A home visit to explain the service and explore the potential of the garden. This will take between one and two hours. My portfolio is presented and a detailed questionnaire is completed. A selection of reference books is brought along to aid the process. By the end of my visit you will have a clear idea of your requirements.This consultation fee is deducted from further costs should you decide to commission the design.
Survey and Analysis
This is an accurate measurement of the site outline and buildings, with an analysis of soil, aspect, light and shade. A survey drawing is produced for you to keep. Digital photographs will also be taken at this stage.
Zonal Plan, Master Plan and 3D Image
A zonal plan is drawn up showing where the agreed features can best be placed. From this a master plan is developed to produce an artistic and accurately hand-drawn representation of the overall design. To make visualising this plan easier a 3D image may also be commissioned.
This is a scale drawing showing the exact positioning of suitable plants for
the design. This drawing also lists correct Latin plant names and numbers required.
Making the Garden
You may wish to make the garden yourself. If not I will be pleased to arrange
for a respected garden builder to do the work.
