Garden Design

Initial Consultation

An initial consultation/meeting provides an opportunity to discuss your requirements; colour schemes, styles, tastes and budget. Following this meeting we will send you a formal design quotation. This will include a written client brief for the design of your new garden which will set out the scope of the project.

Site Survey

The first stage of any garden design is the site survey which is carried out to establish:

  • The exact boundaries of the site and the garden dimensions;
  • Any level changes in the gardenĀ  that need to be incorporated into the design;
  • The garden orientations;
  • Soil type;
  • To make note of any existing features.

The site survey provides the information required to design and produce an accurate scaled drawing of your garden.

Concept Plan

The information gathered during both the initial meeting and the site survey is used to create a concept plan. This takes into consideration your gardens unique aspect and location.

We will visit you again to present preliminary drawings and supporting materials and discuss the proposed design to ensure it meets with your approval.

Master Plan

Once the concept plan has been agreed, a detailed plan of your garden will be made. This is a scaled drawing clearly outlining the design scheme.

Planting Plan

We also produce a full planting plan of the garden either for you to plant yourself, or if you prefer, for us to source, select and plant for you.

Construction Drawings / Layout Plan

Once the garden design is approved, we will put together the technical drawings, building specification and other tender documents in order to source accurate quotations from suitable contractors.

Garden Maintenance Schedule

Not every garden owner is a knowledgeable gardener and the prospect of being left in charge of a new garden can be daunting. We can help by providing a maintenance schedule setting out what needs to be done and when.
