Garden Design

Every garden is different as is every gardener therefore depending upon your level of need, I can help you with:

a) Advice on design, planting & maintenance
b) Planting plans for part or all of your garden
c) Garden design for part or all of your garden
d) Hands on pruning tuition
e) Exploration and development of your design ideas.

I have long established links with The Gardens Group, 3 garden centres in Dorset and Somerset.  The group offers a full range of quality plants and excellent customer service.


Consultancy
Tailored to your needs and to your garden, this takes place in your garden beginning with a one hour session.  This is often enough to give you direction and to get you started along the path to you getting more enjoyment out of your garden however this initial consultation may lead to more detailed work.

Design services
More detailed help involves my design services.  The design process begins with a detailed assessment of the garden, a discussion about your needs and requirements from the garden.  From this I work to marry your brief with the constraints and the opportunities offered by the site.
The preliminary meeting is followed up by letter, summarizing the main points of the brief, how the design will be approached and how much it will cost.  There is a fee for this stage in the design process however it is refundable should you proceed onto the full detailed design.
A detailed survey of the garden is the next stage followed by concept sketches, once agreed upon these form the basis for the full, detailed working design.
