Our five step process to your perfect garden

Enhancing your outdoor space is not only an investment in the value of your home but in your quality of life – a responsibility we take exceptionally seriously to ensure you have the right plan for the project. Simply contact us to organise a free site visit and consultation to explore your garden’s potential and make your vision come to life.

It would be helpful for us to know: whether your home is in a conservation area; when it was built (Victorian, Georgian, Edwardian, 1930s-70s or contemporary); the size of your outdoor space; whether the garden is shaded or sunny and at what times it catches the sun; and whether you have a specific plan in mind or if you would like us to make suggestions.

If you don’t have set ideas about your outdoor space but just want it to look better, here are some things to think about before our meeting:


Step 1: Visualisation

Imagine your fantasy lifestyle outdoors... Perhaps you’ve been inspired by a film, TV show or magazine? Gather some images to share what you see with your mind’s eye. Consider your needs and expectations - would you like the garden to be somewhere you feast your eyes and laze about, or somewhere to entertain, cook, exercise, and keep the children - and pets- occupied?

Step 2: Sketching the idea

After our visit we provide: 1) A not-to-scale sketch with a design plan for any paving; decking; fencing; installations such as pergolas, garden rooms and sheds; and box planters and plantings (free service) or 2) A scale drawing rendered in two or three dimensions showing all of the above, plus where light and shade will fall and images of materials (fee charged).

Step 3: The building plan

We supply an itemised written quotation and approximate schedule for the works.

Step 4: Considerate gardening

Rest assured that all of our products are sustainably sourced where possible; that we recycle and responsibly dispose of all materials removed from your garden such as brickwork, rubble and old fencing; and that we always wood-chip trees, large shrubs and bushes.

Step 5: Your peace of mind

Terra Firma customers can feel safe in the knowledge that our workmanship is guaranteed, as are products from our suppliers: Jackson’s fencing is guaranteed for 25 years, and there are 10-year guarantees from In Frame garden rooms, Marshall’s paving materials, and Namgrass.
