Visualising the design
The concept plan is where your garden design plans begin to emerge. By drawing together all of the information gathered in our initial consultation and the site survey the garden design team will create a simple image to help you see how your garden can be brought to life.
A typical concept plan. This is for a garden near Colchester.

In two short visits our garden design team will have a thorough understanding of
With their heads buzzing with all of that information our designers will take themselves off to a quiet place to map out your garden design plans. This is the magical bit and it’s where the garden designers talent, experience and creativity begins to shape your outdoor space into your dream garden.

With the garden design plans agreed, the next stage in the garden design process is to create a master plan
