Our garden design projects

Here at Llevelo, we pride ourselves on our flexibility. We want to deliver a garden which reflects you and not simply thumb print our taste onto you.
Get in touch
We have worked on an array of styles and designs from a Medieval Garden to a Contemporary landscape. But what is it about each that defines them into a specific category? As with all clever design, there is rarely one defining feature but, more often, a series of small details that, together, create a lasting impression.
A Family Space
This is a fabulously fun garden on Mersea, near Colchester. The brief was simple: the client wanted something that didn’t look like his friends' gardens!

A Georgian Garden
Set in 14 acres of land, this beautiful one acre walled garden near Colchester was an original feature to a Georgian property. There was an existing swimming pool at one end and old fruit trees along the walls but, other than this and some low hedging, the garden was a blank canvas.

A Minimalist Space
This garden in Hockley, Essex, belonged to a young family who wanted a minimalist look to complement their home and reduce the presence of their new summer house.

Dealing with Level Changes
This large garden in Roydon, Essex, presented a challenge: a significant level change with a difference of 3200mm from the house to the rear boundary, and the ground was heavy clay.

The Awkward Shaped Plot
This corner plot was originally a gate keeper's lodge and was later sold off from the main dwelling and the lodge extended. Whilst the views from the building were of lush fields and rolling hills, the dimensions of the garden were uncomfortable and didn't lend themselves to a natural layout.

The Need for Privacy
This modern farmhouse near Colchester had been built centrally to the plot of land and the 'garden' was primarily lawn and a few trees but lacked structure and flow.

Sub-dividing a Space
The brief was for a garden to ‘potter and perch’ in. The client said that they had, on several occasions, stood in the centre of the garden at a total loss with how to create shape and add different areas into the garden.

A Social Garden
This garden in Chattisham near Ipswich is attached to a guest house. The plan was to use the garden when friends came to visit, so there needed to be a seamless internal/external connection.

Our services

Full Service Garden Design and fulfilment

For an end to end service, our garden design and project oversight options deliver a clear step by step plan and then co-ordination of the garden build.

Planting Plans

Our planting plans can be selected as a stand alone design service. We still put you at the centre of the design but work within the predefined borders to refresh the garden.

Planning Application

We are experienced in liaising with local authorities and delivering the details and specifications required. This service can be used either in conjunction with our design services or as a stand alone feature as required.

Commercial Garden Design

We know that time and value are key when it comes to commercial projects. That's why we focus on short lead times and value add when working with developers to increase saleability and kerb appeal.


Where to Look for Garden Inspiration

Without a doubt, one of our favourite ways of keeping up with what other gardeners and designers are doing is to go and visit them. Here are some of the many gardens to go and see.
