Design

By using a collaborative approach we develop thoughtful, liveable designs that are based on aesthetic features. We create beautiful, outdoor spaces that are sympathetic to the surrounding architecture and natural environment. Our work ranges from bespoke residential garden renovations to landscape designs for new home builds, including the preparation of landscape plans for Development Applications and Complying Development Certificates.

ED Landscapes is a Landscape Design Institute professional member.

OUR DESIGN PROCESS

STEP 01 – DISCOVERY MEETINGS

We get together on-site and go through your wish-list and brief in detail, sharing conceptual ideas. We’ll identify and discuss any challenges that you may have with your site, discuss maintenance requirements, your budget and some possible construction processes that may be involved.

We have two types of discovery meetings:
A. New home build – please allow around 45mins to 1 hour for this.
Find out more about our new build design packages here.

B. Bespoke garden renovation – please allow around 1 to 1.5 hours for this.
Find out more about our garden renovation services here.

STEP 02 – PROPOSAL

If you are undertaking a bespoke garden renovation project, following the discovery meeting we will send you our design fee proposal based on the brief taken during our meeting.

If your project is a new home build, we will be in touch with you following our meeting on-site to determine if you would like to move ahead with one of our new home build design options. Find out more about these options here.

STEP 03 – CONCEPT PLAN AND 3D RENDERS

We develop a concept plan for your garden, taking into consideration all elements of your brief so we can create a design that best suits your home. To assist with visualisation of the design and help you get a feel for your garden before it’s built, we will then provide 3D renders of the concept.

STEP 04 – CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION

This is one of the most integral parts of the process, that allows your design to be translated into reality by a construction team. We provide a set of plans with specifications for all built elements and details for plants and materials. We can also produce any documentation needed for the submission of Development Applications (DA) or Complying Development Certificates (CDC), should your project require and can engage any specialist consultants e.g. Engineers and Arborists when necessary.

STEP 05 – BUILD

Now the build of your dream garden can begin!
