It’s a good idea to start your garden design with a home consultation and a blank sheet of paper.
A stroll through the garden will allow us to grasp the nature of the space we are dealing with, which gives us an idea what changes will be possible.
During the garden consultation, we will approach the planning process in a series of uncomplicated steps:
- A feel for your property, your vision and desires
- How to make the best use of space
- Developing a garden style
- Applying your wish list and establishing a framework
- Understanding the principle of planting
