Through a blend of creativity, planning and attention to detail Mark Lane Designs Ltd can take care of your plans and aspirations.

​Mark Lane Designs Ltd works closely with you at every stage from initial consultation and planning through to the final construction, to create a garden or landscape that is a direct response to the architecture, topography and character of the landscape – a sense of place and space. Designs are functional, in-keeping with the surrounding environment, the wild space and its natural flora and fauna; building on integrated structures and the spaces between, in and around them.

Mark Lane Designs Ltd also has knowledge of and expertise for fully accessible gardens, whether for a private dwelling or for a public building, such as hospitals, disability charities, specialist units or rehabilitation centres.

​A multitude of styles are reflected from cottage garden, naturalistic, prairie, woodland, orchard, modern-contemporary, urban, green roof, seaside, formal, water garden, sustainable, sensory, green wall, communal, therapeutic, accessible, Japanese, English, French, Italian, tropical, desert, coastal … and many more; while being sensitive and sympathetic to the inherent nature of the site.
