All gardens require a site survey in order for the designer to get to know the site thoroughly. Measurements are taken, garden aspect is noted, existing features are noted, soil samples are taken for analysis of PH and quality and lots of photos are taken for reference. From this survey an accurate, scaled drawing is produced.
Presentation of Proposed Design
An initial design is drawn up and presented to the client, outlining Catherine’s ideas for the new garden. This proposal will include; the shape of the borders, hard landscaping, (patios, paths, ponds, decking etc) and type of plants to be used. Any feedback from the client is collected at this stage, ready for final design.
