Garden Layout

Planning the layout of your garden is essential to getting the look that you want. The right garden layout makes good use of every inch of your garden, and will flow through nicely. It’s important that your garden is both practical and attractive, so working out the right layout is one of the first things that the designers at Floral & Hardy will do. We can look at your existing garden space, listen to your ideas, and draw up a layout of how we think the space could best be used.

It’s important for our designers to discuss how you want to use your garden and what you want to achieve before they come up with a plan. For example, you might want a patio area in the sunniest spot of the garden, or an outdoor dining area that’s somewhere shaded and secluded. This will form a basis for the layout, and we can then create pathways and paving to make the elements flow together.

If you are looking for garden layout ideas, then looking at some gardens in the style you want to achieve will give you some inspiration. For example, if you want a contemporary garden, then you’ll want the garden layout design to be quite simple, perhaps with a few distinct zones for things like relaxing or play. Once you have some inspiration for the kind of look you want, Floral & Hardy can see how this style could fit into your existing garden, and start to work on the design.

Drawn plans
Having drawn plans can really help you to visualise what your finished garden will look like. This means you can make any changes before the work begins, and are more likely to be happy with the finished product. We draw up plans for garden layouts that show the position of fencing, patios, flowerbeds, and all other elements to show how they work together, and this is also useful if you need planning permission as it can be used during the application process.

Floral & Hardy have years of experience designing effective garden layouts. Whether you have a small back garden, or an estate of several acres, by drawing up a layout we can ensure the space is used effectively.
