GARDEN DESIGN BY MATT GEORGE

INSPIRATIONAL LANDSCAPE AND PLANTING DESIGN

Established Garden Design Company Working in the Chilterns and North London

 

 

 

HOW WE WORK

Good design - whether hard landscaping or planting only works with the right materials, used and put together in a cohesive way.

An eye for detail is critical and we have built up a strong network of suppliers and sub-contractors who can build and execute a high quality finish at the right price

Plants are of course critical and we work with a number of top trade nurseries to source plants, trees and hedges that will thrive and look stunning in your garden and can be provided at discounted prices from typical garden centre retail prices.

The process we go through to achieve your garden aspirations for a full design implementation:

Initial Consultation

This will involve discussions about your planned use and function of the garden, what you like and dislike,  your budget and your preferred style of planting and the features you want included.

Site Survey

We will take a full set of measurements of your garden and based on these, prepare a full design brief and site analysis.

Presentation Drawings

Once the design brief has been agreed, we will prepare a set of presentation drawings incorporating the outline design of the plan. This will include an outline arial plan, perspective drawings and side elevations plus a mood board of planting ideas and materials so you can really visulise how the design will work. We work both with CAD (computer aided design) or hand drawn/rendering work and work to a client's preference, depending on the project    

Planting Plan

Once you are happy with the outline design, we prepare a detailed planting plan showing placement of plant  varieties, quantities, spacing and a planting schedule so we can get quotes for suppliers.       

Construction Drawings            

Next we prepare detailed construction drawings including specifications for materials on which the  garden quotation will be based.           

Project Management

We will then work with you to put together a project plan and timeline and send out the specifications to a select group of landscapers that we work with.  Landscaping is a specialised area, we will manage the project to give you peace of mind and ensure that the project remains within budget, on time and delivers the expected results. The build is reviewed and approved and we complete the design with the planting to the agreed plans.
