As a design and landscape contractor we offer a stand alone design service or alternatively a 'One stop shop' for the full spectrum of landscape product types, from bespoke design through to construction, planting and aftercare.Opting for a comprehensive service can lead to significant savings for the client when a full project is being implimented. However even if the client only requires a design this can be benificial when it comes to comparing comparable quotes from many differant professional landscapers looking at the one design.
The following is a brief outline of the process leading up to the construction stage of any landscaping project.

Initial Visit:

A meeting is arranged with the client to ascertain your likes and dislike and what elements you need in your garden.
It is helpful at this stage if you have given some thought as to what your basic requirements are e.g. Patio, pond, decking, children’s play area, traditional or contemporary styles, maintenance requirements etc..

Site or Garden Survey:

A full survey and assessment of the site is carried out.

This includes :-

1.Measuring the different levels and distances between existing features and boundaries.

2.Checking orientation, prevailing winds, soil type and drainage.

3.Noting existing trees, plants and garden features.

Production of Plans:

1.Initial Concept Plans will be presented to you outlining design proposals. After discussion with the client any alterations or changes will be noted.

2. A full Base Plan will be produced detailing all garden features. A quotation can also be provided at this stage. Construction Drawings may also be produced for specific features.

3.Planting Plans can also be produced detailing exact species, locations and numbers required to achieve the finished look.

4.Construction Plans can also be provided detailing precise processes, specifications quantities to conform with construction regulations. These drawing can be of particular use to the landscape contractors but also to the client who can cross check the contractors work to ensure the hard landscaping complies with design specifications.

Note: Working drawings are to scale, generally at A3 or A2 size. All drawings are produced using the latest version of AutoCAD.

Design Fees:

Subsequent to the initial free visit, all design work and consultation work is charged at €40 per hour. Although its not usually possible to give a definite quotation at the outset, we can normally give a price indication based on the size of your garden, the number of drawings required, your budget for the project and the complexity you require in each of the drawings. As a guide, you could expect a concept plan drawing of todays average size suburban garden to cost in the region €150-€250side_garden.jpg. Any additional drawings such as planting plans or construction plans would incur additional fees.

Implementation of the Design:

Once detailed working drawings have been finalised a quotation for construction work can be produced. Discussion can then take place on how best to proceed.
Some clients with large gardens may wish to implement their plan over a period of years on a phased basis.
Others may wish to carryout part or all of the construction and planting themselves but require expert advice first. This service can be provided by us.
