My Garden Design is a user friendly online platform that allows landscapers to offer garden design services under their own branding. In a nutshell, the landscaper uploads the client brief, “before” pictures and site survey details to the My Garden Design website. Clever programming has created an online garden design questionnaire which breaks the client brief down into a series of yes/no answers. When all information has been gathered, qualified garden designers will set to work to turn the information into a beautiful concept plan. The completed garden design will carry the landscaper’s own logo and contact details. And all at trade prices.
Now that I’ve got your interest, let me introduce myself. My name is Angela Lambert, (aka @Ladylawn) I spent many years working in the marketing department at Harrowden Turf but now work independently, helping landscaping related businesses to get more work.
One such business is My Garden Design. It’s the brain child of Paul Baker (Holland Landscapes). Together with Paul’s amazing website developer, we launched the business back in August 2020 and the website has been buzzing ever since. It occurred to me only this morning that I’ve been very remiss in not telling my colleagues on Landscape Juice about the site and so here I am, hoping to make amends.
So what‘s the story behind My Garden Design?
Paul actually had the idea for an online garden design service for landscapers a few years ago now – but you know what landscaping is like – he just didn’t have time to cross the t’s, dot the I’s and get the thing up and running until his “normal” work was stopped by COVID.
The aim of the business is to save you, the landscaper, time. To cut down on the number of pre-project site visits and give you an extra income stream.
Designs are priced for the trade and you can get an instant quote simply by typing in the dimensions of the garden. Straight away you’ll see the cost of the design and a recommended retail price which should cover the cost of site visits and give you a profit margin.
How does My Garden Design work?
The website is easy to use – it works from a PC, tablet, or smartphone, so you can upload information while you are onsite.
You, the landscaper, meet with your client and gather all of the information needed to create their perfect garden design. The site measurements, survey details and images of the plot and its surrounding area all get uploaded onto a project on the My Garden Design website.
There’s a comprehensive questionnaire to help you build the client brief and a whole host of free tools to make it easier for you to sell the idea of garden design to your clients.
You can build a project profile online for free – you only need to pay once you’re ready for the design to be created.
Each design is created by professional garden designers and double-checked by Paul Baker. Paul is an experienced landscaper and will instantly spot whether or not a design can be brought to life within the client’s build budget. The completed design will be emailed to you in around 3-4 weeks and will show only your company logo and contact details.
To access all of the tools offered on the MGD website, all you need to do is register online as a trade customer. There’s nothing to pay until you are ready to hit the ‘buy’ button. And you certainly won't be bombarded with sales calls or spam emails - we haven't got the time or the inclination to do all that!
Honestly – the best way to understand what My Garden Design has to offer is to go onto the website and take a look around.
