Exploring the existing levels, buildings, trees, utilities & services, all of which need to be recorded. .
On some occasions an independent surveyor may need to be be appointed. Fees do not include the cost of a surveyor but I am very happy to arrange this service for you.
I then make a presentation in CAD form of my ideas & concepts, including creating a mood-board to further illustrate the finished garden. These will be good visual tools
that we can use to enable the design to evolve & develop .
A detailed masterplan which incorporates the changes & revisions from the last meeting is presented. This package allows me to build a budget for the project.
I will now design a detailed planting plan. You may wish to remain closely involved in this part of the process.
If you are a keen gardener you may have a particular scheme in mind & so your ideas at this stage of the design will play key.
Each design will be presented to 2/3 reputable landscape contractors. Following an on site visit a full itemised quote will be offered for your consideration.
