01 about

My Name is Thomas Bates and I Started 3 Leaves Design in February 2017. The love for designing started way back when I was studying fine art and product design in school. I decided I loved outdoor spaces and chose to study Horticulture at college to extend my knowledge. To add to the design element, I also studied interior design which has given me a wider vision of bringing the inside out and the outside in. I love to design spaces which feel cosy and full of reason. I play a lot on textures with hard landscaping and planting, the use of various tones of green with pockets of colour for interest and garden décor to finish that great space.
My belief is a garden is only as good as it makes you feel. And we all want to feel good!

03 What We Do

Here Is how our Garden Design Service Works;

  1. An enquiry is made and we will get in contact with you to understand exactly what you are looking for. From this we can see whether you need us to come and visit you for a consultation about your garden. 

  2. During the consultation we will discuss what it is you would like to do to your garden, whether its just a small area which needs new ideas or you want a total make over and don't know where to start, we can help. Once ideas have been spoken about and enough information is gathered you can decide whether you would like our services

  3. Once you have decided you would like us to carry out a design service for your garden, we can organise a survey. This is where we will take measurements from your property and look at any existing landscaping you would like to keep.

  4. A brief will be written up to explain what our aims will be with your garden design and to give you an idea of what to expect from us.

  5. A concept will be presented to you and we can talk about any area you like or want to change. From this we can produce a final design.

  6. The final design can include A 2D master plan, Planting plan, 3D Visuals, Lighting Plan and even a Virtual Reality presentation.

  7. Once you have decided on the final Design we can look at finding you the right landscape gardener to carry out the work.
