This process always starts with you. I will arrange a consultation to discuss your ideas and scope of the project so that a design brief can be formulated. This meeting is an opportunity for me to get to know you,the garden and how it will be used, any likes or dislikes.
After this meeting we will send you a design proposal and associated fees.
Before the design process begins the first step is for us to carry out a survey and analysis of the space.
This will normally be carried out by me, For larger landscapes we will organise for a specialist to collect all of the information required.
CONCEPT DESIGN DRAWING
After our initial consultation and survey. i will produce a basic concept plan of your garden. This will include the overall layout and scale of features that are proposed in the new garden.
At this point we can discuss any amendments and tweaks to the design before we develop the master plan.
A planting schedule will list all of the proposed planting, plant specification, quantities and sizes.
This will be accompanied by a mood board with images of the selected planting. A precise planting plan can be produced showing the exact locations of the plants. In some circumstances, our preference is to produce a plant schedule and source the best plants available for the budget rather than meticulously plot plants on paper.
The plants can then be set out on site and the exact positions chosen to suit the shape and habit of the particular specimen.
To design a small garden costs between £500 and £800 + VAT, a medium garden between £800 and £2,000 and a large garden between £2,000 and £10,000.
