4. See Your Garden Taking Shape on Screen

We want to ensure you love the direction we are taking with your design so as soon as we have a basic garden concept ready for your review, we ask for more feedback.

For full site concepts, we set up a screen-share meeting where your design expert talks you through the design on-screen and explains the thinking behind the proposed garden design ideas and details, which will have been based on the wish list you will have provided using one of our online tools.  For partial site designs, plans are emailed for your review, with screen-share service available as an extra service. 

Your input and feedback mean you control the final design direction.

Stage One: Existing Site Plan

First, your garden designer will first draw-up your existing site plan using either existing plans or the measurements you have provided along with your photos, coupled with land information data they will source online.

This lets you confirm our interpretation of the existing landscaping and site conditions. From this we will develop your landscape concept plan.

Stage Two: Draft Concept Plan

Then, your Garden Designer will produce a draft landscape design incorporating the key landscape components you have requested from your completed wish-list, overlaid with their expert ideas.

This is then presented for review and feedback, to ensure we are on the right track and to resolve any uncertainties.

Stage Three: Developed Plan

Next, the developed Garden Design is revised, with  fiinal design and garden layout adjustments  made to the landscape plan. 

This then forms the basis of your garden concept, which will contain the more detailed information on ideas, materials and components shown in the plan.  

Final Stage: Finalised Concept

A finalised, full site concept purchased from our fixed-price range will be supplied as an emailed PDF. Printed & couriered hard-copy plan option also available. 

It will include:

  • An easy to understand, personalised plan for laying out your garden or landscape
  • An individualised palette of landscaping materials put together specifically for your project
  • Suggestions and suppliers for readily available modular or prefabricated landscape components
  • Additional ‘splurge’ items should you wish to give your garden an extra touch of luxury
  • A separate planting plan and plant list
