Whether it’s a stylish place to entertain family and friends, a backyard playground or a quiet urban oasis to connect with nature I bring my experience as a passionate gardener to combine interesting textures and shapes to achieve an outstanding and functional design sympathetic to my client’s home and lifestyle.
I like to work collaboratively with clients to achieve a garden that the client adores and wants to spend time in and that adds value to the property. We work on small, medium and large residential properties.
Our fees are structured around the following garden design services;
FULL GARDEN DESIGN CONSULTATION AND IMPLEMENTATION
- A Full Design Consultation and Implementation
Design services for a landscape design project typically include;
- An initial consultation
A free on site consultation enables me to meet with you and discuss your vision for your garden. I view the design process as a collaborative process that achieves all the client’s desires with the flair of a designer’s input. After this discussion a brief is agreed upon and if everyone is happy I will forward agreement for completion.
- A concept plan
On agreement of the brief, developed from initial discussions, we will complete a site visit to measure and photograph the project site. The concept plan stage is the opportunity to get creative, think outside the box and collaboratively explore options for the space. I will produce several sketches, a plant palette and a plan that gives the client a complete visual understanding of their garden.
- A site and planting plan
Once the concept plan is approved working drawings can be completed that give the final details needed for construction of hard and soft landscaping.
- Project management
We will source and install the planting and project manage the installation of all other aspects of the design. We welcome the opportunity to work alongside experienced contractors and industry professionals.
GARDEN DESIGN ONLY WITH CLIENT IMPLEMENTATION
It maybe that you have the skills to construct and install a garden but want a professional’s assistance with the plans.
GARDEN DESIGN CONSULTATION
Maybe you have just moved house or just want to bounce a few ideas off a designer about a certain area of your property. Problems with plants dieing or pests and diseases? Need a maintenance plan? A garden consultation may be the option for you. This is when I will walk around the garden or discuss with you the area of concern in detail and then send through a summary of suggestions or agreed actions or for example a planting plan. This is completed on an hourly basis.
