Whether you are looking for advice about how you might improve your garden or you want a fresh new look for the whole for your plot, a garden designer is an essential first step, just like an architect would be if you were thinking of building an extension on your home.
It’s important to make sure that the garden designer you choose is qualified, experienced, insured and registered by an industry body such as the Society of Garden Designers who will make sure that their design skills and business practices are of the highest standard.
Look for a confident and friendly designer who is able to answer all your questions and who has an extensive portfolio of work that you like.
