Garden Survey

The next step is to visit the garden and carry out a measured grounds survey for our base plan. We carry out a detailed photographic survey and note any good views, any not so good views that might need screening, existing trees and mature shrubs and any favourite plants that need to be incorporated into the design. We record the site drainage, soils and carry out a level survey where required. 

Where necessary we arrange for surveys of very complex gardens, very large gardens or those with a high number of trees to be carried out by land surveyors. 

Level Survey

No garden is too big and a garden with a steep gradient can give opportunity for an exciting design. We have prepared garden designs for some very steep back and front yards.

Trees Surveyed

Trees are often protected under planning law and we survey to ensure that they are incorporated into the garden design. The species and spread of the tree canopy is important in how the tree affects the rest of the garden. Should a tree require removal or pruning we will make any required applications to the Local Authority on your behalf.
