Garden design

Now you're talking - this is our speciality. The process of designing a new outside space is really exciting - from the initial consultation, to the sketches and plans right through to the build and completion.

 

We revel in giving you an outside space you can treasure. Every beautiful summers evening, we bask in a warm glow thinking of our past customers enjoying a nice chilled white in their lovely new garden.

 

Our 5-step personal service

Step 1: We'll come over and meet you and your garden and discuss your requirements. We discover what you'd like, what inspires or influences you. Favourite smells and colours can obviously come in handy. Especially if you fancy a garden that wafts evening scents of honeysuckle... mmmm. We do a basic site survey, take some photographs, devise a client brief and agree a budget if you have one.

 

Step 2: We produce some concept sketches and ideas which we come over and present to you together with an estimate of design and landscaping costs. There is a fixed fee of £250 for these concept sketches which will get deducted from your final bill should you commission our design.

 

Step 3: Once a concept is agreed we will arrange with you a convenient time for us to carry out a full dimensional survey of your garden and the exterior of your house and other buildings. If the work involves walls, bridges or other substantial structures, subject to your approval, we may have to employ other approved professionals (e.g. construction engineers) and pass the invoices on at cost (possible disbursements such as planning application fees, land survey and soil testing where applicable, will be passed on to you at cost also).

 

Step 4: We will present you with a full computer drawn and hand-coloured plan, working drawings and full specifications and budgets. The hand-coloured plans are beautiful and are well worth keeping or even framing! We will then undertake the landscaping work, if required.

 

Step 5: If you would like us to project manage the building of your new garden then we are more than happy to help you with this. Just ask.

 

Design by the hour

If you don't think a full design is for you but you'd like the help and advice to tweak certain aspects of your garden, we are happy to provide you with an hourly service for £30 per hour where you can pick our brains!

 

Landscaping

We undertake soft landscaping (removal and replanting existing plants, installing new planting, re-turfing etc), but we don't undertake construction work (hard landscaping) such as patios, decking, etc. Although we can personally recommend trusted local landscapers to help, or you might want to employ your own landscaper or do the work yourself, based on our design plans.
