FAQ

Why hire a garden designer? It seems like a lot to pay!

Garden designers are trained in essential aspects of design, such as balance, proportion, rhythm and continuity. We're well grounded in the science of plants and how to select them. We ensure that every plant chosen suits your specific terrain, light, water availability, exposure, and your maintenance preferences - are you a capable gardener or want something low maintenance? We establish this right upfront. Hiring a garden designer helps you save money in the long run, as we help you find the best solution for designing your available space, using logic as well as experience. Aesthetics are important, but so is functionality! 

Why hire Enchanted Gardens?

Our guiding principle is the love for plants. Our emphasis is on the plantings, rather than on the hard landscape - a landscaper will install your decking or paving and leave the rest up to you. We take a holistic view of your lifestyle and needs, and ensure that plants are central to the design, with hard landscaping complementing it rather than playing a central role in the design.

What is Enchanted Gardens' style?

Our signature style combines English country style with natural grasses and perennials, always maintaining a strong structure to ensure year-round interest. But the client is always the point of departure, so it is your preference that will always take precedence, and we will guide your choices to ensure that they are always site-appropriate, whether you like a modern contemporary style or English country.

Who will build my garden? 

You are welcome to carry out the work yourself. If you have preferred contractors, you can hire them. If you would like us to assist you in finding a contractor, we can do so. We will only recommend contractors who work to the highest quality standards.

Let us know if you have any other questions and we'll answer them and add them to the list!
