What We Do
Urban Gardener will start the process by meeting you on site for an initial consultation. Together we will do a walk around of the site discussing your ideas, requirements, preferences and budget. Following the meeting, we will provide you with a design brief and a breakdown of our fees.
A detailed site survey is required to establish the dimensions of the space, levels and contours, building locations, and existing features and trees. We will then provide you with a detailed site survey drawing.
Once the design brief and site survey have been completed the concept stage can begin. Here, we provide you with hand-drawn scaled layout plans of the space, together with style boards and visuals, outlining the planting and hard landscaping materials we propose.
Following your approval of the outline design we will then draw the plans in detail so that a cost for construction can be submitted. The plans can include a Master Plan, Setting Out Plans, Elevation Drawings and Construction drawings.
We’ll use our expert plant knowledge to provide comprehensive planting schemes which include individual plant names and species, photos, planting locations, and quantities.
The final and most exciting stage of the process: building your new garden! Before construction begins, you will have been provided with a specification document that includes all materials and planting to be used. Together with the detail drawings you can be confident we will build exactly what you’re expecting.
