Online garden design: make your dream garden a reality

Who is our online garden design service for?

Our online garden design service is for anybody wanting to transform their landscape into a dream space from the comfort of their own home. Whether you don’t have the time to attend meetings with somebody locally or have them visit your home, we are available to work around your schedule and create a visual 3D landscape plan based on your style and needs.

How it works

To start, you can simply choose from one of our design plans and fill in the quick and easy form to begin the process. We also believe that just because we are designing your landscape remotely, you shouldn’t lose the personal touch, therefore we can arrange a Zoom call to run through your requirements and understand what it is you want to achieve.

The climate, ground and surroundings can impact what is achievable, so we will ask you to provide your address and postcode to help us better understand the location and what materials are available locally. If required, we can also consult a trusted local expert to undertake a site survey (additional costs may apply).

In addition, we will require measurements for the outdoor space you’re looking to transform. You should include as much detail as possible including any banks and elevations in the terrain, plus all of the existing features you want to remain, such as trees. For more information see our helpful guide on how to measure up your garden.


Next, we will ask you to send us detailed photos of your garden, including the surroundings and the house. This will help us to advise on the appropriate garden design style to supplement the existing structures and colours.
After we have received all of the information we require, we will work closely with you throughout the design process until you are completely satisfied with the final designs.

Planting plan only

The planting plan is for you if you already have borders or flower beds in situ, but don’t know what plants to choose. The planting plan includes:

The traditional style dates back to the Victorian period, which includes strong geometric shapes created around central areas.


The architectural effect is provided by the appearance of neatly trimmed hedges and topiaries used as a focal point.  Plants are used as sculptures, decorative paths and paving are commonly used together with reflective pools or fountains. Patios attached to the house can be edged using balustrades and decorative urns or pots on plinths to decorate the patios and the paths.


We recommend that this style be used in traditional Victorian properties and chateaux.

As opposed to formal garden symmetry, the informal style does not have to be symmetrical.

The geometrical shapes are replaced with a softer look of irregularly shaped borders and curved paths consisting of natural materials.


Borders are usually filled with various plants of different colours, shapes and textures to provide the desired contrasts. They can be planted in close proximity to create a full appearance or in larger proximity to create a see-through planting scheme. Large or small lawns are often featured to create balance.


Natural stone, brick or wood is the most common material used for paving or walling.

The layout of cottage gardens usually includes geometric shapes of squares and rectangles, often reminding us of a vegetable garden or an allotment.


These sections are mostly planted with herbaceous perennials and annual colourful plants positioned in close proximity to each other. This abundance of planting essentially leads to the disappearance of the strong lines of the beds.


Central paths and patios can be created from natural stone, brick or gravel (plants in stone or terracotta pots). Hedges can be used to provide a natural windbreaker and arches create focal points as a walkway.

To understand the Mediterranean style garden, first, we need to think of its dry nature. All the plants and vegetation included should have a drought-tolerant look and will be silver, grey or blue in foliage colour. If hedges are included, they should be neatly trimmed and bay tree topiary can be used as the focal point. Slender Italian cypress provides height and can create alleyways when planted alongside paths and steps.


Limestone gravel is widely used as a mulch and often decorates an entire outdoor space. Large rocks or borders can be dotted within for a better impact. Mosaic tiles or slabbing is used on seating areas and patios and the walls are whitewashed.


Garden structures such as pergolas underplanted with ornamental vines provide a hideaway from direct sunlight.

Modern or architectural garden styles include strong geometrical shapes and clean lines. Horizontal, vertical, modern, and smooth polished materials are favoured.


Seating areas and patios can be constructed using ceramic style slabbing of larger sizes to limit joining and pointing or composite and cedar wood-style decking. Water features and reflective pools include polished chrome or stainless steel.


Fine lawns or artificial grass if used are usually included in minimally sized plants often planted in rectangular beds, raised beds or modern pots these are not grown for the flower display or scent, but for their shapes. The planting scheme is very simple and often substituted by neatly shaped hedges.

Japanese zen gardens are very well balanced, and the elements include colourful planting, gravel, lawns and ornaments.


Plants are selected to create spectacular colour combinations all year round and often include topiary in the forms of various cloud trees. Gravelled areas are regularly raked to form ripples, resembling water.


Informality in Japanese gardens can be found in the soft look of larger lawns. Water features are created in the form of irregular shaped ponds and streams and arched bridges are almost always included to cross them. A traditional Japanese lantern is always a must.

Prices will vary and will be depending on property size and its complexity.

How to measure up your garden and what measurement we need

You don’t need to use a ruler, a clearly readable rough sketch will be sufficient. Include all measurement including length and width. Include main window (e.g., living room window) and/or French doors and their distance from the corner or the house. That way, in the final presentation, we will be able to include the image of your garden from the house.

Please include measurements of
boundaries from the house and all measurements of boundary lines (see the diagram below). Be as accurate as possible for us to create a plant true to scale. You can also use a metric or imperial system; we can work with both.

Mark the items your wish to retain on your drawing. These can include existing trees or mature plants, ponds, focal points etc.

Please include:

  • An arrow pointing to north
  • Include an arrow (or mark) pointing to views you wish to retain or hide.
  • If you require privacy from your neighbours or roads, mark their locations on your drawing

 …such as slopes or banks you can either create a new drawing or
include them in the current diagram providing it can be clearly readable. Please include their approximate location, measurements and horizontal differences.
