GARDEN DESIGN SERVICES

There is nothing better than a well designed and built garden but it can be a bit daunting if you have never done it before where do you start. This is where a good designer can help not only with ideas but also to save you time and money there are several stages to go through before we get to build your dream garden. I have laid out below the design process we need to go through to be able to build your garden all our designs are hand draw by us we never use CAD drawing so we give as much love to the drawings as we do to the finished garden.



Initial Consultation

We will visit your garden to meet you find out what you are wanting to get out of your garden what you want to use the space for. Also to see if what you want to achievable in the space you have is possible we will look at styles of gardens you like dislike and the same with colours. This is where we get to know you and get the information we need to design the garden of your dreams before we arrive have a think about what you want even have a family discussion so everyone has a say. Budget it is always better to be up front about what you want to spend from the beginning as what you want to achieve may not be possible with the budget you have.

Site Survey

This is when we come and measure up the boundaries of your garden, key features that you want to keep in the new garden levels etc. Take photographs identify any plants that you want to keep in the gardens aspect of the garden and a basic PH soil test.

Survey of under ground cables, water, telephone etc.


Concept Design

Once we have collected the above information we are then able to put together an initial design for you these designs will not be to scale. But will show how your garden will look this will include photograph's of materials, plants and styles so you can get a feel of what the garden will look like. We will present this to you in person we can even mark out the garden with string and sticks so you can get an idea of what it will look like on the ground it is at this stage we can make changes to the design.
