How it Works

How to receive your postal garden design: (for individual beds, see note below this list):

  1. I confirm what you want through discussions with you and through receiving your emailed Garden design briefing form.
  2. You would send me photos and a plan of the site, with dimensions, so we know exactly what space we are dealing with, including slopes. Use this guide to help you: How to Measure Your Garden.
  3. I draw up a scale plan of the existing site and then brainstorm on ideas to produce some options, with rough plans and sketches.
  4. You decide which option to develop and any initial changes you would like.
  5. I produce a layout plan to scale of the option you have chosen. See Costs page for details of costs.
  6. I can then do more detailed structural and working drawings if necessary, to brief your contractor more precisely, as well as maintenance schedules to assist in garden upkeep. I can also produce a planting plan, showing plant names and how many of each are needed. Planting and maintenance advice can be added. Again, see the Costs page for details.

For a single bed or feature this process would be much shorter. I would send you outline ideas, work with your feedback then send you the final planting plan, for example, with plant calendars if required. These are very useful to show what colours will appear when, during the year.
