INITIAL CONSULTANCY

The initial consultancy is the first step in the landscape design process. Jaye Metcalf will personally visit your garden to gain a true sense of the space. Then through detailed discussion with the client, she develops a good insight into your personal tastes and preferences, lifestyle and design requirements. The existing site conditions along with the project budget are also considered in order to ascertain the best direction moving forward in the design process.  
 
 
It is beneficial at this stage to have a thorough insight into the client’s design brief  – this may take the form of magazine articles, photos, written “wish lists” along with architectural drawings and survey plans of the property (if available). Ideas may then be shared together and workable design solutions provided.
 
 
This can either be charged as a once-off consultancy or offset against the investment in a more tangible Landscape Concept Plan and /or Master Plan.
