Galley Design is a garden & landscape design practice providing a comprehensive range of services for the private client, architect and property developer.
Our aim is to transform an unloved space with potential into something of beauty through a collaborative process with our clients; to make an unused space pull its weight and to provide an outdoor space its owners actively seek-out; to relax and unwind in.
Not everyone is a budding or compulsive gardener, nor do they have endless time on their hands; therefore the solutions will reflect the owners’ maintenance potential; somewhere between tweaking here and there and more hands-on solutions for those dedicated few.
Believing that gardens should find their own balance in times of drought without the need for excessive hosepipe therapy is a special area of interest; the goal being to use a palette of plants whose survival instincts and drought tolerance keeps your garden flourishing when you wish to use and enjoy it - during the hotter spells. This may not always remove the need for additional watering so we can design-in irrigation schemes as a fall-back for those very dry periods.
We also believe that gardens should continue being of service as night falls - both in terms of atmosphere and recreational spaces. They should provide drama and interest as they fade into the darkness, this we achieve through the use of creative lighting solutions.
