The design process will routinely begin with a site meeting where the designer will ascertain the client’s wish-list for the new garden. The customer’s brief will be drawn up and sent back to the client along with a draught fee estimate for design work.
Accurate measurements of all existing features will be taken upon which the design will be based. Levels, features, boundaries, access, views, plants, trees, aspect and soil type will all be assessed. Initial presentations can include 2D and 3D computer sketches and models, pencil sketches and mood boards.
With the client and designer in agreement, the full design will be drawn up in the form of a Masterplan. The Masterplan will denote areas of hard landscaping, trees, lawns and planting areas along with some outline ideas about lighting, planting, irrigation and any other items such as garden furniture or bespoke features. The Masterplan will include detailed cross-sections where required along with construction drawings and dimensions, full material specifications and a scope of works for the project.
“When I first saw the house I really did think that the small garden was a deal breaker and we could not live there. You have transformed the space into a garden that feels spacious and wonderful.”
