Our design process begins with a consultation with the client so that we can begin to gather information relevant to the project whether it is a small garden, a park or a larger scheme such as  an amenity garden. We use specialists in many areas to ensure that the project is carried out according to local by-laws and regulations but the first presentation is usually a drawing laying out the project in a way that is easy to understand at a glance. Once the design decisions have been made detailed plans are prepared along with estimates for carrying out the work. Every stage of a scheme is closely followed in particular with regard to details such as lighting, hard surfaces, planting and maintenance.
