Why choose a specialist landscape garden designer, such as Folium Gardens, over a more general design and build landscaping contractor?

  • Royal Horticultural Society qualified.
  • Specialist Design: We specialise in the design of gardens, meaning we can offer a more focused, creative and considered approach to your garden design project.
  • Plant Knowledge: Training and hands-on horticultural experience means we have expert knowledge of plants and growing conditions to create bespoke planting schemes for you.
  • Creative vision: Our expertise lies in developing a cohesive design vision for your outdoor space. We will take time to understand what you want and translate this into a great design, taking aesthetics as well as function into account, and considering factors like site conditions, plant preferences as well as hard-landscaping elements.
  • Cost: A well executed garden design can save you time and money in the long term, and good garden design will add value to your home.
  • Detailed planning: We spend significant time in the planning phase of your project. We create detailed drawings and plans to ensure that the design is exactly what you want before any construction begins.
  • A landscaper may not be enough: A landscaper may share some skills with a garden designer, but the emphasis of their work is very different – construction rather than design. A garden design involves multiple elements which all need to work together.
  • Transparency: Design work is often hidden in the price of construction or landscaping contracts. Our design fees are made clear when we provide you with a detailed estimate.
  • Plant Sourcing. We can source and supply the plants for your design at competitive rates, from our trusted and reputable nursery suppliers.
  • Planting Service. With our expertise in plants you can trust us to use best practice to give your investment in beautiful plants the best chance of thriving.
  • Safe Hands. Combined we have over 50 years experience in design, project management, research and solutions.

If you are considering whether you can afford a garden designer, you may be asking the wrong question. Garden design fees account for a small amount of the total build cost of your new garden. So perhaps the bigger question is; ‘Can I afford to have my garden landscaped’? If you have the funds to build your new garden, then it’s worthwhile designing it properly.

Folium Gardens create bespoke garden designs which suit your needs, with thought given to materials and plants and how you’ll use your new garden. Having your garden designed professionally by us, we hope you will end up with a garden that you will spend many pleasurable hours in over the coming years.
