We have a reputation for design and horticultural expertise and enjoy working closely with clients, encouraging an open exchange of information, with a view to designing their perfect garden.
After contacting us we arrange an initial visit to meet you, see the space, show our portfolio, discuss budget and formulate a design brief. The design brief is based on your ideas and requirements, and my initial design concept. It has two functions: Firstly a discussion document, and then a design guideline. Based on this agreed brief we are able to estimate for the first stage of design work.
The site survey
Before any design work can start an accurate survey of the area is needed to produce a working drawing. this will show the house, boundaries, existing features, levels, soil ph, aspect, prevailing winds etc.
Initial ideas – A very helpful early meeting to discuss initial design concept, plants, materials etc.
The masterplan – A clear to scale colour drawing of the over all garden design.
Perspective Drawing – A 3d impression of what you will see.
Mood board – Images of plants and features along with material and colour samples.
Planting plan & construction drawings (if required)
The combination of masterplan, moodboard, perspective drawing(s) and outline costing’s allows us to present the garden design to you in a clear way. We talk through all aspects of the design, both aesthetic and practical and discuss how to take the project into the next stage.
A cost break down of the garden with a total figure at the end. this enables you to see exactly where your money goes and provides an opportunity to have the garden built in phases.
Our construction teams comprise of experienced gardeners, builders and craftsmen. Every design is implemented with care and thought using high quality materials and the very best working methods. Every project is overseen by the designer from start to finish.
NB: If you decide to use your own construction team to build your garden we offer a project management service to oversee the project.
Our plants are of the highest quality, hand sourced from specialist nurseries, selected to thrive in their environment. Planting creates the garden, breathing life and colour into the design.
We offer a garden management service to suit the clients needs. This can range from a weekly visit, to a written maintenance programme for the client or their gardener to follow.
