Our aim at LANDesign is to create a landscape that suits our clients needs, and complements the design of the surrounding landscape and architecture. We work directly with our clients to create their vision, mixed with our experience of the best way to approach a project.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
The first part of any design process is to visit the site and discuss with the clients what their vision is. This includes discussing the look and style of the project, materials and plants, council requirements, and which parts of the design are priorities.
The next stage is to prepare concept designs. This gives the designer and clients an opportunity to discuss the design in more detail. Some projects move directly from the concept stage to installation, and don't require a more refined final design.
The final stage in the design is to prepare detailed designs with planting and/or construction drawings, and a site plan. These drawings can then be quoted on, and a schedule of works can be prepared that prioritises the different aspects of the design. This gives the client an estimated time frame and cost for each project.
Plans can also be submitted to council and engineers for final sign-off, including resource consent applications, and building consents for retaining walls, and decks, if they are required.
