Our Design Philosophy
There are five definitive elements that we take into consideration when designing an exterior space:
Element 1 - The architectural style of the building or home.
The design of a garden should emphasize the characteristics of the residence. A perfectly designed landscape should always compliment the architectural style of your home.
Element 2 - Sunlight.
Our second step would be to find out where the sunniest areas in the garden are. This is not only for the benefit of plants but also for people. There’s nothing more magnetic than a spot showered with morning light, and good garden design is all about arranging subtle magnets to draw us outside...
Element 3 - Privacy
It doesn’t matter if your garden is small or large, every garden needs some element of privacy. We are always looking for new ideas and designs to make privacy a design feature in your garden...
Element 4 - Viewpoints
Viewpoints are one of the success factors for a perfectly designed garden. It is very important to create garden viewpoints so that you can pull the garden into your home through a featured window. Viewpoints are wonderful compositions in themselves and yet blend in perfectly into the garden when viewed from outside.
Element 5 - The practical side
Lastly, there is the practical and functional side. It is important to check soil type and quality; to take drainage into consideration; provide for children and animals; consider access and utilities; and to establish entertainment areas.
