The Design Process

A typical design process will go like this:

Job Specification – we will meet with all the users of the garden on-site and find out what you want, what you need and what potential scope your garden project has.

This is the most important part as it sets out clearly what a succesful project will feel like, and gets us in sync with you right from the start.

Survey – the structural basis of the design work.

Outline Design – initial concepts and ideas are presented, allowing for further discussion and development with you.

Final Design – Detailed plans and specifications are finalised in order to begin the work of constructing and planting your garden.

Construction and Project Management – our craftspeople will come in and make the design happen.

After Care – we will make sure you have all the advice and guidance in place to help your garden grow. We also hope that through the process of designing the garden you will end up a wiser, better informed and more involved garden owner. Now that makes it worthwhile for us!

Running Low

Sorry to people asking for some of our pruning tools, but we have run out of a few items and are waiting for more to arrive. I did a number of garden talks this week and demonstrated the quality of some of the tools. This led to a run which I hadn’t anticipated! So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
