Our landscape architects/designers will meet you on-site (attracts a fee) or in our design studio (complimentary) to establish a landscape design brief. Consultations take approximately one (1) hour and include, design advice, ideas on areas within your garden, as well as: soil, planting advice and selection, construction advice, such as structures, fencing, decking, pools, retaining walls, paving, drainage, irrigation. Consultations do not include sketch drawings. After we have met, we would then provide you with a detailed design fee proposal outlining the scope of works discussed for your consideration.
Upon acceptance of the design fee proposal, the first stage is Sketch Design. Here we produce a sketch of the proposed landscape, images and items (from past projects) that would fit within the landscape and an associated itemised budget (based on the initial available budget) that we can work through and refine to bring it into line with where it needs to head.
Based on comments and outcomes from the sketch design and budget meeting, we rework the design with further details and 3D perspectives to provide a really good understanding of the overall project and to bring the budget to a lump sum fixed quotation. If required, we can take care of Planning Approvals if necessary in this stage.
Where required, our designers remain involved in the background of our construction projects preparing drawings for engineering and building licence items within the TDL scope. Planting, Lighting and as constructed irrigation plans also fall within this stage.
Once your design is complete, our experienced construction teams take on the role of ensuring the vision of the proposed design is brought to life during the construction or build process. Our construction teams have a wealth of experience in the fields of landscape construction and horticulture and are committed to delivering the highest standard of work on every project. You can rest assured that no matter how many hands are building your project, you’ll only ever deal with one point of contact – a construction supervisor who oversees all aspects of your project to ensure every element is delivered on time, on budget and above expectation.
