The Design Process

Working with you

We like a personal approach to design, allowing the client to engage in the process of creating their spaces as well. This way the garden reflects the personalities of those using it.

Concept Design

As part of the concept design we often include one or two detailed sketches as a way to visualise the design. A concept plan doesn't give you a clear a idea of what it will actually look and feel like because it is too flat. Making it 3-D allow's you to imagine the design within your space.

Detailed Plan + Planting Plan

A version of the concept plan which includes the finer details needed for construction to be used by hard landscapers in building the bones of the garden. This would cover scale, exact measurements and hard materials specified for example colour of concrete, type of wood etc. 

This plan takes the concept plan into the three dimensional with detail of plants as they are the essential structure of the garden. This includes a planting list. 


Sourcing and Planting

We work and source directly from the nurseries to get the best quality plants at the right size. Planting in to give them the best chance of survival and establishment. At this stage we quite often work with clients to do planting if they wish and educate them on aftercare.
