    Introduction to garden planning and design session 6 Introduction to garden planning and design session 6 Presentation Transcript

    • Introduction to GardenPlanning and DesignWeek 6 – ‘Bringing it all together’.Planting plans and implementation ofa design
    • Learning Objectives 1. Planting plans State the role of anchor plants in a planting plan Draw a planting plan for the area selected State the method for calculation of the number ofplants required to fill a given area Calculate the number of plants required for statedareas 2. Time and money: budgeting, planningand construction Finalising budget items - state the importance ofidentifying budget items during the design process Describe how construction and execution can beplanned and co-ordinated. State the advantages and disadvantages ofconstruction choices (DIY or professional).
    • Drawing a planting plan – mixed border Draw planting areas to scale – larger scalethan the master plan. Select and draw anchor and structure plantsto scale. Add seasonal layers of interest – do this ontracing paper so you can overlay theseasons and check for overcrowding. Oncehappy draw a planting plan – as you did forthe over all master plan Draw all plant ‘icons’ to scale – create anumbered key. Draw a scaled elevation to check heightsand lay out – use your photos and drawover them or simply draw scaled trianglesand fill in with suitable colour, texture etc.
    • How many plants do I need? Using the planting plan allows you to countthem for plants with varying sizes. Easier approach for plants that have thesame mature size – e.g. bedding. Work out the area Work out how much space each plant needs(multiply the in-row and between rowspacings) Divide the area by the amount of spaceneeded per plant. Round up if necessaryand add say 5% wastage.
    • Budget No such thing as a cheap makeover Can control costs if they are identifiedas you move through the designprocess. Research material costs and record Three quotes/tenders for all majorworks that are contracted out. If budget issues are identified theneither phase works or change thedesign (substitute materials, replacehard landscaping with soft etc).
    • Implementation Double check legal and planningrequirements. Prepare detailed specification –quantity and quality. Tendering process – if usingprofessionals. Use the specificationand master plan, invite bids. Project management – timescales,timings of work, order of works. Future maintenance
    • Learning outcomes 1.
