What’s the process?

  • Residents complete a pre-visit questionnaire via email which provides us with good insight into you, your lifestyle and home.
  • We gather some basic site information via internet sources and develop a to scale base map. If you have existing property maps we can work from these instead.
  • Two – four hour visit to your property consisting of:
    • Approximately 30 minute meeting with resident/s.
    • A basic vision statement is drafted – this provides a clear vision for where you’re heading with your property.
    • Approximately 1-2 hour solo walk around the property where rough hand drawn, non-colour and not to scale sketches are drawn.
    • 30- 40mts: Walk back over the property with resident/s and talk through all design concepts. Ideas are revised and refined throughout this process until a clear concept is established.
    • Back at home, we’ll draw up the design to scale, in black and white, compile the report and email it all through to you.

Please note, detail around plant varieties, building or landscaping materials are not provided as part of this design option.
