We survey and analyse all parts of your garden, gathering factual information which enables us to create a precise scale plan with accurate physical details.In the studio we work with the scale plan and your Design Brief, created earlier, to develop your design. This is presented to you as the Design Layout - your bird's eye view of your new garden. The Design Layout includes descriptions of the character of different parts of the garden, including planting areas. It shows hard landscaping (paths, terraces, steps, etc.) and soft landscaping (key shrubs, plants or trees) all of which contribute to the structure of your new garden. It recommends materials to be used in the new design. Should you wish it, the Design Layout can be presented with sketches, 3D drawings or perspectives.
