This week: Working with people.

This is quite an important part of my job.

First impressions do count  when I visit a garden.

Relationships work both ways.

Over the years I have built up a good idea of which clients will benefit from working with a  garden

designer.

It is easy to see from the state of the garden those that are interested in gardening.

Having an interest does help.

The way a client acts on the consultation indicates future success.

Constant objections to ideas suggests a negative attitude.

Overbearing behaviour would prevent a very good result.

Therefore, try to think why you have contacted the designer.

What vision do you have of your garden?

Be aware that you will be working with another person.

Trust is important.

This can be a worthwhile activity if apprached with the right frame of mind.
