client relation - parameters worksheet
Taking the time to think through the following will give us a jump-start in designing a garden appropriate for you. This page helps explore the basic goals you wish to achieve as well as saving me a lot of time and guesswork. I am looking for broad sweeps; the details will come out during the design process. The question about project priorities is necessary to answer. Address as much of the rest as you like, in whatever way you like.
PROJECT PRIORITIES - Weight the importance of these three project aspects to total 100%: project cost, shedule of completion, final result. The three can not be weighted equally. This will help yourself, as well as me, place importance where you wish it to be.
LIVING SPACE - are you interested in sitting areas, table space, entertaining in your garden, space for children, space for pets?
MAINTENANCE - Do you lean toward spaces for active gardening, ie: vegetables, cutting flowers, etc., would you prefer low maintenance plantings, or a mix of both?
PRIVACY - Do you wish for fencing, screens or plantings to create physical barriers or to achieve visual privacy?
BUILT STRUCTURES - Do you wish for any built structures, ie: arbour, pergola, cabana, fencing, stone walls, decking, paved patio, playhouse, storage shed?
WATER FEATURE - Are you interested in a water feature, water pot, or a bog garden?
FAVORITES - Do you have any favorite plants you would like to try and include? Are there any plants you detest?
EDIBLE PLANTS - Are you interested in vegetables, fruit, berries, culinary herbs?
ECOLOGICAL CONCERNS - Are any of the following important to you: organic methods, water efficiency, use of native plants, habitat for birds and insects, composting?
AESTHETICS - Do you envision a garden that appears somewhat formal, a garden that appears natural, appears park like, exuberant, serene, contemporary, cottage, etc.
