EXamples OF Hand-Drawn Designs
TYPES OF DRAWINGSThese images show the ways in which our Garden Designs are illustrated for our Clients.
Masterplans are always drawn to scale; these are important tools for space planning and are where the Design Concept is normally developed. They consider your homes location on the plot, which windows are adjacent to the garden. The plan will also show any existing features, which need to be incorporated into the final design; like trees, shrubs, fences, paths, garage blocks etc. However as a plan they don’t show level changes.
Axonometric drawings are used to show the level changes or height differences in design features. Oftened used on sloping sites or when the heights of different key features, like hedges are important to understanding the design concept.
Sketches are artistic illustrations of the design concept and can vary based on what we are trying to convey.
A Planting Plan is a detailed scale plan of all or part of the planting area. This shows which plants go where, how many, with a defined plant list. Latin names are used including specific variety, as this is required to obtain a quote from the plant nursery.
These are 2D sections through the site showing the level changes or different heights of features, they normally cut through the plot. Cross Sections differ from Axonometric drawings as they are 2D but also to scale. Often used as a tool for construction detailing of water features, supporting walls in sloping gardens etc.
Elevations in Garden Design are normally a side view of the plot showing how the design will appear face on to the viewer in one plane, normally to scale.
