Phase 2: GARDEN DESIGN PLANS

Conceptualize. Develop. Present. Refine. Deliver.

 

Why invest in a Garden Plan?

A Design Plan puts the blueprint for your dream garden in your hands. With a Design Plan in hand you are able to: 

  • Implement your garden yourself - DIY, and 

  • avoid making costly mistakes due to limited plant knowledge

  • Implement in Phases according to your available budget, or

  • Implement the project in full. 

  • You can choose to work with us in person i.e. 1. ONSITE or 2. ONLINE

What is the Design Process and What do you get?

 

1. ONSITE service

Involves on site meetings and email/Zoom communication. 

Process - the Steps

  1. We meet with you to discuss your needs, likes & dislikes, garden styles, architectural style. We discuss possible initial ideas and concepts. (this is Phase 1: The Garden Consultation)

  2. We take measurements (for a new site, a site plan should ideally be provided), assess soil condition, and identify drainage or other factors that will affect the design. (There may be an overlap with Phase 1 depending on the size of the garden).

  3. The creative process begins! Taking all the information gathered in steps 1 & 2 into account we conceptualize a concept/s to present to you. 

  4. We now work together on developing the concept until we have it right, that is, a design that you’re happy with!

  5. This is the completion and delivery to you of the final to-scale drawings, plant and hard landscaping lists and estimate installation budget.

 

What you get:

We work with landscape design software and provide you with:

  •  full colour, detailed or basic layouts, in hard copy and electronically

  • together with full plant and hard landscaping lists and quantities.

  • garden walk-throughs are also available.

Process - the Steps

  2. We provide you with a Questionnaire to obtain any additional information not gathered in Step 1, and a Visualization Exercise   . 

  3. The creative process begins! Taking all the information gathered in steps 1 & 2 into account we conceptualize a concept/s to present to you.

What will the Design Plan cost you?

The cost of a Design Plan varies and is dependent on the size of the garden, the level of detail required, and therefore the number of hours required. We are able to quote this following a Onsite Consultation or Online Consultation. 

Revamps/Makeovers (local clients only):

There are times when a Design Plan is not required in order to move to installation phase, and we can cost and install from initial ideas and hand-drawn sketches, e.g. for revamps or spruce ups or small areas. This however, can only be determined following a Garden Consultation.
