The Design process can generally be broken down into three stages.
The following are all available individually or as part of our design package:
Garden Design Stage 1: Site Layout Plan
Consultation/Site visit - To establish clients brief & design consultation.
The process starts with you. This meeting is an opportunity for us to get to know how the garden will be used, any likes or dislikes and to discuss ideas which will form the basis of the design.
Site Survey/Assessment - Physical and biological survey will provide us with a detailed and accurate scaled layout plan of the existing landscape.
Outline Design - Concept drawing presented in our office prior to completing the design explaining the concept and overall feel for the garden and showing the areas of hard landscaping, planting, and features.
Final site layout plan - Working drawings to scale including elevations and cross sections.
This is the final layout plan for the garden that will show the definitive position of the main features.
Quantities and specifications - Construction specifications and quantities.
A specification document outlining the precise work to be undertaken including the construction methods and materials to be used.
Garden Design Stage 2: Planting Plan
Planting Plans - Once the design is approved, we will draw up specific planting plans.
A planting scheme will be drawn up to suit the growing conditions of your garden, complement the design, and create the overall ambiance for the project.
Garden Design Stage 3: Tender Documents
Tender Documents - to enable pricing by several contractors.
Budget - We can produce cost estimates at various stages to facilitate budget planning.
Site/contract supervision - Complete project management, where we oversee the project from start to finish on your behalf and ensure that your garden is delivered exactly as planned.
There is a small charge for the initial meeting, and this is discounted against the design fees, these design fees are discounted against the landscape works.
Just pick up the phone and call us and let our team arrange your consultation.
You are just one step away from having the garden of your dreams.
