At CL, we pride ourselves on being creative and carefully considering how a garden or landscape merges with its surrounding environment and architecture. For projects that include multiple landscaping features and upgrades, we would always recommend our Outdoor Architecture (OA) service. Below are some of the OA services that CL offer.

All gardens and landscapes offer differing challenges and in addition every client is unique, so sometimes you may require custom services.

1. S I T E consultation

This service would typically be suited to a client who has a very clear idea on their requirements and the project is straight forward. This may entail making a change to just one part of your garden, perhaps a new fence or like for like replacement of an existing feature.

·        Onsite consultation

·        Photographic survey

·        Simple sketches or inspirational images

·        Project quote


2. C O N C E P T sketch

This service would naturally be suited to a client who has some ideas of their design requirements but needs further guidance, inspiration or vision on how to design the overall layout. This type of design would likely retain some existing features, but may propose several new features and a refreshed look.

·        Onsite consultation

·        Aerial / drone survey

·        Photographic / full measured survey

·        Mood boards

·        Concept sketch plans

3. D E T A I L drawings

This service would suite a client who has a blank canvas to work on. Perhaps a challenging large site, with basic ideas of the design requirements but needs a fully comprehensive detailed design. This is your premium service level. It is likely you want to completely change the existing space and make the whole garden personal to you.

If your projects require planning permission we can act as your agent. We can compile all of the relevant documents, submit the proposals and liaise with yourselves and the Local Authority until a decision has been made.

If your project requires structural specification, such as a retaining wall or a bridge design, we can work in partnership with our trusted engineers.


your outdoor architecture


your lifestyle

When it comes to constructing your garden into an inviting and functional outdoor living space, there are endless possibilities for incorporating landscape features that enhance the overall aesthetic, functionality, and enjoyment of your green retreat. 

From patios and decks that extend your living area, to pathways that create defined spaces, and firepits that provide warmth and ambiance, the choice of features depends on your lifestyle, preferences, surrounding environment and the unique characteristics of your home.

CL specialise in creating structures and spaces that maximise time spent outdoors. We use natures patterns to influence our designs. Our approach tends to be organic, incorporating flowing curves and naturalistic style.

The opportunities to be creative within a garden are really endless. You may want a small balcony renovation or a 10-acre plot design. We are open to any idea you may have or would like help creating. There are no boundaries within our sketch book (unless planning restrictions apply!) - we are excited about each and every enquiry.

Our team of experienced designers and craftsmen will work closely with you to understand your vision and create a landscape that reflects your personal preferences and harmonises with your property's unique site environment and architectural characteristics. We will carefully select plants that thrive in your climate, incorporate hardscaping elements that enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your outdoor space, and integrate features that add tranquillity and visual interest.

Beyond the realm of landscaping, we specialise in designing and constructing OA elements that elevate the experience of your green space. Along with all your typical landscaping features such as meandering paths, social gathering patios and awe-inspiring ponds, our team specialise in outdoor buildings, in particular semi-open structures, blurring the lines between the built environment and the surrounding landscape.


"Jamie is very professional, but personable at the same time. He listened to our ideas and worked with us to get the best design possible. He completed the planning application for us which made the whole process so much easier and he did all of this at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends."


" Jamie designed and built our outdoor kitchen/workspace utilising an unused area of the garden. Creating a flexible space for working outdoors on laptops and social BBQ’s in the summer and seasons beyond. Jamie’s attention to detail and flexibility with design and solutions during the build were invaluable with the quality of the end product. Whilst taking on a garden/outdoor space project could be daunting and stressful. Jamie’s communication, contact book and flexibility to work with ideas and propose new ones during and before the project, ensured the end project maximised the quality. Jamie and his colleague Ian are both very punctual, always attending on time and working to a consistent daily high standard. Jamie communicated the programmed activities for each day till completion and overcame any unknowns or material delays with solutions. My husband and I would recommend Jamie for any design and build outdoor space works with confidence. We have post completion received compliments from our friends and family who have since used the space with us."


"What a wonderful surprise! The overgrown jungle I inherited when I moved house has been turned into a beautiful country garden by Jamie and his team. His imaginative and practical ideas have resulted in a manageable area, with patio and pond, to enjoy and relax in for years to come. Even the fencing was no problem. Always professional and a pleasure to have around. Worth every penny."
