Landscape is what happens when culture meets nature. – Simon Schama, Landscape and Memory (1995)
After first contact, we will visit you and your garden for an initial consultation, which may be all you require for some expert advice or ideas. The fee for this visit depends upon how far we have to travel.
At this time we can discuss your requirements and agree how much or how little assistance you need. We can show you our portfolio and discuss the services we can provide. Some gardens, having become tired or filled with overgrown borders just need advice on reshaping, thinning out and replanting, whilst others having maybe just had an extension to the house, need an area redesigning to ground the new extension into what is possibly an already mature site. Alternatively yours may be a garden where the children, now grown up, mean the lawn is no longer used as a football pitch and the rusty old swing is just an eyesore and so the garden is in need of a complete redesign to create a peaceful, private, beautiful oasis with year round interest and colour. We can help. We can tailor a project to suit you, regardless of how large or small. Photographs will be taken at this stage.
Once appointed a site survey may be needed and a quote will be given separately for this. From this survey and the project requirements already agreed, we will create a design sketch plan complete with elevation drawings, perspective drawings and a mood board with photographs explaining in detail the ideas, materials being used and general feel of the design proposal. You can then use these drawings to obtain your own quotes for building by a contractor, or if you wish, we can help arrange the complete construction for you. We can draw up detailed construction drawings for the site, compile a contract specification document and put the project out to tender to obtain the best quotes for construction, knowing they will all be to the same standard.
Planting plans with plant details and quantities can be supplied to complete the design. We also offer a service to design the planting plans, procure the plants at reduced prices and plant up the garden for you.
We want to use our expertise to create the garden or landscape of your dreams with as little, or as much, input from you as you wish.
