Designing outdoor spaces is a journey between Landscape Designer and the client, a connection, an understanding which is based on clear communication, verbally and visually. Your outdoor space is the link between you and your home, it reflects who you are, the way you live and most importantly your own style. Each space should tell a story and serve a purpose, be it functional, practical, visual, an inspiring destination to enjoy with family and friends.
Our journey begins here and my Exterior Landscape Design Consultations are unique in a way that we gather important information leading up to our booking, why? Because I really want to know more about you and your project before we meet and saves valuable time on the day!
Your home, your style, the way you live outdoors, your budget, site plans, images of your existing site along inspirational visuals that you may have gathered from Pintrest, Houzz, Instagram is all vital criteria toward the planning of your ideal exterior space. It’s important that I digest such criteria to ignite a creative and extremely productive consultation.
On the day of our consultation, we discuss our collaborated ideas and I share my landscape design and construction expertise to create design solutions that are site specific, suited to your space and individual needs. This will include, but not limited to pool & alfresco design, retaining, steps, materials, outdoor cooking, lighting, reticulation and plants along with Council approvals and Engineering details if required.
Following our Consultation you will receive a curated PDF Mood Board outlining plant and material palettes, structural elements and styling advice. This is emailed to you along with my Exterior Landscape Design Proposal for your consideration.
Exterior Landscape Design Consultation Fee $300 + GST.
Please allow 1-1.5 hours for the on-site consultation and have pen and paper ready on the day!
If you are currently residing outside of Perth, Western Australia we can arrange a Consultation via Skype or telephone. Please contact me to chat about your project, the fee for this type of Consultation is also discussed.
If you choose to proceed with my Exterior Landscape Design proposal, the second stage of our journey together begins! Here, I start to create a conceptual design that reflects the curated PDF mood board.
Once I have spent time researching materials and plants I will sketch out my ideas and layout which is then transformed into a 2D computer generated Exterior Landscape Conceptual Plan. It’s at this stage 3D perspective imagery is created along with a 3D virtual walk-through video, all in preparation for the design presentation.
Deposit of 50% is due on acceptance of the Exterior Landscape Design Proposal
The 2D conceptual design, 3D perspective imagery and virtual-walk through video is presented to you along with material samples that I have selected for your design, a planting plan is also presented at this stage. The design presentation is held at your home so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. If renovating, it allows you to fully appreciate the material samples against existing surroundings and gives me the opportunity to double check any crucial on-site elements to ensure final design accuracy. Here will we will make amendments to the design layout if required.
At this stage I ask for a 30% progress payment for works completed to date.
Following the design presentation, the Exterior Landscape Design is detailed and completed. This stage includes amendments if required, material specifications, schematic lighting plan along with adjustments to the 3D perspective imagery and video if required.
Balance of payment is required to release final Exterior Landscape Plans
Exterior Landscape Design Fee
Every design I create is unique, site specific and very personalised, it’s definitely not a ‘one size fits all’ approach for me. Exterior Landscape Designs fees are based on the size of the property, design complexity and individual requirements for each project. It will also depend on the accuracy of existing site plans and whether I need to plot in existing structures, gardens and shoot some levels on site. These details are determined during our Consultation and clearly outlined in my Exterior Landscape Design Proposal that is emailed to you following our Consultation for your consideration.
