Covid-19 Update

The arrival of Covid-19 has meant we have never spent so much time at home and in our gardens. Living with social distancing rules, travel restrictions and  even periods quarantine means we are focusing more on our personal spaces and what we can do to improve them so they serve us better in these times.

Sara at No.30 Design Studio can offer a full garden design service following the latest government guidelines, with the safety of her clients at the foremost of her mind, to help them realise their dream gardens


After your intial enquiry, Sara can  arrange a socially distanced initial design consultation and site visit , which will acertain the design requirements and scope of works for the client brief.

Sara can put a quote together outlining the fees for concept design, master plan, planting plan along with additional services that she can offer later in the process

If accepted Sara will arrange for a survey 


Sara will do local surveys personally, maintaining social distancing guidelines

If the garden is further away, or you are self isolating, dimensions can be provided or desktop surveys can be done

For really complicated garden shapes or levels, drone surveys can be done, again, within government guidelines for safe working practices and social distancing

Concept Design

With the client brief and survey information, the design process will be undertaken by Sara, working from home

The concept design will be emailed over to you in the form of photo realistic images like the one at the top of the page, along with an explanation of the design rational.

Sara feels that this is the best way to communicate the look and feel of the garden, and following any feedback or amendments on the design a masterplan and planting plan will be produced


The masterplan is  a scale drawing of the garden, showing key trees, shrubs, features, and material finishes and any design notes necessary.

This will be emailed over to you in a pdf format, and can be sent to contractors if required

Sara will then produce planting plans for all areas to be planted. Again to scale, they will detail all plants, positions and quantities

No.30 Design Studio works in conjunction with award winning landscaping company Big Fish Landscapes to bring gardens to life.
