Specification Writing for Garden Design


This specification 'workshop' explains a method of producing instructions for garden design work which can be tailored to an individual designer's current project. The model specification has been developed over many years and is thoroughly tried and tested.  It has been kept deliberately  brief and is flexible enough to allow designers to expand a contract to suit their needs, and to allow use of their favourite products and plants.

Bound in a handy 'flip chart' format, the book's pages are printed with the model clauses on the right-hand side, and with advice, reminders and other comments to the left. The clauses themselves are also reproduced on CD-ROM – attached within the last pages of the book – so that they may be downloaded by designers for their own adaptation and use.
