Design Process at Concept Garden Design

Design Process


Garden survey

A detailed survey of your garden is carried out to enable us to draw up an equally detailed scale plan of the existing site. This will show the house outline, boundaries, existing trees and shrubs plus any features that you wish to retain. We will also carry out a soil test to establish what plants will grow there.

Concept/draft plans

An initial proposal is produced to give a clear idea of the intended design and is presented to you. The plan shows hard and soft landscaping areas but will not give specific details such as type of paving or plants. It gives you the opportunity to discuss the ideas and make modifications based on the original brief, resulting in a design tailored to your own preferences.

Final plan

A comprehensive plan showing hard and soft landscaping areas, including dimensions for setting out and details of the materials to be used. It is an overall view of the design drawn to scale, which may be coloured to give some idea of colour schemes and finished to a high artistic standard.

Specification/construction drawings

Produced to assist a landscaper to correctly construct elements of the hard landscaping.


If you would like to obtain comparable quotes from three reputable landscape companies to carry out the construction of the garden we will prepare a tendering pack to send out to prospective contractors. Alternatively, we can pass the drawings on to a reputable landscaper and obtain a quotation on your behalf.

Project management

Inspection and monitoring of the construction and planting can be arranged where a contractor has been employed, particularly if you have little available time to oversee this yourself. So you can relax while everything comes together.
