Nigel Graham has over twenty years’ experience working in the landscaping industry building and constructing the framework for many clients. Attention to detail has always been important to him often finding certain elements of projects being continually changed until satisfied that the right conclusion was achieved. Designing brings many challenges as today’s leisure time is somewhat restricted by the ever increasing pressures of family and working life. Low maintenance gardens are very often requested these days to leave more time for relaxing and entertaining, however many clients enjoy the therapeutic pastime of pruning and weeding.
Styles and tastes vary immensely with cleaner cut contemporary themes being very evident in the more urban areas with bold planting and pin point lighting to enhance the striking materials often used. More traditional gardens are often thought to be very labour intensive but are still popular for many reasons, withstanding the test of time the natural beauty of Mother Nature will always be a winner. The ease of procuring natural materials from all over the world at reasonable cost has enabled designers to bring an ever increasing variety of texture and colour to our private gardens and now being fashionable to have an up to date garden.
My services range from one off consultations to a full garden design
package including planting plans and maintenence schedules.
After an initial consultation I will work with my client to establish a design based on the aspirations and or requirements for their individual project.
Many differing styles can be implemented either around existing features or starting from scratch with a completely new concept.
NOTE: I would be happy to source you a reputable landscape contractor and will project manage if required. Fees are flexible and depend on the complexity of the design and preferred level of involvement you have requested.
After a concept for your proposed garden has been agreed I will provide detailed scaled drawings to your budget. Amending any details before commencing work and taking your Garden Design through to completion undertaking all hard and soft landscaping.
DESIGN & BUILD
After agreeing a concept for your design I will provide detailed scaled drawings along with one or more mood boards comprising of information on materials, style, and colours. Where possible I will also provide samples of differing materials most of which I will be able to source.
If requested I can provide a design only service but I am very keen to complete all my garden designs taking them from inception through to completion. However if you have your own landscape contractor that you prefer to use I would be pleased to project manage if required.
