Project Management

Once the design has been approved, the build phase can begin. This can be a messy process! Be prepared for things to get worse before they get better! I like to be on site regularly to ensure the contractors are following the design specifications and to liaise with you, the client.

Works may include demolition/dismantling of existing structures, moving soil, and the installation of new features. You will see on my terms and conditions page all the jobs involved in project management. The planting always comes last, and will take time to mature, although it’s surprising how much herbaceous perennials can grow in the first year. Trees and shrubs take a bit longer, however, these can be bought as semi-mature specimens if the budget permits, giving instant structure to the planting plan. I like to carry out the planting with some assistance.

Part of the strength of the Greenmantle ethos is our involvement from start ot finish in the projects we undertake. So much so, that we also enjoy coming back for routine maintenance.
