We believe in offering a tailor-made and comprehensive creative design process to meet our client’s requirements. Projects may vary in scale but all are approached with the same professionalism and exacting standards.

slate grey garden design plans are hand drawn and coloured with great care

Commissioning a garden design

When first contacted by a client, Richard will arrange a meeting to discuss their plans and aspirations for their new garden, this enables him to gain an understanding of the scale of the project. A proposal is then prepared for the client, recommending which design service they require and outlining the costs involved.

If Richard is commissioned, he will then return and take a full design brief, enabling him to then prepare concept drawings and a mood board for client approval. Once approved, he provides a hand rendered scale plan along with construction costs for the finished project. Clients are not obliged in any way to use Slate Grey to construct their garden and we are happy to work with outside contractors if required.

​Richard works with experienced garden designer Ali Diess, who also trained at the PSGD, London. Ali has a creative background and finishes the design concepts in watercolour, giving clients a unique artwork of their new garden.

Industry expertise and in-depth knowledge

Richard and Ali have trained to the highest standards and both hold a distinction level diploma in Garden Design awarded by the PSGD, London. Richard has been involved in landscape industry for the past 18 years and has gained a vast amount of experience over this time.

They both have in-depth knowledge of the diverse range of landscape styles, materials and finishes available and keep up-to-date with latest industry developments.

Well thought out planting schemes providing interesting colour, texture and form throughout the seasons, along with quality construction and original design, are all elements found in the gardens created by Richard and the team at Slate Grey.
