CONSULTATION & BRIEF
The journey to a beautiful garden follows a clear and simple path once we have met you and visited the site:
We begin with a detailed assessment of the site, a walk around and in-depth consultation to gain a clear understanding of what our clients want to be achieved. From this we establish a clear Design Brief which forms the foundation to every design.
For any quality garden design it is essential for us to know the lay of the land so it is quite usual for us to commission a topographical land survey from which to base all our drawings. For very small simple projects we may carry out the survey ‘in house’.
We present our ideas in a combination of CAD plans, sketches and mood images. Through several discussions with the clients we arrive at a Masterplan, which forms the basis of all subsequent detailed work and planting design.
DETAILING & PLANTING DESIGN
In order for the Masterplan to become reality we need to produce details of both construction and planting.
We include Specifications and a Bill of Quantities for our landscapers and also carry out a tender process when required.This is also the stage where the project is costed in detail.
Planting plans and images are all presented prior to sourcing and procurement.
We take great pride in all our gardens and want them to be the best they can be. In order for a project to run smoothly we make regular visits to site during the build to monitor what has been commissioned and advise the contractor along the way.
A new garden begins its life when the contractors leave, so we like to continue to visit on a regular basis for the following year to see how it grows and often advise on maintenance to ensure the garden keeps its style.
