Our Design Process
Whether you have a small domestic garden or large country estate, every project is an exciting new challenge. Each project begins with the same initial steps.
We will set up an initial consultation at the site in question with you to establish the scope of the project, basic information about the site and explain our approach. This usually takes a day, depending on the ground we need to cover. It’s a time for walking, talking, and listening closely to your ideas, inspirations, and ambitions.
If our approach is compatible with your aspirations, we will provide you with a quote for our design and consultation expertise.
We encourage our clients to participate fully in the design process to ensure the most meaningful outcome.
Once a fee for the concept design stage is agreed upon, we carry out an initial site analysis and ecological survey. We then start on the concept design in earnest
This is developed in full consultation with you, so that any ideas or additions to the brief can be incorporated along the way.
Once the concept design is finalised, we start work on the detailed design, producing a package of construction plans and details to allow your project to be built.
Following the completion of the detailed design package, we can provide a tender and contract preparation service, to identify an appropriate contractor, if required
During construction, we can attend the site at agreed intervals to inspect and advise on progress.
After completion, we strongly encourage regular follow-up visits to ensure that your garden is settling in as intended and to advise on its development.
