Garden Infrastructure Planning - 2018
We had Anthony over to help us with an initial consultation ahead of our building extension works. We wanted his advice regarding infrastructure planning for the garden spaces immediate to our extension - this meant we could not only plan our budgets for the landscaping works in advance but we could also discuss efficiency gains to be had with Anthony by using trades, access and materials from the building works to facilitate some of the landscaping at the same time. We were also able to use much of Anthony’s knowledge allowing our architects and builders to adjust their plans for drainage, irrigation, lighting, power and hardscaping. Needless to say, we will be using Anthony to design our garden once we can point a new budget to it; he communicates well, is trustworthy, knowledgable and consistently over delivers.

Rural Cottage Modernisation - 2018
Working with Anthony has been a pleasure and very easy from start to finish. His non-pushy attitude is refreshing and he took the time to listen to our ideas before coming up with a design for our front and back gardens. The designs met with our wants/needs and we will be undertaking the work over the next 12 months calling on Anthony’s help and advice along the way.

New Build Oak Framed Country Property - 2017
Although having many landscape designers in our local area, we chose Anthony Arnold “Emerging Landscape” because of his ability to listen and convert conversation and ideas into reality. From our first point of contact Emerging Landscape have approached the work in a professional manner, with creativity in design, sensitivity to the requirements of the area and an eye for detail and quality. The children are excited to see the hidden areas develop and we can’t wait to see the planting complete. Thank you for all your hard work and the out of working hours visits in the evening which suited our schedule.

Walled Garden in a Wooded Vale - 2017
Anthony provided a refreshing perspective to a garden we have known for many years. He had a difficult brief encompassing a certain amount of formality whilst retaining the natural character. He grasped this and we were delighted with his presentation

Sloping Rear Garden - Post House Extension - 2018
We are planning an extension to our property which will require the garden to be redesigned and so decided to use Anthony to help us with that. Anthony spent time with us both talking through what we want and need from our garden. It was really helpful to do this as it encouraged us to step back and think about it in a way that we would not have done on our own. Anthony was easy to talk to and work with and we felt he really listened to us. Following a detailed survey, Anthony presented us with a concept drawing for discussion. We spent over an hour with him talking it through and understanding the design which was thorough and well thought through, incorporating our needs/ desires for the garden. We were really pleased with what Anthony designed for us, but there were areas we challenged and we really appreciated Anthony's collaborative and open minded approach in talking these through as opposed to being completely wedded to what he has designed. It really felt like a two way approach. We would happily recommend Anthony's skill and services.

Large Terraced Rear Garden - 2019
Working with Anthony was a pleasure from start to finish; Anthony's background in project managing means that he is entirely efficient and reliable, and sticks to deadlines and budgets. Most importantly, he has a passion and flair for creating beautiful outdoor spaces; he listened to us and created a design that is stunning and has exceeded all our expectations. It will transform the way we use our garden with our family and friends for many years to come. We wholeheartedly recommend Emerging Landscape Design.

Garden Design Tunbridge Wells 2019
I met Anthony via a local networking group and was inspired by his passion for gardens. Anthony was so easy to speak to and I was able to discuss my ideas and Anthony quickly understood my needs asking useful questions and giving me things to think about that will make my outdoor space really work for me. The design he came up with was AMAZING! Even better than anything I could have thought of giving me usable space that will really work for me. I am so pleased. He was even suggested the use of different materials to enable me to have different budget options. BRILLIANT! Thank you Anthony!"
Garden Design Forest Row, West Sussex 2019
"After 20+ years of living in the same house which had undergone numerous changes over the years, the garden was due a ‘makeover’ it had served us well as a family garden but our needs had changed (along with the ability to manage it) therefore time to look for an ‘expert’… Anthony Arnold of Emerging Landscapes stood out from others with the time he took to listen and understand our needs, wishes and not least, budget constraints. His approach is collaborative, very important as we wished to retain a few existing features which he needed to incorporate in the design. He explained and involved us in the design process along the way, from detailed site survey (we have a terraced garden, so not an easy task) concept drawing to final plan. He is innovative and creative and his desire to create a beautiful space that answers our needs and we can enjoy for many more years with minimum maintenance was very apparent. Our enthusiasm for the garden has been re-ignited."
