Everyone deserves a beautiful, practical and easy to maintain garden, however large or small and whatever the budget. At Scamells Garden Design I specialise in transforming your outdoor space into inspiring landscape that complementing your lifestyle, and create a garden that is as unique as you and your property.
My bespoke services are tailored to your needs, whether you require a full garden design, expert advice, inspiration to bring your existing garden back to life, or new planting.
I listen carefully to your thoughts and work with you to create a garden that meets your aspirations. With training in garden design and experience in horticulture I have the skill, expertise, time and enthusiasm to make your dream garden a reality. I am there for you to help with every step from planing to completion of your garden, so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the view!
I work on projects based in south-west London, Surrey, West Sussex, but can venture further afield too.
From initial consultation to construction and planting of your new garden, I work with you to create a beautiful and functional space that reflects your aspirations. During the process, I listen to your ideas and prepare all necessary documents, from concept sketches to final plans and visualisations, as well as technical drawings and specifications. In addition, I can also monitor construction of your garden, create planting plans and schedules, and supply and install planting.
When your garden changed or lost its appeal over the years and you would like to bring it back to life but wiping the slate clean is not your preferred option, garden renovation is a perfect solution. This service includes adding new elements and styling to highlight your space and its potential, editing and refreshing planting, as well as making sure that any existing features are repaired and functional. The process is similar to full garden design although not all steps might be required.
I offer standalone planting design within the existing layout of your garden. I ensure that your new planting arrangement is not only beautiful to look at but also suited to the site conditions and friendly to the wildlife, making it long-lasting and easier to maintain. I also supply and install planting for you, and I always prepare a detailed maintenance plan so you can look after your new planting correctly.
This service is intended for when you would like some ideas and inspiration to improve any aspect of your garden. My professional advice is tailored to address issues you would like to resolve, be it layout, styling or planting. It includes a site visit to evaluate your garden or the part you need help with, and talk about your aspirations. Afterwards, I prepare a written report presenting my ideas and recommendations, highlighting your garden’s strengths and weaknesses and providing a wealth of references.
I have a varied portfolio of landscape work, all of which highlight the skills and expertise I can bring to your garden. In addition, I demonstrate my unique style, ideas and creativity through my landscape designs, from small urban gardens to meadows and courtyards.
Please see below to have a look at some of my work.
The new build modern bungalow owners planned to rent the property out, therefore they required simple and easy to maintain landscaping and planting. The south-facing garden was slightly sloped and partly overshadowed by a tall leylandii hedge, belonging to neighbouring property.
The owners of this large suburban garden wanted their outside space to be somewhere they could escape from their busy jobs, entertain friends and look beautiful without requiring too much maintenance.
This large garden on the verge of the Surrey Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is nestled in woodland and surrounds a carefully renovated and modernised Arts and Craft’s property, approached by a long, slightly sloping curved gravel driveway.
