TO MAKE THIS EASY, iF I WAS MARY BERRY AND I WAS MAKING YOU A CAKE!
WHAT KIND OF CAKE DO YOU WANT.? ( SURVEY)
PART1 INDEPTH QUESTIONNAIRE. To look at your lifestyle,needs,personality.
Where will you be in ten years time.
Indeed you, as the garden is a reflection of your inner self and is a one time fix, you cant change the wallpaper if you dont like it?.
The questionnaire forms a wishlist of how you want your outside space to evolve, and includes dreams and wishes for the future .
Indeed ten years ahead. Including extensions to the property future plans aspirations. ( THE WISH LIST IN YOUR LEFT HAND ).
After a walk around the garden and surrounding areas with the client. we then complete part 2
Part 2 A TECHNICAL SURVEY.
Is completed this includes. Good and bad views, Topography, Level survey. Existing planting. or areas to be built on in the future, added into plans.
Soil tests ,Measurements, House Orientation, Visable underground or overhead services, Noise levels, Privacy, etc., notes are made together with many photographs of the site.
This is a normal survey in the average garden up to a third of acre.
(REALITY IN THE RIGHT HAND.)
PART1.WISHLIST AND DREAMS( LEFT HAND) PART 2. WHAT YOU HAVE REALITY (RIGHT HAND) PUT THEM TOGETHER TO FORM THE ESSENCE OF THE DESIGN.
On difficult and larger sites we recommend a site survey undertaken by a local surveyor, this is much cheaper than us undertaken this task.
We liase with the surveyor, should boundary or technical site problems become an issue.
We work with specialist surveyors and equipment throughout the country in resolving any issues.(ie encrouchment by a protected tree on a boundary that you are planning to have an extension to the house) just one example.
THE COMPLEATED SURVEY AND INFORMATION FORMS THE BACKBONE OF THE DESIGN.
For a garden up to an third of an acre no survey fees are charged but a fee is charged for travel expenses.
