Why Plan?

Planning a good landscape design is vital. Here’s why…

Money

Spending money on plants that don’t work in their surroundings or hiring a Cambridge landscape designer before you have a vague idea in place can both be expensive.

Time

You could be wasting valuable time working on a small project when what you really need is an overall plan. A solid plan will bring your landscape together and give the whole project the special feeling you’re looking for.

Frustration

Why don’t your projects turn out like the ones in the magazines or on the TV shows? Probably because they don’t provide you with the specific skills needed to create an overall design for your garden.

Function

A badly functioning lawn can be like sand in your shoes: irritating! Even more so when the family dog tracks mud through the kitchen. Good Cambridge landscape design will solve problems like these.

Beauty

A creative landscape will evoke the senses as the seasons change. Special touches like a structure, a beautiful piece of outdoor art or statue will personalise your space.

Value

It’s a proven fact that good landscaping increases the value of your home. Kerb appeal starts at the kerb!

Entertainment

A well-planned landscape is a delight to entertain in. The ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from your guests as the evening lights come on; the built-in buffet at your outdoor grilling area; the soft glow of the hydrangea blooms in the dusk. Everything you need is completely customisable.

Expand Your Living Space

With some effective planning, you could have an outdoor kitchen and seating area for al fresco dining, a screened gazebo for reading in the shade, or an outdoor swimming pool for exercising or playing with your children. What features are on your list?

Enhance The Indoors

One of the tricks we use when we meet clients is to look out into the garden from their largest house windows – what will you see? A beautiful garden is as much about what it looks like from the inside the house as it is when you are out in the garden.
