New to Gardening?
If you are new to gardening or are unsure of what you really want from your garden we will advise on ways for you to create your own ideas and get a better understanding of what we may be proposing. This usually means that we will suggest that you visit a few of our favourite gardens - like Christopher Lloyds garden at Great Dixter or Piet Odolfs new garden at Hauser and wirth in Bruton. This can really help you gain Knowledge, inspiration and an understanding of what can be achieved in your garden.
We can also take you on visits to gardens that we have worked in and explain practically how the garden was designed and the build achieved.
How the Design process works
We provide a free initial consultation during which we ask question about what you want to achieve in your garden. Budgets and time scales are always important questions along with the design brief and we can advise on what is realistically achievable for your project. If you wish to proceed with a design, firstly we will put all the information into a written brief and draw up a couple of initial sketch ideas for the garden.
If you are then happy with the proposed ideas, we will draw up the full plan for your garden. There is a set fee for the initial sketch ideas - refundable from the cost of the overall design if you are happy to proceed.
