Services can be obtained on an individual basis or as a
full design package:
A consultation is for clients who feel they don’t need a full
design package. This approach is appropriate for individuals
who are interested in installing and maintaining their own garden.
Clients receive professional advice on an hourly basis. A
written list of suggested plants, a written report and/or drawings
can be prepared upon request.
This planting plan is hand drawn to scale and is useful for renovating
existing planting beds or to create new planting areas. This
level of service is appropriate for clients who want their gardens
to be updated and don’t require a full design package.
Full Design Package:
A full design package consists of numerous steps as follows:
Base and Site Analysis Plan – this
plan is drawn to scale and will note details such as existing plants
to be kept, drainage conditions, sunlight exposure, views, etc.
Concept Plan – this plan will become
the key design document. The concept plan is based upon the
clients’ wishes, functional needs and the home’s architecture.
It will set out the flow of the garden, the concept of the use of
the space together with location of key elements such as planting
beds, focal points, water features, etc. An idea board, which
contains photos and drawings, is usually presented with the concept
plan in order to help the client visualize the new garden design.
Planting Plan – the planting plan is
based upon the approved concept plan. This will be the plan
used as the blueprint for your garden installation.
