THE DESIGN PROCESS

It's difficult to know what's involved unless you have had your garden designed before, so we have detailed the various stages below.

Consultation

Lucy will visit you to talk through your requirements and view the space.  This will be followed by a written brief and quotation

Survey

Once commissioned, we will put you in touch with a Topographical surveyor who will carry out a full survey of the garden.  This plots all existing features, levels, the house outline, boundaries etc, and is used as a base for the design

Concept Design

An initial design scheme is then presented for discussion and further development.  This will show the general layout of the garden, eg. entertaining areas, lawns, planted zones etc. It will also include moodboard images.

Masterplan

The initial concept will be developed into a detailed proposal.  This will show all levels, type of material, lighting (if requested) and can ultimately be used for the garden construction.  Details on features such as pergolas and water features will also be included if part of the scheme.  Simple or hyper realistic 3D visuals can be provided at an extra cost.

Tendering

You may have contractors in place or we can put you in touch with landscapers we work with regularly.  The masterplan and notes are passed onto the contractors to submit their quotations.

(Please note - we have no control over contractors; they run separate businesses and may have long waiting lists before they can consider your build)

Planting Plan

While the contractors are producing quotations for the build, we work on the planting design.  This identifies each plant and its eventual spread, the plant name, number and pot size.

Construction

It's now time to make the design a reality!  The chosen landscape team will begin work on site. 

If you would like us to provide project management please make us aware and this will be priced separately.

Plant Sourcing

We have developed extensive contacts in the horticultural industry and are able to source quality plants and specimen trees at competitive rates.  Planting makes a huge difference and we would be delighted to discuss this with you

Maintenance

We can provide a maintenance plan if required.  This will be priced separately and will include guidance on tasks to carry out through the year to maximise the success of your new garden.
