The design process starts with an initial visit to meet you and get a full understanding of your aspirations and needs for the garden, as well as getting a feel for the existing space. A brief is subsequently produced along with a fee proposal for the design work
An accurate survey of the existing garden is required before any design work can take place. This will be done by the team or a land surveyor if the site is larger or more complex. This establishes the boundaries, existing vegetation, features and levels all relative to the house.
Two concept plans are produced with supporting visuals, allowing you the opportunity to see two versions of how the garden could be laid out. It acts as a discussion document allowing us to present ideas and talk through any changes you wish to make
Produced after the concept design has been agreed, these drawings include all the information the contractor will use to cost and build the garden. This includes detailed drawings such as masterplan, layout plan, specific garden features, dimensions, construction drawings and lighting plans
The Planting Plan shows the location and spacing of all the plants, both new and existing, in the design. The accompanying Plant Schedule lists the plant names, sizes and quantities and is used for costing, ordering and setting out the plants
The tender package is then put together for contractors to quote. We can recommend a range of trusted contractors who can bring the designs to life or you are welcome to use a contractor of your choosing.
