OUR PROCESS / How we work

process

Meeting

Initial Meeting

We will arrange a convenient time for Luke to come out and meet with you. At this first meeting he will discuss your hopes and requirements for the project. It’s also a good opportunity for him to explain the design process further and answer any questions you might have. We can also show you some examples of some of our recent design work. This initial meeting is free of charge. Following the meeting you will receive a quote for the design work via email, which will include a breakdown of the services offered.

Site Analysis

The next step in the process is to carry out a site survey & analysis of the garden. At this stage the garden is measured in detail and notes made on all aspects of the space. Depending on the size and complexity of the garden, Luke most likely will be able to carry out a site survey during the initial meeting. However if the space is particularly large, or there are other complexities, then we will arrange a convenient time to carry out the survey with another team member.

Sketches

1st Design Draft

Using both detailed notes taken at the initial meeting combined with the site survey and analysis, Luke will then set to work building a detailed, scale 3d representation of your garden on computer. This will include plant placement and lighting visuals if required. It will detail the materials and structures used in the design. We can either provide you with prints of the design or email them to you.

Alterations if required

At this stage (based on your feed back) we will either make alterations to the design, or if you are totally happy with the 1st draft then we will move on to the construction drawing stage.

Final Design

Construction Drawings

Once everyone is happy with the design a construction drawing is prepared, which details technical specifications for materials on which the landscapers can base their quotations. This is a 2d top down scale drawing.

Planting Plan

Not every design project requires a planting plan but if it’s agreed that one is needed a detailed plan showing plant placement, quantities and varieties is drawn up. We also offer a planting service.

Build

Landscapers

We work with a small number of trusted and highly skilled landscapers based in Milton Keynes, Northampton and Kettering. They provide clients with the highest quality of workmanship and we keep in close contact with both the clients and landscapers throughout the build to answer any queries.

Aftercare

We offer a full maintenance service to keep your garden looking as good as the day we left it.
