Garden design

The original plan was to simply replace my back fence… 2 years later both front and back garden have been totally transformed. Even my local policeman is so impressed he wanted to know if I’d had Alan Titchmarsh in!! From planning through to execution it has been a pleasure working with the team at the Open Living Company.

Your garden design in safe hands

Our working philosophy

Most of our work comes from personal referral and so your opinion of us is crucial, and our long term relationship with clients is one of things that we believe sets us apart.

We offer a complete garden design service, from initial consultation and the evolution of the garden design through to the final finishing touches.

We can also agree a staged approach to garden design to fit your timescales and your budget. We often work with families who eventually want to do a complete transformation but don’t want to do it all at once, and prefer to do it in stages to help with cashflow or to fit in with events in family life.

The process

We are entirely transparent in the way we work with you. Once we have seen your space and discussed your project (a free consultation), we will send you an email summary of the conversation and our proposed charges for designing your requirements. Attached to that email will be our clearly set out design process documents for you to read at your leisure. Our pricing quote (£60 per hour + VAT, £72 per hour inc VAT) is both fair and realistic – and will save you money in the long run.

To see a summary of our landscape garden design or our garden building design process documents, please contact us on 01403 700736.
