INITIAL DESIGN CONSULTATION
The initial design consultation fee starts at $250, and depends on location.
This consultation takes around 1 - 1.5 hours, on site or online (Skype, FaceTime) for interstate and overseas clients.
It's a chance to gain advice about improvements that can be made to your property. You may like to take notes as sketches or written recommendations aren't provided during this consultation.
We'll become better acquainted and you'll become familiar with how I work and what I do.
You may decide this service is enough to give you some ideas to get you started on your own. However, if we proceed with the design process, this initial fee will be waived.
LANDSCAPE DESIGN SERVICES
Designs can range from $2500 for a small courtyard to $6000+ for a large garden. Natural outdoor playspaces start from around $5000, while commercial landscapes vary greatly.
The design fee is calculated after the initial design consultation and is a set fee. A deposit is paid on acceptance of the fee proposal, with the balance payable in two equal instalments.
On completion of the site survey and analysis, it is usual for the Design Concept to be provided within four weeks, depending on the project schedule. Allow another 3-4 weeks for the Final Plan Set. Drawings include:
Mood board & project palette
3D visualisations: perspectives and flythroughs
Hard Landscaping Plan (including paving treatment, decking, structures, water features/pools, lighting)
