Also catering for clients throughout LoughboroughWe design with your environment and lifestyle in mind. We can use a mixture of paving to create square or circular designs, and smaller edging stones to give a defined finish. If you want to lose the lawn and concentrate on a minimalistic look, we can build a stylish patio. This can then be complimented by raised beds for those who still want to retain a growing area, or coordinated containers for a low maintenance approach to a contemporary garden design. Raised beds can be built to fit any area, and still be a low maintenance option, depending on the planting scheme you choose. Shapely, architectural plants can form part of a highly visual eye-catching pattern. Or low, slow-growing shrubs or herbs can add colour and scent but require little care. Any outdoor space, from suburban and village gardens to city roof terraces and courtyards throughout Loughborough, can be transformed by clever landscape design.
We are all, as a family, totally delighted with our fantastic new garden. It really has added an extra room for us to use. From design decisions, to the build and completion, it was pleasurable to deal with the whole team. I made a great decision in choosing your company.

This really doesn't do this professional company the justice it deserves. However, in just two of the worst weeks we've had in a long time, putting up with hail, heavy rain and water logged around the dedicated, focused and hardworking team transformed our large, elevated, difficult, uninteresting embarrassing garden beyond recognition. They didn't just meet our expectations they surpassed them in every way giving us the gold standard Chelsea garden we had always dreamed of owning. A garden that we can now be extremely proud of, that we can enjoy and now want to share rather than hide. We still can't believe it's ours! With excellent communication and involvement at every stage throughout, I would strongly recommend this company to anyone seriously considering transforming their own garden.

A front garden is usually on view to any passerby and, therefore, makes a statement about your style.
You can choose to make a grand entrance or opt for something a little more subtle. With innovative landscape design, the choices are endless. Small walls, tall walls, steps, slopes or paths can be constructed to suit your space.
Boundary walls or fences can be replaced, extended or demolished altogether if you’d prefer an open plan front garden. Front garden landscape design is all about your personal preferences when it comes to accessibility, security and privacy.
Your front garden shouldn’t be viewed as just your property’s public face. It can also be a highly functional area. If gardening is not your thing, perhaps you’d prefer extra space to park cars or bikes? An attractive block paving design can be eye-catching as well as practical. If you feel it looks a little bare, you can always liven it up with colourful containers.
Alternatively, you may need more space for cars, but still want to have a garden. We can always create a combination of the two. Existing driveways can be extended to give you more room to park, whilst raised beds or borders can be added to give you the space to grow your favourite plants.
A front garden is not just about personal style; it’s also about lifestyle.

There’s plenty you can do to make a long, thin garden both interesting and functional.
Dividing the garden with trellising is a good way to detract from its narrowness. Colourful climbers can be used to screen each section from view. Clematis or wisteria will weave their way up trelliswork and provide plenty of flowers, while good old-fashioned ivy will quickly grow to obscure your line of vision.
Once split into sections, you’re no longer able to see where the garden ends. This approach makes a narrow garden much more enticing. By splitting the garden up, you need to walk passed each partition in order to discover what’s ahead.
When you haven’t got the room to go outwards, it’s a good idea to go upwards. As well as trellising; pergolas and archways give extra height and have a charming, classic appeal. Raised beds also provide extra dimensions. A varied planting scheme, with low plants in some beds and strikingly tall ones in others, gives plenty of visual interest.
If you introduce a pathway, avoid straight lines. Instead opt for a curved path that leads from side to side. This way you will enjoy all the features each area has to offer.

The trick to transforming patios and courtyards is to make efficient use of both horizontal and vertical space.
Start at the bottom and work your way up. Take a look at the ground. Is the paving broken and discoloured? New paving stones will make an instant difference. The material and design of your paving can set the tone for the rest of your plan.
Natural riven stone in soft shades gives you a backdrop that will work with many different themes. Iron tables and chairs can be added to create an Italian bistro-style seating area or colourful flowers and herbs in terracotta pots will give a Mediterranean feel.
If you want to use your garden to entertain, brick built benches or barbeques can be inset into the scheme of your patio or courtyard. Or a water feature or mosaic design incorporated into your surrounding walls.
For those who want to utilise their outdoor area for growing plants, raised beds can be built to fit any shape, using timber or stone. If you prefer to stick to container planting, a feature wall can be constructed, which will house rows of various sized pots. Make the most of vertical space by training plants in containers or raised beds up trellis work.
Whether you’re into relaxing, socialising, gardening, or all three, you’ll be amazed at how much you can pack into a courtyard or patio area.

