Initial consultation: A meeting to record your requirements, and to agree a design brief. There are a choice of services which can be talked through.
Sketch scheme: allows the communication of some ideas. The sketches are developed from photographs of your outside and provide opportunity for further discussion.
Master Plan: shows the location and type of garden features which will combine to provide a visually cohesive and practical scheme to make your garden a useful and desirable place to be.
Planting plan: shows the location, number and specification of required plants. The plan is usually accompanied by plant illustrations for quick reference. We promote a naturalistic approach to planting including flowering perennials which attract pollinators.
Provide detailed cross sections / illustrations of hard landscape features such as steps, paving, walls and specialist features such as seats and pools.

Exeter Garden Design can carry out construction and planting of your new garden or provide specifications for contractors to carry out all or some of the work. Some clients choose to carry out some of the work themselves.
Alternatively local contractors such as carpenters, decking installation firms, landscapers or builders can be employed to carry out some of the work. Construction drawings and layout plans created by Exeter Garden Design can inform the work of the contractors to deliver the landscape features to the intention of the design.
