Private Garden Design

A. Brief & Survey:
The initial meeting allows us to visit the site and discuss the project aims. On site sketching and reference images are used to confirm the general aims of the landscape design.

A topographic survey will be required and can be organised if not already available.

B. Concept:
The concept landscape design plans include sketches and 3D visualisations which a clear understanding of the proposed design. 

Plans can be developed at this stage for planning submission. In order to provide the correct amount of information there will need to be some additional detailing. 

C. Detailed Design:
The detailed technical design explores how the designed landscape will be built. This includes a full specification of all bespoke details, materials, edges, drainage, external lighting, levels and site sections.

Commercial projects generally also require Tree Protection, Ecological Mitigation plans and Landscape Strategy documents to support the planning application.

D. Planting Design:
Planting is probably the most important part of any project as it defines the general mood of the project.

All planting design relies on choosing the right plants that are suitable for the site conditions and work well together.

We offer a standalone planting design service.

E. Tendering:
The detailed design plans and quantity schedules are sent is at least two landscaper contractors to price the work. The itemised returns are then compared and edited if required.

F. Construction: 
We work with trusted landscape contractors, who deliver our designs to the highest standard. We provide a monitoring service to supervise the work and handle any queries. 

Modern landscape + garden design inspired by nature.
