That’s me and my dad, Charl. We love plants and the art of garden-making. Our dog Jasper loves gardens too, but mostly for taking naps.
The Design Process
Whether you plan to enhance just part of your garden or transform the whole area we can tailor our garden design service to suit your requirements. The design process is briefly outlined below.
1. Onsite consultation
During this initial onsite consultation, we define the scope, brief, and budget of the project.
2. Design proposal
Following the initial meeting, a summary of the project is sent along with a fee proposal for the design work.
3. Concept plan
A conceptual plan is developed for the general layout of the garden to clarify how spaces will be arranged.
4. Design development
Once the concept is finalised, additional documentation can be developed to bring your garden to life. This can include a master plan, planting plan and schedule, working drawings and other construction details.
5. Quotation for implementation
Following the completion of your design, a quote for construction and implementation will be handed over for your consideration.
We implement your garden design, along with any additional specialist contractors as required.
Once the garden is complete, we can provide specialised garden management on a regular or ad hoc basis.
