Once Urban Idyll has been engaged, a detailed survey of the site is conducted including sketching the site, photography, detailed measurement to create scale plans, assessment of aspect, and stocktaking of existing plantings. Soil analysis, measurement of gradient and location of pipes and cables may be conducted as required.
A scale plan of the existing site is prepared as a benchmark before the new garden design is overlaid. The drawings will show all the important landscaping features and key plantings. Once prepared the plan is discussed with the client on site so that the relationship between the drawn and real space can be better understood.
