We view garden design as a process; the time taken by client and contractor to consider and reach agreement about the functional purposes and desired atmosphere for an outdoor space. We work hard to fully understand our client’s preferences and garden style ideas. We take time to consider how our garden design ideas will match a client’s life-stage and life-interests. We consider the existing environment and architecture in our design suggestions.
