Landscape Design

The garden is our outdoor living space and should be considered as another room of our home. With this in mind, the garden should reflect the style of the property and cater for the lifestyle of the people who live in it.

Working off a garden design enables clients to view a visual concept of the finished result, and to also accurately budget for the project ahead. Design packages can be tailored to accommodate projects for all garden sizes and budgets.

How the design process works

Castleview conducts a full survey of the garden, taking accurate measurements and levels, as well as any important detailing that needs to be factored into the design such as existing trees, inspection covers, drains, etc.

Our garden design expert will make an appointment for a home visit and take a detailed garden design brief. This will take into account lifestyle, the period and style of the property as well as many other factors such as whether the garden is to be ‘low maintenance’ or perhaps a project for keen gardeners to nurture themselves. This is like a wish-list for the dream garden.

It is always beneficial to have considered the budget for the project. It will influence the design and elements such as the type and quantity of materials used, the final planting scheme and key features within the garden.

Back at base, the brief will be interpreted and translated into a visual concept to create an accurate, fully-scaled artistic impression ready to present and discuss with the client.

In presenting the final design layout to the clients, the designer talks through the details of the plan, including the intricacies of any special constructions, access arrangements etc. With the final layout agreed, the planting scheme can be created. Costs and timescales for delivery of the project are explained and of course, clients have the opportunity to raise any concerns or make minor changes.

Once the design and budget has been approved, the dream can start to become reality and the job is scheduled into our landscape diary.

To keep your dream garden looking good we do have a maintenance service.
