Garden Design Process

5 steps to the perfect garden

As time is an important factor for a lot of our clients, we will meet with you on-site to ensure we fully understand the space we are designing for and what your requirements and vision are.

A garden should have a purpose, whether this is to create a sanctuary for relaxation, health, and well-being or to cultivate food, they can be a wider extension of your home to provide a place for cooking and entertaining with friends and family. Or simply an area of outstanding beauty to immerse yourself in and enjoy watching it flourish.

Great landscape design looks to create within this natural world, making something memorable and meaningful. Vision is the art of seeing the invisible and turning our environment into an enhancing space. Here at Life Outdoors we take this design ethos and combine it with excellence in construction, creating gardens that deliver and exceed client’s expectations.

With in-house landscaping teams, highly-skilled in all aspects of landscaping, Life Outdoors can offer a completed Garden Design and Landscaping service. Ensuring proffessionalism and quality from consultation to completion.

Site Survey
Concept Design


Our starting point is a healthy discussion on your likes and dislikes, your ambitions and hopes, a vision for us to build on. This sets up a dynamic relationship that grows and evolves during the project. This is always an exciting and invaluable moment in the design process. We charge £80+ VAT for an initial Landscaping Consultation. 

Site Survey

We will then undertake a full site survey as necessary, taking into account aspects, levels, and existing features.

Concept Design

The initial concept stage is all about establishing the overall look of the project, how your proposed garden works; how space flows, and how it sits in relation to the house and its surroundings. Using the latest CAD 3D software and a good old-fashioned drawing board, we will then design and specify schemes tailored to your needs. For all Garden Designs, we charge £400 + VAT. 50% of the Design Service fee will be returned if you choose us to complete your landscaping project.


The next stage is to progress the sketch proposal into the Masterplan. The Masterplan is the backbone of the project, consisting of detailed design and technical drawings that will guide the landscaping team.  There is a charge for this design work, partly refunded if we then proceed with the construction phase of the project.


At this stage, the garden landscaping process can begin, and the garden design becomes a reality. We can provide a full or partial project management service – or act as a professional advisor ensuring a seamless interface between the garden design team and all specialist contractors or consultants to facilitate the seamless delivery of the project on time and to budget. For seamless execution of the design, we recommend using our own in-house landscaping team.
