PROFESSIONAL GARDEN DESIGNERS
Sustainable Landscapes are garden designers in South West London. We specialise in designing bespoke, elegant and surprisingly affordable gardens for private and commercial properties.
Our team has been designing and building gardens for over 20 years. We have the imagination, experience, skill and expertise to create the perfect garden space for you, your family and your friends to enjoy.
We involve our clients in every step of the design process, we take the time to understand their requirements, tastes and lifestyle. When we design a garden, it is not just about the designer’s preference, rather it is a combination of the designer’s skill and our customer’s vision.
Why Hire a Garden Designer?
Having a professional garden design to work from ensures the finished job achieves the desired result. Without a detailed design for a contractor to follow, there could be all sorts of misunderstandings or unwanted results.
A good garden designer will consider the specifics of the site, the character and type of property, your style preferences and your lifestyle.
All our garden designs begin with a site survey. Our designers will take the time to understand what you want to achieve in your garden. The next step is to create draft concepts for feedback, then once we have your approval, we will agree on a final design.
Our Design Process
Designing a garden is about following guidelines and having the confidence and knowledge to see a project through. It’s about experience, and imagination.
Through the design process the Sustainable Landscapes’ team will consult with you about your personal preferences and requirements and apply them to a tailored creation of your garden.
This means you will have the perfect garden that represents you and complements your home!
Upon receiving your enquiry, one of our designers will visit your garden for a consultation about what you require so we can understand the brief.
We will carry out a detailed garden survey, establishing the site conditions, and what existing structures and hard services are already in your garden.
After your consultation we will send you a proposal outlining our design fees. Should you choose to commission us, we will then initiate the design process.
For the creative process, our designers will draft drawings and planting ideas by working through shapes and material based on your preferences.
The hard work begins on your garden! You will be assigned a dedicated project manager who will ensure the effective delivery of your project.
We can provide on-going aftercare to make sure your garden is kept looking at its best throughout the year and bring it to its full potential.
