I strongly believe that a garden no matter its size succeeds in relation to the building, its history, its local vernacular and most importantly the needs of its owner. When taking on a new project my approach consists in primarily listening to the owner's tastes and needs, coming up with a design that complements the house creating a structure that is stylish, elegant and appropriate enhanced by gorgeous planting. Ensuring a year round seasonal interest is key to my design as the immense sensorial pleasures we get from being immersed in them in the middle of summer should be the same in January.
Please see below the steps taken to a new garden.
Ready to change your landscape but unsure where to start? A consultation will let us meet and create a brief derived from your wants and needs.
A moodboard will reflect the brief and the vision of the garden, a good way to see if we are thinking along the same lines.
A masterplan follows together with CGI renders.
Once approved the design is developed further into a set of perspective drawings and construction plans.
A planting plan follows with a full planting list for the client to approve.
I can supervise the construction of the build, if so desired by the client.
I can also help source furniture, pots, sculpture, planters and other elements that will make your garden unique.
Lighting makes a world of a difference. If required I can draw a lighting plan and source all fixtures.
Please contact me if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Our team members have experience and horticultural backgrounds, and we will all be familiar with your unique landscape needs.
I have all necessary licenses and insurance for all of my projects. Larger construction projects require special licenses and certifications, and I have trusted members of the landscaping community that I work with for those special cases.
I can do all kinds of landscaping, from small projects to bigger ones. Just get in touch and we can discuss your needs.
Pricing is bespoke for each project. The initial consultation is free. From then on you can choose how much involvement you want from me. Whether you want me to just draw the masterplan and moodboards. Maybe you just need new planting plans or if you would like me to supervise construction and even pick the furniture.
