The first step in making your landscaping dreams a reality is putting pen to paper and writing down your ideal outcome. A landscape concept and planting plan is a detailed layout plan for your garden. During the design process we will take a full brief from you, survey your garden, and come up with a professionally hand-drafted and rendered scale drawing of your proposed garden.
Planting new flora in your garden requires a great deal more thought than many novice gardeners realise. A planting plan will essentially map out what plants to put where, creating a landscape that optimises the resources you have available. This plan will take into consideration the specific amount of space available,
the aspect, the soil conditions and the desired effect you want to achieve. It will graphically show the exact location, sizes and species of all new and existing plants within the garden.
Included on the plan is a plant schedule for easy reference. It lists both the botanical and common names of plants used, quantities and sizes. You will also receive a comprehensive plant reference sheet with thumbnail photos and easy to read descriptions on each plant to help you visualize the garden. This precise, easy to follow plan is ideal for the homeowner, designer or landscape contractor to price and to lay plants out on site. It will also include notes on design features and materials.
A comprehensive, full service concept and planting plan can typically cost anywhere between $800 - $2500, which is calculated based on your wish list, the size and scale of the property and the complexity of the garden design.
