South Essex Garden Design Diary

It has been a busy week for our South Essex garden design company:

Matt and the team put the finishing touches to our garden build in Walthamstow this week. All that remains is planting which will take place next week when the plants are available for delivery.

Work is underway for the convent that we are landscaping in Hackney. The team began by cutting down three existing trees and digging the roots out by hand. They then marked out the oval shaped lawns in the paving, ready to cut and remove the paving slabs and sub-base. The sleepers for the raised beds have arrived and will be constructed early next week.

Katrina went to visit a new client who won a competition we were running on our Facebook page. The prize was a full garden design package, which the client was delighted to win as she was keen to finally get the opportunity to make the most of her outdoor space. She had been looking for a landscaper in Leigh on Sea to help improve the view that they currently look on from their family room which they had had built a few years ago. They have two children who should be provided for in the design while making sure that the space is aesthetically pleasing and practical. Katrina drew them a concept sketched based on their needs and it is now in the studio ready to be worked up into a design.

A client in South Woodford has called in the Earth Designs team to look at his space. He and his partner are based in Ireland but travel to the UK regularly and have the property in Woodford as their London base. They are after something attractive and very low maintenance. The design process will be done remotely, so Matt has been round there this week to measure up the space so Katrina can prepare some sketches for the client.

A client whose garden we designed last year has contacted us about getting her planting done. Her husband who is a builder is doing the landscaping himself and we are to go in in a couple of months to finish the garden off for them with the planting. We are just sourcing quotes and awaiting the go ahead.
