Garden Design – Introducing our Team

Our team of talented garden designers take enormous pride in creating amazing outdoor living spaces throughout the south east. Daniele, Laura, James and Anne boast over 60 years of combined experience designing high end quality gardens.

They have created gardens ranging from a build price starting at around ten thousand pounds to some well over a million so have the necessary expertise and experience to take on most challenges.

And whilst few of us are lucky enough to have such deep pockets you can be assured that whatever your budget we promise your garden will be designed with the same care and attention to detail as every single one of our gardens.

We embrace the challenge of space, seeking to combine quality materials with striking planting to create gardens that stimulate the senses all year round.

Garden Design by Evolving Spaces - When you are looking for that something extra special

Garden Design – Our Approach

Before our initial consultation we like to get to understand a little bit about your aspirations over the phone. This helps to ensure we match who we feel is our best designer for your needs so that we both get the most out of our meeting.

We like to understand whether you are simply looking to evolve your current design or whether you are looking for a totally new concept. Either way we will send you in advance an information package we hope will help you clarify what it is you would like to get from your garden (see below).

Our garden designers appreciate your garden will need to satisfy a variety of needs. Maybe a haven for peace and relaxation. Perhaps a place for entertainment, dining and fun or simply a safe area for children to play and develop. Yet one that will always stimulate the senses and give year round interest.

It’s with a balance of these aims in mind our garden design team will help shape your ideas and crystallise them into a detailed garden design. One we hope will provide many years of pleasure to come.

An advantage our garden designers have over many comes from the fact we construct our gardens too. This gives us practical knowledge in that we understand construction techniques and have an eye for things that can get easily overlooked such as potential drainage or maintenance issues.

Garden Design – Going Forward

Once we have agreed a concept our garden designers will be able to give you a feel for the cost to build your garden. If you are happy with this figure then we will propose a fee to design your garden based on your construction budget as our guideline.

The next step is to carry out a detailed survey. When complete we aim to turn around your design in 1-2 weeks depending on complexity and workload.

We supply your master plan drawn up on CAD. Detailed construction drawings and planting plans are usually produced through the construction phase and will be considered as part of the overall build budget thus avoiding unnecessary upfront cost.

Your garden designer will arrange to present your design. Hopefully if we have got the specification and build costs correct then the design should meet your expectations and delight you. However if you would like to amend the design at  this stage then no problem.

With the design now finalised it’s just a matter of planning your build. We will propose a construction window to carry out the work and will ask for a small deposit (typically 5%) at this stage to hold the slot open. Your build will be led by one of our senior project managers who will liaise with you on all aspects whilst your designer will remain on hand to keep a watchful eye from a design perspective. The result – your dream garden!

Our garden design fees start at around £600 for compact gardens with build costs beginning around £10,000.

Garden Design – Modern Design Tools

Whilst all of our designers love to sketch freehand they are all highly skilled in the use of the latest computer aided design tools (CAD). This allows any amendments to be made quickly and easily saving you money.

Our designers are expert in AutoCAD, Vectorworks, SketchUp and Photoshop enabling us to provide 2d design plans and 3d conceptual drawings to help you visualise your garden.
