Whether you have a garden which needs some updating or a bare patch of lawn in need of a total overhaul Wright Gardens can provide the solutions to give you your dream
Louise Wright, the designer and company owner has gardened all her life, learning at an early age from her ‘Gromp’ on crawls and wallks in the garden and countryside of Suffolk and Kew Gardens.
After her BA Hons degree she has completed a two year Garden Design course at Capel Manor Horticultural College.
She set up her garden design business in September 2002 and takes complete personal control of all projects undertaken by the company ensuring the client gets an individual service and peace of mind throughout.
Wright Gardens can provide advice on individual plants, purchase plants on your behalf and be booked for a walkabout in your garden to suggest improvements on layout and planting styles.
The survey provides us with a flat plan of the existing garden; the structure, dimensions, capabilities and restrictions of the site. This process involves taking measurements, levels, drainage, power as well as the atmosphere of the site. Roof gardens need the advice of a structural engineer. We can arrange this.
Price on size of garden. Small £150. Medium/large £275
Wright Gardens starts with a designing briefing session with you. This is your chance to put a personal stamp on your garden. Collect magazine cuttings and photographs to show us. A detailed questionnaire will be sent to you to help you think through all the elements involved in the design including materials, styles, colours, atmospheres and functions that the garden will perform. If you have a budget in mind this is the time to talk it through with the designer. We will be able to advise whether goals are achievable. 5-10% of your property value for the overall project is a starting point.
Wright Gardens then produces a design layout adhering to all your requests. This is a professional document drawn to scale and includes information for the contractor about exact materials enabling them to build the garden to strict requirements. Sometimes more detail is needed in which case construction drawings, lighting, irrigation and water feature plans will be drawn up separately.
If large areas of planting, sourcing of plants and preparation work are required then a separate planting plan is drawn up. This addresses the planting solutions to achieve your overall style and looks at horticultural needs of each plant being considered to suit the site. This usually costs about 80% of the design layout drawing cost.
Wright Gardens can collate hard landscaping, lighting, irrigation and water feature quotations from specialist sources and present them in an easily comparable form for you to budget from.
Once the design is agreed and contractors appointed Wright Gardens provides scheduling, site management, quality control while the build goes ahead. This give you peace of mind that your property is being managed while you are out during the day and that the work will the finished on schedule and within budget. It also provides you with a professional eye to correct any quality control problems.
Hourly rate based on on-site time
Once the structure of the garden has been built the planting can be ordered, delivered and worked in. Soil preparation may be necessary at this stage, and a few days of planting finishes off your dream garden.
