We offer a complete service, from initial site visit and consultation to full design, working with you at each stage of the process to ensure your dreams for your outside space are realised. From there, we manage the entire process: the tenders from landscape contractors, the creation of all technical drawings and detailed specifications, and very hands-on management of the entire build process, ensuring it runs smoothly, on-budget and on-time. Once the garden's built the excitement's only just begun, and we can also refer you to maintenance experts to ensure your valued space continues to reach its potential.
The space and the aspect are studied carefully, the sun and the light are monitored, the potential problems such as ugly boundaries or offensive views are flagged up, as the design and problem solving processes begin. The drawings start to take shape, taps and exterior sockets are placed, lights and lighting are discussed and sourced, and irrigation is factored in once borders are determined. The hard landscaping is thoughtfully considered and is placed to capture and create intimate and imaginative entertaining spaces. Finally, the colour palette is agreed and trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials are all discussed, sourced and chosen.
After working with you to appoint a landscaper, we then organise and carefully monitor the build regularly and carefully. We coordinate the various contractors, ensuring the build and program are kept on schedule as the garden begins to take shape. Butter relies on teams of landscapers and contractors whom she has grown to trust over the past 15 years. They are all exceptionally talented, hard-working and trustworthy group of professionals. Once the hard landscaping is complete, the soil, trees, shrubs and plants arrive. Butter personally places and plants together with another dedicated team of skilled plantsmen.
