Why is garden design important?
Garden design provides the creative and practical foundation for transforming your garden.
Most clients are looking for inspiration, which we are happy to offer, having over twenty years of design experience in planning individual and diverse landscapes.
In practical terms, the garden design process accurately scales the area in question, identifies issues and provides accurate costings for the project.
Our work ranges from the traditional to the contemporary, with our designer's unique style intrinsic to all commissions.
What is the typical garden design process?
In most cases, the garden design process begins with an initial client / site meeting to assess the space and discuss client requirements. This is followed by an accurate survey, noting existing trees, services, and garden levels. A second client meeting then takes place to establish a more precise brief and an indication of budget.
he garden designer then starts to put together concepts and ideas in several sketches taken to a further consultation with the client to gain feedback and agreement on a lead design. The designer then produces a working masterplan, elevation drawings, material specifications, and additionally, planting plans on request. At this point, the client can also explore options for irrigation, lighting, furniture and planters.
How do you choose a garden designer?
We would always recommend using a designer with recognised qualifications and with several years of experience in order to ensure plans are completed to a professional standard.
