A peek into the Design Process at
Unique Landscapes

With 19-years of continued experience, culminating in plant knowledge and design and construction, we, at Unique Landscapes work collaboratively with our clients listening to their needs, to ensure that the garden design brief is clear and is interpreted correctly in the plan. We are an award winning garden design and construction company who pride themselves on an unrivalled bespoke service, with quality and customer satisfaction being their objective.

The aim of consultation is to cleverly obtain the most from the space in question and being realistic with a budget. It's about the correct selection of materials, it's about leaving the space well balanced with all the existing objects and all the newly imported features blended together. It is about being realistically minded and understanding the idea that the space has to work in a functional and practical sense, yet also thinking aesthetically and allowing the space to show itself off.

Unique Landscapes can also help and consult with other associated services like swimming pools, tennis courts, outdoor furniture and lighting systems. Every client and every brief are all unique, no one project is ever the same.

Continue to the Design Process

Design Process

The initial visit, is where we listen and discuss your individual requirements, view your garden and create the brief. During the visit we will provide practical advice and offer ideas and suggestions that draw on our many years of experience and knowledge of the latest construction techniques in landscaping.

Part of this involves an accurate and complete site survey involving everything from existing buildings, boundary lines, levels, drainage, etc. An A1 sized sketch plan would then be produced to scale, in order to give you, the client, an accurate representation of the initial draft for discussion. This is the point where relevant changes would be included.

Next up: Construction


From the initial design and specification Unique Landscapes can undertake all major earthworks and construction that will give gardens their shape and character: site clearance; driveways; land drainage; ponds and fountains; stone walling; patios; summerhouses; fences and gates. Decorative lighting schemes and irrigation systems can be incorporated in the initial scheme or added later. We can also recommend and supply garden furniture and accessories to complement your outdoor living space.

Landscaping construction work is so very varied with each project being individual to each individual client. Well thought out planning is the basis for a smoothly run site, whether it would be a domestic project or a commercial site. We have the utmost respect for your home, family and neighbours and full consideration for other trades and contractors when working on building sites. They will ensure that the site is left in a safe and tidy state at the end of each working day.

Our skilled staff have turned acres of bare land into green, lush & vibrant oasis for many to sit & enjoy for years to come. Construction would, in many cases, only proceed from a completed design.

And finally: Project Management

Project Management

When it comes to managing the project, we like to keep the process flexible. We always offer our clients the opportunity of project managing all of the hard and soft landscape works from anything form a small space to a large commercial project.

We will manage contractors carrying out landscape works and manage the development process, co-ordinating the input of other agencies, partners, and consultants to ensure effective team working, managing project finances and providing cost and quality control. We think the client's opinions and engagement is an important one if the client sees it fit.
