Our work

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.
We all need a little inspiration at times so here's a look at what feeds our passion for gardens, architecture and nature.
A Garden with a View
Embracing a view is a challenge we relish in. Ensuring the garden is beatiful in its own right without competing with the view is crucial to a successful design. In the case of this large garden in Althorne, Essex, the design called for a simplified layout to help acheive that. Fantastic views of the esturary […]

A Modern garden with a Swimming Pool
Getting started This garden was very much a blank canvas when we first saw it. Now it's transformed into a modern garden with a swimming pool. An outdoor kitchen and pergola make this garden a wonderful space to enjoy throughout the day and into the evening. The house was positioned to the rear of the […]

The Country Garden
This large garden set in the heart of rural Essex was a blank canvas when the client purchased it. He quickly set about installing a patio but poor workmanship meant that, five years on, the paving slabs were loose, the joints needed repointing, the decking was rotten and dangerous, the self binding gravel was covered […]

A Kitchen Garden
When we first visited this garden, it was an unused area which was tired and joyless. The client wanted to do 'something' and had an idea about a greenhouse. We explored the options including a party garden and a family space but eventually came back to the greenhouse being the focal point. This section of […]

A Small Urban Space
This small garden in Colchester, Essex had measured just 10m x 10m (33' x 33') and was heavily overlooked to the rear. The brief was for a contemporary finish which they could entertain friends and family in. The house was raised above the garden by approximately 1.5m (6') so the lack of privacy was especially […]

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!

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.

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.

The Narrow Garden
This unique space in the heart of Chelmsford, Essex measured an incredible 69m (226') in length by less than 14m (45') in width. Furthermore, the husband and wife had quite different tastes. He was looking for the more masculine presence of crisp lines and strong geometric shapes. She was keen on a softer approach with […]

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.
Read More
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.
Read More
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.
Read More
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.

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.
