Step 1 : Brief
We commence the design process with a complimentary meeting with the client to develop a comprehensive brief, discussing the client’s requirements, objectives and individual stylistic personality. We also discuss functional flexibility and long term goals, developing a thorough understanding of how the site can best be moulded to suit the lifestyle of the client.
Step 2 : Plan
We then identify the unique characters and constraints inherent to each site; considering aspect, altitude, soil structure and fertility, prevailing winds, minimum and maximum temperatures, average rainfall and any other individual criteria such as views, traffic noise, neighbours etc. Our designs are then thoroughly thought out, using the existing architectural style as a foundation, and accommodating all the above conditions and needs.
Step 3 : Quantify
All our designs are precisely costed with a detailed Bill of Quantities, to ensure optimum transparency for the client as well as ease of amendment to any particular features. This also allows us to easily coordinate a works schedule and collaborate with any associated professionals as required.
Step 4 : Install
During construction, all our jobs are fully supervised under the personal guidance of a project manager as well as the dedicated experience of an on-site supervisor. We work hand in hand with the various contractors and artisans to help ensure that each design is perfectly executed with the highest possible level of quality and care.
Step 5 : Maintain
In order to monitor that the landscape matures correctly over time, we also offer a maintenance contract for a renewable period of 3-12 months after installation so that we may ensure the landscape develops correctly.