You’ll be surprised how much you can do with a small garden.
Decking and raised beds can be built to suit any shape – from awkward angles to tight corners. Fencing and trellising can be cut and fitted to size, while walls can be built (or knocked down) to suit your space.
It’s all about intelligent landscape design. Any garden can be transformed with a plan that makes the most of all it has to offer. In a small garden, innovative block paving can be used to create the illusion of extra space. Or decking can be shaped to make the most of every available surface, however uneven.
Raised beds are ideal for smaller spaces. They can be made to suit any height, depth or width, and they provide a controlled growing environment. Enhance a patio or seating area by the inclusion of one or two raised beds.
The planting scheme you choose for your beds will give your outdoor space an individual style. Repeating patterns of subtle shades of lilac, pink and blue provide a soothing atmosphere. By contrast, hot reds, pinks and purples offer a vibrant and lively backdrop in which to entertain.
The smallest urban garden or city terrace can be transformed by thoughtful garden design. From low maintenance to grow your own, we can turn your little space into your dream garden.

Many gardeners concerned at the ecological damage we’re doing to our natural landscape have started to use only natural resources to maintain their gardens.
It’s all about using renewable energy. Gardeners are now avoiding using peat, which is made up of decomposed plant remains. Its qualities make it an ideal substance for plant growing. However, it takes a long time to form, and we’re using it faster than it can be replenished. Peatlands play an important part in the biodiversity of our environment.
That’s why gardeners are looking for alternatives. They’re not just changing the products they use to help plants grow; they’re also looking at the materials they use in the design and build of their gardens. Sustainable garden design materials such as biodegradable products, recycled plastics, ethically sourced paving and woods all help to preserve our planet.
Gardeners are also avoiding chemicals and pesticides, which can have a detrimental impact on wildlife. Instead, eco-friendly gardeners are making their outdoor space a haven for birds, bees and butterflies.
Ponds and bogs make an appealing feature in any garden, and they’re also great for attracting a variety of wildlife. A beautifully designed pond can become the centrepiece of an environmentally-friendly garden. And the careful use of water butts can be used to harness rain and manage watering efficiently and without waste.
The purpose of a sustainable garden is to give more than it takes.
The service provided was very professional and we were pleased with the finished design of our garden. Our muddy swamp of a garden has been transformed and the end result is a fantastic sustainable design. We’re really pleased with the team’s hard work and professionalism. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend you

If your garden is an unmanageable slope that offers little opportunity for growing the plants you love, or even sitting out in a deckchair – have you thought about turning it into a terraced garden?
Instead of one long sloping area, why not divide the garden into multiple levels. Terraced gardens have a style all of their own. Each flat level can be used for something different or you can make them all the same. Either way, you create a garden that’s unique to you.
A terrace becomes an outdoor space that’s now completely functional as you have a flat surface on which to work. It can be transformed into anything from a Mediterranean-style seating area to a fruit and vegetable plot.
The terrain and soil of your garden will, of course, dictate the species of plants likely to flourish in your environment. This can be overcome by the addition of specially built raised beds that can be constructed to the shape and size of your terrace.
Different types of grasses look great on multi-level terraces as they provide a contrast between each step. They’re also tolerant of poor ground and will grow in a variety of soils, from chalk to clay. Containers are also a good option for terraces as they’re mobile and can be used to great effect to create contrasting styles on multi-levels.
Terraces are an ideal solution to the problem of impractical sloped gardens. They can turn an underused outdoor space into a uniquely stylish and highly functional, enjoyable garden.

Water features can range from majestic waterfalls to simple pumps. They can be stand alone ornaments or part of a larger aquatic environment such as a pond.
Nowadays, the choice of water feature is endless, from stainless steel sheets through to glass orbs. The ornamentation you choose very much depends on the location of your water feature, which can also be enhanced by lights and sound effects.
Simple granite or sandstone water features are a popular choice for patios and other seating areas. A water feature can be constructed from the same style of stone used for your paving and becomes a built-in part of the décor.
Water features are also an excellent way of adding oxygen to ponds. The movement of a constant stream aerates standing water. If you keep fish, it’s essential to oxygenate water in order to keep them healthy. Oxygen also keeps algae growth at bay.
A three-tier fountain works well in an ornamental pond. Alternatively, something more natural and rustic such as a gentle stone waterfall is ideal for wildlife ponds. The flow of water will attract birds and other wildlife.
Even the smallest of gardens can house a water feature as it’s not necessary to find room for standing water. A single pump that constantly recycles the same water means you can still have a fountain, aquatic ornament or pebble pool of your choice.
