Garden Design Services in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire

Design and build service

Covering Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the surrounding areas, Richard will work closely with you from initial consultation about your garden design, through planning to finished construction and planting. His sister company Key Gardencare Ltd can then provide a regular garden maintenance service to ensure that your garden is kept in first class condition.

Garden Design Consultation

Richard will visit you to discuss your needs and requirements for your garden. He will run through a comprehensive check list to cover all your likes and dislikes in order to create a design which is tailor-made for you. This initial consultation will be followed up by a fixed price quotation to prepare a detailed design for your garden. The consultation will last a couple of hours and will be free of charge. Where clients live abroad or at some great distance away then travel expenses will be agreed prior to the appointment.

The Design of your Garden

Once an order has been placed for garden design then a detailed site survey will be carried out. The design will then be taken to an outline stage when Richard will visit you again to discuss the scheme before moving in to the finished plans. This allows you to have a constant involvement in the developement of your garden. A detailed layout plan and planting plan will be drawn up which will form the basis for the costing and subsequent implementation of the scheme.

The Construction of your Garden

After the completion of the design work, Richard will put together an itemised fixed price quote to build your garden. Over the years, Richard has put together a team of first class craftsmen who will carry out all aspects of the construction work including garden lighting and irrigation. Richard will oversee the project making sure that all areas of construction dovetail together, removing that burden from you but keeping you fully informed of progress.

The Planting of your Garden

Richard works closely with a team who source quality plants for him both from this country and Europe. The plants are delivered to the site where Richard will set them out and oversee the planting work to complete the project.
