Garden DesignJamie is an experienced garden designer and has created original designs for numerous sizes and styles of garden and to meet the varying needs of his clients.

The design process:

    • Initial Consultation
      An informal discussion between client and designer at the proposed site. This gives a chance to briefly view the garden, discuss ideas and to find out whether the project suits both parties.
    • Client Brief
      A more formal meeting to discuss your preferences and what you expect from your garden. This is our chance to sit down and talk about what you like and dislike, your particular styles and tastes e.g. formal, informal, contemporary, any features etc. This will form the basis of the project plan and design.
    • Quotation
      Following the client brief we can then provide a quotation based on the details discussed.
    • The Survey
      Upon agreement of the quotation a detailed survey will be carried out.
    • The Outline Plan
      Once the brief and survey are complete a plan is drawn up. This is a scale drawing of the proposed design, in pencil, for the client to look over with the designer and make any necessary changes.
    • The Design
      Once the outline plan has been agreed upon the formal design is produced. This drawing is to scale and will include the list of materials used and any relevant construction drawings for landscaper to work from.
planting process Soft landscaping is our speciality, as finding the right plants for a garden can often be a daunting process. There are many variables to consider (soil type, aspect etc) that can lead to mistakes if not properly thought through. We can design a planting plan tailored specifically for your garden that will avoid these common problems and allow you to just sit back and enjoy the results. Be it shady woodland areas or hot border planting, by drawing on our expertise we can also plan and deliver planting that will delight throughout the year.

      • Client Brief. A more formal meeting to discuss your preferences and what you want from your garden. This will involve discussing the style of planting – formal or informal, colour schemes, any specific requirements or maintenance needs and of course identifying any favourite plants you may wish to include.
      • Quotation. From the client brief we can then provide a quotation for the proposed planting plan.
      • The Survey. Upon agreement of the quotation a detailed survey will be carried out. A planting survey takes into consideration all the horticultural elements and includes all existing plants that the client has expressed an interest in keeping.
      • The Design. Once the outline plan has been agreed upon the formal design is produced. This drawing is to scale with all plant quantities detailed. Also included in the full design plan is a proposed plant schedule (list of plants, quantities and prices), maintenance program and a detailed quotation for the work to be carried out by ourselves.

What Our Clients Say

We consulted Jamie on laying some decking but along with this he has transformed our garden in to a lovely usable space for us and our son. He convinced us to have 3 large fir trees taken down, which we were a little unsure about, but was the best thing we could have done! The light and space we now have is amazing. Jamie and his ‘troops’ worked hard to get the job done on time and with true professionalism. I can’t recommend Jamie Morris Garden Services enough and have already recommended him to all our friends who need garden work!
