Design Process

Our Design Process

Step 1- Initial site meeting
Every garden design project begins with an initial onsite consultation. spending time on-site with the client and drawing out the essence of space is vital. We will begin the discussion of your budget at this stage.
Step 2 – Proposal 
Following our initial meeting, we will supply a quote for our design services.
Step 3 – Design Brief
Upon receipt of the initial deposit payment, we will formulate the client brief. The brief design meeting will take place at a 2nd site meeting or via a zoom call.
This meeting will be crucial to the success of you project. the brief must fulfill your aesthetic
aspirations, your ecological aspirations, and your functional requirements and needs.
Step 4- Site Survey and Analysis
the current site levels, buildings, trees, utilities, and services will need to be recorded by a professional surveyor. this forms the basis of the design. we will also return to make a complete photographic survey and site analysis which feeds into the design concept. We also recommend undertaking an ecological survey to establish baselines before starting the project.
Step 5- Concept stage
The thoughtful client brief and our site analysis underpin this stage. We then start to work on the
garden design ideas for your new wildlife-friendly garden, which results in an outline design proposal.
Step 6: Presentation Plan
When you’re happy with the outline design proposal, we create a final presentation plan, which captures the agreed layout design of your biodiverse garden.
Step 7: Detailed design and specification package
We then work on the detailed design, including the hard and soft landscape elements. this step may consist of close coordination with other professionals involved in the project (ecologists, architects, engineers, etc. )
This package allows the scheme to be accurately costed and built correctly.
Step 8: Sourcing a Landscape Contractor
We can recommend a single, preferred contractor fo the project or via a restricted tender process in which two or more recommended contractors will be invited to quote for the garden build. alternatively, we can recommend a variety of specialists to carry the individual elements of your design. we can help coordinate either process on your behalf.
Step 9: Garden construction and project monitoring
When the landscaper contractor/ individual specialist contractors are selected, we can monitor the garden build for you, ensuring the project is installed per our design.

Step 10 – Installation of Soft Landscaping
When the hard landscaping is complete, we can supply a quotation to supply and install the
planting/meadow installation etc.
Step 11: Ongoing Management and Maintenance
The last step is the most important, though ongoing garden management and maintenance is often under-resourced . Teasels want to be involved with the garden after its construction. As gardeners, we understand the design and build of the project is just the start the
process. ‘The garden is the gardener…..
