Due to the huge success of our garden design services we decided to form a new company focusing purely on garden design and consultancy services. This company is called Tapestry Design Studios, which still employs the same talented team and is also run by Chris and Paul Baker.
Since the incorporation of Tapestry Design Studios the team has designed gardens in Essex, Suffolk and London directly for Holland Landscapes and other landscape companies.
There are different services we offer for garden design. You can have your garden fully designed following the design process below or we can design a small area of your garden, a planting bed, patio area or pond for example. We can also offer construction drawings and full specifications as an additional service.
Already have your own landscaper? We are more than happy to provide a design only service.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Once you make contact with us we will arrange a time to visit you to discuss your requirements. At this stage it is really important to talk about budgets. Even a small garden can have a vast range of budget ideas so knowing what you would like to spend would ensure we can design and build a garden to your budget.
From our initial visit with you we will write to you with a design proposal. This proposal will contain:
- A quotation for design fees.
- A design brief.
- A budget to build the planned garden.
- Timescales for the design and the build.
- Site Survey & Analysis
Once the design proposal has been agreed a survey will be carried out of your garden. This will be carried out by us or a surveyor if the garden is large or complex. The garden will also be analysed for items such as drainage, soil type and existing features.
Now we have a survey drawing it is time to start the design work. With the information we have gained from the initial visit and design brief we work on designing your individual garden design. Once the outline of the garden design is complete we will arrange a consultation to discuss the progress of the design and discuss any final revisions needed for the final plan. Materials will be discussed
You will receive a copy of the plan in colour and duplicate copies will be produced to be used for pricing and constructing your garden. For an additional charge the coloured plan can be framed.
