We are also able to provide you with a planting design only service, these plans will incorporate trees, hedges, topiary, shrubs, herbaceous plants, grasses, ferns and bulbs showing their size and quantity as required. Planting is designed with plants that provide a garden with structure, flowers, berries, scent, texture, focal points, accents, seasonal colour and evergreen foliage. A landscape management plan is also available to help you establish the planting scheme.
After surveying your garden, a survey plan is drawn to scale, and from this we create a 3D Sketch Design model, when the model is complete we capture views that we present to you in the comfort of your own home or office. Once the sketch design has been agreed we then prepare the Master Plan drawing.
Once the sketch design has been agreed, we then prepare the Master Plan this is a fully annotated drawing that has been drawn to scale. The drawing shows the positions of borders, paving and garden features. This drawing also includes existing/new levels and short form specifications. This drawing is used by the contractor to price the garden work and set out the garden ready for construction.
Planting plans are drawn up once the master plan has been completed and agreed, they are based on the position and size of the borders designed and the style of planting required to suit the soil conditions and aspect.
The plants are labelled with the quantities required in the position indicated and entered into a planting schedule which shows the plants name in Latin along with the total number of plants required and their size. This drawing can then used to order the plants and set them out in their correct positions.
Kym Valley Gardens prides itself on being able to explain complex issues in a simple easy to understand way. To help do this we use 3D Visualisation and various computer-aided design packages. High-quality illustrations are an integral part of our work so we can prepare plans and technical illustrations for projects as required. Although computer programs are used for most of our design work, some plans and illustrations can be hand-drawn bringing an additional depth of quality to our design presentations.
