What is landscaping?
Landscaping is the act of designing and building a new outside space. This can range from making a parking space or patio in your home, to creating a water feature or garden maze in a park.
How is landscaping different to Garden Design?
While there isn't a great deal of difference between garden design and landscaping, the important thing is that garden design deals mainly with private homes and their gardens. Landscaping is used more for public spaces and for companys' outside spaces.
If you're a homeowner, head over to our Garden Design services.
If you own a public or commercial space, then you're in the right place!
How do we do landscaping?
We think it's incredibly important that you develop a trusting relationship with us from the beginning. That's why when you first get in contact with us, we'll have a chat with you about what you'd like to achieve (no job is too big for us!), and give you a free quote.
We'd recommend that before you call us, you have a think about what you'd like the area to function as, any particular styles you want to use and any features you want in the space. Whether it's wooden benches surrounded by greenery, or a modern chrome and white water fountain, anything you can think of, we can talk it through with you and help shape a design!
If you're unhappy with it, we'll leave it there and wish you luck.
If you're happy with the price and the design, we'll complete a survey of the land, draw up Construction, Landscaping and Perspective plans and run through them with you. We'll go through these plans with you, go through any details you'd like changing and then finalise the plans.
Once the design stage is completed, we'll move onto construction!
First we'll take up any flooring, demolish and remove any objects or structures and clear the area needed. Next we'll grade the land so that drainage gets taken care of properly.
We'll then run utility and power lines and install an irrigation system if needed. Next we'll build any walls and hard landscaping such as patios, decking and paths.
Next we'll install any outdoor living items such as benches, fountains and lighting, and lastly, plant any flowers, bushes, trees and anything else going into the space.
Once everything has been built and planted, we'll test all systems and clean the area completely of any debris left from building.
Finally, we'll walk you through the area to make sure you're happy with it and it's what you had planned out from the beginning!
