How our services work
The most important step – Based on your personal tastes and lifestyle and listening to you ‘our client’ we will produce a garden design, bespoke to you and you only.
At this stage we will visit you at your property and discuss your garden space, talk to you about what you want to achieve within your garden, your likes and dislikes regarding materi als, colours, features etc. We will make a detailed client brief on the above and your garden to allow us to produce a detailed quotation for the design.
The design quotation will be delivered in such a way that you will be able to choose the elements of the design process, just like a shopping list. You will require the survey and concept design as a minimum, the rest is up to you, the client.
The most crucial part of any design is the survey, without an accurate survey the new concept design can never be designed with the accuracy required to construct it. The survey gives the topographical layout of the existing area/s to be designed which will include but not limited to; Levels, boundary locations, tree locations, Inspection chambers Inc. invert levels if required, existing features and the property with doors and windows etc. The survey will be carried out in house where possible, however on mulita level, large or complicated gardens we will use a topographical surveyor to carry out the survey.
A concept design will be produced, which will be the first stage towards the detailed design – your input here is highly valued, and we find this gives clients a sense of ownership over what will be essentially be a beautifully created outdoor living space. The outline Concept Design is basic line drawings, annotated to show the locations of terraces/decks etc, pathways, steps, walls, water features etc. This is where all changes will be made until it is signed off by the client.
A highly detailed outline design brought from the agreed outline concept will be drawn up. With our superior attention to detail, this stage brings the drawn garden to life which, enables you to visualise how your finished space will look once the build has been completed. Every detailed drawing shows paving patterns, rocks, decking boards, step treads, planted areas etc. It is completed on CAD and coloured by hand. We can produce your design completely by hand following the outline conception if requested.
