The first step is to conduct a detailed site analysis and to formulate a brief. This is normally carried out during a couple of meetings with our client.
We photograph the site and discuss design details in depth with the client, or if the site is large, a full land survey is carried out.
We then prepare a master sketch plan in CAD and, usually, also in a hand-rendered format, a CGI render, perspective drawing and a mood board which illustrate how the garden will look.
Once the design is approved by the client, we prepare specifications and working drawings from which the contractors can prepare a quotation for the landscaping works.
Finally, we prepare a planting plan and full planting list for client approval.
