

Cottage gardens

This distinct style uses informal designs and traditional materials, its plantings can be dense with a mixture of edible as well as ornamental plantings. Modern cottage gardens can include grasses and native plants. Roses are a cottage garden favourite; the cottage garden has grace and charm.

Kitchen gardens

Kitchen gardens can have any level of crops from just a few rows of salad crops to huge walled areas to keep the owner self-sufficient in fruit, veg and cut flowers. Regardless of their size, what they all have is a degree of formality and symmetry.

Gardens for entertaining

Here you can get to use your garden to its full potential, the entertaining garden should provide space for sitting and circulation, maybe an outdoor kitchen or designated BBQ area, and that all important lighting to enable you to entertain after the sun goes down.

Plant enthusiasts gardens

This is for those of us who primarily want to enjoy the benefits of plants in our gardens, be it caring for them, looking at them or growing, cutting and picking them, we will design a garden to suit you.

Water gardens

Water features are always a design favourite. This is because the sound of water in a garden always adds that added dimension, not to mention that wow factor. A water garden is where the water feature is the main focus of the design.

Woodland gardens

With woodland plantings, trees and underplanting, with this style you could go the whole hog or just have a woodland corner.

Gardens for the elderly and disabled

Many gardens are sadly inaccessible for the elderly and disabled. Many people who love their garden can no longer enjoy it the way they used to. So we put thought into our designs to make your garden enjoyable and accessible no matter what your disability or age, with features such as wider paths, ramps, raised beds, sensory features and plantings to name just a few. What ever your needs, we endeavour to provide a solution without skimping on the design.
