The process of any garden design agency or consultancy is one of the most important factors of their culture. Whilst lead designer Sam is experienced and qualified, it’s the simple-on-the-surface working methodology that sets Eden Restored apart. Whilst everything shimmers and shines from the outside, deadlines are hit with ease and clients always satisfied – beneath the surface there is an intense effort of hard work, design and project management from everybody on the team.

Consultation and Site Analysis

The very first step in any Eden Restored garden design process is to block out time for you to meet with your lead designer. We will then discuss all of your ideas and everything that you envisage for your outdoor space – exploring your wants, needs and desires. Photos and measurements can be taken (a landscape survey for larger sites) and then our team will begin to build a brief and site analysis. This process is the building blocks for creating the perfect garden.

Presentation Drawings

Once agreed and signed off, the design brief will become design work. Eden Restored will create a set of presentation drawings for your review – including a scaled layout plan, perspective drawings, a mood board (of design styles and materials) and a planting list. We can also produce additional drawings to help you truly visualise the outcome of your garden.

Quotation and Budget

From these plans and drawings, the brief can then be transformed into a competitive project quotation. Eden Restored uses trusted and professional contractors for all of our projects, with whom we have longstanding relationships that result in accurate and successful assignments. With the quotation signed off, the exciting work can begin.

Construction Phase

With an incredible range of construction approaches within our arsenal, we will explore and discuss the best options with you before we begin work. Building a team of contractors – selected for their quality, work ethic and professionalism – we will project manage the construction to ensure thorough design understanding throughout the process. If you choose to undertake your own construction and liaise with us only for the design process – we will continue to make ourselves available for any advice relating to the project.

Planting and Soft Landscaping

With the hard landscaping achieve, we will then begin to organise the completion of planting and soft landscaping. Consulting the agreed brief and planting plan, we will arrange the sourcing, layout and setting out of all greenery on site. We have relationships with the best specialist trade nurseries, with access to countless varieties of plant to ensure the perfect garden atmosphere.

Relaxation and Enjoyment

We will continue with the project until all parties are pleased with the outcome. And then there’s only one thing left to do – enjoy your dream garden in the comfort of your own home.
