The time has come, you’re ready to tackle your garden! But, where do you start? You have a few ideas, you’ve tried a few things out – some have worked, others haven’t. Don’t worry, this is exactly where James Halls Garden Design comes to the rescue. Whether you want a full design or a planting plan or just a chat and some pointers in the right direction, we can offer you all or part of the services detailed below.


You’d like to design your own garden but you’re not sure where to start, we can talk through your ideas with you and give advice on layout, placement of interesting features and tips for successful planting.


If you decide that the full design process is for you, then the details are listed here (link to design process page). To summarise it includes – a client interview and brief, site survey, sketches of proposed design ideas, design proposal plan and planting plan.


A planting plan forms part of the full design process detailed above, but can also be drawn up as a stand alone service. Furthermore, we also offer a planting service, whereby we can implement the planting plan for you.

Contract Management

In implementing any design work, it is important to find the right contractor to do the work. This may include hard landscape construction such as laying a patio or building a wall or soft landscape work such as turfing or making borders. We can source contractors for you, obtain quotes and manage their workload once work commences helping to make the process of building your garden as straight forward as possible.

Maintenance Package

Your garden is now finished, sit back and enjoy! Of course, the reality is that at some point it will need some TLC to make sure it realises the full potential of the design. We offer a package which includes a maintenance visit every 12 weeks for the first year. Which can also be continued with two six monthly visits during the second year. Finally, we are always on hand for any on-going advice you may need.
