Design process

The initial consultation is of course complimentary and is an informal meeting giving you time to view Julia’s portfolio and to briefly discuss your project. From then she works on a commission basis moving through the various design stages before the final design is presented.

  • Initial consultation.
  • Detailed client brief.
  • Detailed survey of the garden plot.
  • Two rendered concept plans to your brief.
  • Chosen concept plan amended to finalise the plan.
  • Planting plan which names every plant, quantity and sizes.
  • Construction detail (if necessary).
  • Quote to build the finalised design.
  • Maintenance schedule (if necessary).

Garden Design is a personal concept and we are therefore pleased to be able to accommodate each client as a distinctive entity, so originality is assured. Every plan is hand drawn and rendered making it individual to you.
