Surveys

Garden surveys are usually carried out by The Landscape Gardener in-house staff. For complex gardens with awkward layouts and for large scale projects, we use a chartered land surveyor.

All surveys incorporate the entire area to be designed and include:

  • The building or buildings
  • DPC (damp proof course), windows, doors, lights, taps, flues, steps etc
  • Any existing features – trees, large shrubs, borders, ponds, terraces, boundaries, walls etc
  • Inspection chambers, rain water pipes, locations of services (where possible), overhead cables etc
  • Relevant levels all around the garden and features, including a datum point (usually DPC). Invert levels of inspection chambers will be recorded, where required, such as for the construction of swimming pools
