The Design Process

After the initial meeting to discuss your requirements, we agree on my brief and fees. I then carry out a full survey of your garden or site, with a soil analysis if necessary. I can draw up a sketch layout for discussion and make alterations if needed, before preparing the garden layout plans. I compile a planting plan and other working drawings and documents as required.

On your behalf, I can organise any contractors you may employ, and inspect their work to ensure the effective implementation of the design. Otherwise I can provide you with practical advice on doing the work yourself.

I design gardens of all sizes, but my specialities are the design of low maintenance gardens, meditation and healing gardens, organic, Permaculture and wild life gardens, and gardens for children, elderly and disabled. I am also experienced in the preparation of landscape plans for industrial and housing developments.

On a consultancy basis, I provide expert advice on the care, maintenance and development of both new and mature gardens.
