Good design is at the heart of all we do and is the starting point for all successful projects. Based in Newport, south Wales we offer a complete range of garden design and garden consultancy services within a 100 mile radius.
The typical garden design process works as follows:
A site visit is where we will discuss your needs and ideas for the garden. We will create a detailed design brief which will form part of a client agreement along with a quotation outlining the design fees.
Site Survey and Analysis
A full measured survey of the garden marking all the important existing features such as aspect, soil type and level changes.
The outline plan will show the main form of the proposed design. Accompanying this will be a written rationale to explain the design illustrated with photographs and samples of materials. This will be accompanied by a rough budget for the landscaping works.
Final Presentation Plan
This large scaled plan provides full details of the proposed landscaping including structures and features within the garden and is supported by detailed construction drawings where necessary.
The presentation plan package will also include a full quotation detailing all the landscaping work needed to implement the design, excluding planting.
The final part of the design process will be the preparation of a full planting plan. This will include a detailed planting layout, a colour elevation, sample plant photographs, explanatory text and useful plant lists sorted by both plant name and plant type.
The planting plan will be accompanied by a fixed price quotation for the actual planting.

We provide a complete landscape gardening service, creating beautiful and functional gardens for many different clients.
Since 1994 Tim Alexander has been building gardens of all shapes and sizes, from small, intimate, urban courtyards to large, child friendly, family gardens. Whether you want a modern or traditional garden, a space for entertaining, or a haven for plants, we have the skills and experience to build the garden you want.
We usually work from our own designs but also offer a “build only” service, building gardens for other designers or for clients who already have their own designs.
We pride ourselves on the meticulous and creative approach that we take to all that we do and feel that the results and client testimonials speak for themselves.
All our work is completed to a fixed price quotation. Please see our portfolio pages for examples of our work.
Not only do we carry out large landscaping projects but we also undertake smaller one off work. For more information please see our services page.
All gardens need careful regular work to enable them to grow and flourish as intended. We provide a flexible and comprehensive garden maintenance service tailored to suit you and your garden, whether you want a visit once a week or once a year.
From regular mowing to annual pruning our qualified and experienced gardeners will look after your garden and keep it in the best possible condition throughout the year. We can provide a “one-off” gardening service for all kinds of work, from weeding beds and pruning overgrown shrubs and climbers, to clearing and restoring neglected gardens as well as more seasonal work such as soil improvement, lawn treatment, seeding and bulb planting.
Our garden maintenance service is completely adaptable to suit any size of garden and to fit any budget. We also provide expert tree surgery and other specialist trades.
