Considerations for
Your Garden Landscaping Project

Fully Understand Your Garden

Sadly, creating a beautiful garden isn’t simply a case of making a wish list and throwing everything together. As our landscaping, construction and groundwork contractors will discover during a home visit, your outside space has a unique set of characteristics. For example, as with your neighbourhood, your garden will have its own topography.

The specific nature of the garden at your Leatherhead property will also create microclimates. These are based on the amount of sun and shade certain areas receive. This means that the installation of retaining walls, garden rooms and, of course, a swimming pool will have a knock-on effect around your space.

Microclimates can include:

  • Full Sun
  • Shade
  • Partial Shade
  • Deep Shade

Patterns relating to the effects of sun and shade dictate what plants can thrive in your garden. In turn, this understanding also influences where we advise placing individual plants as well as hard landscaping features.

Create and Link Space

If you’re planning to completely transform your garden, we advise looking at your available space like a blank canvas. This approach lets you maximise the potential of what you have by creating designated areas. From here, consider viewing your Leatherhead garden as an outside room that our landscaping, construction and groundwork contractors can help you break down into smaller rooms.

Our hard landscaping services include laying bespoke pathways that link features. As such, no part of your garden will feel cut off or isolated.

The creation of specific zones works especially well if you have a sun trap in a particular corner. Naturally, the same is true for shaded spaces too.

Focus on the Details

This advice applies as much to minor work like planters and retaining walls as it does much larger additions like garden rooms and swimming pools. Whether you’re adding or upgrading a certain element, you must consider how the new product or installation will fit and function within your existing design scheme.

For example, if you designed your current garden around the colour and texture of a hard landscaping feature like a patio, would simply switching it out for decking work? How would natural timber look in that environment? Will it clash with your fencing?

Without the experience of landscaping, construction and groundwork contractors, it’s not always easy to imagine how, or if, different materials will work together. With Onyx Groundworks & Landscaping managing your project in Leatherhead, you have all the advice and guidance you need for a garden you will love long into the future.
