First contact
Phone or email to arrange a convenient time for garden designer Rachel Mathews to visit, both weekday and weekend appointments are available. Once we’ve arranged a time, an appointment letter and questionnaire will be sent to you so you can get some thoughts down on paper before we meet.

Initial meeting
This is an in depth discussion to discover your tastes and discuss the style of garden you wish to achieve. A portfolio of completed gardens will be incorporated into the discussion to show the kind of results that we can produce. If you have lots of ideas this process will help refine what you do want or if you have no ideas at all, it will enable you to get a clearer idea of what can be done.

The design
When we’ve discussed your design needs a scale plan will be drawn up. This plan shows the garden layout with suggested materials as well as perspective drawings enabling you to see how the garden will look from certain view points, this can be especially useful if you are not used to reading plans. The design pack will include 3 plan copies.

Planting plan
This will show the position and quantity of plants required. Each planting plan is designed to suit your needs, location and garden style. A laminated booklet is produced for each scheme which shows colour photos of the plants along with a general guide on plant care as well as information on height, flowering and other relevant information.

The quote
Once you are happy with the design we can then quote to build the garden. We can quote to build your garden from start to finish in one go or it can be done in phases that suit you.

The build
When you have accepted the quote we will issue you with a start date. Rachel, the designer works closely with the construction team during the construction process so that any adjustments needed during the build, work within the design.
