This involves an initial site visit to view the garden and to discuss your requirements for the site. Consultation includes identifying your personal tastes and style and the potential of the garden space. Another important factor that is taken into account is the future use of the garden e.g. to include entertaining and family needs. If you wish to proceed with the design, a client brief is drawn up detailing your requirements and the design fee. This is dependent on the size of your garden and the services required.
