When undertaking landscaping work in Hove and the surrounding areas, our garden designers often find that privacy is a major concern. As experienced landscape gardeners, we are skilled in providing a range of effective solutions which maximise garden privacy. From clever hard landscaping features to carefully selected plant life, we find the perfect option for your space. No matter your needs, out team of patio designers and landscapers ensure you get the most from your garden.

There are many ways we can add privacy to an outdoor space. Whether you want to shield your garden from view of the neighbours, or from passers-by, we can install various features which provide effective results in Hove. This includes:

Privacy Planting

Clever soft landscaping, such as privacy planting, is a great way to shield your garden while maintaining a natural look. By strategically planting evergreens, such as privet hedges and Italian cypress trees, our landscape gardeners create year-round screening which is easy to maintain.

Privacy planting is also useful around patios and decking. There are a variety of plants which are suitable for this purpose, including bamboo. As skilled patio designers we can incorporate plant borders and screens into plans for maximum effect.

Layered Planting

For larger gardens in Hove, a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees, perennials and shrubs creates an aesthetically pleasing, natural design. The variety of depth, colour and texture offers sufficient privacy as well as beautiful style.

Fences & Walls

Providing a range of hard landscaping services, we are adept at building and installing all types of garden walls and fencing. With extensive woodwork skills, our garden designers supply picket, trellis and panel fencing, along with any other style you require. Different designs provide varying levels of privacy, meaning there is an ideal solution for every space.

With years of experience, our landscape gardeners advise on the best option for individual requirements in Hove, Worthing and the surrounding areas.

Water Features

Although water features won’t offer any visual privacy, the ambient noise of fountains, water bowls and similar additions help make conversations more private by masking speech. Dominic and our garden designers advise on suitable options for your space, creating effective garden layouts.


A great addition to many outdoor spaces, pergolas offer privacy from all angles. This makes them especially popular where neighbouring properties overlook the garden. Our patio designers can include pergolas in hard landscaping plans. They are available in a range of styles to suit your tastes and requirements.

Dom and his team were simply fantastic. We started off with Phase 1 being faced with a patch of mud in our new build at Bolnore Village and he prepared and laid a Brazilian Black Slate patio with a temporary grass lawn. Then Phase 2 was to complete our vision of raised beds with artificial lawn and a water feature with lights and a remote control. The final work was exactly how I imagined BRILLIANT. Can’t recommend Dom enough. Thank You.

Our garden was a complete tip and Dominic designed and landscaped it to something which could feature in a magazine, it gorgeous and fitted our brief exactly. The team were professional, very tidy and always smiling which was lovely. The quality of the work was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Redesign Of garden
Customer In Pulborough

The project involved taking a sloping garden and creating something that was aesthetically pleasing but practical. We had some ideas, which Dom combined with his creative flair to create our ideal garden space using a beach theme. The computer visual provided was a useful starting point. The work involved a great deal of ground preparation and we are now left with a gorgeous space with an attractive patio/decking area bordered by stones, lollipop trees, artificial lawn, combined with a water feature and sensational lighting. I would recommend Dom and his team without hesitation: Fantastic!

Level up sloped garden, lay patio, artificial grass, rework deck staircase, concrete base for bike shed
Customer in Brighton

Dominic originally came to look at our garden and advised us of the best way to get what we wanted. We have a small unusual shaped garden and Dominic was clear in telling us that there would be wastage with the artificial grass. Dominic was prompt in giving us a price, and arranged a start date that was suitable and quick for us. Darren and the team of employees that arrived were very friendly, efficient and precise. They were hardworking, quick to come up with solutions if problems occurred and kept us informed each step of the way. We love our new outdoor space and recommend highly!

Old garden ripped out, fencing replaced, decking replaced and artificial grass laid
Customer in Crawley

From the first meeting Dominic was helpful, friendly and gave me good advice. His team were all really lovely and polite and worked hard to make sure the garden I envisaged became a reality. The work came in under the estimate and although Dominic could have charged me as quoted, he did not. That is a real credit to his honesty and integrity. I had a vast amount of patio laid and it could easily have been very bland but the careful choices of grout, fencing, mixed size slabs, pebbles, brickwork and sensitive planting lifts it to a fresh and contemporary outdoor space. It is perfect for us!

Customer in Hassocks

Dominic and the guys demolished the old timber decking, provided temporary access, obtained, a structural design for the new decking and proceeded with the build to completion. All materials were delivered on time and various trades were employed and managed without issue. We are delighted with the end product and love the aesthetics of the revised/enhanced deck.
