A Simple Way For Landscapers To Commission Garden Designs Or Planting Plans 

My Garden Design is an online platform that bridges the gap between landscaping and garden design.  As a landscaper himself, founder Paul Baker realised that there was a need for a  hassle free garden design service. One that understands what landscapers and their clients need from the process.

Many clients find it confusing to deal with both a landscaper and a garden designer.  They prefer a simple design and build process with just one company to deal with.  All the client wants to know is what they will be getting for their money.  What will their new garden look like and is their chosen landscaper somebody who will work efficiently and get the job done.  

In Paul’s experience, some clients can start to get anxious if designs and quotes take a long time to appear.  They start to lose faith and will frequently ring up to chase their plan. Which of course puts a strain on the client-landscaper relationship.  It can also use valuable time during the landscapers’ day.

Landscapers, on the other hand want to build beautiful gardens and have happy clients who are generous with their word of mouth recommendations.  Every landscaper also wants a healthy work-life balance.  Toiling on site all day is physically tough.  Running the business is mentally tough and spending evenings designing is exhausting.  

My Garden Design provides a lifeline for landscapers. It helps them to meet all of their client’s needs and to build a reputation for working efficiently.  In turn that reputation will lead to better, and more interesting work.  With My Garden Design you can offer a design and build service without having to either employ a garden designer or spend hours wrestling with design software.
