THERE are many good reasons to employ a garden designer — whether you want to create a completely new garden or simply make improvements in an otherwise attractive garden.
Garden designers are trained to understand how to use design principles to create gardens that work and are knowledgeable about the best materials available to create beautifully hard landscaped areas and how to use those materials effectively.
They will have extensive plant knowledge to ensure planting not only appeals to the eye but is suitable for the conditions within your garden.
The role of a garden designer is similar to that of an architect but relating to the outside space.
When building a house or extension you would employ the expertise of an architect to design it and not pass the project to the building contractor without having detailed plans drawn up.
Garden designers can also help clients by recommending contractors for the size and type of project being undertaken.
Clients sometimes simply want a garden design plan to implement themselves or tackle in stages when funds allow.
A garden may only require new planting schemes to improve it. The designer will draw up new planting plans, source the plants and arrange planting for you.
If you require a full garden design or planting ideas and plans, contact Janet Myall at Hortus Garden Design on (01491) 221123.
