Graduate Landscapes has over 30 years of experience in garden design, construction and maintenance. Graduate Landscapes offers bespoke garden services to create beautiful private and commercial gardens in the South East of England. We provide original and elegant garden designs, combined with exacting construction and glorious planting. From our Surrey and Hampshire bases, we provide garden services that include lighting and irrigation systems, garden maintenance, tree surgery and swimming pool design and construction.
Graduate Landscapes have considerable experience designing and building commercial gardens, show house gardens and high-end property developers gardens.
Graduate Landscapes prides itself in having good working relationships with some of the leading house builders and developers. We recognise their requirements for a pro–active, hands on contractor with a short lead in time. Our in-house garden design team are regularly creating cost effective show house schemes for some well-known names including Barratts Homes, Bellways Homes, Linden Homes and Cala Homes, to name but a few. We have continually pushed back the boundaries of show house design, using cedar cladding and green walls to soften areas of brickwork, and sedum roofing on shed roofs to green up the views from the first floor. Bespoken furniture, planters and play equipment help to provide unique solutions to the myriad of different shapes and sizes of garden we put our hands too.
For larger bespoken developments we may well commence works at the planning stage submitting concise, thoughtful and practical applications to speed up the process providing environmentally friendly cost effective designs that planners can relate to, and frequently pass with little fuss.. We would expect to continue with the developers to client handover, doing both hard and soft works to the high standards demanded by all our clients.
Our in-house tree surgeons are readily available to clear sites, work on individual trees and partake in woodland management. Our qualified and experienced workforce select, set out and plant the garden that is appropriate for the time of year and the client’s budget.
Our in-house garden maintenance team makes sure the garden looks as good as the day they were planted, and our 12-month guarantee on all plants gives the clients the confidence that leads to many new recommendations
Graduate have considerable experience designing and building show house gardens for many of the leading house builders in the south.
Our designers are responsible for the design process and would expect to meet the client on site as the building programme gathers speed. Client require for an inspirational wow scheme with interest form and above all colour throughout the year in what can often be a confined urban space. By the clever use of screening trees, we try to create a private living area while the use of architectural planting provides a planting plan unique to each garden. We have been at the forefront of using cedar cladding and green roofs to soften sheds and harsh brickwork, while angled hardwood decking, pergola structures and bespoken furniture all help to improve the quality of the living space. Activities for children, for example croquet and boulle give a familiar lived in look so popular for first time buyers. Graduate offer a weekly gardening service to keep the areas looking fresh and well maintained to handover and beyond.
