Once your questionnaire and attachments are received by one of our designers, we will call you to make an appointment to meet at the nursery. Prior to the meeting, your designer will spend an hour to:
This pre-meeting work ensures that the designer is fully cognizant of the scope of your project and can make more efficient use of the time you spend together at your appointment.
During your appointment, you and your designer will work together on all aspects of the design. She will measure out your garden space right on the ground of the nursery so that you can both get a real sense for the space you’re working with and better envision the design as it develops. You’ll discuss various options and collaborate on the artful combination of plants for your space. By the end of the process, you’ll not only have a design but you’ll have chosen your plants and their locations will be noted on your garden diagram so you’ll know where to plant them. You will then head home and you (or someone you hire) will do the gardening work to plant your garden design.
If you are consulting our design service about a large space, we recommend tackling one patio, balcony or bed (or small group of beds) at a time. Of course, this means that more than one meeting may be required, but it will make the whole process more manageable for you and your designer. We also recommend limiting each session to one or two hours so that it’s not too overwhelming.
