The key to successful garden design is understanding exactly how the garden will be used and the aspirations of the client. Whether you have a large garden or a single bed which needs re-thinking, Sue will be happy to discuss your ideas & believes that the garden can improve your quality of life and enhance the value of your property.
Following agreement of the design brief, a Design Fee Proposal will be submitted based on the estimated number of hours required to complete each of the three design stages.
We will survey the existing garden area for size, orientation, levels, soil type & existing plants. You will then receive a hand-draw & coloured Concept Design plan & sketches with photographic plant & building material references. These boards are yours to keep and can be mounted as original artworks.
Following discussion with you, we produce fully detailed plans including any agreed changes, plus instructions for landscape contractors estimates.
We provide detailed planting layouts with plant quantities for budget quotes before purchase. Upon agreement we will require a 50% plant budget deposit. We will also discuss any preparation work required such as tree surgery, pruning & soil preparation.
We will oversee the contractor’s work & discuss any changes with you.
We will select & buy the plants as agreed, & provide a final estimate for planting. Our planting service fees are based on a day rate of £180.
