1. Initial Consultation, the brief
After making contact, the next step will be to arrange a site visit, in which i can discuss the design process. I will listen to your ideas, how you would like to use your garden and your likes and dislikes.
Following the meeting, a design brief can be formulated and a written quotation can be provided for the estimated design fees.
2. Site Survey Analysis
On agreement of the design quotation, we will carry out an accurate measured survey of your garden before starting any design work. For larger gardens, an independent surveying company may need to be employed.
This will allow an accurate topographic scaled plan to be produced of the existing garden and can then be used for the new design work.
