Landscape Design Services We Offer

Designing and building a new garden space is no different to renovating, extending or building a house. Working with you at your London home, we will take you all the way through the current conditions of your garden space and your brief, into the phases of conceptualisation, build planning and implementation.

1. Design Process

Our design process begins with a survey - either an in-house overview survey or a more detailed third-party topographical survey. We take this opportunity to fully assess and inventory your garden spaces and take ground and drone photos.

With all the data in hand, the conceptual work begins - this is where we undertake 70% of the design workload - building in all your features and ideas before we present our initial designs at the first review meeting. 

From this stage forward, we’ll work collaboratively to revise and iterate the design towards the final master plan (in both 2D and 3D).

2. Planning

Once you approve the design, we start creating the technical documents needed for the build. 

These documents cover the hard and soft landscaping details, features, construction detailing, quantities, contract administration, sampling, budget and VAT, management, safety, access and waste.

3. Build

The build begins with scheduling, contract documentation and site commencement. We offer varying levels of support to our London clients, including contract administration, milestone visits and project management. 

We are keen to give our clients as much control over the build as they wish. Alternatively, we can handle all the decision-making, subcontractor payments and site management.

Client Testimonials

I would highly recommend Emerging Landscape. Anthony is a joy to work with and his service is very good value for money. The initial briefing session was insightful & thorough and we were presented with draft plans and renders to stimulate our thoughts and help us decide on our options. We found Anthony very engaging and easy to communicate with. His initial visit to our site was great. It gave us good opportunity to discuss options that suit the way we want to use our garden and to help us decide on the particular details that are important to us.

Anthony will challenge our thoughts in a positive way to provoke debate on the various ideas in order to reach a favourable outcome, as options can be overwhelming at times.

The 2D & 3D renders are high quality and have really helped my wife with visualising our scheme.

The overall experience was great and we would not hesitate recommending Emerging Landscape, you will not be disappointed.

Working with Anthony was a pleasure from start to finish; Anthony's background in project managing means that he is entirely efficient and reliable, and sticks to deadlines and budgets. 

Most importantly, he has a passion and flair for creating beautiful outdoor spaces; he listened to us and created a design that is stunning and has exceeded all our expectations. It will transform the way we use our garden with our family and friends for many years to come. We wholeheartedly recommend Emerging Landscape Design.

We are planning an extension to our property which will require the garden to be redesigned and so decided to use Anthony to help us with that. Anthony spent time with us both talking through what we want and need from our garden. It was really helpful to do this as it encouraged us to step back and think about it in a way that we would not have done on our own. Anthony was easy to talk to and work with and we felt he really listened to us. Following a detailed survey, Anthony presented us with a concept drawing for discussion. 

We spent over an hour with him talking it through and understanding the design which was thorough and well thought through, incorporating our needs/ desires for the garden. We were really pleased with what Anthony designed for us, but there were areas we challenged and we really appreciated Anthony's collaborative and open minded approach in talking these through as opposed to being completely wedded to what he has designed. 

It really felt like a two way approach. We would happily recommend Anthony's skill and services.
