garden design process

greenvision garden design offers a flexible approach to new garden designs


Working with our clients, we offer a range of design services to suit all budgets for gardens, landscapes and outdoor spaces in Cheshire, Manchester and surrounding areas of Altrincham, Hale, Bowdon, Knutsford, Wilmslow, Didsbury and Chorlton.


How we work

Every garden is unique and each project has a life of its own but they tend to follow a similar journey.

initial contact and advice

Our clients usually get in touch via telephone or email.  During these initial conversations we will discuss your project with you and explore which of our services are best suited to your project and budget.  If you wish to proceed, we make an appointment for an initial site visit.

initial visit and site survey

The first step is to have a formal chat in person about your garden.  This is where we can get to know you and what you would like from your garden, enabling us create your client brief.


We will survey the site ready to produce plans.

short design service

Typically suited to smaller projects, i.e. a courtyard, small garden or driveway. After an initial meeting to discuss your needs, we will carry out a full survey of your garden.

From here we will go away to draw up three options or “concept designs” to scale.  Finally we will meet again to present these to you.


full design service

Typically suited to larger projects or a client that is looking to explore design options in more detail. After an initial meeting to discuss your needs, we will carry out a full survey of your garden.


From here we will go on to return a client brief to you for your approval, explore concept designs, progressing to a final plan and planting plans.  And, if required, project management and planting implementation.

project management and consultancy services

Clients looking for advice or help with their gardens may find our hourly consultancy services more affordable, and better suited to their needs.  We charge an hourly rate of £60 for this service.

You may also make use of this service if you have had your garden designed by ourselves or another Garden Designer and would like to appoint us as project managers to see the build run smoothly.
