Thinking about redesigning your garden? The team at David Taylor Landscapes and Frederic Whyte Garden Design in Suffolk talk us through what you need to consider before you start
Suffolk homes possess gardens of varying shapes and sizes. Whether you are looking for a complete redesign of your outdoor space or enhancing a particular area, employing a garden designer and landscaper can bring your vision to life. Landscaping is a great way to reinvent your garden: creating a beautiful space and designing a layout that suits your needs.
What do I need to consider before embarking on a garden design project?
Budget is one of the most important things to consider before you start the redesign and landscaping of your garden. You need to be certain of how much you're willing to spend before planning takes place. Be realistic about what you can afford with your landscape designer from the start to ensure that the project does not exceed your budget.
You need to decide how you would like to use your garden. Do you want something that's easy to maintain? Is it a garden to enjoy visually, one to entertain friends and family or one for children to enjoy? These are things to factor in when your landscape designer considers borders, furnishings and paving, and aspects of your garden. It is important to let your designer know the amount of time you would like to spend maintaining your garden.
