Design Process


This is where we first meet to discuss your ideas and desires for your outdoor space.  I can get a feel for the space, the surrounding area as well as your home and style.


The next step is to start coming up with mood boards and ideas from the initial consultation.  The second meeting will be to see the first draft of the design which is a working drawing in pencil.


The finalised design is then put into pen or computer aided and labelled. Then its now time to get started on the planting plan.


The construction details are finished and sent off to the contractors along with the setting out drawing and scope of works detailing the specific materials for the design.


After the project is complete and reviewed, aftercare advice is given to make sure the garden is properly cared for and keeps looking its best.  This can be provided by myself if you wish.
