The garden design process is split into 3 key stages:
The primary site visit enables us to assess the opportunities and challenges of the site as well as all the potential it has to offer. Here we will look at a number of things including aspect, soil type, surrounding structures, trees and so on. We will take detailed measurements along with some photos.
We then gather a brief from you the client to figure out the type of outdoor space you would like. This enables us to implement these guidelines when drawing up a design. These include things like garden function; be it a utility area, entertainment area or play area and other preferences like style of garden, colour preferences and so on, followed by an approximate budget allowable. Once all this information is gathered, we go to the drawing board.
2. gARDEN DESIGN AND MOOD BOARD
A detailed concept plan is drafted outlining both hard and soft landscaping elements. This may take many forms depending on the size of the garden but is usually a 2D scaled drawing. It is accompanied by a mood board containing images of the various materials, plants features and finishes.
A full budget will follow detailing the cost of all associated materials and labour required for the project to be carried out by Golden Grove Landscapes.
3. MasterPlan and Contract
After the concept plan has been reviewed, the master plan will then be drawn up including any necessary changes and a detailed planting plan if required.
From here a date can be set for the commencement of construction once the contract has been signed and the initial deposit has been paid.
