It may be that time of year when the garden gets put to bed and we're all involved with the build up to Christmas but now is the ideal time to rethink your garden for next Spring and Summer. Clients tend to contact very late in April or May hoping to transform their garden in a matter of weeks but this gives precious little time to produce a successful design. Autumn really is the best time to start the ball rolling and a great way to do this is to set up a design consultation. It's an opportunity to discuss objectives and expectations for your new garden together with a possible budget and to have contractors in place. Just imagine relaxing with a glass of something nice next summer with friends and family, admiring and enjoying your beautiful new garden!
