Having visited your garden for the first time, by the end of the session with you we will have decided how radically the garden needs to be changed. After the consultation, I will be able to prepare a full quotation for the design work, specifying the process and costs.
What follows in the design process is a full site survey incorporating analysis of the soil, aspect and constraints, such as features to be retained, drains and service cables. I will also advise on which plants will grow in specific situations, such as heavy clay, dry shade, or windy sites.
Having completed the survey a drawing is made incorporating existing features to be retained or changed. I will then draw an overlay proposal for your new garden and consult with you to ensure you are entirely happy with the layout before completing the drawing.
You may be planning to build your garden yourself or you may need a landscaper to do it, in which case Katherine Crouch Garden Design can put you in touch with several who have built gardens to our designs, although the choice of landscaper is entirely up to you.
I can provide a project monitoring service while building is in progress to ensure that the design is realised as planned and to help solve any unforeseen problems. We haven’t yet dug up any plague graves or Roman villas but there’s always a first time…
We source all our plants from local wholesalers at competitive prices including rare and unusual plants and large specimen trees and shrubs.
