WELCOME TO JONATHAN TODD GARDEN DESIGN
Creating Beautiful Gardens
We're passionate about creating beautiful gardens tailored to your individual needs. Whether you’ve got a blank canvas or a garden that needs a new lease of life, I can offer you the creative vision and knowledge to realise the garden of your dreams.
Perhaps you have a clear idea of what you would like but aren’t sure how to go about it, or you’re new to owning a garden and need sensible, clear and comprehensive assistance and advice. Whatever your needs and the size of your garden, you will find I’m able to design a practical, enjoyable and rewarding outside space.
Based in Farnham, Surrey, we work with clients across the South East of England, London and beyond. I offer a full range of friendly, personalised and professional garden design services including consultation, new planting or a complete design service and build management.
"I am a fully-trained, professional garden designer. I have always been passionate about gardens, plants and landscape. I love spending time working in or relaxing and enjoying my own garden. My practice is based in Farnham, Surrey, and I’m happy to visit clients in Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, Berkshire, London or further afield.
I trained at the highly-respected Garden Design School at Painshill Park in Surrey from where I graduated with distinction. I have also worked in garden maintenance, giving me insight into how to design gardens that will look good for many years.
I have designed and implemented a range of garden designs and have a broad knowledge and experience of the elements of good garden design: aesthetics, practicality, hard landscaping and planting. However, every client and every project is unique and I take the time to listen to my clients’ wishes and needs and design the garden they want. I am also very sensitive to my clients’ taste, requirements, budget and ability."
Usually a site meeting which we will take a brief of your requirements. We will then prepare a proposal outlining recommendations and the design process for your garden. This can be stand-alone, in order to give you insight and advice into making changes to your garden, or in preparation for design work.
RESIDENTIAL GARDEN DESIGN
presentation of a full design
planting plans and plant schedules
construction drawings and specification
planning applications (where appropriate)
We can create and implement planting plans and plant schedules for new areas of planting or to renovate existing beds and borders. This can be part of a broader design service or as a stand-alone service
TENDERING AND IMPLEMENTATION MANAGEMENT
Subsequent to creating a design for your garden, we will prepare a full specification and tender documentation for contractors. We will then oversee the construction process on your behalf. This will enable the garden to be built according to your approved design and specifications.
Including a maintenance schedule and regular site visits to ensure your new garden remains looking at its very best.
Thank you Jonathan for the wonderful planting and design you created for both the back and front garden. It is lovely to deal with such an easy going yet professional person. You have created a lovely area at the back of the garden for us to sit and play, whilst the front is really starting to look finished. Thank you again for all you have done.
Jonathan … Has transformed our garden from an open field to a relaxing colorful area with multiple natural features – a garden we’re now very proud of. What I’ve really appreciated is his professionalism, time, expertise and thorough approach. He listened to my embryonic thoughts and ideas/ key features then transforming these into a concept that truly reflected my wishes. He followed the project through liaising with the contractors very efficiently which was incredibly supportive for me, including attention to detail right to the end. Great outcome!
The garden is brilliant, I still can’t believe it’s my garden
