Garden design or refurbishing requires an artistic flair and a deep knowledge of the practical processes involved in constructing, planting and maintaining a garden. Equally important is the knowledge necessary to be able to design within a finite budget; this essential is so often regarded as an afterthought!
Seymours Landscapes’ professional garden design service is based upon our team’s thorough knowledge of landscape architecture and garden design in theory and practice, going on to construction detailing and finally to plant knowledge in both identification and use. Also extremely important to the end result are effective project management and a skilled and experienced workforce. This knowledge, experience and the many skills are all utilised to provide you with what our clients regard as the best in garden design and build (see comments below).
Seymours Landscapes’ garden design and landscaping service is available throughout Surrey and South West London and is organised from our base at Squire’s Garden Centre Cobham. Seymours Landscapes’ garden design and build service has been perfected over the many decades since the 1920s when Basil Seymour, started his landscape business out of a nursery founded by his father just after the Great War.
We believe that the methods that have been practiced over many decades, achieve the most successful and cost-effective garden designs for the domestic home owner.
There are three phases: First: garden design. Second: landscape construction - which is sometimes known as hard landscaping. Third: the designing with plants the beds and borders in the garden; (though some of our clients prefer to plant their gardens themselves). Not all garden projects require the time and cost involved in the production of a scaled drawing. If you have clear requirements and they are such that we can describe our part in fulfilling them with a written description of works, the design stage can be left out and we will provide you with a free written specification and quotation.

Some of the comments we have received recently from our clients:

“The work undertaken in our garden has included design, hard landscaping, soft landscaping, turfing and planting. In every aspect we have been delighted with the professionalism, standard of workmanship, courtesy and good humour with which the work has been undertaken. As a result of our praise and recommendations, two of our friends are in process of having work done by Seymours. We would not hesitate to use Seymours again and look forward to your visit later this year.”

“Many thanks for an excellent job. The garden looks great. Once again Seymours maintain your usual very high standards”

“This work was very well done and we are most pleased with the result. Over a period of two and a half years your company has carried out a great deal of work in our garden in a highly professional manner. We appreciate your very high standards of workmanship and the excellent service you provide”

Seymours Garden Design Method:

  • The initial meeting in your garden with our estimator and project manager, who will be your contact throughout the project, is free of charge and without any obligation.
  • He will write to confirm your requirements and provide you with details of our garden design service and our proposal.
  • Our designer will visit you by appointment, to discuss the brief and the project in detail and to survey the garden.
  • We will suggest a budget for you to approve or adjust according to your own priorities.
  • Our designer will visit again with a fully-costed draft plan of the layout, for your approval.
  • We will incorporate any adjustments and then deliver to you our scaled drawing, which will be accompanied by a fixed price quotation for constructing the garden. This should reflect the budget we have agreed with you at the outset, adjustd for changes in the brief.
  • Our designs are drawn up with the confidence of knowing that our project manager and site operatives have all the necessary skills to implement them.
  • We retain copyright of our garden designs because our business is that of creating gardens, rather than merely acting as consultants.
  • Because we provide a complete garden design and build service, you will avoid frustrations that sometimes result from three-way, designer-contractor-client relationships. You will be engaging one company that has clear responsibility for your garden right through to completion and beyond.
You will find our offices in Greenways, Lyne, Chertsey KT16 0AL, (we were previously based at Squire's Cobham Garden Centre). Please call us to arrange a meeting, either in our office or at your home
