Garden Design Ethos
With many years experience in Landscape Gardening I work with clients in London, Surrey and Sussex on bespoke garden and landscape projects in a collaborative and creative manner.
PLANNING GARDEN SPACES
Concept plans, detailed design and planting plans all to ensure you know exactly how to approach your garden build
BESPOKE GARDEN DESIGN
How it works (in a nutshell)
We start with a topographical survey and I put together your client brief.
I spend time on site getting to know its atmosphere and thinking about what it is you want to achieve and we look at lots of precedent images that might show me design styles that you like.
I put together some ideas and we get together to talk about what the possibilites are. We look at materials and possible planting choices and I move on to producing the concept design.
After concept design we work on detailed design: Setting out, general arrangements, scope of works, planting plans, planting schedules and other things that make a full package of information to give to a landscaper to build your garden.
An initial conversation and site meeting is totally free and provides the opportunity to see the site and discuss these these ideas in person.
I can also send some written information by email if you would like to read though my process.
Whether your style is classic contemporary or well worn vintage we have a fantastic little black book that draws upon a developed list of craftsmen, sculptors and furniture companies to add the essential items needed to make your garden the living breathing workable place you want to spend time in.
We have made it our business to work with the best plant nurseries that can source whatever you need. Whether you want a patchwork of perennials or large mature trees I know where to source these plants from and have the logistical experience to put together large orders and get them to site at the required time with the right men and machinery to get larger plants in place.
On very large projects where you might want very specific trees it is even possible to go on a buying trip out to the European nurseries.

ABOUT MAX JONES-LLOYD
I am passionate about Gardens and it is something that has been nurtured throughout my life. Some of my earliest memories are of growing my own row of gazenias and sweet peas and picking mange-tout and tomatoes for supper.
Now I rattle around in my Landrover (with my dogs) doing what I love best that is talking to my clients and sorting out their gardens. The most important things to me are my family, friends and kicking about in this beautiful county; cooking, walking and paddleboarding.
Please do get in touch and I will be happy to talk to you about your project.
18 months ago we looked out over a very boring third of an acre of lawn, which was never used. Today Max has transformed this into a remarkable space full of movement and colour. We simply cannot wait to walk down the garden to sit by the pond, a pond which never ceases to please me every morning when I look out of the bedroom window. Max brought her vision and expertise to a space we are proud to call our own, and which has had more use in the past 18 months than it had in the previous 18 years we have lived in the house.
