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.
Survey & analysis 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 two hand sketched concept designs showing the initial ideas for the garden and discuss these with you during our second meeting.
Layout plan Once we agree the concept, we will develop and refine the proposal and produce a scaled Auto CAD layout plan showing the hard and soft landscaping in more detail. This will include suggestions of key materials, features and up to 10 plants, which are selected throughout the design process.
At this stage we can give you a full landscaping quotation for implementing the design.
Visualisations, planting and material details 3D Sketch up models, full planting planting plan and construction details can be provided for an additional charge.
