Antonia Schofield aims to provide a professional service that meets your needs, tastes and budget. A full service can be provided from design concept through to detailed design plans, sourcing materials, construction stage, planting plans, plant sourcing, and implementing, finishing touches and accessories etc. The typical design process is as follows…

Step 1 - Initial consultation & site visit. On this first meeting we discuss your requirements, budget and expectations. A full brief is compiled from of all your likes and dislikes, practicalities, timescales and of course the wish list. We will discuss concepts and look through the extensive portfolio of ideas and many examples of completed projects.

Step 2 - Concept stage. The design process starts by creating a mood board to bring all the key ingredients of the design together – the dream scheme, choice of materials, key plants, colour palette, wish list and the practicalities all come together to create one cohesive look. Concept ideas are shown in rough sketch form, and cad visual impressions are created to give a very realistic view of how the new scheme will look.

Step 3 - Site Survey & Analysis. When you have decided to proceed, the next step is to measure up the site. Detailed notes will be taken of the site, access, levels, features, good & bad views, and any existing plants. From this information a comprehensive to scale Survey Drawing of the existing garden will be produced, and if required a Site report & recommendations from which the design can be developed.

Step 4 - Sourcing the design Ingredients. All the hard landscape materials – stone, timber bricks etc, pots & planters, and any key accessories are sourced for you. Samples with estimate prices will be provided for approval.

Step 5 - Design plan. With the concept agreed and the key design ingredients sourced the Design Plan can then be produced. This is a scale plan drawing detailing all the features, materials and planting of the proposed new garden. The plan shows all the relevant design and construction details, and is then the blueprint from which building contractors can make accurate costings of the scheme.

Step 6 - Tendering & construction of hard landscaping. Now that the scheme is drawn up and agreed – it can then be costed. Reputable landscape contractors will be invited to quote for the building of your garden. Antonia will guide you through this process and make any recommendations to you. Or you may wish to appoint your own contractor.

Antonia has collaborated on a number of very successful projects with Chris Pawson from Cp landscapes. You will see many examples of these projects, plus information of the full service they offer. Please see link to the website for more details: www.wix.com/cplandscapes/gardens

Step 7 - Planting Plan. For the new scheme to really come to life the next step is some beautiful new plants. A scale Planting Plan drawing is produced showing you the plants and position they will occupy in the scheme. This is accompanied by a visual plant schedule that lists all the plants and quantities. An estimate will be produced for the costs of plants & planting.

Step 8 - Maintenance and after care. To keep your garden looking it’s best Antonia can offer seasonal tidy ups and any replanting. Alternatively if you are requiring regular maintenance offering all aspects of garden works and providing expert advice – I highly recommend Paul Manning of Davidia Urban Gardens Ltd who can provide the full service for you.
