RESIDENTIAL GARDEN DESIGN 

Every garden is different, as well as every client has different requirements.

Whether it is a small garden that needs new planting scheme or large multifunctional landscape with bespoke features and hard landscaping elements. A well thought-out design is the key to make all ideas become reality, that will bring the joy of beautiful and practical outdoor space for years to come. 

 

Complexity of a project and the design proposal is based on client’s brief and site assessment. Stages and components of garden design are presented below:

Portfolio of previous work is presentenced as a form of reference and guidance.   

 

  • Site survey and analysis

Measurement of the garden and analysis of all existing elements that will form the base for the constraints and opportunities for the beautiful garden to be. 

  

  • Design concept 

Included are two scalled CAD (line drawings) garden layouts supported by mood boards to present planting style, proposed hard landscaping materials, features and decorative elements.

  • Little extra for that wow effect 

Attention to detail is crucial in garden design.  Every single tiny element of the garden plays important role in the overall coherent and visually harmonious space. From the fabric and colour of the cushions on your outdoor sofa to a grand sculpture that creates a focal point in the garden. 

We call this process garden decoration. Choosing the right pots, furniture or lighting elements and making sure that is either making a grand statement or blends flawlessly within scheme.

Designer eye might come to help with this, as adding those little finishing touches might seem small in overall grandiose scheme of garden build, but it can immensely influence ambience of the space and the way it is received and how influences our senses.

We always thrive to add little extra that creates that wow effect and make a garden feel and look special. Love for bespoke designed features is very often seen through our designs, because we feel every garden should have its own individual character.

K Studio can do it all for you, either source or design bespoke elements.
