Re: St Valentine's Day Palm Massacre - vidjo

Dave, is Adian's potential new home in the shade of a hill to the south, or was that just passing cloud? Both the bottom pics show where you're standing to be shady, whilst the distance is in the sunshine. ...and the block of flats in the zoom appear to have miraculously shifted several hundred fee...

Re: From VIRTUAL to REALITY (BLOG)

Cheers guys. I have to admit I've become disillusioned with Facebook myself these days. I've been on there for years and feel it's become corporate Facebook rather than the people's Facebook. Saying that it's proving to be a pretty efficient blog tool these days and it suits my stuff quite well beca...

Re: From VIRTUAL to REALITY (BLOG)

Greetings fellow exoticists. I just wanted to pop up and say hi. Haven't been on here for quite a while and noticed a bit of interest surrounding some the recent stuff I've been putting up on facebook I was out of action for most of 2012 and couldn't return to the garden until late last summer. Anyw...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Thanks Dim. Hopefully, this demonstates the flexibility of my approach to Design better now. In regards to how it will relate to my own garden: Life hasn't gone according to the strict plan that I wanted. Unforeseen things have got in the way and put a huge delay on progress (kids do that, don't the...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

And here are the last few images I have of the actual garden as it progressed to a conclusion. CB1_14.jpg CB1_15.jpg CB1_16.jpg CB1_17.jpg CB1_18.jpg BTW - That's actually me in those images, not a digital body-double added in post-production (in case you're still wondering?).

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Continued. The first few pictures, yes the 'Virtual Ones', are of the model taken to it's furthest point for this job. Notice unlike the previous updates, it's digitally rendered (as in the rendering of Computer Graphics, not cement ). I added some indication of the Wisteria which was connected to c...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Garden Design Sample - Case Study 1.4 After the desired changes (the lawn and floating benches) were agreed with the client. I did yet another update to the model to incorporate these. We also discussed a more sleek hard-landscaping feature by the Cherry Tree. As the tree had grown and developed at...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Hi Kyle, I like your professional approach to the work and design, and I’m impressed with the fact that you have totally transformed the look of that garden with a very small budget for material cost! When you finished the decking you said that you estimated 10 days’ work to complete the job… is th...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Garden Design Sample - Case Study 1.3 Good questions, Billo. If you look at the original decking plan for reference. Within the 3D programme, I created a new circle object, then scaled and placed it on top of the decking so that it's lower lip lined up with the outer curve of the decking model. Fro...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Kyle's Garden Design Sample - Case Study 1.2 After discussions with the client about how to approach the garden, it became clear that it was the favoured place where visiting family members would congregate and catch up. Barbies were a regular occurrence so there would be a need for plenty of seatin...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Kyle, good solution. Out of interest, what made you decide to leave the Covers exposed rather that replacing with recessed covers with decking infill?. More complicated to build I know but better aesthetically. Cheer Billo. I discussed the options available with the client regarding the two covers ...

Re: Garden Design in the 21st Century

Sounds like a good project! If you don't mind me asking what did it cost materials and labour? Sorry Tom, I'm not sure if you're asking me or Dim. The decking materials and labour cost for that initial job are on that first image. I only charged £400 for labour, but she was letting us have a load o...
