New Website Offers Garden Designs by Derek Fell for Homweowners/ Business Owners to Install

Derek Fell is a world renown garden writer, photographer and designer. He has recently launched a professional garden design service to help homeowners gain access to professional garden designs without the high price tags that usually come with it.

Pipersville, PA, August 23, 2007 --( Derek Fell, author of more than 60 garden books and garden calendars, has a new website offering garden design services by e-mail to homeowners, following recent polls that show homeowners want professional garden designs at reasonable cost to install themselves.

Fell is the author of best selling garden design books such as 550 Home Landscaping Ideas (Simon and Schuster) and The Encyclopedia of Garden Design (Firefly Books) and has produced award winning garden designs. Notable among these are a water garden at his home, Cedaridge Farm, Bucks County, Pennsylvania; also a vegetable garden for the White House during the Ford Administration; and a water garden at historic Magnolia Plantation, South Carolina.

Fell’s Website features examples of his garden designs, and a list of popular themes, including shade gardens, sunny perennial gardens, cutting gardens, water features, herb gardens, and cottage gardens. Explaining the reason for his website Fell says that many homeowners today realize that a beautiful garden space- especially ‘curb appeal’ can add substantially to the value of a home, but they are put off by the prospect of paying fees of $35,000.00 and more, charged by landscape professionals for basic garden designs.

A simple front yard, side yard or backyard design can cost as little as $500.00 for a site plan and plant list, allowing the homeowner to implement the design by planting it and installing garden features, such as gazebos, arbors, benches and fences readily available from garden supply outlets.

To start the process of a Derek Fell Garden Design, homeowners are asked to visit, fill out a questionnaire, stating the dimensions of the site and other essential criteria. This is submitted by e-mail along with photographs of the site. From the information provided online Fell is able to provide an estimate based on the complexity of the design and devise a garden design tailored for each homesite. Water features are a specialty but any kind of design- whether formal or informal, in sun or shade, can be provided at a reasonable cost.
