Our vision We believe gardens are as much about the beauty and combination of individual plants as they are about the quality of the spaces they define.
They are outdoor living spaces, which should be beautiful to the eye and delight the senses but also be fit for purpose and comfortable to sit and move through.
Our designs aim to integrate the client’s brief, the site’s opportunities and constraints and key rules of harmony and composition.
The client’s brief During our initial meeting we will talk about the main purpose of the garden, how it is going to be used and understand your needs and aspirations. We will need an idea of budget so that we can weight some ideas against costs.
Site & context We will carry out a basic survey of your garden, which includes taking measurements, photographs and noting important features of the site and its context. This will help us understand the site’s opportunities and constraints. If the garden is large and complex, particularly in terms of levels, we will advise you to commission a full land survey.
Design Concept We will send you a draft landscaping quotation based on our meeting and site appraisal. If you are happy with the quote and wish to go ahead we will prepare one or two hand sketched design concepts to discuss during our second meeting.
Masterplan Once we agree the design concept, we will develop and refine this and produce a scaled AutoCAD master plan showing the layout of the hard and soft landscape, with suggestions of key materials, design features, plants, textures and colours and a final quotation.
