Most gardens need some kind of hard-standing area perhaps for seating or entertaining, or structural form for garden division and changing levels. Over the years Manor Landscapes have provided many different kinds of solutions involving paving and brickwork schemes. We undertake all kinds of different projects, contemporary, classical, and problem solving. Often they require special features to complete the picture and make them work. So if you have something a little 'out of the ordinary' in mind, please just ask.
We plan our garden designs to ensure that all future service needs for electrics, plumbing etc. are put in right at the beginning of the job so that they can be effectively worked in with any structural works.
Decking can be a very useful feature in a garden. And a practical alternative is wood is synthetic decking. Many people prefer the warmth it gives in preference to stone and paving areas for entertaining spaces. We also use it as a landscaping, structural element to help with split and multi-level areas to make the most practical way of using the spaces. We often use it in conjunction with lighting schemes to create beautiful gardens which can be enjoyed long after the sun has gone down.
We can help you to plan your driveway space to give you the most practical and aesthetically pleasing solutions. Especially with larger spaces, it is important to choose the right materials to create a driveway, which though it may function in part as a car park, is also aesthetically pleasing and presents the house well.
The front of the house needs to present itself well all year round, in terms of the way the planting and hard standing areas appear. We take great care to plan the groundwork properly to ensure that your surfaces are stable, durable and able to deal well with drainage. We are careful to plan works to cause as little disruption as possible whilst the job is in progress.
We can make your garden a comfortable, stylish and wholly practical entertainment space. Wood-fired pizza ovens, integrated gas-fired stoves, fires, and ideal seating can make your garden 'the place to be'.
Water features can add form, drama and interest to your garden. Please have a look through these images to see just some of the ones we have installed over the years. We design them to be in keeping with your garden's style; anything from a simple fountain or bubbling cobbles to a fully stocked pond. As well as creating new features we can rejuvenate your existing pond for you, with our clearing and dredging service.
We build lighting schemes into our garden designs where necessary to help our customers to be able to enjoy them in the evenings as well as during the day. We only use skilled electricians who comply with existing regulations.
We build pergolas and gazebos for many of our clients, but we also have links with some excellent craftsmen who can build bespoke structures to suit any style of garden.
Design plays an important part in the success of small gardens where space is limited. Careful planning and the use of features and focal areas can help to create the illusion of more space.
Please have a look at this stage-by-stage record of a large garden build which shows a typical realisation of the design from blank canvas to beautiful finished garden. We take great care to minimise mess and inconvenience during works, both for our clients and their neighbours.
Plants make gardens, and we take great care in choosing the right plants for our garden designs. We know which plants are most suited to every kind of soil, and all types of light or shaded aspects, and we will work with you to give you the garden which most reflects your own tastes at the same time.
We provide a free initial consultation for all our clients. We will look at the space and talk to you about your requirements and tastes. We take pictures where necessary for reference and then set about the business of logistical and financial planning to ensure that our client achieves their desired garden within their budget.
Many people's idea of a garden is that it should contain: a hard standing area (patio or similar), a lawn, planting, and access A-B for sheds, garages etc. Our aim is to plan for everything you want (including anything on top of the list above) and we will provide your quote fully itemised so you can prioritise according to your budget.
Our planning and design services are configured in several ways depending on the scale of the job...
1. Direct quotation - for simple works i.e. replacement of a patio.
2. For simple gardens which only require a small amount of logistical planning we will produce a simple sketch.
3. For more complex garden planning we will produce landscape drawings and elevations. The charge for these will be discussed with the client.
We ensure that main services e.g. lighting / drainage etc. are put in at the beginning of a project so that even if you are planning your project around a budget split into several stages for the long-term you have everything in place right from the start.
We can provide all the services you require. For more details, read on...

We have great experience in the provision of decked areas in garden spaces. The materials we use are all properly treated, and always from sustainable sources. We can include services for outdoor lighting schemes, water features, outdoor cooking etc. We have experience in multi-level platforms and jetty constructions for lakes and ponds.
We undertake fencing projects for boundaries, screening and ornamentation. We have a broad supplier base for a wide range of styles to suit all kinds of gardens. All materials used are good quality for strong, long-lasting fences. We will always aim to minimise the disruption caused to neighbouring properties during works involving boundaries.
If you fancy something a little different in your garden we can suggest all manner of follies and features for that extra impact. Perhaps you have a whimsical idea that you are not sure how to create?
We will work with you to realise your ideas.
Formal or informal, for traditional or contemporary gardens, we have a huge amount of experience in creating water features for all kinds of gardens. As well as creating new features we can rejuvenate your existing pond for you, with our clearing and dredging service.
We plan each garden individually, according to the client's own tastes. We can make recommendations for the best plants for all aspects and soil types. So whether you are adding to an existing plot or starting completely from scratch, from large lawned gardens to low maintenance container gardens, we can help you to achieve the desired effect.
For brand new lawned gardens, or to re-turf existing lawns, we will give you a beautiful lawn surface to enjoy, and teach you how to keep it looking at its best.
So that you can enjoy your gardens once the daylight hours are over, we can plan your gardens with stunning lighting schemes.
Structures to create shade, shelter, for planting support or simply for impact - we can build you just about anything you need - or know someone who can if we can't!!
