Concept Design

Innovative design service introduced at Grand Designs specifically for clients who maybe do not want a full garden design.

The idea of concept design is to achieve a garden layout in one visit; we will survey, design and produce a detailed pencilled plan with notes to help implement the build.

Our concept design service was introduced because travelling around the country producing the grand designs show gardens we were getting clients who lived hours away from us wanting us to design their garden for them.  This service is best suited for architects, developers, self builders, DIY enthusiasts who mainly know what they want but are not sure the best way to pull it together.  

Using Google Earth, a selection of photos of the garden together with any plans you or your architect have had produced for the property, we can have an initial conversation, send you a plan via email to give you an idea of what we will be producing for you and then agree a fixed price.   

Armed with drawing board and pencils we will travel to all areas of the country, take any measurements needed from your garden to produce a simple survey.  We will then work together and create your unique garden design. Once your design has been agreed at this meeting, we will take your plan back to the office to complete.  We will post 2 copies of your hand drawn pencilled plan, fully annotated and ready for implementation by you, your builder or your chosen landscaper. 

The benefit to you is that most gardens designed using this process would make us unbelievably competitive against your local professional garden designers, allowing you to benefit from our design experience even if you’re living a distance from us.  

Feel free to call us to discuss how we can help you with your outdoor space. 


This year we will be launching a unique online garden design tutorial package at a fraction of the cost of any design fee.  We have created videos showing you how to survey your garden and how to use the simple basic principles of garden design. Together, we will design your very own outdoor living space which will lead you ... up your own garden path!
