The Garden Design Process

To ensure your total satisfaction, Sue remains closely involved throughout process, from conception, through construction to completion.

This initial visit normally takes around two hours.

She will evaluate the site, consider its aspect and conditions, and get an idea of your budget. 

Step 2

Sue provides costings and timings for your new garden design and accompanying mood board.  Once complete, she will return to go through the design concept with you.

Step 3: Design Implementation

Sue can introduce you to an appropriate landscaper who will provide a quote for the proposed works.  She will then provide a planting plan and quotation for supply and planting, returning at end of landscaping to undertake this last stage.

A professionally planned and designed garden ultimately saves wasting time and money on avoidable mistakes, as every stage of work is specified and completed in accordance with the design plan. This is particularly helpful if you intend to complete the garden in phases, or as and when budget allows.

Drawing on her extensive garden design experience, natural creativity and design expertise, Sue will work with you to maximise your garden’s potential within your preferred budget and bring your chosen vision to life.
