Our Design Process

Site Visit

Initial Visit and Consultation

During our site visit we discuss all the issues, your tastes and requirements, to the extent of formulating a brief and setting the parameters for the design. Subsequently, we will provide you with a scaled basemap listing features of your existing site, notes for your future plans as discussed during the visit and a fee proposal for design work.

Cost: $150

Landscape Design Conceptual Drawing Example

Conceptual Sketches

The garden design begins with artists impressions and supporting visuals to show you how the final garden will look. It acts as a discussion document allowing us to present our ideas and talk through any changes you may wish to make, as well as being a blueprint for project phasing (if necessary) and further detail design work.

Layout Plan and Specification

The Layout Plan incorporates any amendments agreed with you and is the larger scale, detailed Plan from which a landscape contractor will be able to cost, set out and build the garden. A Specification, together with any necessary construction details of specific garden features, will accompany the Plan.

Landscape Design Planting Plan Example

Planting Plan and Schedule

The Planting Plan shows the location and spacing of all the plants, both new and existing, in the design. The accompanying Plant Schedule lists the plant names, sizes and quantities and is used for costing, ordering and setting out the plants.

Planting and Project Monitoring

Once we source, supply and set out all the plants in your garden, we will begin planting. To ensure a satisfactory outcome we are available to monitor the progress of the garden as it is being implemented and make site inspection visits as required.
