If you need more than just
plants we'll compile a free design brief which will help to clarify the ideas right from the start.
Full service design process
We offer a fully comprehensive design package to
ensure each garden is carefully planned, paying attention to the specific
demands of each client.
• Free Design Consultation (*dependent on area)
• Site survey
• Coloured concept plan and full specifications
• Planting plan
• Full project management start to finish
free* design consultation
full design and build option is requested, the first stage is the design
brief which sets out the main proposals together with a confirmation of our
costs. We can also give an approximate cost for the construction of the
garden, although it is for the individual contractors to finalise the
stage is the site survey (unless one has been carried out before) which
allows us to draw up an accurate scaled layout plan. The site survey
is carried out to establish all the necessary measurements. Digital
photos of the garden can be taken for reference and a soil test may be
carried out to determine what character the soil has - this will influence
the types of plants that can be used.
information gathered during the survey will be coupled with the design ideas
and clients wishes and desires and translated into a scaled, coloured base
plan. All the main features and ideas are clearly shown. The client
keeps a colour copy of all design work drawn up. Plant lists can be
drawn up during this stage, planting plans created where required and
costings calculated for the construction stage. The concept design shows the
main ideas and types of planting, together with materials.
concept design consists of the following:
Fully scaled, coloured 2D plan
Full written specifications
4) Material samples
from a concept design
Perspective view of a garden
Along with the 2D plan, we also show the side elevation to show levels and a
perspective view through the garden to give a visual artists impression of
how the garden will look at eye level. A full written specification is
also provided to give the contractors clear instructions as to the layout
and building of the garden. The concept plan is the simplest
way of showing how the space in the garden is best used for full effect
(very important in small gardens).
The planting plan
are happy with the design, we proceed to a detailed planting plan, which
shows the positions of all the plants together with names and quantities. We
also provide colour photo samples of the new plants so you can see the style
of the new planting scheme. Not all design companies offer this, but we
believe it's essential as part of our service to you.
for construction and planting
design and planning has been done, we can offer preferred builders and
landscapers (in the case of larger gardens) to arrange the construction
stage. The scheduling of building work needs to be discussed at the
stage of quoting for the hard landscaping part of the project and is solely
at the discretion of the builders concerned.
course, you may wish to have the garden built by your own builders.
This is fine and we are always happy to liaise with a client’s own
Project management and
We firmly believe that overseeing
the construction of a garden is important to ensure our designs are implemented
exactly to our specifications. This also provides peace of mind for the
client as any problems can receive our on site attention. All hard landscaping, e.g. paths, walls, pergolas etc. are
constructed by independent, professional, highly experienced builders. Soft landscaping
is carried out by ourselves or fellow landscapers. Only high quality
materials and plants are used.
stages of design and construction, the client is kept well informed as to
the progression of the work and what sort of time scale can be expected
together with any costs which occur during the various stages.
This helps to reduce ‘hidden costs’.
With the new garden built and planted with colour and
fragrance, pull out a chair, grab a good book, sit back and relax in your own
private piece of Eden!....
