Site visit

I aim to create a smooth journey for you.

That's why on our initial site visit, I will gather all the information about what you want and need to achieve the garden of your dreams and make it work for you and your family. I might take measurements and we determine a budget. This way you can relax and enjoy the journey.

After the visit, you will receive a written design brief along with a proposal regarding the design fee.

Conceptual Design

It's getting exciting! I want that you can envision your garden in every detail. 

After you approve the design brief and budget, I create a layout plan in 2D including a planting scheme, 3D images of key features, and a video walkthrough.

Remember, it's your garden and it's important to me that to achieve a garden you truly love and that’s why I will adapt throughout the process.  After receiving the first draft of the design you can make changes. The process allows for two revisions.

It's getting more and more exciting! After the revision, you will receive the final plans for your garden including a plant legend, planting scheme, 2d plan view in pdf, lighting plan, 3D images and a final video walk-through in daytime and nighttime.

After groundwork and construction are finalised I can help with sourcing, and even planting your plants or recommend nurseries. I also offer my popular garden furniture package tailored to your needs and space.
