Having agreed on the Outline Plan, I will prepare the Construction Plans for the hard landscaping, such as paths, steps, patio, pergola, pond. These are the essential plans that explain how the contractor must build the garden. These are imperative for the control of the final garden and its cost.
If you require any special features/services (lighting etc) for part or all of the garden, I can also prepare an Outline Plan and liaise with specialists to ensure that additional work is performed at the appropriate time without the need to rework plans.
After the design process has been completed you will be presented with a copy of the final garden design, all visualisationsand any other supporting information.
From here you can choose to implement the design yourselves, seek out a landscape contractor to help with the construction works or ask us about our landscape constructions services.

SITE SURVEY AND SKETCH DESIGN
Once a Garden Design Brief has been agreed, I will conduct a thorough Site Survey to record all measurements and key features. This is vital for the production of a garden design as it provides an accurate picture of the garden and key constraints.
Based on the survey, I will produce series of sketch layouts and accompanying Mood Board(s), and present this to you with an explanation of my proposed design. The Mood Board(s) are a pictorial statement (such as inspiring photos) allowing you an early insight into the visual direction that I am planning to design towards. I can also prepare 3D views and free-hand sketches if this will help you visualise your new garden. Once we have agreed on the Outline Plan, you can choose to progress to the detailed design stage. If planning permission is required, I can also help with this process.
INITIAL FREE CONSULTATION
This is the first vital step, in which I spend 1-2 hours with you in your garden to understand your initial objectives and vision. The result is a solid, shared understanding of your requirements and vision that is key to achieving a perfect design solution.
This consultation provides an opportunity to discuss your aims and requirements as well as a chance for me to see your garden and gain an impression of the surrounding landscape and environment. It will normally take 1-2 hours, as I ask a wide range of questions to elicit what you want your garden to be used for, and by whom, as well as exploring together different styles and designs for your garden, your budget, timescales and any constraints.
I will outline the various steps in the design process, and after this consultation, I will produce a Garden Design Brief containing a summary of your requirements and a quotation that will form the basis of the design work.
