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

Garden design by Llewellyn Landscape & Garden Design

Planting design

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

Site survey

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

Hard landscaping

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

Hard landscaping in Norfolk with Llewellyn Landscape & Garden Design

Soft landscaping

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

Garden maintenance

Keith has been in charge of the maintenance of several large South Norfolk properties since the early days of his business.  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.

In terms of new maintenance contracts Keith will be able to put you in touch with someone who can help.  For one off or large-scale horticultural projects Keith may well be able to help you himself: please feel free to get in touch, discuss your requirements and see what’s possible.  Keith has all his own professional equipment, with a particular interest in Japanese hand tools, and his formal horticultural training will ensure your garden is in the very best hands

Project management

Keith is happy to manage a project from start to finish.  This can be a full package which will see Keith manage the project from finding the suppliers or in some cases the third-party landscapers to providing the specification and visiting site to oversee the works through to completion or a more limited package where Keith is available on the phone should any questions need answering.  The level of management at this stage of the project varies from garden to garden and is completely dependent on what you would like – this is something that can be discussed when you meet Keith.  Keith has also acted as agent for any garden-specific planning applications that are necessary as part of your build

Distance designs

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


A note about prices: all gardens are different, as are the requirements of each individual client.  With this in mind the price will depend upon many factors including the size of your garden and what sort of package you would like.  For an absolutely no obligation chat about your ideas and your garden, during which Keith will be able to give more of an idea of a bespoke quote, contact LLGD now
