Design Services

Our design studio, located in the Cotswold’s, works with private and corporate clients throughout the U.K. and internationally.

We produce bespoke schemes for all types of clients and settings - from town gardens to large country estates and from hotel resorts to public gardens - including listed and world heritage sites.

We work hand in hand with architects so that the landscape for a new build or remodeling of existing buildings are created in tandem to provide a holistic and cohesive scheme.

Design Process

Initial Site Meeting & Survey

To ensure we fully understand your requirements, and to appreciate your unique location, we start all design projects with an onsite consultation. This consultation allows for the discussion of ideas face to face and for us to view your landscape and garden setting. Following the consultation we write to confirm your discussions together with a breakdown of the costs for the various stages of your project.

Concept Proposal

After approval from you to proceed and receipt of a site survey, we produce scale sketches of the initial ideas and proposals. We present these to you and demonstrate how we have explored the design parameters.

This stage is an open discussion and we like to take on board as many of your comments to help hone the design.

Masterplan Design

Once a design concept is agreed, a scale master plan, or plans, are produced indicating character areas, planting types,and proposed surfaces.

Construction & Planting Plans

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.

Onsite implementation & Project Management

We 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.
