Melanie Driver Build

It’s a different set of skills to creatively and accurately work with the designer to create unique and beautiful environments whilst caring for existing features.

Before he starts digging we will have agreed the costs and how long the work will take.

Melanie can manage the whole project until completion. Liaising with other professionals such as lighting specialists to ensure the garden is finished to the best possible standards. Right down to the selection and positioning of individual plants.

After the garden has been finished, Melanie is available to advise on after-care and may re-visit to see how the garden is maturing.

Pictured here is Stuart, one of our trusted and professionally trained landscapers. If you call him a builder he’ll get upset!
