site survey
& analysis

On a modest sized site, such as a residential garden, a survey will be completed to accurately record all relevant data from the site. This will include general measurements, key features within the boundary such as existing trees, buildings, level changes and any features a client may wish to keep. On more complicated or larger sites a surveyor will be employed to complete a full topographical survey.

Concept design

This first phase of design is where we convert your requirements and our ideas into drawings. We develop a design or series of designs that broadly outlines the proposed scheme. This is often presented to you through plans, 3D views, fly-through animations and reference images.

detailed design

After the concept design has been approved a set of detailed drawings will be produced. These drawings will define material choice, plant species selection and will allow project costs to be gathered from construction contractors. These drawings can typically include an annotated masterplan, detailed construction drawings, construction specifications, planting plans and 3D rendered imagery.

for construction

The detailed design drawings can be sent out to selected competent contractors to gain project costs, these quotations can be checked by us with our recommendations then being made to the client.

planning applications

We produce drawings suitable to meet local authorities planning requirements including full planning permissions and discharge of planning conditions. Typically, we will provide plans, elevations, 3D rendered views as well as maintenance and management schedules.


During the construction regular visits can be made to monitor progress to ensure the project is built as agreed by the client and as per the design. Guidance and support is offered to the contractor and our client.
