Garden Design Service
The garden design phase goes through the following stages
- Measuring the garden such that a scale plan can be produced.
- Taking levels if required. For large gardens on different levels a professional surveyor may need to be employed.
- Analysing the site conditions such as soil type, aspect, screening requirements etc.
- Taking photos so that I can see the garden from all angles when back in the office.
2- Outline plans
I then work on producing an outline plan. This takes into account all of the clients requirements, along with the information gathered during the survey. This will be accompanied with 3D sketches. I arrange a meeting with the client to discuss these outline plans, and make any alterations as necessary.
3- Final plans
The final plans will then be drawn up, including a detailed planting list. There will be a specification for the landscaping elements, and construction drawings can be produced if required. I arrange a meeting with the client to present a colour copy of the plan and discuss how the project moves forward. Some clients build the garden themselves, perhaps in phases. Alternatively I can provide recommendations for contractors or a client can arrange their own contractor.
