Our clients expect the highest standards, and these standards are reflected in our uncompromising levels of service. The gardens we create involve a personal and fruitful collaboration between garden designer and client.

The initial concept stage is all about establishing the overall look of the garden, interrogating the architecture and creating the narrative around the landscape or garden design. This is the complete vision for your garden: through plans and illustrations you will be able to see how your proposed garden works; how the space flows, and how it sits in relation to the house and its surroundings.

We experiment with different types of media to convey our creative ideas, but sometimes you just can’t beat a hand-drawn sketch or a watercolour. The next stage is to progress the sketch proposal into a detailed proposal showing planting and landscaping plus details of any bespoke elements such as pergolas or water features.
