When we’ve met and discussed in detail what you’d like from your garden the design stage will commence. You will be consulted along the way and once completed you will receive a full garden design package that can include a scale plan, technical drawings, planting plan and 3D renders of what your project will look like upon completion – just to get you really excited! Bespoke packages are available to suit your budget and provide you with exactly what you want
Having studied planting design at various levels including most prominently in a course designed and lectured by world famous designer Piet Oudolf and mentored by the revered plantsman Noel Kingsbury, Keith specialises in producing high quality, sustainable planting designs. Whilst any style can be accommodated Keith’s expertise lies in perennial schemes with an emphasis on plants which will provide long seasons of interest, including throughout winter when elegant, frosty seedheads and stands of foliage can be a highlight of the gardening year. With a particular passion for including bulbs in his designs you can be sure Keith’s planting scheme will give you a garden that will provide you with year-round interest and beauty
Once we’ve met to discuss your garden design Keith will undertake a full survey of your garden. This is to ensure the design is a bespoke and beautiful scheme sympathetic to the topography, situation and context of your property
Keith is an experienced landscaper and will ensure to build all garden elements, including patios, ponds, raised beds, pergolas and more, to the highest standard. By being part of the build Keith can ensure that all the important small ingredients of the design – the pattern of cobble-work, the joins in timber, the specific relationships between materials in the garden – are all completed with the greatest attention to detail
Upon completion of the construction of any hard elements of your garden Keith will deliver your specially selected plants and ensure the ground is prepared for their introduction. Each one will be lovingly placed in line with the planting plan to ensure the very best display for years to come
This is the ideal service for someone who is perhaps further afield but would still love Keith to design their garden. Communication via telephone and email, including photographs and details of your garden, replaces the initial face to face meetings and the design package can be posted or delivered virtually. If you’re interested in a distance design please get in touch
Keith spent a good number of years in charge of the maintenance of several large South Norfolk properties. As the rest of the business has grown, Keith has taken a step back from being physically involved in the maintenance of these properties and has introduced highly skilled gardeners to take over his duties. He remains involved and finds great pleasure in his connection with this work.
Because of the scale of the design and build projects that Llewellyn Landscape & Garden Design undertakes it is now not possible to take on any maintenance work. If you are seeking this kind of work Keith highly recommends looking for personal or local recommendations, and viewing the work of prospective gardeners if at all possible
All gardens are different, as are the requirements of each individual client. With this in mind any costs will depend upon many factors including the size of your garden and what sort of package you would like. All costs are bespoke but all customers are treated with complete equity when it comes to determining these costs.
Design fees tend to sit between £750 and £3000 inc VAT and builds are normally valued at between £175 and £300 per square metre, though a fully costed bespoke quote or costed estimate is always provided particular to each garden design and build.
