We see the garden as an extension to the indoor spaces. We hold dear that design decisions are functional and match needs and style of the customer. We strive to always create a harmonious ensemble which considers the architecture of the buildings and the surroundings of the area.
The main steps to comprehensive landscape design are visit to the site, sketch design and execute plan.
VISIT TO THE SITE AND GARDEN CONSULTING
During the visit to the site we create a shared vision of the upcoming changes and we define together the extent of the area that will be designed. We discuss about the execution and its costs. After the visit, you get an offer for the landscape designing.
If you do not need a landscape design, garden consulting is often a sufficient option.
Garden consulting can also be considered when you want advice for example how to place buildings to the plot, earth moving works and the structures of the garden.
Sketch design will give you an idea of the planned functions, their sizes and shapes, vegetation and varied materials and garden lightning. Sketch design is drawn in scale and it might be enough for a customer that wants to build their garden themselves.
Execute plan is drawn up based on approved sketch design. It includes a list of all the materials with their measurements, colors and quantities and a perfect list of plants. Contract calculation is easy on the base of it and the contract offer is as accurate as possible.
The drawing always includes the measurements and heights needed and work instructions. If needed the plan also includes detailed images of different structures.

”I consider myself as a problem solver.
Landscape designing consists of combining creativity and technical possibilities to a functioning entity.
It is important to me to listen to the customer and to get to build a landscape design that has a joined vision. I am not scared of even the most challenging sites because I can count on my strong craftsmanship. Every garden is full of possibilities!”
The first drawings Vivi made at GardenLiving already in 2017.
” I am a landscape designer with an innovative and positive attitude and top professional in customer service.
It is pleasant to work with me. I have a great passion for designing and gardening. I love plants and the nature.
The best in my work is, when I can bring a piece of nature to someone’s garden and see the result of it - and of course, when the customer is content and enjoys his garden.”
