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 was very impressed with Green Dot Gardens when I used them last year in my role of head gardener and project manager for a large garden project I was working on for a client near north Ascot. The GDG team were extremely professional, polite, motivated, tidy and helpful. They helped solve several unforeseen problems during the project with great alacrity and common sense and their work was of the highest calibre. I would recommend them most highly and look forward to working with them again in the future I hope.
Green Dot has worked on for us on two separate projects on our garden in Hurley and in both cases their work was imaginative, professional and came in on time and on budget. The first was a major landscaping scheme to incorporate an extension to the garden and they took our ideas, developed and enhanced them, and created a beautifully styled transition that brings pleasure every time we use the garden. The second project was to design and built a substantial arbor from oak beams, that was again an enhanced realisation of what we had envisaged. Both the arbor and the new garden layout work extremely well and have attracted consistent praise from guests and hugely increased our use of the garden. I have no hesitation in recommending Green Dot to anyone with landscaping plans to develop.
I was really pleased with not only the end result, but also the way in which the team worked patiently and imaginatively to design something I could never have had the creativity to suggest myself! The onsite team was hard working and polite. I was particularly pleased to experience the same level of commitment to the after care as to the original design and execution.
I found Green Dot to be extremely innovative and very hard working. I highly recommend their services.
Very happy with all aspects of the build – very competent guys, friendly and respectful. Did a great job
Thank you for a job well done. The foreman worked with particular dedication and commitment and this should be highly commended.
So many workmen and firms are a nightmare to deal with. Green Dot is a rare exception. Above all, you’ve all been cheerful and friendly.
Thank you to the team for the excellent job on our patio area. We are delighted with the results and the way in which the work was carried out. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to our friends and neighbours for similar projects.
It was easy for us to choose Green Dot Gardens. Others couldn’t offer the complete solution we were after. Jamie Higham simply delivered on his promise from design to completion. His approach was friendly, he was sympathetic to our requirements and budget without pressure to commit. Having been around for the whole process, I witnessed the sheer hard work the guys put in. Even in the worst of the rain, they just got on with it. I can’t praise them, or the quality of their work, highly enough.
I was thoroughly satisfied with the workmanship and quality of Jamie and Green Dot. They offered a very comprehensive service and were extremely reliable.
