Design

We visit, listen and then together we set the vision. We will talk every step of the way…

We all know great design starts with a vision. We will listen to you and use our experience to help mould a project that will benefit and be sympathetic to the space, your learners’ needs and any restrictions on site.

Our instrument ranges look as well as sound stunning. Musical Gardens instruments can be tuned so the notes complement each other. This means no ‘wrong notes’. Custom colours are available so your Music Garden can reflect your school’s themes.

The layout is the make-or-break part of the Musical Garden design and installation. The instruments need to be at the correct height for users and installed so your musicians can interact and exchange musical ideas. This is great for team work and composing!

As well as looking at the big picture, we take care of every detail. This includes thinking about: Access, drainage, shade, noise restrictions, volumes, materials, sticks and beaters, flooring, the use of outdoor lighting, instrument resonance, power, colours, safety, outdoor speakers and microphones, corrosion proof fixtures, tamper proof fittings  — and including the fun factor.

We will provide you with an ergonomic and aesthetic design that will stand up to the demands of the great outdoors and the teaching and learning needs.

All Musical Gardens installations come with a risk assessment that is valid for one year or until there is a change of use— for example, when new instruments are added.
