We start the journey with an Initial Landscape Design Consultation. This is done on-site if residing in Perth, or over plans via Skype/phone if interstate or international. Once a booking has been made, I will email you a Pre-Consult Brief.
The Brief helps you begin thinking about your outdoor space, be it one particular area or many different spaces. Compiling a list of what you need and how you want to live outside will determine how the design will take shape. Collecting images you are drawn to and which inspire you is also part of Pre-Consult Brief process. All of this becomes important tools of communication we will use throughout our Consultation. Site and house plans are a must. If you don’t have these on hand, contact your local council or give me a call.
The initial landscape design layout really takes shape at the Consultation. If we are on site, we walk around your property and talk through ideas, making reference to your Brief and images along the way. I also check site plans, the lay of the land and point out any landscape design technicalities so we can discuss design solutions. The Initial Consultation usually takes 1-1.5 hours depending on the complexity of the garden design. It’s always a good idea to take notes and ask lots of questions throughout the Consultation. It’s also my role as the landscape designer to encourage open communication and ask you lots of questions!
Once the Consultation has taken place and we have nailed the direction of the design a PDF mood board is created to help you clearly envision the look & feel, material palettes, selection of plants plus furniture & accessories. The mood board along with an accurate cost for the Landscape Design Proposal is emailed through to you. This is a set fee.
Head to Stage 2 - Landscape Design
The fee for an on-site Initial Landscape Design Consultation is $275 incl. GST.
If residing inter-state or internationally, please send me an email with details of your project and I will be in touch to discuss process and fees.
The second stage of the journey is to turn our initial consultation ideas into a garden design. This can be presented to you in both 2D and a 3D visual design depending on which options you choose from the Landscape Design Proposal.
