Creative Solutions

We listen, observe and question, seeking to truly understand your dream. Our journey will take us on an exploration, observing the natural characteristics of your space and revealing its hidden potential. Together we will combine all of your aspirations to cultivate a detailed design brief that will define and encompass the aesthetical appearance and capture the emotions upon which the detailed design can evolve.

Intelligent Design

Our research and development enables us to provide you with inspiring solutions at every stage of the design process. Uncovering these possibilities enables us to present intelligent design ideas that reveal your garden in a new light. Our concepts are then presented through state of the art rendering software, allowing you to truly understand and visualise your garden like never before.

Crafted With Care

Every project presents a unique approach. Through meticulous management skills and commitment to detail, we are able to transcend your vision into reality. It is important to us that the same meticulous level of detail is delivered from concept to completion, producing the most refined and sophisticated levels of finish to your garden.

Telephone consultation

We usually request a quick telephone call to gain a little understanding of your aspirations, this provides us with the opportunity to explain our approach, process and the potential investment required for designing your garden before arranging a site visit.

Design consultation

Walking through your garden we will discuss the strengths and weakness of the site and how you visualise using the space. Understanding these aspects enables us to help you to realise potential opportunities we can uncover. This information acts as the foundation to write a detailed design brief, which provides us with a framework for when we commence the design phase.

Site survey

Whether large or small, a site survey is an essential part of the process. This document provides us with the necessary information outlining the boundaries, surface levels, utilities and permanent structures that need to be taken into account when designing your new garden. It also allows us to calculate all the aspects of the design to ensure we are utilising the space and budget to its fullest potential.

Concept design

Once we have carried out the site survey, we can start the research and development process which guides us to start visualising how your garden may look and feel. Once we have carefully considered all the necessary aspects of your brief we will start to formulate a design concept. The initial concept, supported by a mood board and presented to you through state of the art rendering software, acts as a visual interpretation of the brief, illustrating the proposed layout, materials, colours and planting style.

Detailed design

Once we have established and agreed all the details relating to the concept, we will then produce a series of detailed plans which illustration all the necessary information that supports the construction phase of your garden. These plans allow us to calculate an accurate bills of quantities and work schedule to ensure that every penny of your investment is being used wisely.

Construction

We take pride in our delivery by maintaining the highest standards of craftsmanship through innovative construction methods, attention to detail and a commitment to exquisite levels of finish.

Every project presents a unique approach and requires craftsmen with multi- disciplinary skills, knowledge and problem-solving mindset to minimises risk and delay to the projects programme. Our construction team’s passion and commitment to every project enables them to transcend your vision into reality in a controlled and measured manner, producing you the most refined and sophisticated finish to your garden.

Consultation

The consultation is where our journey begins. Walking through the garden we can discuss what works and what doesn’t, considering elements to retain and elements to change. Through observing the lie of the land, we will advise and offer suggestions to consider when defining your brief.

Once we have walked the garden, we will help you to visualise how you intend on using the space, what features you would like to include and potential opportunities we can uncover. This information acts as the foundation to write a detailed design brief, which provides us with a framework for when we commence the design phase.

Site survey

Whether your garden is large or small, a site survey is an essential part of the process. This document provides us with the necessary information outlining architectural elevations, boundaries, surface levels, utilities and permanent structures that need to be taken into account when designing your new garden. It also allows us to calculate all the aspects of the design to ensure we are utilising the space and budget to its fullest potential.

Concept plan & 3D visuals

Once we have carried out the site survey, we can start the research and development process which guides us to start visualising how your garden may function in relation to the location and against any surrounding architecture. Once we have carefully considered all the necessary aspects of your project we will start to formulate your garden design concept. The initial concept, supported by a mood board and presented to you through state of the art rendering software, acts as a visual interpretation of the brief, illustrating the proposed layout, materials, colours and planting style.

Presentation plan

Once the concept phase has been completed and signed off, we will provide a presentation plan which depicts the general arrangement of the proposed design in relation to the site and it’s architecture. Identified within the plan are the areas of hard and soft landscaping, related materials specifications and their quantities. Measurements indicated at key points also provide clear communication to contractors of finished surface levels.

Construction plans

The nature of bespoke design usually result in bespoke features that may have not been built before. Complex bespoke design elements require additional construction drawings, providing contractors with accurate building methods and materials. These elements may include bespoke furniture, structures, water features, lighting or hard landscaping arrangements

Planting Plans

Our view is in protecting existing wildlife habitats and providing new and improved habitats. Based upon local ecology reports and research, our planting plans will be designed with the aim of enhancing the local biodiversity. The provided plans will indicate chosen specimens and the reasons why we have suggested them. The plans will indicate positioning of specified planting within their allocated spaces, along with names, quantities and sizes.

Lighting plan

Adaptive garden lighting creates atmosphere, extends functionality and provides safety and security. Lighting plans inform contractors of the proposed circuitry layout, types of lights and positions, cable lines, junctions and control boxes. They also act as a guide for any future developments and ground digging as a part of garden maintenance requirements.

Irrigation plan

Protecting your personal ecosystem that we have created is crucial. Rain water harvesting systems can provide a valuable source of water for your gardens irrigation system, protecting plant life which support habitats. Automated irrigation systems are also programmable to come on at chosen times of the day, this not only saves water, but provides peace of mind if your planting is unoccupied for any length of time.

Setting out plan

The setting out plans indicate the measurements and positioning of the designated hard and soft landscaping areas. These plans enable contractors to position and layout the relative areas of the design within the sites boundaries, ensuring the spaces work proportionately with one another as intended.

Planning

Architecture that is listed or located within conservation areas will require submitting plans to local authorities for building consent. We appreciate these processes can be time consuming so we offer a service to relieve the burden by acting on your behalf.

Tender documents

For projects not undertaken by our in house construction team, a tender pack will be produced in order to gain comparable quotes from multiple contractors. They receive a full drawing package, bills of quantities and specifications. Following a site visit they provide an itemised quotation which we will analyse and then produce a written tender report highlighting any concerns or merits of each.

Construction

We offer a full turn-key service taking you from concept to completion. Each project has a tailored approach which is delivered by exceptional people who care and are committed to a service of excellence.

Our construction and delivery team have spent years honing their trades, enabling us to deliver you the most refined finishes one could expect.
