"A fantastic, industrial inspired garden with lots of wonderful ideas that can be recreated at home. Truly inspirational with great use of raw, honest materials, planting and clever details. I look forward to seeing more of David’s show gardens in the future"

Despite my traditional training in Garden Design, I employ a modern approach to ensure that you receive the best possible design for your space. I start the process by creating a 3D visualization of your garden, which not only helps me produce a top-quality design but also enables you to be part of the process from start to finish.
This innovative service has allowed my clients to better understand their space and achieve the garden design of their dreams, regardless of their budget.
The design process begins with an on-site visit and an initial consultation where I listen carefully to your needs and desires. While I strive to create beautiful and eye-catching designs, I always prioritize practicality and your personal preferences.
My ultimate goal is to make you feel at home in your garden. After establishing the design brief, I proceed to draw up the initial designs, and your garden will begin to take shape. Please note that all of my garden designs are completely bespoke to your unique taste and style
Frequently utilized by my clients, this service has been very popular.

So .... Why do you need a Garden Designer ? And how much can it cost ?
Why hire a garden Designer ?
A beautifully designed and well-executed garden always has that "wow" factor and adds value to your property. But it's not just about aesthetics and property value – a garden can bring you pure joy and have a positive impact on your health and well-being, even more so than any indoor space!
Let's face it: landscaping and design is no laughing matter. It demands genuine expertise .......
After your initial enquiry we will arrange to have a chat with you to discuss the project and get a better understanding of your needs. After this we can arrange for an on-site consultation. This will be followed by a written brief and quotation
Once commissioned, we will put you in touch with a Topographical surveyor or if applicable i will carry out a survey of the garden. This plots all existing features, levels, the house outline, boundaries etc, and is used as a base for the design
Based on this consultation we will then put together a fee proposal and a mood board that will consist of a selection of images that reflect the initial concept ideas for your new garden.
Once you have approved the fee and the deposit has been paid a second site visit will be made so reference photographs and measurements can be taken. We will then have everything we need to produce the initial garden designs which will encompass both 2D images and a 3D model for the 3d design garden process.
These initial concepts will be presented to you in person, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and provide us with your feedback. We will then refine the designs to reflect your feedback and send the final designs to you for approval.
Your technical plans can now be produced which will include layouts, planting plans and lighting plans. This will form the basis of a tender so that either myself or your chosen builders can provide accurate costings for labour and materials. The build phase of your garden can now begin.

David is a talented garden designer and visual artist based in Suffolk, offering a comprehensive 3D design service to clients both locally and throughout the UK. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for creating unforgettable outdoor spaces, David specializes in designing gardens that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Growing up in the countryside with parents who shared a deep love of gardening, David was naturally drawn to nature and the outdoors. Combining this love with his passion for design, he pursued a career in architectural visualization and design, gaining 13 years of experience in the field.
After discovering the joys of gardening for himself, David studied for his Garden Design Diploma at Otley College in Suffolk, and continues to undertake short courses to further his knowledge and skills. It was during a stint living in Berlin that he was inspired to create The3DGardener, combining his love of design, 3D visualization, and gardens.
David finds inspiration in the natural world around him, and how it can be blended with man-made structures such as architecture and sculpture. He is constantly on the lookout for new ideas and inspiration in even the most ordinary places. He is passionate about the emotional connection people have with their gardens, as his own garden has become his personal sanctuary and source of strength in life. His ultimate goal is to share this feeling of peace and joy with others through his beautiful garden designs and 3d design garden process.
He comments, “The nature around me wherever I may be is my main source of inspiration, both the natural world itself and how it can be such a rewarding thing to blend with the man-made. Be this architecture or sculpture , i find it fascinating ! I am constantly finding new ideas and inspiration in the most ordinary of places. I am driven by my love of gardens themselves and also what they mean to people. My own garden has become my rock in life, my sanctuary and i would love to share this feeling with others.”
