We work with municipalities, communities, private organizations and individuals to ensure an efficient and successful project from initial proposal through implementation.

01/

Initial meeting

The design process is discussed and agreed upon with the client at the initial meeting. The first site visit allows us to get a sense of the space and develop a client brief based on your specific needs and requirements.

02/

Conceptual proposals

Based on the brief developed after the initial meeting, a conceptual design proposal is prepared for discussion. Conceptual proposals include a landscape plan and 3D sketches, along with the plant and material color boards.

03/

Detailed proposals

Once the initial design has been agreed upon, it is then developed further by adding another layer of detail to the design. Drawings are developed to share with the landscape contractors and prepare a cost estimate.

04/

Tender

The construction package is prepared during the Tender stage of the project.

05/

Construction

Monitoring and managing the project during the construction phase.

06/

Completion and Aftercare

Once the project is complete and reviewed with the client, initial and after care advice is available for an agreed period of time.
