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 might advise you to commission a detailed land survey.
Design Concept We will prepare one or two hand sketched design concepts to discuss during our second meeting. If you require design and build, we might give you a draft landscaping quotation at this stage based on our meeting and site appraisal.
Masterplan Once we agree the concept, we will develop and refine proposal and produce a scaled Auto CAD master plan showing the layout of the hard and soft landscape. This will include some suggestions of key materials, features and plants together with a final quotation.
Visualisations, planting and material details If you require 3D Sketch up models, planting plans and full materials specifications these can be provided separately.
