Design focuses on landscape planning and garden design. The design takes into account the architecture and geography, soils and climate, the need for an irrigation system, human and vehicular access and circulation, recreational amenities, furnishings and lighting, Our client’s needs and preferences are always taken into account and where possible indigenous plants are used and alien plants avoided; There are innumerable other design factors and considerations brought to the complex process of designing a garden that is beautiful, well functioning, and thrives over time. Gardens are dynamic and not static, after construction and planting are completed, and so in some ways ‘never done.’ Involvement with us for the management of the evolution and care thereafter depend on our client’s needs.
During the landscape planning process, we first assess your needs. Then, a professional landscape designer will develop your customized architectural design plan to meet your needs. This master concept plan includes plant legend with botanical name, common name and bloom time, hardscape layout (such as retaining walls, seat walls and steps) low voltage lighting, irrigation, feature elevation, notes, specifications and 3D color pictures of plant material, as well as features like fireplaces, water features, pergolas and arbors.
Our Exterior Landscaping team work with organisations large and small to create eye catching displays of foliage and flowering plants which make a fantastic first impression.
One of our garden design consultants will visit the client first to discuss their particular requirements. They will perform a site survey by taking measurements and noting any limitations or specific requirements that need to be taken into account.
Once we have a clear idea of what our client wants to achieve, we’ll put together a proposal of landscaping ideas which are specifically tailored to both the client and the exterior of the building; anything from water wise ecological gardens, rooftop gardens, indigenous plant displays, seasonal colour, herb or fragrant gardens to perfectly manicured lawns.CONTACT US
