Sarah has given me the most beautiful garden

Sarah has given me the most beautiful garden. She listened to my ideas and stretched them even further. I could never have got here without her. Her landscaping was inspired and her planting has provided me with a year round of delight. I would thoroughly recommend her.

I am writing this in my study overlooking my wonderful new garden From the first meeting to the final work I could not have been happier She created a garden for us that 18 months on looks brilliant even at this time of the year She was patient with us as myself and my wife sometimes had different ideas my wife usually won but the end result is that we have a garden and new patio we can enjoy and one that our grandchildren can also play in.

I am delighted with the finished garden – it looks just like the original design

I interviewed four landscape garden designers I decided to appoint Sarah Oxby at Hampstead Garden Design. She stood out as well prepared, professional, very friendly and showed me a lovely portfolio of her work to date. I found her to be very helpful throughout the process, dealing with the landscapers, planning permissions and the design of the garden through to appropriate flowers. I am delighted with the finished garden – it looks just like the original design and I now have a lovely outlook and a relaxing and very pretty place to sit on warm summer evenings.

I would highly recommend her service.

Sarah transformed our neglected and overgrown garden into a vision from a glitzy magazine

Sarah transformed our neglected and overgrown garden into a vision from a glitzy magazine.  She is very knowledgeable about planning issues and tenaciously dealt with the Council, chasing them and convincing them on the proposed design and in the end obtaining the planning permission for exactly what we wanted.

Sarah recommended interesting and durable materials like composite wood for the decking and resin for the driveway.  The contractor we chose upon her recommendation was also excellent.  With Sarah's guidance we selected a great variety of plants for the garden.  She planted them herself and all of the plants are thriving 2 months after planting.

We are extremely happy with the final result - we got a designer urban garden with plenty of entertainment and relaxation space and a beautiful selection of plants.  Can't recommend Sarah enough.

‘The result was just what we wanted’ ‘Within our budget’

We didn’t want to wait for years of our own trial and error. A friend recommended Sarah and using her to design and plant our new gardens has been a real pleasure. She listened to our wants and dislikes, surveyed the new gardens carefully to take account of changes of level, supplied plans we could understand, noted our responses to her proposals, adapted them to what we wanted and oversaw the complete and imaginative redesign and planting of the new gardens.

Why work with a garden designer?

Having a beautiful garden is something which many of us dream of. A place to relax on a warm summerʼs evening or lazily unwind on a Sunday morning. So how do you achieve this dream…

Creating a new garden is a journey, which takes time and detailed knowledge. It is an investment in your home and in your lifestyle. One which we hope you will be thrilled with for many years to come. A skilled garden designer will guide you through the journey, helping you to avoid the pitfalls and expensive mistakes.

In designing a garden there are many questions to be answered, which can be exciting and also a little daunting to the inexperienced.

How to layout the garden?

This is possibly one of the most important questions. We can help you to think about how you would like to use the garden. A good layout design can make the difference between a mediocre garden and a fantastic garden.

Planting design.

There is a plant and for every soil and situation. The key is in knowing how to pick the right ones. We will work with you to design a planting scheme which will thrive in your garden and which you will love to look at all year round.

We can guide you through the details of paving, patios and pergolas, ever popular water features and outdoor kitchens and the placement of furniture and lighting.

And in order to create your garden we will introduce you to skilled, experienced and trustworthy landscapers who are as committed as we are to getting the details of your garden just right.

 

The Garden Design Process

We offer a full garden planning service and can advise on all aspects of planting and landscape design, helping you to create a garden which is beautiful and suited to your individual needs and budget. This process usually follows the following steps.

Our design process begins with a site survey.  We measure the dimensions and ground levels of your garden and analyse the soil and aspect to ensure that the design is tailored to your garden.
We work with you to design a bespoke layout plan for your garden, taking into account your lifestyle, tastes, budget and the local environment.  If necessary, we are happy to liaise with local planning authorities to obtain consents and have particular experience of working in conservation areas.
We are happy to introduce you to reputable landscapers who can build your new garden according to our detailed specification.  If you wish, we will monitor the construction to ensure that the garden is built according to the plans.
Each planting design is bespoke and is developed to reflect your tastes and also the plants which are best suited to your particular garden.  Plants are sourced from our network of local growers and nurseries, who can be relied upon to supply good quality specimens.  We set out and install the planting for you and are happy to provide planting maintenance, to ensure that your garden offers many years of enjoyment.

Hampstead Garden Design: Services we don’t offer

Here at Hampstead Garden Design, we believe in specialising in the thing we do best. Namely working with you to completely redesign your garden, from the initial site survey through to planting the last bulb. For that reason there are some jobs which we donʼt take on.

However we do know lots of lovely people who do and are happy to put you in contact if this is what you need.


You can enjoy gorgeous plants and greenery whatever space you have available. Whether it’s a shaded courtyard, a sunny terrace or a penthouse roof garden, we’ll design a space that is perfect for you to relax and enjoy.

To find out more about how we can help you create a stylish, lasting garden, suited to your budget, please contact Sarah Oxby, Hampstead Garden Design to arrange an initial consultation.
