Liz will meet with you for a free one hour consultation to view your garden & discuss your garden design requirements, likes & dislikes, & talk through practical issues, initial design ideas & budget. Following this meeting, you will receive a letter outlining the design brief & associated design fees.
Liz completes a full site survey for smaller gardens herself, but may require a professional surveyor for larger & more complex gardens. The survey will show levels, the positions of buildings & existing planting, trees & any other feature.
Concept Design Plans illustrate the initial ideas. Once agreed, the design is developed into a fully scaled 2d Presentation Plan, with corresponding 3d images & Mood Boards.
A Specification Plan includes all the detailing of the hard landscaping elements from which a contractor can quote & build the garden design. Additional Construction Drawings show specific detailing for garden features within the design.
The Planting Plan shows the location & spacing of the selected plants, & a plant schedule lists the sizes & quantities for costings & ordering.
Plants are chosen for size, texture, form & colour, as well as maintenance level & suitability of soil & aspect.
