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?
