Classic and Contemporary Garden Designs

The Garden Design Process

I understand the importance of your garden and the commitment required to bring in a professional garden designer. By listening carefully to your requirements and ideas, I can help you realise your dream garden. Whether you require help with planting schemes or hard landscaping I will be able to advise and assist accordingly. Where you are looking for creativity and inspiration my ideas and practical experience will be very welcome.

Client Enquiry

With over 15 years practical experience in Horticulture and qualifications in RHS Level 2 Practical Horticulture and Level 3 (Diploma) in Garden Design and Landscaping I am well placed to assist with all your gardening queries and problems.

In the event that I am unable to identify a particular plant, or am unsure of a plant care query, I will usually take photographs and follow up with the answer to your query as soon as possible.

Initial Consultation / Site Survey

Once we agree terms, I will meet with you again to discuss the possibilities for your garden in more detail. This is generally a collaborative process involving the amalgamation of our collective ideas. At this point I will have enough information and appreciation of your ideal garden layout to begin the imaginative process resulting in the first draft Conceptual Plan.

Concept Plan Presentation / Finalisation

When the draft Conceptual Plan is completed, I will present this to you for your input. Should you require amendments or alterations, I will be happy to incorporate them at this stage in order to present the final plan. At this point I will be happy to provide a quote for the detailed planning and installation phase.

Quotation for Installation Phase

It is only once the garden plan has been finalised that I can produce a quotation for the installation phase of your garden. This will typically comprise a lump sum quote usually separated as labour, plants, materials and any subcontracted aspects (eg lighting or major landscaping works). I will also provide a cost for a maintenance schedule ie instructions for future plant care and can provide costs to provide regular expert maintenance care if preferred.

Concept Plan Presentation / Finalisation

I will be happy to visit your garden after a suitable period, usually 6 months after installation, to ensure that all plants are growing properly and also to answer any queries you may have (although you are, of course, welcome to ask me any questions that you may have at any time).
