1. Initial site visit

Discussion about the garden and your requirements along with a site survey and analysis.

2. Formulation of the Client Brief

A document that acts as an ingredients list generated from the initial site visit and discussion. This is then agreed and used as a set of criteria we design from.

3. Design Concepts

A set of drawings and 3D elevations exploring various layouts and styles formed from the client brief. This eventually accumulates into a final design layout. We then begin to tighten things up further with discussions into planting and materials etc.

4. Planting Ideas

Design concept(s) that detail a list of plants we intend to place into the final design. This depicts information such as the overall planting style, leaf / flowering period and colour scheme along with any specimen plants, pots and containers that may go into the design.

5. Materials Document

A brief document confirming the final materials, structures and finishes for the garden.

6. Lighting plan

A lighting design layout for your garden with recommended positions of the lighting and styles etc. Please note installation and any associated lighting diagrams/layouts are to be undertaken by a qualified electrician.

7. A quoted estimate of the works

A final estimate and contract documents setting in place the construction stage of the design and build service.

8. Consultation meetings

Throughout the entire process meetings will be arranged to discuss design concepts, materials, pricing and planting styles etc.

9. Specification of works

Construction drawings and specification created for the team to use during the build.

10. Project supervision

This covers supervision by Kirman Design of the entire project including health and safety, time management, job evaluation meetings, variations / additions to work and snagging etc.

11. Garden maintenance plan

A document that acts as a guide on how to look after the plants and materials within your newly constructed garden. This is created once the garden is complete.
