Designing Gardens around Vancouver Island with expert solutions
Our gardeners offer a large selection of gardening solutiona on Vancouver Island, so that you can design your beautiful yard just the way you envisioned it. Whether you’re looking for a new garden for your new home or an update to your existing garden.
The Gardening Process
Before our gardeners can undertake any groundbreaking work, we will meet with you, and discuss what you had in mind and how we can work with you to create your dream gardens on Vancouver Island.
What do our Vancouver Island gardeners offer?
We will take measurements and grades of your existing garden, which will enable us to go away with accurate information for putting together a garden plan.
In this phase we will get and give ideas about desired features and overall finished looks. We will discuss budgets for the proposed work and if you wish to continue to the actual garden design phase then we will talk about when works best for the next meeting.
Questions for during the first Garden Design Meeting:
Are there any problems that we need to address, ie poor drainage, access, light etc
Who are we designing for:
Are there any specific users that need to be focused on when creating this design, for example elderly, disabilities, children, pets etc
What is the scope of the project and are there any constraints
Sometimes we find that once getting chatting about someone’s gardening ideas it opens up into a larger project than they planned. This may cause time constraints, and also bring forward ideas of breaking the installation down to several phases to manage budgets for the homeowner.
Are there existing underground utilities
Before doing any physical work, we will call all and any Vancouver Island utility companies, so we have a comprehensive plan of any utilities running through your property.
Once we have all the required information we need we will go back to our office and start on your gardening design package
Once our gardeners have a design and plan is completed, we will meet with you again to discuss how it fits with your vision, and if there are any adjustments you would like to make. Once the final revisions have been made we will draw up a detailed quote, which will allow you to see a detailed breakdown of costs for every aspect of the gardening design. Once this has been finalized and both parties agree then we will discuss when the project will start and the order of gardening events to follow, ie drainage, hardscapes, softscapes etc.
Once this has been done we will proceed with the gardening project, keeping your updated on results and changes as we progress. If there are any major changes and additions, then you will be informed and and cost adjustments will be discussed and agreed before going ahead.
Once the gardening project has been completed, we will give you a detailed walkthrough, explaining all aspects of your new garden and how it functions, i.e. irrigation, drainage, lighting etc.
