How I work on individual gardens varies from project to project depending on my clients' requirements and the demands of each site. However, the process nearly always includes most, if not all, of the key stages outlined below.
Initial consultation and briefing. Discussion of design fees.
Written proposal describing process and associated design fees.
Full site survey and analysis.
Initial sketch design proposals.
Detailed plans and specifications.
Planting plans and plant schedules.
Site visits to oversee construction of garden.
Supply and set out trees, hedges, shrubs, and herbaceous plants.
Supply garden structures, artefacts, furniture, pots, statuary, etc.
Advise on after-care and maintenance.
