We offer a bespoke landscape architectural design service for residential clients. Denim Hens can assist you as little or as much as you would like, from a one hour on-site consultation for verbal advice and general notes on the housing of your chickens right through to a full service incorporating landscape architectural design and construction plans for your entire garden. We also provide a design mentor service, where a landscape architect will work directly with a client on both design and initial construction of a garden, in order to jointly work through the 'bones' of a spatial layout and garden design, and in this to provide the client with the basic knowledge to further develop their garden through time.
We specialise in the development of beautiful, functional and sustainable spaces with a holistic approach which ensures a particular aim does not preclude other potential uses.
We work with the client to develop a brief with regard to the elements needed, and look to ensure that as these are provided, the quality of the garden as a whole is improved. We can resolve conflicting demands upon space using experience, innovation and the holistic landscape architectural approach.
Particular strengths of Denim Hens are :
