Step 4 – Build Preparation

Construction details – once you’ve approved the Outline Plan I will prepare all the Construction details. These are the working drawings that explain how the garden will be constructed. These essential drawings are critical to controlling the finished appearance of the garden and the cost.

Planting plan – working drawings that plot the plant selections and the placement of each plant. A working map to position every single plant so nothing is left to chance. Carefully selected planting to create stunning compositions, appropriate to the soil and aspect so that the garden continues to go from strength to strength.

Scope of works and specification – a uniquely prepared document to assist the construction of the garden. Materials to be used are specified and methods of construction described. This document is used for the competitive tendering.

Tender process – I work with a range of landscapers, contractors, and builders and can put you in touch with companies known to me and best suited to the challenges of your project. I can prepare and send the documentation (all the drawings and the scope of works) to the selected landscape contractors and meet them on site to answer their questions, enabling them to quote for the build fairly and accurately.
