Garden Design Services

The complete Garden Design service starts with a consultation to establish the brief and progresses through the development of the garden design concept to the appointment of a landscaper and finally the implementation of the detailed garden design plans.




Other garden design services I can supply are:
Planting Design only: I will design a scheme for your existing planting beds.
Maintenance Schedule:
what to do when, tailored to your scheme.
Plant Supply and Placement: I will supply the plants from reputable nurseries and position them prior to planting.

My garden design fees are presented as a fixed cost, so you know from the start how much you will be paying. Additional site visits are charged by the half-hour.  Site work such as placing plants is charged by the hour.

Consultation: A meeting to discuss your requirements, assess the site and begin to develop the brief.  Following this I will put our discussion in writing with some initial ideas for a new garden design concept and a quotation for my garden design services.
Garden Design Concept: proposes a solution for your garden, using hand-drawn plans and drawings in colour to help you visualise the completed garden.  If you don't like it, I will change it.
Detailed Garden Design: plans and construction drawings detailing setting-out, drainage, irrigation and structures such as timberwork and steps.  These drawings enable a landscaper to implement the garden design.  If required I can also provide a written specification.
Planting Design: plants will dress, colour and soften the garden design.  Detailed planting plans show the species, variety, quantity and position of each plant.  A Plant Schedule gives the quantity required for each plant.
Contractor Liaison: If required, I will find a Landscaper to implement the garden design and will visit the site during construction in order to field any queries.
