Design And Build

Over the years we've realised many clients like to be involved in the decision making process, while others are happy to leave everything up to us, so we decided that our team would work with clients in a manner that makes you feel comfortable and keeps you connected to the project.

Designing your space

Firstly a meeting is arranged with you so that we completely understand your outdoor space and your vision for how it can be best used. Then we find it is beneficial to throw around ideas. We might discuss these onsite, show you a design we have created as a concept plan or engage a landscape architect, depending on the complexities. We can provide 3D visualization if required, but what is really important is that our team and you the client, are all on the same page by understanding the direction and the final objective.

Maintenance considerations are taken into account during this phase. Factors such as soil, sunlight and water availability are key considerations. As a passionate member of the South West community, sustainability is built into each and every design we create. As a certified Waterwise Garden Irrigation business, our advice will be valuable to you at this point. We can help in developing a sustainable reticulation system and recommending suitable planting.

Building with our team

As we plan the building phase your lifestyle is a key consideration, it is important to establish a project timeline that works for you. We will keep you updated on the progress of your project. You’ll be pleased to know we only engage dedicated professionals and our own network of trusted trades people to carry out specialist work.

The hardscaping

We know through experience that the backbone of any great garden is the hard landscaping, providing a practical and decorative framework to your space. We recognise the importance of this area at Backyard Creations and we try and ensure we have allocated suitable resources, as this phase is so highly crucial.

Hard Landscaping that may be required for your garden includes:

  • Earthmoving
  • Retaining walls
  • Garden lighting
  • Swimming pools
  • Outdoor showers
  • Water features
  • Fire pit areas
  • Feature walls
  • Timber decks
  • Paving
  • Reticulation
  • Raised garden beds

The softscaping

These are the bells and whistles that really bring your landscape to life and can include:

  • Planting
  • Lawn
  • Artificial turf
  • Woodchip mulching
  • Decorative stone

Planting is a highly considered and essential element of any successful garden, giving it character and setting it apart from others. For these reasons Backyard Creations places great emphasis on getting the selection right. It can be carried out to give instant impact or with future growth in mind. Details such as the size, form and colour are all considered.

We use organic compost and natural tonics to help with the establishment of a new garden. Both plants and lawn thrive with the correct materials, supporting healthy growth and resistance to pests and disease.
