At Noble Landscapes we’re happy to give you a free quote for your garden project. This usually involves adding you to our appointment waiting list, a site visit and project discussion, then giving you an accurate price for the works. This often includes a little bit of free garden design - working out the best way to execute your ideas, maybe even a sketch to go with the quote so we know we’re on the same page.
If you haven’t got any ideas for your garden makeover, or want more than a rough sketch, you’ll need to book a garden design package. This means we have the time to develop a plan to make the most of your garden and your budget. The design is yours to keep so if you decide you want to use the plans to do the work yourself that’s fine too.
This simple garden makeover transforms the space in a minimal but functional way. With clean lines and clearly defined areas it's now a much more useable space.
Our waiting list is currently open for Autumn projects. Please do get in touch if you'd like to discuss your garden ideas.
It’s the first day of Spring on Sunday! It’s may still be chilly, but if you fancy catching some sunshine a cosy picnic might be the perfect way. Or how about a BBQ on the beach? Here are some of our favourite accessories:
1. Spring Grey Sandstone - a classic but contemporary choice with varying shades of grey which works as a neutral base for a garden colour palette.
2. Cemento Grey Porcelain - for a high end modern minimal look with clean lines and smooth surface.
3. Raveena Sandstone - with subtle tones of oranges and pink for a warmer colour palette, works well with orange brickwork buildings
4. Concrete Slabs - an option for lower budgets which still looks smart and simple
Of course, we can lay any type of patio - if you have a specific style in mind just let us know and we'll be happy to help.
The clients wanted to transform this uneven area of the garden into a useable pathway round the house which could also be used as a seating area. The grey sandstone is laid in a grid instead of the classic pattern for a clean, minimal look. Here's what they had to say:
"David was great at coming round to view the site and fully explained our options for different finishes and costs. Kept us updated on run up to work. He and his brother put in the path to a very high standard in less than 3 days, working quietly, cleanly and were very professional. David popped in after the storm to make sure all was ok. Would not hesitate to use again."
Linda and Ian's garden had a lot of uneven steps and paving which were becoming dangerous trip hazards. As well as that they wanted a lower maintenance garden with level patios to use as seating areas to catch the sun at different times of the day.
This ended up one of our biggest projects of the year, featuring terracing, sandstone steps, patios, and walling to transform the garden. Here's what the clients had to say:
"From start to finish David has been amazing. He is passionate about his work and the end result is outstanding. He pays attention to the smallest detail and customer satisfaction is of utmost priority to him. We were so lucky to have found him especially when some tradesmen are both unreliable and overpriced. Nothing seems to phase him and he will find a solution to unexpected changes in plan. We liked the fact that he gave us a set price which remained throughout the job unless we added something extra along the way. If you want a first class service then please look no further you won't be disappointed. Everyone is admiring the transformation to our garden and highly praising David's work. His brother works well alongside him when needed and is very enthusiastic when delegated tasks. We are so thankful to both of them and thrilled with our garden. A word of advice... make sure you have a large supply of Jammie Dodgers !!
6 Place to Find Inspiration for your Garden
If you’re planning a garden makeover it’s never too early to start collecting inspirational reference images. When we speak to a client who has these as a starting point it means we’re on the same page from the first meeting and can get straight to the fun part of working out how to make it happen. If you’re stuck for where to look, here are 6 ideas for where to find garden inspiration:
🌿 Pinterest - the ultimate site for inspiration, search by trends, garden styles and materials and get pinning to a dream garden board .
🌿 Magazines - go analogue and get mood boarding, or see if your local library offers free digital magazines (Dundee City Council does). Check out Modern Gardens and Home & Garden.
🌿 Instagram - if you know roughly what you’re looking for then you can search by that hashtag and see lots of real-world examples e.g. #timberpergola. Save or screenshot the ones you like for later.
🌿 Take a Walk - have a look around your own neighbourhood or a nearby area and see if you can find any inspiring gardens. If you do take pictures be mindful of the owners' privacy.
🌿 Gardening TV Shows - there are plenty to choose from, you’ll often find out about new trends and can research these elsewhere
🌿 National Trust/Historic Scotland/Open Garden Schemes - These gardens may well be a lot grander scale than your own planned makeover but it doesn’t mean you can’t take inspiration from them! Whether you find a little seating area that you love, a herb garden or a colour of stone paving take a photo and add it to your inspiration folder.
This composite deck is the perfect spot for catching some sun outside the summerhouse. We also laid an artificial lawn which works as an additional seating area. The result is a much easier to maintain garden with plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. Here's what the clients had to say:
"From the outset, we were impressed by the courteous and professional manner of David. He has an eye for detail and carried out meticulous work to meet our needs. He was always eager to help with small associated tasks. The work was carried out within the agreed timescale and to a very high standard. We would unreservedly recommend Noble Landscapes."
This composite deck is the perfect spot for catching some sun. We also created a sandstone patio in Raveena to compliment the warm tones and a concrete summerhouse base to the installers' exact specifications. The result is a much easier to maintain garden with plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. Here's what the client had to say:
"David has just completed a patio and decking project in our back garden. It has been a wonderful experience for us watching a fantastic young man doing a most professional job. His attention to detail was first class and his work ethic top drawer. David has proven his calibre and both my wife and I would thoroughly recommend Noble Landscapes. He is a credit to his profession and himself"
