Mark created an amazing garden space for all our family to enjoy. We set him a difficult task of creating a space with many functions : office, football, relaxing spaces and suitable for a young dog. Mark worked with us from the beginning and was a delight to work with. He was always available for questions and worked closely with the landscapers. He has an incredible knowledge of planting and also created us a plant care guide. We are over the moon with the end result and love spending time in our new garden. Mark comes highly recommended from the whole family, including the dog !
My Wife and I are so happy we chose Mark to design our garden. we specified a contemporary feel , also with an area ideal for entertaining. Mark has excellent plant knowledge and vision. He communicated with us the whole way through the project allowing us to make any changes along the way. It has been wonderful watching it all come together.
We rate Mark Lane Designs 5 out of 5.
My husband and I are absolutely delighted with our garden. Mark paid attention to everything we asked for.
It was a rather large project to undertake as we own a large property situated in four acres of grounds. We asked for many garden rooms and for the garden design to be in keeping with the traditional feel of the building. Mark delivered this perfectly.
Mark’s eye for detail and creativity has created a truly spectacular garden for us to enjoy.
We highly recommend Mark and have passed his details on to all of our friends.
We are so happy with the garden design and planting design schemes that Mark has done for us. His design skills and knowledge of plants is incredible.
Right from the start Mark was so helpful, from the moment we met him we were put at ease by his professionalism and manner. He was always available, either by phone or through site visits and had some amazing ideas. The drawings he provided helped our contractor create the perfect space for us. He even provided 3D renders of how the garden would look later in its life.
We would highly recommend Mark to anyone.
Mark has designed my garden over the past 3 years as and when budget permitted. I agreed with Mark that we would split the design process in to 3 stages. The first stage was the hard landscaping, including re-scultping of the banks of the small lake to create a boardwalk around the edge and plants that suited these conditions. The second stage was the veggie patch, the restoration of an old wooden greenhouse and the design and creation of meandering paths around large flower beds, filled with cottage garden plants, all carefully selected by Mark. The last stage was to re-design the tired looking patio by lifting and re-laying the existing slabs, creating new raised beds to soften the edges and to unify the space with the rest of the garden. It is now the perfect, intimate dining and relaxation space right outisde the back of my house.
I have already recommended Mark to friends and family, and would happily do so again to anyone in need of a great garden designer.
