Garden Design For Front Gardens
Front gardens can vary dramatically in size from small planting areas to long sweeping drives smaller front gardens can often be overlooked or be dominated by neighbouring garages, houses or walls, so carefully design is important. Curving borders can be used to great effect to provide grandeur. The longer drive can benefit from repeated tree planting to form avenues whether using Fir trees or Deciduous trees.
When designing front garden areas it is possible to create central features as the centrepiece of the garden, the designer optimises parking areas, borders, tree planting and space with efficiency to provide the best possible solution for your design brief.
Both formal and informal designs suit the front garden, traditional and modern styles all work well, planting can be chosen to suit the small or larger space.
After surveying your garden a survey plan is drawn to scale, from this we create a 3D Sketch Design model, when the model is complete we capture views which 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.
