Landscape and garden designers are typically educated in landscape design and horticulture. They are trained to provide professional plans, from conceptual designs through to planting plans, construction drawings, material selection, detailing and pricing. Many garden designers will also provide a service to supervise the works as they progress on site.
They will work closely with you to provide the optimum design for the site and for your requirements. An independent designer, working for you, is free to recommend the best, skilled and reliable contractors to carry out the design.
The garden plans provided by the designer will allow you to plan for the landscape work step by step. The landscaping can then be carried out in stages or all together depending on budget.
