After surveying your garden and producing scaleplans, we will produce a series of 'sketch' plans.
These will be broad in scope, exploring different ideas, budgets and planting styles, to get a dialog started between client and designer. These initial sketch ideas will be developed into a large, ink and wash 'concept plan', supported with scanned reference pictures, once a design direction has been agreed. Some samples of 'sketch' plans are shown below. Scroll to the end to see a couple of 'concept' plans - other small details of 'concept' plans can be seen on the other portfolio pages.
