Beautiful Garden Transformations

Our 3-Step Garden Design Process Explained

Lush Garden Design offers a full design service to homeowners looking to improve their outside space. As well as garden design, we also undertake project management, planting schemes and planting out services. Since 2007 we have designed and overseen the installation of well over 300 residential gardens – putting the homeowner’s needs at the heart of their new garden.

Our garden design process

The journey begins with an initial consultation. We’ll visit to view your site and complete a detailed questionnaire which allows us to create a written brief.

Once we have your brief and a site survey, we explore creative ideas to create concept designs. These are accompanied by mood boards showing our suggestions for plants, materials and accessories, such as furniture, lighting or sculpture. To help you visualise your new garden, we provide a complete set of 3D visuals of the proposals.

Once the concept sketches are approved, we create construction detail plans. These specify the design in depth – with exact dimensions and specifications for items such as water features, pergolas, carpentry and paving.

Of course, without the skills of a team of professional landscapers, your dream garden will remain a dream. We work closely with trusted landscaping companies. When the time comes to build your garden, we will recommend a short list for you.

The final stage is to produce planting plans – an integral part of the overall design of your garden. Once the planting plans are agreed upon, we will source, supply and plant your garden with the highest quality stock.
