Landscape Design & Build | Chichester City Centre

This garden design project was an absolute pleasure to complete.

Set in the heart of chichester, with it's incredible views of chichester CATHEDRAL, we were spoilt for choice regarding the POSSIBILITIES of such a sought after location.

Working closely with the owners, we decided to strip the old garden back to a blank canvas and start again. The areas had been left far too long unattended and the garden had become overgrown and unmanageable.

For practicalities, we went with a sweeping pathway which wrapped the bedding areas. A large patio area at both ends of the garden complimented the views and sun traps.

Old style brick edging, bespoke solid oak pergolas and long trellis boundary beams all featured heavily in the design.

Once the planting was finally installed the garden came back to life. This is most certainly one of our showcase garden builds!

Chichester Paving Specialists - What You Need to Know Before Starting a Paving Project!

Paving

Paving is described by Wikipedia as 'a stone or tile structure, the paving, which can serve as a floor or external feature... can be made of flagstones which are used for things like paving gardens.

History

Paving has been used for thousands of years. In fact, some roads and paths built by the Romans with tightly fitting pavers over a base aggregate, two thousand years ago still form the base for modern roads in parts of Europe. If nothing else, this tells us that they're durable!

Today

Whilst we spend a lot of time and money on being creative on the inside of our houses, it won't have the same impact if we neglect the exterior.

The outside of the house is what people see first. The idea that 'first impressions count' is a valid one. If your property has not been maintained and/or improved on the outside via considered landscaping, then it will detract from all your efforts on the inside. People will have that negative first impression which will be hard to overcome.

Likewise, people spend a lot of time in their yards, children are encouraged to get outside and do something physical rather than sitting in front of the PC. You're more likely to enjoy spending time outside or entertaining, if the backyard looks good.

Paved Areas

A big part of any landscaping or improvement is paving, be it a paved driveway, a paved edging to an existing driveway, a paved path, edging along garden beds, or a paved patio.

We have found that a lot of people are finding that maintaining a large lawn area is, not only time consuming, but more difficult with water restrictions. One way of cutting down on their lawn area is to have a paving feature which adds a bit of character to the yard as well as reducing the time and work involved in upkeep.

Are you in need of beautiful garden designing from professionals in Chichester?

If you aren't that handy at designing your own garden, you might be considering garden designing that can be done by professionals. They can incorporate ideas for your landscaping that you might not come up with on your own, but they will ask you plenty of questions to get ideas of the things you like the best, including colours, types of plants, unique landscaping features and even the types of vegetables and herbs you use, when cooking. Beautiful garden designs can blend all kinds of plants and many people are using their home gardens to grow organic foods, with plants that add interest to their landscaping, as well.

If you want a beautiful garden, but do not know where to start, contacting a professional is an idea that can transform your yard, deck, patio and entryway, with proper planning and execution. There are many experts in garden designing that are knowledgeable in unique plants, which offer you a beautiful garden, and little upkeep. When a garden designer is asking about your preferences, this is something they might consider and many flowering perennials are low maintenance and will put beautiful colour, flowers, fruits or vegetables in your garden every year.

A professional garden designer will listen carefully to your wishes before making any detailed proposals; time spent discussing practical needs and your likes and dislikes will help achieve a result that both you and the designer can be excited by. The hoped-for reaction from a client when they see that first presentation plan is "I never imagined anything quite like that, but it's exactly what I want".

Beautifully drawn plans are all very well, but can they be put into practice? A garden designer will have thought through the practical implications of his proposals, including cost. He will be able to provide detailed working drawings and to source materials and plants, giving you a much wider choice than could be found at your local garden centre or builder's merchant. He will be able to find or recommend contractors to carry out the work, with costs and specifications agreed beforehand.

There is no denying that creating a garden can be expensive: expect to spend about the same on a new garden as on a complete new kitchen. Having detailed plans puts you in control and reduces the risk of unforeseen extra costs. A well designed garden makes good use of space that might have been wasted, making a small plot seem bigger and a large uninteresting space more intimate. The benefits of a new garden go on improving over time - planting typically takes three to five years to mature, for a larger garden ten years or more. Research shows that patients who have access to a garden, even if they can only look at it from a hospital bed, recover more quickly than those who do not, confirming what gardeners have known all along: gardens are good for you.
