We interpret your vision to create the perfect outdoor space. We see our job as listening to your wants and needs, offering advice and inspiration and then produce a layout that suits all of your requirements.
The process begins with an initial contact from you either by phone or email. Armed with a few details we will arrange a visit and over a cup of coffee, discuss what you want to achieve from your new garden. We will show you our hand-drawn plans, photos, discuss the best way forward and give you a fixed price to carry out the design work required.
The first appointment will be to arrange a time for the survey where we will take all the measurements needed to design your garden. The next appointment will be for us to discuss our ideas. We will arrive at your home with drawing board and pens and we will design your garden together. Following our ideas meeting we will produce a plan in pencil format showing you the proposed layout of your new garden. We will meet with you again to go through this outline plan and any changes to your design can be made at this meeting. Your final meeting with us will be the presentation of your completed garden design plan which will be inked and fully annotated. It will be the blueprint for your new garden! You will receive 2 copies of the hand drawn inked presentation plan ready for implementation by you, your builder or your chosen landscaper.
In addition to our bespoke design service, there are several additional options that you may wish to take advantage of. These can be found in ‘additional services’ under the Services button above.
This year we will be launching a unique online garden design tutorial package at a fraction of the cost of any design fee. We have created videos showing you how to survey your garden and how to use the simple basic principles of garden design. Together, we will design your very own outdoor living space which will lead you ... up your own garden path!Tell me More
“No more worries about the dogs. Really lovely areas to relax in allowing us to extend our summer well into the autumn!”
“Our wish list was very lengthy and we could not believe that Up The Garden Path were able to give us everything we wanted and more!”
The garden was definitely lacking in interest. The top corner was the perfect place to create a feature that would be viewed from the house.
“I must admit, I thought planting beds in our garden would create a high maintenance garden. I couldn’t have been more wrong”
