Topographical survey


The advantages of Computer Aided Design (CAD) means no more guesswork. Exact measurements and an adaptive approach can create different options quickly without having to go back to the drawing board. 3D illustrations help your new garden come to life.

Each landscaping team is project managed by one of two highly experienced Senior Managers, both of whom have led teams to construct medal-winning gardens at both Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows.

Should elements such as garden lighting, special features or irrigation systems be required, Garden Care will appoint and coordinate highly reputable contractors to carry out work that requires specialist qualifications, ensuring their successful integration into your new garden.

Design is important and extremely valuable as your vision or expectations for your new garden can be interpreted and created by a professional team who understand your needs and align them with your soil, site, aspect, aftercare needs and budget.

Home owners are increasingly aware of the importance and value associated with their outside space and the enjoyment that they bring. Having your garden properly planned and constructed to meet your expectations is the most complete way to get the very best from your garden.
