Landscape Design Process in Sydney

We are with you all the way.

Landscape Site Consultation

This is a critical stage in achieving successful design, as it’s an opportunity to meet you and familiarise ourselves with your existing landscape. We can discuss your vision and ideas and get an understanding of how you wish to use your outdoor space.

Following the consultation, a design brief with fee proposal will be developed to outline your project, accompanied by a “terms of engagement” for you to review and sign before you proceed to the next step, developing a design. The consultation will take between 30 to 60 minutes and we will look at broad design options, your budget and time scales for the project.

Concept Design

On receipt of our signed terms of engagement we will return to the project site to undertake a full site analysis, take digital images and document all relevant landscape design information.

At this stage we ask that you have ready for us a copy of any relevant plan or survey of your property, so we can provide a more accurate and efficient service.

Based on the design brief, we will prepare a plan detailing the proposed landscape design, structural elements, planting style and material suggestions.

OUTHOUSE design can offer clients the unique ability to view the potential garden not just in plan view, but in 3D.

Our design office provides a cost efficient way for clients to model a variety of different garden options.

Having this additional information allows our clients a greater visual understanding of the proposed landscape.

Construction Documentation

After consultation and confirmation that you are happy with the Concept design you can engage us to prepare Construction Documentation or detailed drawings.

This stage may include the preparation of the following:
• Site set out plan
• Planting plan
• Detailed drawings and specifications for construction

The set of drawings to be undertaken will depend on the individual site and the scope of the design.
