Melanie Driver - plansOnce the design for your new garden has been agreed, detailed plans, drawn from a land survey will be required to accurately build it.

These documents may take the form of:

  • A planting plan detailing each species botanical name and its exact location.
  • Plans for hard landscaping features detailing their position and levels.
  • Specifications for materials and fixed elements like stone, wood, planters, water features, lighting, sculptures etc.
  • Perspective views and 3D models. (These are useful for visualising complex designs).
  • Landscape plans to support planning applications if they are required.
