Garden Design - We offer bespoke 3d garden design

Custom Gardens offer a free quotation service for smaller projects, however it is often preferential to spend more time considering your landscaping requirements, materials and possibilities for the space.

Our design service includes the following:

3. A scale plan showing the house, boundaries and any elements to be retained in the garden
4. A concept board with images of landscaping materials and styles
5. A layout sketch showing the proposed layout and suggested garden features
6. A breakdown of costs for the proposed layout
7. A second meeting to discuss the proposal and walk though the layout in the garden
8. Parts 4,5 and 6 can then be repeated if you wish to make any alterations
9. A final design plan with all specifications for construction and a detailed quote for the project

Water Features - Adding movement and gentle sound

Water features can vary from natural looking ponds to modern sculpture, some clients want them for the wild life others to make an achietectural statement. They can create interesting focal points and are very effective with lighting.

Lighting - Highlight the beauty of your garden at night.

Lighting can be overlooked by many landscapers and garden designers. Despite being a relatively small feature, lighting can have a large impact on a garden by creating particular focal points and altering the entire ambience of the area.

The units can be situated subtly in planting, brick work or paving. Many lighting units can be used with an LED light source which means the units can run on low voltage, using little power. All work is carried out by fully qualified electricians and supplied with an NICEIC Certificate.

Timber Construction - Add another dimension to your garden.

We offer a wide-range of landscaping timber construction including fencing and trellising, decking, pergolas, sleeper walls and raised beds.

Pergolas can be used in various ways in the garden, to provide shade or privacy, to create a focal point and to support climbing plants which can cover the structure in colour.

We use only the best quality materials, the hardwood sleepers are environmentally friendly (from sustainable forests), and all softwoods are pressure treated to increase longevity.

Decking - Decking can be an attractive and cost effective solution.

Timber decking can be used to extend your living areas into the garden with a contuation of the wooded flooring. It is also a cost effective alternative to sandstone paving or reconstituted stone. Decking does not just come in softwood, there are also hardwoods available and products made from recycled materials which come in many different colours.

Stonework - Detailed stonework can create a luxurious look.

Our landscapers have extensive experience working with natural stone for both paving and walling.

We find Indian sandstone to be a very popular material. It is available in many different colours and shades, some of which can be seen in our gallery.

The aesthetics and value of this product always works well in the garden, with natural variation in colour and texture adding to its exceptional quality.

Our patio designs can include intricate patterns with decorative edging, lighting and irrigation.

Driveways - Driveways can set the approach to your home beautifully.

All driveways are built to a high specification with quality surfacing products, foundations and drainage.

Our professional landscapers can use a variety of quality materials for surfacing; tarmac drives, block paving, natural stone, cobbled paving and gravel driveways are available in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

We provide a wide variety of garden lighting to enhance structures or plants and for security.
