How I Work
How I work

Whatever size space you have I can help you to make it the best it can be. I offer a full design service from concept design through to completion, as well as planting design and also consultation to help you develop the space yourself. I work with other experts to deliver a brilliant garden, and with my small team I also provide aftercare to ensure that your new green space grows and thrives as it should.

Initial Consultation / Site Visit

After the first contact and a chat on the phone we can arrange for me to visit you to see your outside space and discuss exactly how you would like to use it. I will then send you a written note of our discussions (a design brief) and a proposal clearly outlining the design costs and the budget we have discussed.

Garden Survey & Analysis

Your garden will need to be measured, analysed and drawn to scale. For larger/complex gardens a chartered surveyor will be needed.

Design

The design process usually includes all of these elements, but might be tweaked to suit your project;

  • Concept layout plan
  • 3D visuals
  • Detailed construction drawings and setting out plans
  • Lighting plan
  • Written specification for tender
  • Detailed planting plan
Tender Process/Construction stage

Once all of the details have been finalised it will be time to obtain prices. I can suggest a number of landscape contractors to quote for the build of the garden and compare their prices for you. I will then work closely with your chosen landscaper and any other suppliers/contractors to make the design come to life.

Planting

Trees and plants be will be sourced from high quality and trusted nurseries, making visits to select feature specimens. The planting will be carried out by myself and my team of trusted, experienced gardeners and plants-people. If necessary we may enlist the help of the landscape contractor or another specialist to assist with the planting of large trees and shrubs.

Aftercare

Soon after completion I will return to check on your garden and can provide ongoing aftercare with my trusted team. We also love helping our clients to learn new skills via one-to-one sessions, so that you can enjoy looking after the garden yourself or working alongside us to help it develop as it should.

So how much will my new garden cost?

We will discuss this and set a realistic budget range at the initial meeting. It really depends on many factors including what you want from the garden, which materials you would like, how complex the design is and the size and current condition of the garden.

As a guide, my gardens typically cost between £15,000-£80,000. My fees for the whole design process are normally between 10-15% of the total cost, however every project is unique and my proposal will be tailored to suit following our initial meeting and discussions.
