Design Ethos & Philosophy at Oakleigh Manor

Based at our Kent studio, Oakleigh Manor still has a very organic approach to Garden Design, we love creating bespoke new gardens, a fresh approach is taken with each new client & project.

With every project our aim to prepare designs that exceed your expectations, balancing design innovation with the realism of project budget, maximising the potential of your new garden space.

Our design team, from director level down, are passionate and skilled individuals, using traditional hand drawn design from sketch, conceptual to master plan, 3D modelling capture space awareness and feeling, including buildings, planting schemes, lighting and much more, using strong architectural design, promoting locally sourced and natural materials, creating bold and timeless landscape & structure.

Oakleigh Manor’s Garden Design Process (What to expect)

If you would like your garden redesigned by our Design team, simply complete the enquiry form or call the team today. No fees are charged for an initial chat or for most initial site meetings. We will prepare you a written “Design Fee Proposal” prior to proceeding with any charges to you.

So firstly, we will need a little bit of your time to find out a little about your ideas, then we would look to arrange an Initial Site Meeting with one of our designers, at a time convenient to you, preferably at the site location or to view drawings of developing scheme projects. At the meeting, we will listen to your requirements, then suggest the some ideas and provide advise for your project. This will take approximately one hour of your time.

Once we understand your Design requirement, we will  submit a  Design Fee Proposal for you to consider with no obligation, this will state our Design Fees and the stages of design work we will carry out for you.

Our service is tailored to suit you, your home and your requirements so your Design Fee proposal will specify the correct type of survey required, and the appropriate stages of the process.

Each Garden/Landscape Design Package offers the most suitable survey type, a client brief, a conceptual stage if required, finally we will create a large format master design together with a build specification to construct the new design.

“Our Garden Design Process (The stages)”  below which explains the different stages of a design process and the options that may be suitable for your new scheme.

“Garden Design Packages (by garden size) Info & Fee guide” below which shows our fees for our garden design process.

Our Oak Framed Car Barn, Garden Room, Entrance Gate Design services, together with our Landscape Lighting & Irrigation design services take a similar route, however the design process is tailored to suit each type.

We also provide planning guidance for all projects that require local authority or other permissions.

Our Garden Design Process (The stages)

Stage 1 - Initial Site Meeting (ISM)

Our initial site meeting is a no-obligation meeting where we can discuss your requirements, view the site or any drawings/plans you may have and provide you with our professional advice and ideas before you are committing to us. The meeting will take up approximately 1 hour of your time.

Once the Initial Site Meeting is complete, our Designer will forward you a written Garden Design Proposal, detailing the stages of your process and the respective fees. At this point you will need to secure a booking with us by completing your Garden Design Proposal Form, then returning this to us with the correct Booking Deposit.

We will then contact you within 1-3 working days to secure a date for the first stages of your Design work.

Stage 2 - Site Survey (3 options)

Opt 1 – Site Survey 2D

A 2D survey is a two dimensional survey type ideal for small flat areas with no large ground level changes or drainage design is required. Our surveyor will record all width and length dimensions of the area, record the positions of any relevant existing features or structural planting, record the aspect (how the sun effects the site) and record any other relevant data i.e ground and soil conditions. Our surveyor will record all data on a visual and non-destructive basis, no surfaces will be disturbed or damaged. If you have any relevant information for the existing area it may well prove useful for the remaining design process.

Opt 2 – Site Survey 3D

A 3D survey is a three dimensional survey type ideal for non- flat areas with ground level changes or drainage design is required. Our surveyor will record all width and length and ground level dimensions of the area, record the positions of any relevant existing features or structural planting, record the aspect (how the sun effects the site) and record any other relevant data i.e ground and soil conditions. Our surveyor will record all data on a visual and non-destructive basis, no surfaces will be disturbed or damaged. If you have any relevant information for the existing area it may well prove useful for the remaining design process.

Opt 3 – Site Survey GPS

A GPS survey is a three dimensional survey type ideal for all large and complex areas with ground level changes or drainage design is required. Our surveyor will record all width and length and ground level coordinates of the area, record the positions of any relevant existing features or structural planting, record the aspect (how the sun effects the site) and record any other relevant data i.e ground and soil conditions. Our surveyor will record all data on a visual and non-destructive basis no surfaces will be disturbed or damaged. If you have any relevant information for the existing area it may well prove useful for the remaining design process.

Stage 3 - Client Brief Meeting

Within this meeting, our Designer/s will listen to your full requirements for the new design area and provide you with the best design innovation and ideas to blend together and form the Master design.

We will run you through a comprehensive design questionnaire asking you about the future use of the new space, budget, materials, themes style, preferences, dislikes etc to ensure we gather as much information possible to enable us to focus on creating your perfect design requirement for the space.

If we feel at this stage we will be able to fully capture your design requirements will get straight onto generating the Master Design without the necessity for a Concept stage (4a & 4b), if we feel there are many options to explore or you require further illustrations before we are ready to generate your Master Design.

Stage 4a (optional)- Generation of Concept Design

The concept stage is an optional stage of any design process which allows us to illustrate design options in sketch format if both you and our designer are not confident of taking the client brief and survey information directly into generating the Mater Design.

Concept design is generally recommended by our designer within the early stages of the design process if you are unsure on the main content of the design and require some more illustrated options to finalise you fine tuning of the Master Design.

Concept design is also a good time to discuss your Budget for the project, normally at this stage we can provide you with some estimated Construction/Installation costs for the new Design to be implemented.

Stage 4b (optional)- Concept Design Meeting

Once all Conceptual Drawings, Sketches & Mood boards are generated, we will schedule a Concept Meeting with you to finalise the Concepts into firm design decisions before progressing into the generation of your new Master Design.

Stage 5a - Generation of Master Garden Design

Your Master design drawing is the finished drawing/s, these range in size subject to garden area and scale suitability from A0 to A3, either CAD or Hand drawn.

The Master Design will detail all new features of the garden, showing material and product types, all structural planting and themes will be shown.

The Master Design will be drawn to scale in plan view to enable our Project teams or any professional to create a Bill of quantities of list of materials.

At this stage, (if required) we will also generate a Landscape Construction/Installation Specification & Quotation which details all main information required to build the new scheme.

Stage 5a - Master Garden Design Meeting

Within this meeting we will present to you your Master Design Drawing for you. We will talk you through the entire Design detail within, together with Material choices and feasibility to create to new design.

Within this meeting we also present a Landscape Construction/Installation Specification & Quotation which details all main information required to build the new scheme.

The Landscape Construction/Installation Specification & Quotation is a written document that provides you with our recommendation for the build process of your new Design. It will describe clearance, groundworks, drainage, base layers, foundations, construction information, soil conditioning & planting, it can be broken down into phases or built in one single project. Please inform our Design team if you would like your Quotation to be broken down into individual costs per phase or item..

Construction Drawings (subject to scheme)

Construction drawings are normally required for bespoke structural features of the garden that require construction design information to enable the build process. They are also required for Building Design to illustrate building regulations within their detail, and if planning consent is required from your local authority.

Planting Scheme Design (subject to scheme)

A planting scheme design is a plant by plant detailed design drawing which shows plant quantities, type, variety, size and root formation within the design area.
