Garden Decking in Hove | Patios and Fencing
Our Landscaping Company’s Tips for a Successful Transformation

Whether you need to make a few changes here and there, or you want to overhaul your entire space, there are several points you should keep in mind when planning a landscaped garden. When you confirm that your garden transformation will go ahead, there’s understandable excitement. What kind of garden fencing will you choose? Do you prefer garden patios or garden decking? How will you use garden paving to link all your features? The questions quickly add up, and it’s easy to take wrong turns and make costly mistakes.

This is why choosing a time-served landscaping company to manage your project in Hove is one of the most important decisions in the entire process.

At DM Landscapes, we have designed and completed landscaped gardens of all types and sizes over the years. We can advise you on what works and what doesn’t, and what represents long-term value, but all while keeping your ideas at the heart of everything we do.

Below, we have looked at some of the ways we help homeowners turn dream gardens into realities.

The Cornerstones of Landscaping Work

Understanding Your Garden

Unfortunately, you can’t simply make a garden wish list and throw everything together. Your garden has specific characteristics. For example, it will have its own topography, much like your neighbourhood. Your region will have its own climate too.

The specific conditions in your garden will also create microclimates based on the amount of shade and sun certain areas receive. These microclimates include:

The patterns of sun and shade affect what kind of plants will thrive in your Hove garden. They will also influence where we recommend placing garden patios and garden decking.

Create and Link Space

When starting out on a landscaping project, you should view the land within your garden fencing as a blank canvas. No matter the size of your space, you can maximise its potential by creating designated areas. Our landscaping company encourages you to view your garden as an extra room, so it’s easy to break that down into smaller rooms too.

Because you can link the spaces you create with garden paving, they won’t feel isolated or cut off.

If you have a sun trap in one corner of your garden, you can use this to your advantage. Likewise, shaded areas in the afternoon provide welcome relief during summer.

Pay Attention to Details

This applies to minor upgrades as much as all-encompassing transformations. For example, if you like your current space, but want to leave the world of garden patios in favour of garden decking, you need to consider if the new feature will fit seamlessly into the existing design scheme.

You or your landscaping company may have designed your garden around the colour and texture of the patio. Will a switch to natural timber work in this environment? Could it clash with your garden fencing?

How materials complement each other is often hard for DIY enthusiasts to imagine during the planning phase, particularly when designing a garden from scratch. From garden paving options to types of timber, DM Landscapes offers guidance and advice to ensure your garden delivers long into the future.

The above points only scratch the surface when it comes to planning a landscaping project. To schedule a consultation with a member of our team in the comfort of your Hove home, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
