As a qualified Landscape Architect with over 25 years experience in design, planting and horticulture I pride myself on producing well thought out design solutions that meet the requirements of my clients brief. My passion for design will be evident throughout the process from initial consultation to completed design.
Hard landscaping, Soft landscaping, Garden buildings/structures
During the site visits Dru listened to our list of various requirements and was able to focus on what was important - an achievement given the often-conflicting requirements we provided. Dru skill was demonstrated as we selected his first design unmodified.
Separate to the design process, Dru also assisted us with the selection of contractor to implement his design, joining us as we met with the potential candidates. Given the investment we were very grateful for his help and very satisfied with the choice.
Throughout the build process Dru was able to answer questions before the build (when we were selecting furniture and need details on measurements), during the build whenever queries were raised or design decisions required, and after completion when we had queries related to subsequent planting.
Having now lived with the completed garden for almost a year (trust me - during 2020 we used it a lot) it is very clear to us that Dru nailed the original brief.
We are very impressed by the way Dru approached a difficult brief. He listened to us and used our thoughts to influence his proposals. His presentations to us were clear using the latest technology (including 3D Flythroughs) and hard copy plans. He also made an electronic Webex presentation to our neighbours followed by a site visit to clarify the proposals to them.
Overall, a very professional, flexible and approachable landscape designer whom we highly recommend.
