Over the past 20-30 years there has been a radical diversification in garden design. Gardens now range from traditional to cutting-edge contemporary; planting may be simple and minimalist or wild and naturalistic. Many different styles coexist.
At 3G we cut through the jargon and the makeover media gloss to design gardens for individual clients.
