Welcome to The Art Of Design
  • The Garden Design process.

    At Modular we believe garden design is the most exciting of all the design disciplines, but then we would say that! As well as a beautifully designed garden being an inviting and practical space it’s increasingly viewed as a haven to immerse ourselves in; somewhere to escape the stresses of everyday life and connect with the natural world. The stats prove it can also significantly add value to your property so investing in it is a win-win.

    The bigger picture.

    A garden should work on many levels. Developing a great garden is rewarding for some, but frustrating for others. Perhaps you’ve lived with the same outdoor space for years yet are still way off realising your dream garden or have recently bought a property with a garden or roof terrace and just don’t know where to start?

    Setting off on the right track with a vision and plan is critical to its success. Good design marries the clients brief (style/function), with the build and planting budget to create a space that is greater than the sum of its parts.

    God is in the details.

    The Architect Mies van der Rohe famously said this and at Modular we agree. The technical design stage before the build captures all the key design details such as levels, steps, surfaces, boundaries etc. with pinpoint accuracy to ensure a slick build and a high-end finish on site. We also offer full lighting and furniture packages to make the most form the space 24/7 and irrigation installation to ensure healthy plant growth.

    Right plant right place.

    Plants breathe the life into a garden. In the UK, they inspire us to celebrate all four seasons and are an essential resource for wildlife. Trees, large shrubs, hedging and clipped shapes provide the year-round structure so that perennials and bulbs can create impact at key times of the year with their colours and textures.  Choosing the right plants for the right place (aspect, soil etc.) so they thrive and combine beautifully together is where the artistry of great garden design comes into own.

    At Modular we have wealth of experience and expertise offering the full range of design, construction, and planting services and guide our clients through every step of the process. We only have one aim, to create an outdoor space that exceeds your expectations.
