Mood boards and outline drawings would be presented to you along with samples of the proposed materials.

At this stage amendments and revisions to the plans would be made before progressing to the next step.

5. DETAILED DESIGN
Presentation of the detailed design drawing along with a specification for the work, construction drawings and planting plans as required and a cost schedule breaking the work down into sections.

Landscape Overview
Whether you are looking to completely transform your garden or just looking to revamp an area in need of an uplift the following landscape services are available either, as part of our one-stop, garden design and build service or, on an individual basis for smaller projects.

For example, you may wish to rejuvenate a neglected border with a new planting scheme, in which case we would offer you planting proposals, including planting plans and concept boards to help you visualise the scheme, before proceeding with the planting.

Alternatively, you may have an established garden where the paths and terraces need relaying or extending, or you require lighting and irrigation to be installed within your garden.

We would prepare a landscape brief for the work followed by an outline design. a specification, and a cost schedule before implementing the work.
