Our Process

Minimalist Form.
Natural Planting.
Beautifully Detailed.

1. Site Visit + Survey

The initial meeting allows us to visit the site and discuss the project aims. 

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

2. Concept

The concept landscape design plans include sketches and 3D visualisations which allow you to get better understanding of the proposed design. 

This stage is open until all parties are in agreement with the format.

3. Detailed Design

The detailed technical design explores how the designed landscape will be built. This includes a 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.

4. 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 also offer a standalone planting design service.

5. Tendering

The detailed design plans are sent is two landscapers (landscape contractors) who price the work. The returned cost breakdowns allow you to choose your preferred company to work with.

6. 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 and planting design inspired by nature.
