The design process begins with an initial on-site consultation with one our designers. We will discuss the design objectives you have for your property and any other needs you may like to consider.
After our initial meeting we will send you a written Design Brief, including a cost estimate for design work. Your Design Brief summarizes what we have discussed on site, outlines the design parameters and allows us to calculate an estimate for our lump sum cost.
Landscape Concept Design is a great way to ensure continuity in your landscape. Such a plan would identify key elements for the design such as the location and shapes of built features and planted areas, the types of materials and plants that might be used and the overall layout of the site. A Landscape concept Plan is intended to form the basis for all future work so that any further detail design is cohesive in style, theme and intended usage for the site. To prepare a Landscape Concept Design Plan, first a scaled base plan or site plan is required. We will measure and photograph your site together with existing site plans, floor plans, elevations, survey plans or aerial photos. Using the latest in Landscape Computer Aided Draughting software we are able to put together all the necessary site information in a manner that needn’t be redrawn later to form presentation documents. This ensures that all the work we put into your design always goes into adding more detail.
One of our talented skills is to also provide you a conceptual 3D Hi-Ended Images to your future project. This is usually a make a great difference in your choices in hardscape materials pools shape, plants, green spaces and lights. Because these high technique is costly in money & time, the 3D shots are done only upon the client’s require and his own charge.
A Plant Palette allows us to present you with a selection of plants that combine well together, will grow well on the site and suit your needs. As all plants have different needs in terms of soil, moisture, shade, sun and climate each garden area may only contain a few plants from the Plant Palette but it ensures that the overall look of the whole space is cohesive creating a ‘sense of place’. Once the mix of plants has been designed and approved, a Landscape Planting Plan can be developed. This is a technical drawing in plan view, which shows the position of plants in the project and determines their quantities.
