For anyone wondering how you go about getting a design plan for a project, here is a step by step explanation:
The construction process begins with a vision. This can be your vision or we can help you develop the details. A landscape design helps with the organization, budgeting and co-ordination of the work which ensures successful completion of the project.
The process begins with a consultation. The consultation cost is $150.00 plus HST.
We will meet with you to find out what your vision for the space is. We will want to know how the space will be used. Maybe you don’t really know what you want, but you do know that you don’t want to sit in the sun, that you love to eat outside or that you have kids that need an area to play in. Together we come up with ideas. It is a good idea to discuss the budget at this time so that a realistic plan is developed. We will discuss options for hardscape materials and plants at this time. At this meeting, a cost for a Landscape Design will be quoted.
If you decide to move ahead with a design, the consultation fee is waived.
While on site, measurements and photos are taken and the grades are checked. A scale drawing will be produced with all the components detailed. This would include hardscape and plant materials, any structures, as well as lighting.
Once the design is completed a detailed cost estimate is produced and presented for your examination. Keep in mind that many clients do large scale projects in two or three phases. Once the final design is presented, we then discuss how to move forward with each phase of the design.
