The Process of Gardening
Working together step by step
We at Green Touch believe it is necessary to understand the project’s general design before building your urban garden. This planning process acquaints us with your specific needs so we may match our expectations and make a plan to fit your wishes and budget.
Step 1: Getting acquainted
On our first meeting, we get acquainted. We talk about your wishes and fantasies. We look at photographs and sketches in order to get a general idea of your garden and outdoor space designs as you imagine it. We can look at a specific garden you visited in the past and talk about your vague fantasies. We may also reminisce about the fragrant citrus orchard of your childhood or the wild red anemones blooming at the end of a country road. The Green Touch team is able to realize your dreams and make your wishes come true right on your doorstep.
At best, you can design your garden and home simultaneously so they both move on parallel lines. But we can always match the garden to an existing home and consider its features.
Step 2: The First Draft
After our introductory talk, we begin drawing the first draft in which the garden area is divided according to your personal needs and expectations. We may decide, for example, to plan a large area for garden parties or add an intimate reading spot. We can build a swimming pool for your morning exercise or a decorative pond for your evening meditation. We may plant an organic fruit orchard you can harvest instead of shopping at the supermarket, lay a luscious lawn on which you can walk barefoot or build a naturally ventilated open kitchen. It is all up to your imagination.
Step 3: Practical decisions and choices
Next we visit our favorite plantations and shops where we choose the appropriate trees, shrubs, plants, tiles, stones, bricks, deck materials and lighting fixtures. We at Green Touch believe in making all these choices together, along with you and especially for you. We decide together, according to the general design concept and its specific requirements.
Step 4: Planning in detail
After our general decisions and choices are made we draft the final plans and calculate the actual project costs. With these details in mind we can decide on the budget and stay within it. At this stage we are able to start planting and building your garden.
Step 5: Planting and Construction
The Green Touch team is available for you all along the process. We personally supervise planting and construction. We wish to unveil your beautifully finished garden but the process is as important to us. We wish you enjoy this fruitful, fragrant and colorful journey along with us.
