Rural Gardens is a small family business that has been running successfully for six years. Our emphasis is on providing a professional, personal service to a high standard at competitive rates and to make the transformation of your garden a stress free and enjoyable evolution. The garden design process begins with a free, no obligation visit during which we can assess your needs and you can see whether you would like to use our services. If you do we will discuss in detail your requirements, we will carry out a survey of the garden and produce a plan in line with your wishes. These plans can be amended until you are satisfied with the result. If you would then like us to carry our the hard and soft landscaping we will do so but there is no obligation to use us. We would like to stress that you will be given the costs of each phase of the project in advance and you use only those services that you wish.
If you are not already a knowledgeable or keen gardener we sincerely hope that by the time we have built your garden and planted the beds and borders, your appetite for gardening will be whetted and your interest increased. Our wish is that you not only enjoy the garden but also enjoy watching the plants grow and the garden develop.
Many people believe that the presence of a garden designer means a total garden redesign. If required, this can and will be done (as above) and, indeed, is the majority of our business but we have found that many people have reached a point in their garden development where they know something is not quite right with the overall design, but do not know what. Most gardeners produce good design ideas but possibly not entirely complementary to or in balance with each other. With our help your garden can be transformed relatively simply and cheaply giving it movement, balance and form that previously may have been missing.
Finally, we do not just take your money and wave you goodbye at the end of the project, we encourage you to contact us if you require any gardening advice, whether it be a plant that is not growing well or you need advice on plant care such as pruning. In the latter case we often visit existing customers at suitable times in the year to give them pruning tutorials in their own gardens.
