The Process of Landscaping

Site Visit, Planning & Consultation

Matthew Stewart Van

The planning stage and establishing clients' requirements and desires is essential to the success and satisfaction of your project.

We begin with a full client consultation to establish your needs and a full site assessment.

Design and Plans Approval

Mark Cowie Design

Your ideas and brief are given to our experienced landscape designer(s).

The outline design is returned to you for approval, together with a quotation for the design fees, site survey, construction and materials costs.

Final Plan

The final plan is approved, and includes structures and features to be retained, and full quotation for the construction stage.


The plot will be (spray) marked to show the dimensions and positions, which have been scaled from the design for the clients (customers) approval, prior to the commencement of any work .


Separate to the Construction Plans is the Planting Plan, which includes costings and a full plan of plants, photos, elevations.


We can help you plan for continuing maintenance, or help to arrange professional help. This can be discussed at any stage in the process.
