What is the garden you dream of? Understanding your vision informs my approach to designing the garden you will most enjoy with your family and friends. I’ll ask you to walk me through your space, talk to me about your lifestyle, and give me a sense of how you see yourself happiest in your outdoor living area. From there, I’ll create a design brief, organise the survey, and plan the garden that you’ve inspired, with the goal of inspiring you in return.
After we align on your vision, the technical work begins. I’ll create drawings, source the plants and flowers that will thrive in your borders, and prepare detailed descriptions of every specimen.
Depending on the size and scale of the design, I will employ directly or recommend the best landscapers. In some cases, I will do the planting myself. In others, I’ll supervise a team of plantsmen. In every case, the elements of the build will be coordinated and monitored by me personally to ensure the best possible start for a garden that will surprise and delight you for years to come.
One of the many joys of your garden is the care and maintenance of your gorgeous plants. Of course, some clients have more time to indulge in gardening than others, so I’ll create a plan customised to suit your lifestyle.
Your design comes complete with a detailed maintenance plan that lists each individual plant, a photograph, and a comprehensive description of how and when to care for it. Whether you’re a novice or skilled gardener, I’ll see to it you are secure with expert guidance for the long term upkeep of your entire garden.
I will return at least four times during the first year to ensure that your garden is growing as expected and answer any questions that you may have at each visit. I am happy to include this service in the design and implementation fee, as it gives me great satisfaction to see our work come to life.
