perth's Landscaping designers
All of our clients have a unique outdoor space or project in mind. Our job is to refine those ideas and inspiration and develop an exceptional and functional design that is unique, elegant and most importantly reflects your personality and lifestyle. We combine our practical know-how and design expertise to create a space that clients will enjoy and want to relax, entertain and spend time in for years to come. When a design is complete, we also provide construction and maintenance services, and can guide you through the entire process of bringing a landscape to life. Our comprehensive approach to landscape design helps to ensure that projects are completed to the highest standards, on budget, and on time.
We undertake the design process in two stages. Sketch stage is the initial proposal accompanied by a budget, the second stage is the concept stage based on your feedback and the revisions required to undertake the works with a fixed price construction contract the goal at the end of this stage. Here's how the process works.
STEP 1 - Design Consultation
An initial design consultation is our opportunity to explore the possibilities for your new landscape. This consultation is usually held onsite at your property, unless you haven’t commenced construction yet, in which case it is held in our design studio. During this consultation, we will ask questions and listen intently so we can fully understand your needs and expectations, we will also provide valuable input and ideas for how to best use your space. From this session a design fee proposal including a design brief will be prepared and emailed to you. On-site consultations incur a $275 fee and design studio consultations incur a $165 fee, consultation fees are discounted from your design fees should you choose to proceed.
STEP 2 - Sketch Plan Stage
This design brief together with your site evaluation enables us to develop a sketch plan. This illustrates the proposed layout of various elements, materials, finishes and colour scheme. Once this is complete, we meet with you again, and, depending on what design package you choose, a series of images, sketch plans and or 3D representations will be presented to communicate our combined ideas for your garden design. We will also provide you with an estimate for the scope of works.
STEP 3 - Concept Plan Stage
After the presentation of our sketch plan, if there are any additions or changes that need to be made, we will work through these with you to refine and establish a final concept design. Once the design is final, we'll provide you with a fixed price construction contract and talk you through the next step of getting started on your build.
Please note that these categories are a rough guide, each project is unique and your requirements may be greater or lesser to what is outlined here.
In our initial discussions with you, we will help you determine how comprehensive a design service you need. Depending on the needs of your site and your total landscaping budget, we'll recommend different levels of granularity. As a guide, here's what you can expect to receive depending on the scale and complexity of your project. Every level of service includes your initial consultation, a detailed quote, and design support throughout install.
In cases of smaller projects requiring only soft scapes, we will typically recommend a 2d schematic of the soft works and planting layout. Your estimate is likely to include two one hour meetings with your designer and one revision.
A project fits into this category if it requires soft scapes and only minor hardscapes such as retaining walls, pavements, decking and fences. In these cases we will typically provide a 3d model of your site, as well as a 2d concept plan and still images. Your estimate is likely to include a minimum of two one hour meetings with your designer and one design revision.
These projects typically include all of the above as well as major hardscapes such as pools, pergolas, outdoor rooms and kitchens, and anything else you can dream up. These projects are comprehensive and design handover will include a 3d model of your landscape design, rendered images and a video fly-through, as well as a 2d concept plan and still images. Your estimate is likely to include a minimum of two one hour meetings with your designer and one design revision.
