Front garden


Free quotes for the design & makeover of front gardens


We design and install traditional and contemporary front gardens in and around Carlisle, Wigton, Brampton, the North Lakes, the Eden Valley and along the Solway Coast, as well as parts of south-west Scotland and east-Northumbria. Other projects further into the Lake District, Scotland and Northumbria are welcomed and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We provide free quotes with no obligation for all front garden design and landscaping projects.


A front garden is the first thing you – and everybody else – sees when passing and approaching a home. A front garden sets the tone and character of a home, so it follows that its owner should want to create a space to be proud of. Many front gardens have been converted to be just parking spaces - without any element of garden remaining.

With the right thought and design, this isn't always necessary, because even done well, they don't always look the most appealing of approaches to a home. It is also worth bearing in mind that at a time when an owner decides to sell a home, the front garden can not only help sell it, but also achieve a higher price.

Most front gardens in reality need to achieve the right balance between visual appeal and practical convenience.


A front garden can be many things. It depends on its size, shape and the style of the home to which it belongs. Key to its design is also what the homeowner wants to achieve both in terms of style, practicalities, privacy and the level of maintenance required to sustain its appearance.

Regardless of the size of the space available, blending together the right combination of surfacing, permiter fencing and/or walls, plant schemes and storage is the key to achieving the perfect front garden. Depending on the needs of the homeowner, space may need to be allocated for bin storage, bike storage, cars parking and log storage. 

Small Front Gardens

Even small front gardens can be stylish and practical. Space issues can be resolved by incorporating vertical features such as trellis and framed structures - which will create a sense of  depth and perspective by creating contrasting layers of hard and soft surfaces.

Home Style Matching

Designing a front garden that sits harmoniously with its surroundings is important.

Wildlife Friendly Front Gardens

Self-seeding flowers and grasses are a great way to create a mini-prairie of sorts or meadow-style front garden. These wild flowers will attract butterflies, bees and other wildlife, and in turn, will look full of life and colour.

Front Gardens For All Seasons

Many front gardens can look bare, dull and grey in winter's colder months.

Low Maintenance Front Gardens

We all want a beautiful front garden, but an increasing number of us have the enthusiasm or time to maintain it. Low maintenance front garden design doesn't necessarily mean you it must be fully paved and lifeless.

Front Gardens With Driveways

Not all front gardens can be chocolate box-like resplendent with rolling lawns and lush foliage. Sometimes it's necessary to occupy a portion of the available space for parking. Sometimes almost all of the available space.
