Garden Design in Norfolk

Balanis Landscape Gardening service

Let Balanis transform your Norfolk garden in to an oasis of beauty and tranquility. Louise Barby, Garden Design Consultant, turned her lifelong passion for gardening into a career in 2010. Louise believes a garden should reflect the character and soul of it’s owners. Every Balanis design is different with a planting scheme handpicked for the customer. Louise takes considerable time and effort to understand her client’s likes, dislikes, passions and inspirations. Scroll down to the bottom of this page for a gallery of recent jobs designed and managed by Louise recently.

Louise works as leading project manager on all Balanis garden designs. Undertaking jobs encompassing all sizes of gardens from small courtyards to rambling estates. From the initial consultation to the final garden handover – Louise will be there throughout. With a corporate background managing large projects for Cable & Wireless and Mercedes – Louise has all the skills required for total project management no matter how big the job may be.

Complete Project Management

A bespoke design aimed at creating a garden that blooms throughout the year, season after season. We work with established local contractors providing all the necessary services including hard landscaping, drainage, carpentry and outdoor electrical work (garden lights etc). Balanis take full responsibility of the entire design process – project managing all aspects.

All aspects of the Garden Design are handled by Louise Barby – your sole point of contact throughout. Louise co-ordinates everything, acting as project manager from start to finish. A garden design often involves third party contractors from builders to electricians and carpenters to tree preservation authorities. Balanis keep a professional eye on all of this – leaving the customer with nothing to do but admire the transformation of their garden. More details on the Garden Design Process here.

Balanis arrange everything

We want you to relax during the process that’s why Balanis take care of everything. From Garden Electrics to Irrigation systems – from Carpentry to Fencing. If it’s part of the design – we take care of it. A bespoke design – just for you. The right plants in the optimum locations. Let Louise Barby – an established garden design consultant – create the garden you have always dreamed of.

Glorious Gardens across North Norfolk

Our customers range from 1 bedroom holiday homes with small courtyard gardens of less than 20 feet square (that’s about 6m x 6m for the metric folk) to customers with over 50 acres including woodland, pasture and formal beds. An example of a large family garden design was this house in between Titchwell and Thornham – over an acre of boring lawn transformed to a garden of beauty and interest.

Don’t think that just because you have a small garden we won’t be interested to have you as a customer, we want you to be proud of your garden, no matter how small. We’d probably have to say “no” to Holkham Hall, Sandringham, or Houghton Estate, but we’d love to give our opinion and share some experiences. Please visit our Garden Projects Gallery for some recent examples of work undertaken by Louise around the North Norfolk coast. 

Landscape Gardening

We cover all aspects of Landscape Gardening. Everything from Soft Landscaping (plants, shrubs etc) to full on Hard Landscaping (patios, decking, arbors, pergolas etc). Remember – with Balanis we manage every aspect of your new garden. All contractors are given daily instructions and follow Louise’s strict guidelines and working practives.

Norfolk Landscape Gardeners Team

Whatever your garden design requirements Balanis is here to help. We have our own full-time staff for all soft landscaping – everything horticultural and organic. For the hard landscaping we work with some of the best contractors in the area. Louise project manages the whole experience – the client deals only with Balanis. With our team of specialist landscapers we can satisfy most structural design requirements including patios, raised beds, steel lawn edging, woven steel planters, decking, fencing and outdoor electrics.

Garden Design Consultant

Professional, personal advice on how best to improve your garden. Louise offers a consultative design service that is hard to find in Norfolk (which is why Balanis normally has a 4-6 month waiting list). More details about Louise and her Garden Consultancy service here (primary catchment area from Burnham Market & Brancaster to Heacham & Hunstanton and inland including the Birchams, Sedgeford, Docking etc)

Complete Garden Makeovers

Somewhere between a full on garden re-design and a simple garden clearance. A garden makeover takes what you have, tidies it up and adds a little twist of something special. Maybe it’s a new patio to replace the old decking, or a fresh compliment of border plants. Balanis offer a one-off garden clearance service and a more thorough garden makeover service in and around North Norfolk. This example from our Portfolio classes as a small courtyard garden makeover. The old decking was slippery and unsafe, the flower beds were neglected and underplanted – perfect for some garden TLC. The result was a courtyard garden re-designed with a family’s needs and budget taken in to consideration. Another HAPPY Hunstanton customer.

Garden Maintenance

Balanis offer a service that goes above and beyond cutting the lawns and weeding the beds. We understand the seasonal activities that must be undertaken to ensure optimal bloom and plant health. The business focus of Balanis is design & consultancy – however – we do occasionally have limited availability for garden maintenance within the North Norfolk (PE36) catchment area.

Working as gardeners in the UK means Balanis have to work whenever they can. This includes hot summers, moderate springs & autumns and freezing cold winters. Balanis work 12 months of the year – whatever the weather. However, there are certain times of the year when it is better to do certain jobs. It is best to get in touch with Louise for a garden design consultation at the earliest convenience. This way, we can ensure the job is completed at the optimal time of the year.
