Linsey Evans Garden Design


Having a professionally designed garden is an investment in your property. Employing an experienced garden designer ensures you will get the garden you want and need. Garden design plans help you to visualise your new garden. Garden design plans are given to landscape contractors so they know what they are being asked to build and therefore how much to quote for carrying out the work. Having garden design plans prepared is the only way to ensure that you get exactly what you are paying for when employing landscape contractors.

A great deal of time, thought and creativity goes into creating a garden design and then translating the solution into plans that can be used by landscape contractors to construct the garden. The garden design process is set out in detail under on this page.

It is extremely hard to provide fixed costs for designing a garden as fees are based on how long the practical and creative elements of the design process take. The garden design process is not simply about preparing plans it also involves thinking about how to solve specific issues relating to each site such as level changes (slopes), and awkward-shaped sites. The garden design process also involves coming up with an aesthetically pleasing and unique solution to each client�s brief. The value added by a designer is more than simply practical advice, it is about giving the garden balance, symmetry and making it a wonderful place to relax and spend time with friends and family.
