Our Design Process

Good landscape design starts with comprehensive site analysis to assess each locations’ opportunities and constraints. Combined with your brief, we develop a plan to suit your desires, lifestyle and budget.

We excel in collaborating with clients to help them achieve a garden that reflects their needs, personality, and is suited to their specific location.  We can take care of all aspects of the design process, or any single aspect as requested.

01

Initial Consultation /
Preliminary Design Meeting

An initial design consultation generally takes 1.5 hours.  The aim of this meeting is to ensure that we understand and consider the key elements that will impact on the overall design.  This includes a site analysis and discussion of your horticultural and lifestyle needs and results in a Fees Proposal outlining the costs, deliverables and timeframes for your project.

The cost of this service is $300 (+GST) deducted from our design fees if you choose to proceed with our design services.

Alternatively, we also provide stand-alone horticultural and/or design consultation services at $300 (+GST) for a 1.5 hour consultation. At the end of the on-site consultation we will forward a written report of the consult.

02

Landscape Concept Design / Plan

Information gathered during the initial consultation will be used to prepare a Landscape Concept Plan.  We will discuss and confirm structural elements, materials to be used, and planting schemes with you to prepare the first draft Landscape Concept Plan.   Included in this process is an opportunity for you to review the initial Landscape Concept Plan and provide feedback prior to our team developing the final Landscape Concept Plan/set of drawings.

The cost of this service begins at $1750 (+GST) for a standard front or backyard concept plan, including planting plan/schedule.  Additional revisions are billed at $100 per hour (+GST) for additional site meetings and design time.

03

Quote for Construction
and Installation

Following the completion of your design, we can provide a quote for construction and installation of the project.  See our construction page for more information.

04

Council Approval

Not all Landscape works require council approval, however Dig Landscape Design has the experience to successfully navigate the Blue Mountains City Council development application process on your behalf.  The council approval process includes research, preparation and lodgement of your project with local council.

The cost of this service is $120/hour (+GST) and does not include fees payable directly to local council.
