An initial visit to your site is the first step in the design process. This enables us to familiarise ourselves with the site and discuss, in broad terms, your requirements and style.
Following our initial consultation, we will send you a proposal outlining what we intend to include in your design in terms of the garden’s layout and hard landscaping choices. At this stage, we will also advise you of the fee for the design process that follows:
Upon receipt of your signed proposal we will arrange to fully survey your site for all the main requirements of soil, aspect, levels and dimensions.
Shortly after the completion of the survey we will produce a sketch design detailing our proposed layout for your garden based on information you have given us and our creative input.
Following discussion of the Sketch Plan we will proceed to producing the necessary plans for the implementation of your garden. You will receive a presentation plan usually at a scale of 1:20, 50 or 100 and on A1 or A2 sized paper. The presentation plan will give you the layout of your garden and will detail the materials that will be used for construction. We will also provide lay-out plans, and where required, construction drawings necessary for any contractor to build your garden.
Your presentation plan will detail some of the feature plants, and suggest suitable types of planting to be included in the garden, however, a comprehensive planting plan is available as a separate plan for your garden. We can also procure high quality plants for you and arrange to have them planted.
