The Concept Design

Once we have been appointed to design your garden we go on a fact finding mission.

This is in two parts - gaining a better understanding of the site, and what you are looking to achieve. A full site survey is commissioned accurately measuring boundaries, adjacent buildings, existing features, trees and plants that you wish to retain. A full site assessment is carried out to make note of things such as privacy issues, views, location of services, the general aspect and climate of the garden, as well as taking photos.

 

 

We also meet up with you to have an in depth discussion to explore your specific requirements.

This information forms the basis of the design brief and kick starts the creative process. Further computer based design research is carried out in conjunction with hand drawn sketches, exploring various spatial options before arriving at the best layout for your requirements.

The Concept Presentation

We prepare a formal presentation, to show you initial plans and lots of lovely sketches of various views around your new garden. Accompanying these will be a mood board showing various images and photographs, which aim to convey the overall look and feel of the new design elements and planting.

Initial Budget Estimate

At the concept stage we also present you with preliminary budget costs, calculated from the CAD drawings and based on square meterage and linear dimensions of items within the layout. This helps you identify where costs are coming from so you can assess your priorities in terms of hitting your budget in the second design phase. We take on board your feedback and comments to make any necessary modifications that ensure the final design fits your requirements and your budget, creating the final Master Plan. This plan forms the bais of all additional plans and drawings.
