Working With A Designer
When you work with a garden designer think about what sort of garden you want and who will be using it, but also what you need in the space, so you can brief the designer properly at your initial meeting.
Discuss how you want to use the garden and give examples of places you have seen that inspire you – it can help to use images from books or magazines or have an online board of pictures to illustrate your preferred style.
Decide what you can afford and be honest with the designer about your budget from the start. Make sure you are clear on costings, what is included and when you must pay what.
Trust your garden designer and give them the freedom to come up with a fresh design – they may suggest things you have never thought of, you might have to adjust how you think about your garden to accommodate their ideas. Have faith in their abilities and the results will delight you. This is in the presentation plan, incorporating your requirements and are open for discussion before final drawings are made.
Like any building work, having your garden built may be disruptive, especially if materials and people have to come through the house, so be prepared and try to be flexible. If there are elements of the design that you are not sure about, tell your designer or contractor as soon as possible. Dealing with issues quickly might save you time and money and will ensure the project is successful.
