A little imagination can a long way. This small garden had previously been designed and was adequate for an older couple, but it had almost no entertaining area outside or anywhere for the kids to play. It was exposed to the surrounding houses and had few plants to liven it up. This was overcome as you can see with a trellis screen, new planting and a retaining wall (which also acts as a seat) to make the levels of the garden make sense - and to reduce soil waste from the site.

This eliminates:
  • Endless meetings with different contractors. 
  • Uncertainty about who to use. 
  • Poor quality workmanship and corner cutting. 
  • Substandard materials and landscaping methods. 
  • A mistrust of the costs involved in the various projects. 
  • A plethora of 'extras' that suddenly appear above the original quote. 
  • Hassle..hassle...hassle...
    GardenEye will:
    • Support you through the design and landscaping process 
    • Give you time – to do other things. Projects require a huge amount of knowledge and input 
    • Give you an understanding of the breakdowns on the project and the details of the work that take place 
    • Offer sound independent advice on your project without being beholden to any contractor or craftsmen or to any types of material 
    • Pull together detailed job specs for the garden and get the quotes in for you, based on those alone 
    • Oversee the workmanship, the contractors and the strategy on the project 
    • Manage the costings and the budgeting 
    • Be your eyes on the job, working for you and seeing it through to the end.

Lavender, Rosemary, pleached hornbeam leading to a Prunus hedge and a sundial. It is stunning even in winter because of the fine structure and glorious throughout summer and a wildlife haven.
