Think about how you would like to use your garden. Perhaps for entertaining friends, informal parties or BBQs in the summer? A place for the kids to play or maybe just a place for you to potter around, read a book or catch a quick forty winks in the sun? Thinking carefully about what you would like from your garden is a key starting point. What do you currently like about your garden if anything, and what would you be keen to see the back of? Do you have the time and inclination to maintain it or would you prefer it to be as low maintenance as possible? Last but not least, think about how much you would be prepared to spend on your garden. Being clear in your own mind about your budget is a critical part of the whole process.
The first meeting at your home will take about an hour and a half. At that meeting we will not only walk round your garden but will also discuss in detail what you want from it and your likes and dislikes on everything from types of plants to colour schemes. This allows us to put together a summary of what you want and need from your new garden. We will send that in writing to you together with our fee and upon acceptance of that we can move on and start the design process.
"We hired Lisa for a garden redesign. Lisa created a detailed design and then gave me pictures on a mood board so I could visualise the result. The outcome is wonderful. One thing we particularly liked was Lisa's ability to break down everything into a menu of options. The flexibility is fantastic."
