We wanted to restructure our garden and had a vague vision, but no detailed plan. We found Ken by chance and were delighted we did!! We needed help to get the best out of our garden and to give us the confidence to get rid of some established trees which were limiting our options.
Firstly, Ken is a very approachable, down to earth man. He is clearly creative and interested in garden design. He has a very methodological process to ascertain what his clients are actually after. We each had to complete questionnaires to gauge our likes / dislikes and give Ken some insight to our personalities and design styles. We were also encouraged to create some design / mood boards from magazine cut outs etc. Ken then undertook a very detailed survey of the garden topography.
Following further discussions, Ken then took everything away and came back with some detailed first proposals for the garden. Once these had been tweaked to our satisfaction, Ken produced some beautiful coloured and scaled plans for the final design. This really enabled us to visualise the final outcome.
Ken also kept out budget in mind throughout the design process and provided detailed costs for all the components suggested and possible suppliers. Ken also has good knowledge and suggestion for planting schemes.
Our garden is now completed and maturing beautifully. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ken. He has excellent ideas, is hard working, has a transparent fee structure and seeks to delight his clients. We have had loads of compliments on our garden. Thank you Ken!
