There are many different styles of garden to choose from, although in reality most gardens are made up of a variety of different styles and themes, drawing inspiration and ideas from a wide spectrum. There are many important factors to consider when designing an outdoor space, which are all considered in the garden design phase. However, first and foremost is to decide on your favourite style/s, plants, colours and overall feel of the garden. Below are a few possibilities to consider when getting started…
The Mediterranean Garden style, one of my own personal favourites, is now more popular than ever and for good reason. Classically elegant and easy to maintain, this style of garden works in all manner of homes.
Especially effective in Norfolk and Suffolk coastal locations, I am always extremely interested in designing and installing Mediterranean gardens.
This delightful garden style has been used in English gardens for hundreds of years. An enthusiastic proponent of the English Cottage Garden, I enjoy the wonderful colour and informal beauty of this timeless garden style.
My own garden is heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and I take great pleasure in designing other people’s gardens in a similar style.
Every garden needs a water feature, indeed this is one of the few features common in gardens throughout the world. From informal, natural looking ponds lined with rocks or logs, to formal water features situated in the centre of a courtyard, a pond or pool is a fantastic addition to any garden.
If you require a garden with a water feature, I can help you to create this important aspect, including fountains, rills or streams.
Every garden has shady areas, some more than others, however it is important to be able to embrace this situation and transform it into a delightful area in its own right.
Using the concept of ‘right plant, right place’ I can help you to turn that awkward and unloved area into a beautiful and integral part of your garden.
Gardens shouldn’t just work during the summer, its equally important that they provide beauty and delight throughout the late autumn to early spring days when sunlight and temperature levels are lower.
Winter flowering plants are amongst the most fragrant, and can look stunning on a cold winter’s day. Locating such plants at strategic positions in your garden is vitally important.
In a changing world, it’s important that we all do our bit for the environment. Using plants that are recognised as insect and bird friendly by the RHS, I can create gardens that are both beautiful, fragrant and wildlife friendly.
We have had many satisfied Clients over the last few years, here is just a small selection of comments from our happy customers.
Richard provides me with great inspiration and practical ideas and advice when it comes to stocking my new beds with trees, shrubs and perennials. I enjoy talking to Richard and am always very upbeat after one of his visits. Richard’s enthusiasm is infectious and I enjoy working in my own garden so much more now that I have Richard’s support and advice to help guide me.
We hired Richard to provide practical help and advice and to answer all the questions and problems that we have about our garden. Richard is always so helpful and is able to provide high level practical help for those jobs requiring skill and experience like pruning and advising on new plants.
Richard has provided high quality maintenance gardening over the last year or so and has completely transformed my garden. The garden is now looking absolutely marvellous thanks mainly to Richard.
Our garden was in need of some help and Richard’s knowledge and recommendations were gratefully received. The new gate and fencing look super and I’m really looking forward to seeing everything grow. Richard has some great ideas and we will definitely take him up on more of those. Friendly, helpful and honestly priced. Thank you!
Richard has redesigned and installed a Mediterranean style corner that is really beautiful. Richard is extremely knowledgeable, hard working, very reliable and a real genuinely friendly person. We can’t recommend Richard highly enough.
We had a challenging back garden with very damp shade which is poorly drained so we contacted RW Gardens to help out. We are so glad we did as Richard gave us a design which works brilliantly using terraced beds and the right plants for our garden. Thank you Richard, we are very happy with our new garden.
Richard has provided me with excellent advice and helped us greatly to improve our garden. His plant knowledge is wide and his practical skills and ability really high quality. I would be happy to recommend RW Gardens to anyone.
