design process

 

FULL DAY OR HALF DAY.CONSULTATION INCLUDING A SITE SURVEY.

This survey visit is divided into two parts.

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.

 

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 1acre.

 

PART1 WISHLIST AND DREAMS  PART2 WHAT YOU HAVE REALITY.

 

On difficult on 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.
