How it works...

Process

green-stage-1

Our first meeting is normally held on-site, where we can get to know each other, show you our portfolio and chat through ideas with the aim of establishing a brief.

Our aim is to understand clearly how you want to use your garden and then to select shapes, materials and plants that create a good aesthetic balance, in a style that matches your tastes and preferences, and is in empathy with the surroundings.

We are careful to generate realistic concepts that are perfectly feasible to achieve. And in seeking the most satisfactory design solutions we will explore the options with you, to identify those that best fit your style preferences and budget.

We have developed a four-step design process that will take us through the creative and practical steps of planning and designing your garden.

Step 1.   Involves us making a comprehensive site survey so that we can produce a scale outline of your garden onto which sketches can be drawn. We then arrange a follow-up meeting to discuss our proposal and illustrate our ideas.

Step 2.    Is to amend the initial sketch design to incorporate any changes discussed during our meeting and seek an estimate for the landscaping work from the most appropriate of our preferred landscapers.

Step 3.   Produce a detailed design, choose the materials and seek a more detailed estimate from our chosen landscaper.

Step 4.   Agree a suitable start date and reserve a slot in the landscaper’s schedule.

After the excitement of the design process, construction begins. But don’t worry; our preferred landscapers are very practiced at minimising disruption to your normal lifestyle. You’ll find them to be approachable and trustworthy, and they will treat your home with respect.

 

All you need to do now is sit back and watch your fabulous new garden take shape. At first there will be utter chaos, but the point will soon be reached at which order is restored, and the design unfolds as a reality.

I just wanted to say thank you for my lovely garden! I’ve been watching it progress over the last couple of weeks, and taking photos each day to track the transformation.  Coming home to find the plants in situ was a wonderful experience – I love the way it looks, and it’s such a joyful space.  I really like the planting and your choice of herbs, grasses, shrubs, plants.  I especially like the use of the paddle stones around the little standard plant in the middle.  I can’t wait to show the garden off to friends and family! Russell and his team did a great job in all weather, and please pass on my thanks.  All I need now is some warm sunny weather to make the most of the garden and watch it grow.
