Week 27 2010: A week in the life of a London Garden Design and Build Company

garden design

  • Went to present 3 gardens last week: The first is a long thin garden design in Stanmore. The garden features something for all the family, including a garden office. The second design was for a small garden in a recent new build property in Harlow. The garden had not been touched since the owners moved in. To read all about it click here. The third garden design, in Surrey  was a refreshing break from the norm for Earth Designs in the sense it was a lovely cottage.
  • We have already been given the go ahead for the Stanmore garden and are waiting to hear about the other two.
  •  Went to draw a garden design for a client in Hackney who wants to self build as he is on a small budget.
  • Won a design for a garden in Harlesden. The site has quite a steep gradient which needs addressing. The client has commissioned the design on behalf of his elderly mother and so has requested a low maintenance space. Matt is going to do the survey this week.
  • Won the job in Stanmore and work started this week – watch this space for more details.
  • Matt finished jobs in Kennington, Greenwich and also in Holloway, which included the installation of a hot tub.
  • Received some images from a client whose garden in Leyton we built in our first year of business. It’s always lovely to see how a garden grows and develops and the pleasure it brings a client, even in the thick snow that we had this winter.
  • The garden we designed in Hawkwell in Essex continues to develop. The clients are self-building and they keep us up to date with the odd photo.
  • Went to draw a garden design sketch in Bromley for a voucher client
