Site Survey

For each project a site survey is recorded which includes all the physical measurements of the site necessary for designing the garden.  For the majority of gardens, a professional land survey will be done.

An addition to the above, a thorough site assessment is carried out by us.  This includes a thorough photographic record taken of the existing garden and surroundings.  We will also take note of any observed drainage issues.

For more information about this step we have written a couple of insights articles
