Garden Designs in Bramhall from Beauscape

With over twenty years on site experience we have the practical knowledge of what works well in certain properties and outdoor spaces, this is central to being able to design effectively and advise a client or potential client. Using a professional landscaping contractor will leave you with a landscape that looks great but it really is the start of a journey that only with skilled maintenance and creative direction over the years will increase in its beauty and therefore enjoyment, rather than looking good for a photo after which the landscape is allowed to take on its own form which is far from the original vision you and the designer had at the inception.

The client’s needs and preferences are primary and understanding these should always should be the first port of call on a first visit, secondary to this for me would be identifying desirable plants and features to retain on site adding integrity and retaining the heart and sole of the garden if it ties in with the overall vision. Modification of features as part of a new garden function can often be very rewarding for example converting a overgrown disused pond into a two tier fire pit was a great example of this and drove a whole design for an area of bespoke paving.

It’s always a pleasure to breath new life into something that has been in or around the property or grounds rather than trying to source features and or materials from reclaim yards and salvage specialists that can often prove costly and look out of place as focal points for enjoyment.

A well designed and thoughtfully maintained garden will look better with time, as a company Beauscape always create designs around you and your home but we always keep one eye on practicality and maintainability. So many spaces in and around Cheshire have simply been poorly designed by so called ‘designers’ that have zero site experience and it really shows.

The usual suspects are poor selection of materials that don’t weather well, areas that are next to impossible to maintain even with standard and non standard maintenance equipment like lawn mowers and trimmers etc, and my favourite which is failure to take into account the drainage of surface rainwater into appropriate gullies, drainage Channels like Aco’s or soak away pits which is unforgivable. It’s common to see one or all of these these issues even in a small garden and it frustrates me to think of the money that has been wasted on work that through poor design has aged really quickly and has been poorly executed in its construction.

At Beauscape, we only use top quality durable materials in our designs and we prefer to work with locally sourced products and materials procured directly at source. We use oak sleepers in a majority of our projects for edgings, walls, raised planters etc due to the strength versatility and cost effectiveness. We only ever procure timber from certified merchants which come from sustainable sources. Eco base and Eco sand can be used for the construction of foundations of driveways and patios and is a great way to cut carbon emissions and cost in certain construction applications.

The up-and-coming practice of online landscape design allows professional landscapers to remotely design and plan sites through manipulation of two-dimensional images without ever physically visiting the location. Due to the frequent lack of non-visual, supplementary data such as soil assessments and pH tests, online landscaping necessarily must focus on incorporating only plants which are tolerant across many diverse soil conditions which can often restrict the true potential of a landscape or garden.

I personally advise against this method as I feel it’s the personality of the clients that has to shine through the project especially the clients quirks and let’s face it we all have them. There are innumerable other design factors and considerations brought to the complex process of designing a garden that is beautiful, well functioning, and thrives over time this is next to impossible to achieve in an online questionnaire and shouldn’t be attempted in my opinion.
