Stage1 600X600

Feasibility Studies and Garden Consultation

Feasibility studies are usually standalone documents that help to inform the design or layout of a development or garden design.

Our most successful projects have developed either from a feasibility study or from an early stage collaboration, which helps to successfully position, integrate and inspire the project. 

We also offer a similar garden consultation service to help our Clients make the most of their gardens.

Concept Design

We explore various design options during this stage.  Our ideas and presentational style are free flowing and aim to inspire.  Our work is suitable for use in support of a pre-planning application or an outline planning application.


Developed Design

Our concept design work is fixed and developed during this stage.  We work closely with the Client and the design team to develop and illustrate the landscape or garden design.  This work can be used to support a full planning application.

This is the stage during which phased elements of the garden or development may be highlighted in the case of a staged implementation.

Stage4 600X600

Detail Design

For this stage we produce detailed layout and construction drawings, which will be tailored to suit the project in question.  For example when we are part of a design team for a commercial project, we will produce an NBS specification and schedule.  For domestic garden projects we will include the specifications within the drawings and produce image boards to illustrate planting proposals.

Our detail design information can either form part of a tender package to be tendered by others, or we can manage the whole tender process ourselves in conjunction with agreed landscape contractors.

Construction

During the construction stage we will supervise the works on site and are accustomed to working with standard construction contracts.  We work well with the design team and are used to supervising landscape construction works.

For garden projects we will work directly with the contractor to oversee the landscape works on site on behalf of our client.

Stage6 1200X500

Establishment

The critical part of any landscape project is the establishment and management of the finished scheme, without which it will not succeed.

We have practical experience of and detailed knowledge about what is required in order to get a landscape to establish and thrive.  We can provide written and illustrated management plans as well as NBS maintenance specification. We also offer informal guidance with briefings of operational staff and help desk back-up.
