At all stages of the design process, we pride ourselves on excellent communication and we always ensure that we listen carefully to your questions and feedback. Collaboration is essential in ensuring your landscape design has met your needs and will help you to achieve a beautiful landscaped area to be enjoyed for years to come.
INITIAL CONSULTATION (Complimentary)
After you contact us, we meet for an initial consultation. In this meeting we have a brief discussion about your landscape needs (and dreams!) and tell you about our services and also show you some of our past designs.
QUOTES & COSTS
We then send you a quote based on the size of the area to be landscaped, proposed garden features and other requirements indicating cost for each stage of the design process. You can choose to begin with a concept design and then decide on other services as we move through the process.
2D CONCEPT DESIGN
The concept plan is the first stage of the design and documentation process. We meet again to have a more detailed discussion about your landscape and what your requirements are. At this stage a site analysis will be completed and this includes taking measurements, a soil analysis and looking at existing garden elements. Then the completed concept plan will be presented to you and will indicate hard and soft landscaped areas, planting areas and other garden features such as pools, decks, pergolas and water features.
FINAL 2D LANDSCAPE DESIGN
If you would like to proceed to the next stage we meet to discuss changes and additions to the concept plan and move onto the final landscape design. The final 2D landscape design includes finalizing hard and soft landscaping, a planting plan and specifications, landscape materials schedule and specifications for garden features.
If needed a construction plan can be completed based on the 2D Final design and this will include section drawings of garden features, elevations and a drainage plan.
We specialise in creating 3D views of our landscape designs. This is a great way to see what your finished garden will look like before you have even started construction!
