The design of your garden is fundamentally the most important part in the process in creating your new outside living space.
A garden requires a balance of hard and soft landscaping to create harmony with the surrounding environment. As we are all aware, the environment is an important issue and needs to be dealt with seriously. Living Landscapes tries to ensure that all gardens created are ecologically friendly and kind to the natural world.
With over 26 years experience in designing and constructing gardens; from contemporary to period, from courtyards to country gardens, Living Landscapes will help you visualize your dream from conception through to completion.
Living Landscapes also construct gardens for other high profile designers and also build gardens that do not require a design.

Wealden Landscape Designs - Garden Design

As a leading Kent based landscape garden designer we take great pride in the design, creation and maintenance of wonderful outdoor living spaces across Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London. Our garden design team appreciate that for many customers the garden has to fulfil a variety of needs. So like any good landscape garden designer, we know the garden needs to provide a haven of peace, relaxation and enjoyment whilst on occasion serving as a place for entertainment, outdoor dining and fun. It’s with a balance of these aims in mind that our friendly and knowledgeable garden design team will liaise closely with you to help crystallise your dreams and ideas. Our garden designers will then design a final garden layout that will be both practical and pleasing to the eye and that will provide you pleasure for many years to come.

By choosing to work with our garden design team you will also avoid the many pitfalls we come across routinely. Too often we are called in to address deficiencies in gardens designed by a “professional garden designer!”  Sometimes these gardens maybe great aesthetically but next to useless practically. Was thought ever given to construction methods, drainage needs, access, waste removal, etc? The last thing you want is rainwater draining towards your house. Obviously we’re not saying all garden designers are poor because they’re not but we offer the necessary experience to combine great design with professional workmanship as well.

So how do we get there?

Gathering Ideas

In the initial stage of garden design we offer a free one hour consultation with an experienced designer. During this time we distil your thoughts and ideas and marry them with our experience to effectively generate a requirements specification. From this we will create an outline design proposal for your consideration and a price estimate to complete the design and construction work. (Alternatively if you are simply looking for a design you may wish to take advantage of our GARDEN PLANS SERVICE. Click on our garden plans service to see some examples of plans and pricing.)

Landscape Design

Once you are happy with the outline proposal and we have your written instruction we will develop the landscaping design concept into detailed visuals and plans which we present to you for your final approval.

Planting Design

The next stage is to create the planting plan. Taking into account colour and fragrance, we carefully match plants and trees that support the design aesthetically yet are also suited to your soil type. If necessary we can tweak the soil balance to suit at a later stage.

Garden Construction

With your landscape design and planting plan finalised it’s time to begin the hard graft! We carefully project manage the construction process right through from excavation to mood lighting. You can now rest easy as our experienced construction managers will ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget.

Garden Maintenance

With your garden now complete we can tailor an ongoing maintenance programme to ensure your garden remains in tip top condition for you to enjoy for many years to come.
