Mark Fenton Designs

Design

My passion is helping clients that care – whether their project is big or small!

Capable of designing to different styles and for projects that vary from coastal to mountainside settings the designs I produce complement the thought, care, time and money invested in the interior of a home or professional image of a commercial property.

My approach focuses on the client’s needs and the potential of their site. I draw on a wealth of experience and creative vision to prepare design options and make recommendations.

1. Consultation

I will visit you at a convenient time, listen to your ideas and make initial suggestions about your project’s potential. My portfolio will give you an insight into the design process and what you can expect from me in providing a design service. My initial consultation is free of charge.

2. Fee

I will write a quotation with a description of your brief and the services I can offer. My fees vary according to the size, nature and complexity of the project.

3. Phase One

I will carry out a basic survey of the site or advise on the commission of a survey if necessary. I then prepare a 2D plan for the garden with proposals for hard and soft landscaping, accompanied by sketches of images of similar features. At a return meeting I present the plan and discuss the character of the proposals and the layout, aterials and appearance. Any changes to the design are charged at an hourly rate and quoted for in advance.

4. Phase Two

Depending on the design features construction drawings and specifications may be required. I can also provide planting plans with lists of names, plant sizes and quantities. A schedule lists each item of work and is prepared for a landscaper to price against.
