To ensure he fully understands your requirements and to appreciate your unique location, Chris starts all design projects with an onsite consultation.
This consultation allows you to meet one another and discussion your ideas face to face, so you can be assured that Chris is the right designer for your project.
Following the consultation Chris will write to confirm your discussions and design ideas, and will provide a breakdown of the costs for the various stages of your project.
At this stage Chris will require a site survey or help you commission a survey which will provide him with accurate dimensions of your scheme.
After approval from you to proceed and receipt of the site survey, Chris produces scale sketches of the initial ideas and proposals. He presents these to you and shows how he has explored the design parameters.
This stage is an open discussion and Chris likes to take on board as many of your comments to help hone the design.
Once a design concept is agreed, a scale master plan, or plans, are produced indicating character areas, planting types,and proposed surfaces.
The detailed plans for both hard landscaping and soft landscaping aspects of the garden are produced after the master plan has been approved and signed off.
These scale drawings detail the ground preparation, remedial works, planting species and planting techniques for entire site or partial schemes.
In addition Chris can assist with the appointment of a Landscape Contractor, as well plant sourcing and overall project management. These areas would typically be discussed as the project advances.
