Contemporary Garden Design Process

A certain project sometimes involves a lengthy construction phase when outdoor use is deferred in dust and noise. It is often confusing due to an endless range of choices. We advise a quick tour of our client’s house to gain an insight into their contemporary style as we believe that this can work wonders in helping choose the very best garden design ideas. After the initial consultation, we will send garden design proposals, which relate to your style, needs, and investment expectation. We also include a full site survey and topography survey, which sets out the scale and potential scope for the garden design. We then spent sketching out ideas and concepts, then we send a draft of the concept to ensure we are meeting your expectations and iron out any issues that may be relevant. This makes the design process interactive and ensures we deliver a design that you’ll love. We then proceed in creating a 3-D concept image allowing you to see the design from a different perspective. Following a site survey and soil tests being carried out, designs are produced using a select range of plants specifically suited to the personal requirements, location, and site conditions. Finally, we create a planting plan, plant supply, and planting, and plant maintenance schedule, we also supply detailed construction schematics.
