This full design service includes all of the activities on the Outline Design service with additional, more detailed documentation produced to allow all aspects of the design to be taken forward by the client’s chosen garden contractor (builder or landscaping contractor).

This service is best for:

  • Larger or more complex designs where the build cost is likely to be higher and therefore more detailed specifications are required to ensure that the design is implemented accurately and to budget.

  • Projects where the client does not wish to get involved in the selection of plants, landscaping contractors or landscaping materials.
