HOW CAN YOU MAKE YOUR GARDEN A PLACE YOU LOVE? 

 

Your garden serves as a destination to entertain family & friends, a place to create life-long memories with loved ones and as a destination to revitalise the mind, body & soul. No matter how big or small your space, it's all about working out what it is you really want from your garden.

SO HOW DO YOU WORK OUT WHAT IT IS YOU WANT FROM YOUR GARDEN?

The best place to start is by thinking about how you want to feel in your outdoor space... Kind of like when choosing a holiday - the mood you want to feel and the activities you would like to take place usually shapes your choice of destination, right? Well the same can go for mapping out your garden.

Once you have thought, or made a list, about how you want to feel and interact within your space, start collating images of interiors, holiday destinations, gardens, architecture... even fashion... that evoke these feelings. This collection is your tool to communicating the design of your space.

We then start the design process with an Initial Design Consultation. Here we take a look at your collection and the space {whether it be on site or over plans} and talk through ideas, wish-lists, likes, dislikes and how you see yourself and your family & friends interacting in the soon-to-be garden.

The consult usually takes 1 - 1.5 hours... and is always best to be approached with an open mind.

After the consult, a design brief and garden design fee proposal will be put together and sent via email.

Sketches and reports are not produced or given at the consult so it's always welcome for you to ask questions and take notes throughout the meeting. This is a good idea if you are intending on implementing the ideas yourself and are not planning on proceeding with a garden design service.

 

The Initial Design Consultation Fee starts from $220 inc. GST  


GARDEN DESIGN SERVICE

swanbourne project | slightly garden obsessed

From our conversations and inspiration images, we start to imagine what is to become of your space and begin turning the ideas into a visual 3D design. Once the 3D design is complete, we meet - with laptop in hand - to virtually walk through your space. This gives you an amazing insight into what your garden will look and feel like, and allows us to discuss the concept and make changes throughout the meeting. This is the first of three stages in our design process. 

The second stage is the detail drawings. After our first meeting the 3D perspective images are emailed to you for you to discuss between yourselves and provide comment on any amendments you would like to make. The updates are made, detail plans drawn up and emailed to review.

The third stage is final plan delivery. This is the complete drawing set including the 3D perspectives, detail drawings, lighting plan, planting plan & planting schedule.

For interstate and overseas clients, a phone or Skype meeting is made and plans are delivered via email or Dropbox and post.

Allow 4-6 weeks (depending on current project schedule) for the 3D design, 2 weeks for detail plans and 2 weeks for final plan delivery.

Garden design plans include, but are not limited to, the following..

  • 3D design

  • Elevations & sections

  • Planting plan

  • Lighting plan

  • Deck + pavement set out

  • Pool design

  • Schematic design for structures and features including patios, pergolas, ponds, arbors, walling

  • + more

 

Garden designs start from $6,200.00 + GST. An accurate design fee cost is determined after the Initial Design Consultation and is a set fee. 

After delivery of final plans an itemised quote can be prepared for installation by one of our preferred landscapers (Perth only).
