Garden Design

We are happy to undertake any size of commission - a compact urban courtyard receives the same care and attention to detail as an expansive rural idyll. Like their owners, every garden is unique. You may or may not know exactly how you want to use the space you have, but it won't be the same as anyone else and we can help tailor the end result to suit your needs.

This service includes some or all of the following:

  • Initial consultation to assess the garden and discuss your requirements and aspirations, garden uses and the overall budget.
  • Written brief and fee quotation
  • Site Survey
  • Initial sketch design for discussion
  • Finalised master plan
  • Detailed construction plan
  • Planting plan
  • Project tendering
  • Project monitoring
  • Plant sourcing
  • Plant layout and planting

 

Planting Design

You may have a garden which is structurally well designed but has never been planted, has some gaps or areas of inappropriate or tired planting. In this case, we offer a planting design service. This could involve a total redesign of your borders’ planting or could simply be supplementary or seasonal planting.

This service includes:

  • An initial site visit and survey to assess the garden and discuss your requirements and aspirations, garden uses and the overall budget
  • Written brief and fee quotation
  • Site Survey
  • A planting plan identifying the plant species and varieties, location and quantity, drawn in plan view, usually in colour on A3 format. It takes into account the specific conditions of your garden such as soil conditions, aspect, and setting.
  • A planting schedule for sourcing yourself or pricing with our wholesale suppliers.
  • Basic care instructions

Optional extras:

  • Plant Sourcing

Sourcing, selection and collection of plants from nurseries or wholesale suppliers. Of course you are welcome to come along to the nursery if you wish.

  • Plant Layout and planting

Layout of plants in your garden and/or their planting

Garden advice/consultancy

Quite often, there is a simply a need to review what already exists in your garden.  We can give advice on the best way to improve and tweak it or even just to get the best out of the plants already there. This may include suggestions to replanting the odd bed, add in new planting or change gardening and pruning practices. A report of suggested plants or hard landscaping that will enhance or improve your garden can be provided.
