Design  Consultation

The 'Design Consultation' takes place onsite where we view the existing garden and make observations about the surroundings and any factors that may affect the design. Your requirements are discussed and a ‘Client brief’ is compiled on which we base our concept design. The construction budget is also discussed at this meeting to guide the design and determine what is achievable within certain constraints. For your convenience we can meet in the evenings or weekends by appointment. If further design services are not required, the initial consultation fee which is a minimum charge to cover time and travel costs is now due and is payable by cash on the day.

Concept Design and Image Sheet

If happy to proceed, a Site Analysis is produced from our onsite observations. If existing site plans are not available, the site is measured and the base plan can then be electronically drafted. A Landscape Concept plan is then developed, with the Client brief in mind. This design will evolve until you are satisfied with the direction of the concepts. To help visualise the design, an image sheet of suggested materials will also be provided

Planting Plan and Image Sheet

Once the concept is approved, a 'Planting Plan' including a plant schedule detailing individual plant species, quantities and pot sizes, will be drawn to scale, based on discussions from the initial consultation or from on-going client contact. A 'Plant Image Sheet' showing proposed plant images will accompany the 'Planting Plan' again for visual reference. Payment for design fees are due after the presentation of the planting plan.

Construction Drawings and Tendering

Documentation/Construction drawings, elevations & drawing details will be issued if the landscape contractor requires them but will incur additional time & fees which the client needs to be aware. You are encouraged to get construction quotations from at least 3 landscape construction companies. You will need to provide them with copies of all relevant plans. Factors which may also impact the price are travel time (perhaps choose a local company), access to site, grade / sloping block, bad weather.
