Design Consult

Garden Bed Design – Initial Consultation

Are you looking for a way to beautify your property? Great looking gardens are a great place to start. With there being so many different plants out there, many homeowners don’t know where to begin. Hiring a professional to provide guidance on the best plants for your site conditions can be a wise choice – and offer the best chance for long term survival of your expensive softscape feature.

Alan’s Landscaping Heather’s Gardens (ALHG) is a family owned and operated landscape, garden and excavation company based out of west Ottawa. We specialize in custom gardens and garden bed designs. Heather is our in-house softscape design specialist. She teams up with Alan, who provides the construction brawn, to bring the designs to life.

The Consultation Process

All of our garden design projects start with an on-site consultation. These consultations typically take about 1 hour – depending on the size of your property. During this site meeting we meet with the homeowner to discuss their likes, dislikes, comfort level for maintenance, and preferences for plants and colours.

Existing Site Conditions

While on-site we take note of the existing site conditions:

  • Existing plants/trees;
  • Lighting;
  • Soils;
  • Moisture, and
  • Identify any other applicable constraints and opportunities.

Finally we take measurements of the areas where you’re looking to have a design prepared for.

Next Steps

After the initial consultation, the homeowner has three options:

  • Receive a recommendation summary;
  • Receive a high level concept sketch, or
  • Undertake a full-detailed garden design.
