Garden Design

We produce a number of drawings from conceptual work through to technical design and specifications; a list of our typical services is outlined below:

Standard services

  • Conceptual Design
  • Outline Design
  • Detailed Design
  • Planting Design
  • Technical Design
  • Landscape specifications

Additional services

  • Design Imagery
  • Material palette
  • 3D visualisations

As each garden design project and its requirements are unique, therefore the services and drawing work required will also be unique. It is quite common to produce a single stand-alone drawing, or a combination of one or more of the above items to fully get the design ideas across effectively.

Our full garden design service provides a comprehensive package of work from conceptual design through to technical production. This package is for clients who wish to actively participate in the project management of their own build whilst having the comfort of the security of working from a full-approved package of work.

How it works

It all starts by getting in touch and an initial visit from us; where you have the opportunity to discuss the requirements, aspirations of your project. We will also address budget, statutory and legal obligations if required to fully determine the design brief. At this point the probable list of services and drawings work you require will be discussed and agreed.

A written quotation will be prepared identifying the scope of work along with the likely cost for the production of the design work.

Our fees are generally charged on a time-charged or lump sum basis and are dependent on complexity of the project or brief. All fees are exclusive of VAT & expenses.

After being appointed a detailed survey will be undertaken to provide accurate measurements of all existing external features, structures, vegetation as well as valuable level information. We are generally responsible for the majority of surveys especially for smaller projects, however for larger projects and complex sites a qualified surveyor may undertake a topographic survey if necessary.

We will then produce the necessary design work to fulfil the requirements of the design brief to gain full approval for the design and drawing production. Don’t feel left out, during the design production we will provide drawing work and information along the way to ensure you feel engaged with the process, it’s an ideal opportunity for you to tell us what you like and don’t like.

We use a number of design-based software in the production of most of our drawing work in order to produce accurate, creative, detailed scaled work, and supply these in many formats including printed and multiple digital formats.
