Our garden design process

Andy works alongside a trusted team of highly experienced landscape gardeners to bring your combined visions to life.

This is a truly personalised service based on meticulous attention to detail. Every stage, from the initial brief through to completion is executed to the highest standards. There is no other garden and landscaping service in the UK that comes close to Andy’s process.

During the early stages, Andy will speak with you to get an understanding of what you hope to achieve with your outdoor space. This can be done in person or over video call. Andy will then begin developing a bespoke written brief which will detail the full breakdown and explanation of his proposed design process. This will also include how the work will be performed as well as the costs.


Surveying is a crucial part of the overall process. The survey forms the basis of your design and involves professionally surveying level changes, buildings, trees, utilities and services to ensure your proposed design is structurally sound.

Andy will return to the site to perform a full photographic survey and analysis once the surveying has finished. This process will further complement and ultimately confirm the initial design concept.

Design concept

After the survey has been completed, Andy will present you with a fixed fee for an initial proposal. This proposal is presented in a bound A3 book. Inside, you will find hand-drawn illustrations of your garden design, alongside 3D visuals, CGI precedent photos and an overall plan that describes in fine detail, how your garden or landscaping project will look. The attention to detail is meticulous and personalised to your exact demands and requirements.

However, these plans are by no means final and you will have the opportunity to discuss any changes or alterations with Andy and his team before a final design is confirmed.

Detailed design

The detailed design is the final A3 book that includes any and all changes and alterations mentioned in the previous stage. Every single detail, big and small is covered in this final design, from gate hinges and lighting schemes to water features and seating areas.

This final plan will accurately reflect the cost and build process.


The planting stage is usually covered in the design stage but for clients who wish to remain closely involved in the planting process, you will be able to work with Andy to oversee this. If you are happy to entrust the team with the whole planting process, this can of course be arranged.


For tendering, the final design, drawing package, bills of quantities and any additional specifications will be handed two a few landscape gardeners trusted by Andy. The landscape gardeners will visit your garden on a date and time of your choosing to provide an itemised quote. Andy will personally analyse and from this, produce a tender report highlighting and addressing any concerns or merits of each.


Our work is frequently featured on television and in books, magazines and newspapers worldwide. Andy makes regular appearances on many gardening programmes for major UK television channels and radio stations.
