Creativity at the detail level

Top quality classical garden designs involve very strong attention to detail. The vision for the whole can only be achieved by working up from the way the individual features interact to blend or contrast.

This initial planning stage involves an extensive site survey to determine the major views, the way the land rises and falls, the key features and how the new design must interlock with existing plants and structures, your desired garden look and level of maintenance.

The design at the right shows the steps (in green) linking the two levels and the way the ponds and rill lock these levels together. The lower two design details show the fall line for one part of the garden (in red) and the existing trees and shrubs (in blue) that will form part of the new garden layout.
