Why now is the perfect time to design your dream garden

Ok, so your garden might not be front of mind in the dreary months of autumn and winter but hear us out. While the gardening jobs are minimal, it’s the perfect time to start planning for your new landscaped garden. It’s all too easy to push it aside and then wish you’d been more organised when spring and summer come around.

If you want your revamped garden ready to enjoy by summer, we recommend you kick things off in autumn/winter. We know, it’s hard to think about summer when you’re in the depths of winter but now is the perfect time to consider what you need and want from your garden.

So, set your mind back to summer. Think about what you loved and loathed about it. Sit in your garden with a steaming cuppa and try to see past the stark winter and picture a glorious summers day. Jot some ideas down, make a sketch and jump on Pinterest and start building a vision board. A lovely rainy-day activity.

Cue the professionals

If you have ambitious ideas for your garden, want to invest in your property (and your enjoyment of it), and you have incredibly high standards, using a professional landscaping company, such as ourselves, is the way forward. 

The devil is in the detail

When working with professional garden design and landscapers, such as Isola, you’ll get a bespoke and full-picture design. It will consider all the nuances of your external space, offer inspiration to your ideas, and you’ll have a detailed planting scheme. You’ll have peace of mind that your trees and plant-life have been positioned in the ideal locations, factoring sunlight, soil conditions and neighbouring plants. Plans are thoughtfully designed to ensure interest all year round, as well as artistic structure, size and sensitive grouping of complementary plants.

Practically perfect in every way

Your ideas and needs will be nurtured and complimented to create a scheme that works practically and aesthetically. Whether you want that ‘wow’ factor when hosting guests, a peaceful retreat to improve your wellbeing or you desire that outdoor kitchen garden, your plans should meet and exceed your brief.

Money talks

If the question of money is holding you back, we’ve put together a handy blog post on setting a budget for your garden design and build to give you an idea of how we work and approach the budget.

Precious time

It can take many months to plan, design and execute a build, and if you’re going to do it, you’ll want to do it properly. The more you rush and cut corners, the more it’ll cost you later down the line. The design process should take time – there’s a whole host of things to do to get you that ideal scheme before the landscapers move in. So, if you’d like to enjoy your newly landscaped garden next summer – get in touch for a chat and kick-start your design process this winter.
