Residential Landscape Design
A fantastic garden begins with good design. Landscape design has evolved over the past few decades. It no longer consists of just a few shrubs and some lawn. People want their gardens to be inspirational, practical, eco-friendly, and individually tailored to suit their lifestyle. The right landscape design is essential for the success of any new garden.
The landscape design process consists of a few stages, that need to be undertaken in the following order to produce the best design solutions for your garden.
The first meeting takes place on site and generally takes about an hour. From this meeting, we can develop a detailed understanding of your needs and requirements from the garden. Generally, some topics to consider and discuss would include, entertainment areas, lawn areas, formal or informal style, low or high maintenance, types of plants - likes/dislikes and construction budget.
Based upon our discussion at the initial consult, a fee proposal will be prepared and emailed to you. Later should you engage us to undertake the construction of your project, we are happy to deduct this fee from our quotation.
Upon acceptance of the fee proposal, we will arrange to visit the site for a second time. During this visit, we will gather information such as, site measurements, topography, aspect, views to retain or block, height changes etc. Any documentation that you can provide us with, such as building drawings, would be greatly appreciated.
Based upon discussions from the initial consult and the information gathered form the site analysis a scaled landscape plan will now be produced. The landscape plan will include everything required for a contractor to provide you with a quotation. It is accompanied by a specification booklet detailing all materials, such as timber, pavers, plants, irrigation and lighting to be implemented to the finest detail.
We have over 20 years’ experience in the landscape construction industry. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than building our own designs. Along with the landscape design we will give you a quotation to construct your project, with the design fee deducted.
