Consultationconsultation


To plan your garden, we meet several times to listen to your dreams, talk with you about what you would like to achieve and discuss realistic expectations. We combine the patterns of your daily life and seasonal light in your garden with my clarity and confidence. Together we can:



  • Organize your ideas
  • Create a secret garden
  • Select plants to attract birds
  • Provide you seasonal colour
  • Conceal your garden from prying eyes
  • Do spectacular planting in the shade
  • Tailor a design to you budget
  • Create a kid’s play area
  • Design a garden pond
  • Plan a swimming pool
  • Install a bridge
  • Construct a deck
  • Tuck away a treehouse
  • Assemble a waterfall
  • Lay out a patio

Designdesign


I draft scale drawings of the garden. I base the ideas on our conversation, laying out the landings, decks, steps, walks, patios, gazeboes, arbours, pools, retaining walls, planting beds and landscapes lights. Together we review the plans for your approval. I write up the specifications for the contractors and review all the suggested materials with you.


Management and constructionmanagement and construction


I ask qualified contractors to bid on the work and recommend hiring the appropriate firm. I set up a formal contract between you and the contractor which I administer on your behalf. I provide you with worry-free construction management. I'll look after the day-to-day complexities and keep you up-to-date on what's happening so you can concentrate on the rest of your life. I review and approve the work in stages before you pay for it.


And finally The gardengarden


I look over the finished garden with you, answering questions and providing advice. The guarantees will be in place and I am available in the future to help or consult should the need arise. Now you can start enjoying the garden and all the dreams you have for it.
