Timeless gardens for modern living

How do we make new gardens and landscapes?

Every locality is different and we work with local contractors, craft workers and plant suppliers to ensure that the materials and plants used work beautifully in their wider environment. 

Each garden comes together in an individual way; however, all projects involve four phases of work.  

1.    Brief and Feasibility
We start by meeting you to discuss the brief for your project, visiting your property and analysing the site. 

On larger projects we then prepare a feasibility report and initial estimates of costs to discuss and agree with you before preparing initial proposals.

2.     Survey and Design
Working with your brief and a site survey we develop initial ideas and designs, and prepare a design proposal for discussion with you. 

When the design approach and ideas for the project have been agreed, formal drawings are created to help finalise the design and we prepare a masterplan.

3.    Tender, Construction and Planting
We prepare all necessary technical drawings, a full specification and scope of works. 

Using the prepared construction documents package we run a tender of contractors for you to keep costs focused. 

We oversee the construction process and planting to ensure that the completed works are delivered to the highest standards.

4.     Maintenance
Careful maintenance is essential for the success of the garden created for you. We can help recruit and collaborate with gardeners and provide them with maintenance guidelines to ensure quality maintenance and appropriate future planting.
