    We are enthusiastic about landscaping, the outdoors and gardening as a form of therapy.

    We are professionals in garden design in the Telford, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Codsall, Shropshire and Wolverhampton areas of the West Midlands. Specifically small, medium, tricky, or unusual gardens. We love a challenge and using our creative design and problem-solving to make truly incredible spaces for our customers.

    Customers often confuse a small garden with a simple garden design. This is often one of the most challenging gardens to design effectively. Given the fact that you have such limited space; getting the design aspects wrong can completely ruin your garden space, design.

    Enthusiastic, practical, collaborative, and cost-effective garden design, which combined with meticulous attention to detail, informs our diverse portfolio of past projects.

    The Correct garden designers will save you money by:

    • A scaled design of your garden for contractors to quote from.
    • Allowing easier contrast of quotes as they are all from the same blueprint.
    • Design expertise means you can avoid ‘assumption’ in, tools, materials & planting.
    • Removing wasted money on inapposite plants.
    • Saving time in getting to your final design.
    • Creating a vision and clear view of the garden you’re creating.

    Small, medium and tricky gardens can be difficult to design yourself as you may simply become overwhelmed. With what to plant, the number of plants, how big will they grow and exactly how much is too much!

    We love height in a garden as part of our bespoke style, whether this is raised planters or containers. We also like to use a contemporary colour scheme. Whilst our designs usually have a modern look, we quite like bucking the trend and mixing in some more traditional elements. M & P Mckeown Landscapes like to look back as well as look forward when finding inspiration for my Codsall Garden Designs.

    What is garden design?

    Garden Design is a professional skill in which a garden designer, like M & P Mckeown Landscapes, must survey a plot and then craft a design that applies both hard landscaping and planting to create a look that is both functional, practical, and professional based on the client’s scope.

    Careful thought such as soil type, property aspect, topography, hazards, adjacent properties, existing planting, and a multitude of other factors all need to be considered.

    It’s a really tricky concentration, as often a designer is having to analyse what a client wants, ie a look, into a practical design with planting that can give the look they want under the garden conditions they have.

    Creative problem solving is a skill that we as designers all love. It involves considerations that most people would miss or overlook, for example; will that tree lose its leaves in winter and make that pathway slippery?

    Codsall Garden Design Advice

    There’s a lot to consider with a garden redesign, so we have created some garden design tips to assist with garden design Codsall ideas. There are a few considerations when designing a small garden or tricky shaped garden.

    1, Using the space correct

    Often people with smaller gardens try to cram in as much as feasible, pots all over, beds, hanging baskets, small water features to name a few. The problem with a smaller garden is the more you put in it the tinier and more cluttered it can feel.

    Moderation is often the key to a victorious smaller garden. If you want a small, themed garden for example using stone formations, sculptures, gravel will probably completely tower above the design. If there’s just too much to look at, it looks forced and piecemeal. It’s best to stick to a few items and display them accurately. Less means more space.

    2, Effective Colour theme

    Our style with small gardens is to take time choosing a really effective colour theme. A more natural garden design would let you use a mix of different colours and light shades over a larger space.

    However, in a smaller garden, this can emphasise the lack of space as you can only fit maybe one or two of each of these coloured plants in before your garden is congested. It can also make a garden look quite unconnected unless done in a cottage style.

    M & P Mckeown Landscapes Codsall prefer to take say 1-2 colours and contrast them. This not only allows you to group plants based on colour to give unity, but it also creates a real focus in a smaller garden.

    You want to slow down the impact of a smaller garden so it’s not a one-hit-wonder. Using an effective colour theme of a couple of colours makes you focus in on each which in turn slows you down. There is less to distract and interrupt your attention when you use a more limited colour.

    3, Use your resistance

    If your garden is always in the shade, then work with it! There is no point in trying to grow specific types of flowers in a shady garden. As they thrive on the warm sun. The natural world has a way of creating plants for all aspects, lighting, and conditions so our designs always work with this. If your garden has sunlight all day long, then work with it!

    We can provide planting plans that will flourish in your garden conditions. By paying particular attention to the aspect and conditions you can avoid those sad sorry looking plants that are being forced to try and succeed in unpleasant planting conditions!

    4, Flawless focal point

    We usually advise that a focal point is used to draw attention to the best or better part of your garden. What’s the best area of my garden you may ask? This is the area that either get the most daylight, has the nicest view and condition.

    A flawless focal point provides something for you and your guest’s vision to be drawn to. It doesn’t need to be right in the middle of a lawn or a huge sculpture. A focal point can be elusive such as a doorway that gives a hint of something on the other side. It could be a sculpture on a border that makes you want to look further.

    The key is planning and tackling the project as a whole, landscaping first, then planting, rather than building the garden piecemeal, this is where you can see everything on offer at once.

    5, Influence Wildlife and Nature

    With the increase of Urban sprawl and the conversion of many front gardens into block paved driveways and back gardens into slabbed patios, wildlife has a challenge. It’s a  very sad fact that many green front gardens have now been converted into parking as the increase in motor vehicles has soared in the past years.

    M & P Mckeown Landscapes can give you a helping hand to design an environmentally friendly garden whilst incorporating the basics such as a parking space area for the back. Whether it’s using window planters, container planting, low maintenance projects you can have the best of both worlds.

    This both encourages wildlife, reduces the increased flood risk of non-permeable driveways, and makes your property much more appealing to look at!

    Wildlife is an essential part of Codsall Garden Design because not only will it keep garden pests under control, but it also helps environmentally. The reduction in honeybees has already shown an impact on crop production. We must always do our best to reduce our impact on mother nature and an M & P Mckeown Landscapes project always has this at the forefront of its design. I encourage pollen-rich planting for bees and insects providing habitats where we can coexist with current wildlife.
