Design

Initial Consultation

The consultation will be to view your garden and discuss your requirements and is free of charge for clients in Somerset.

Concept Sketch Plan

This is a basic plan with several sketch drawings and planting ideas and may be all that is required to help you enjoy your garden. The plan is based on discussions of your specific needs, including function, likes and dislikes, plants and style etc.

Scaled Plan Drawings

These are produced once the design layout has been chosen:

  • Master Plan – this is the final layout plan and is draw to scale using 2D CAD. It provides all the relevant information required to build the garden including hard landscaping materials and can be used by a contractor.
  • Planting Plan – A detailed plan will be created using plants that will suit the growing conditions of your garden, complement the design and provide interest throughout the year. The planting plan will show the type, number and location of each plant. A planting schedule is also produced, this document is a list of all the plants, and includes details on the quantity and size required.

Landscaping, Construction and Planting

I work with experienced and reputable landscaping contractors who build my garden designs to a high standard. I am happy to liaise with contractors during the construction stage and once the landscaping is complete, I will source, order and supervise the planting of the garden.

Project Management

Full project management may be required on large designs to obtain and work with contractors, source materials and to ensure the build runs on time and to budget. I have extensive experience of managing this process and working closely with landscaping contractors as my clients’ independent agent. This includes managing the tender process and monitoring activity on site throughout the entire construction period.
