This first site meeting is about getting to know you and your garden dreams. Here we will establish the design brief and discuss our initial ideas and solutions for your property. There may even be a draft sketch drawn on the spot to help visualise the possibilities!
The site survey will help us prepare an accurate base plan to begin the design process. Nothing goes unnoticed! Many aspects are measured and noted including the house layout, levels, existing features, trees, drains, and taps. Even your cat might be measured!!
The concept stage explores ideas to fufill the brief. This begins with the practical layout and function of the different spaces within your property before moving on to how these will look and the material selection. Once presented, any changes are made to the plan until the client (and designer!) are 100% happy!
After the concept is finalised an initial estimate costing can be undertaken by the chosen landscape contractor. This will help you to work out an exact budget and/or staging of the garden build.
Often overlooked the planting plan provides the exact layout and careful selection of plants to bring your garden to life! Detailed construction drawings may also be required for your garden to be built successfully and as per the designer's requirements.
The bit you've been waiting for!! Your landscaper may have everything under control but don't forget about your designer! To ensure the end result is successful we are available to visit during construction. This service includes the site set out, checking on workmanship, resolving any issues or changes, and last but not least plant placement!
