Garden designers generally design a garden and then landscape them. But not only that they will offer services like planting schemes and garden consultancy for future changes to a garden.
As well as working on domestic gardens garden designers will also work on commercial projects. Garden design for restaurants, business developers and schools can be very exciting with larger budgets and often larger areas to work with.
Each garden design that we provide at Gardens of Distinction will be tailored to your specific needs.
Our garden designers solihull design for any size and style, whether it’s a suburban garden, family garden, or vast rural estate garden, to help you make the most of your outside space.

The Garden design process
Each Garden designer have their own way to work but in general they will follow similar steps to these :
Stage 1 – Initial Consultation
Talk about all of your ambitions and dreams for the perfect garden here.
Stage 2 – Design Site Survey
This depends on the extent and complexity of the changes.
Outline Design in Depth
A completely labelled detailed outline design outlining exactly how your garden will look will be delivered.
The designs created here will be used by the landscaper to build design elements such as pergolas, retaining walls, and water features.
Stage 3 – Planting layout
Every plan will centre on creating stunning planting combinations that take into account the forms, colours, and textures that they will produce. I will then create a plan detailing the plant layout as well as a nursery schedule.
Stage 4 – Garden Construction
Work scope and specifications
This set of instructions will aid landscapers in the construction of your garden and will allow the customer to understand the schedule. All of the materials and procedures for building your garden will be detailed.
Other landscaping services
Many Garden designers Solihull will offer other landscaping services. This will involve soft landscaping and hard landscaping to create the garden of your dreams.
However we at Gardens of Distinction also offer services that will maintain the garden to a high level.
YEAR ROUND MAINTENANCE
Throughout the year, we have a schedule of routine maintenance chores.
SEASONAL TIDY UP
Seasonal visits may involve border digging, rose and wisteria pruning, shrub trimming, herbaceous pruning, leaf cleaning, and formative pruning.
We provide a variety of services such as grass cutting, moss and weed control, fertilisation, aeration, scarifying, top dressing, and seeding.
CUTTING HEDGES AND TOPIARY
All sorts of hedges were cut, including formal yew and buxus sempervirens pruning. On a dry day, all buxus sempervirens are hand clipped or machine cut (depending on size) and completed with hand shears. Hand shears are sterile and sharpened after each use to avoid illness cross contamination.
DIGGING & MULCHING IN SPRING & WINTER
Clean up the border in preparation for Spring, which may or may not be mulched. We can provide high-quality compost or you can bring your own. Rates vary depending on the size of the garden.
Full maintenance package and formative pruning undertaken.

Fruit trees, hedera helix (common ivy), and other plants that have been trained and pruned into espalier, cordon, fan, and other designs.
