Our design process begins with one-on-one consultation, this meeting helps us to discover your wishes, needs, and goals. By walking your site to take measurements and observe conditions, we also identify the assets and limitations of the landscape.
After the consultation our designs begin with a water colour painting that integrates our first impressions of the landscape with the wishes of the client. This is then adapted into a technical drawing outlining the specifications and parameters of the project. Finally, the client receives either a hand drawn site design or a 3D computer-generated image of the design depending on their preference and the project.
We use an integrated landscape planning model as the basis of all our designs. This model allows us to consider all the factors that will affect the success of a design and lets us take into account the environmental and economic factors that are so often forgotten in traditional landscape design.
