The design process can phased into four stages

• Initial brief and planning
• Planting plans, plant supply and planting up
• Completed garden plans
• Garden build
• Plant garden and maintain

Phase One: Initial briefing and planning

The first step in having your garden designed is to call and arrange an introductory meeting. By the end of Phase One we will have agreed a clear direction for your new garden, ready for detailed plans to be drawn.

The overall shape of your new garden has been agreed, now we can confirm this in detail with hard and soft landscaping plans.
• Final garden layout (hard landscaping) presented to client

• Planting (soft landscaping) plans prepared
• Planting schemes presented to client>
