The Design Process

Initial Consultation: During this informal meeting, our designer will visit with you to discuss your ideas and to assess your requirements.  This will form the basis of a client brief to ensure that all of the aesthetic and functional options have been explored so that we can tailor your plan to suit your requirements and budget.

Site Survey: A detailed survey and analysis of your existing garden is undertaken to show boundaries, existing planting, features, levels and structures. In most cases Geo Designs will conduct this phase but in more extensive and complex sites a land surveyor may be required.

Vision Plan: Provisional plans are presented prior to the completion of the final garden design to ensure that our interpretation meets with your approval.  This coloured plan will include sketches as well as a planting strategy so that we can present our ideas.

Master plan:  This plan encapsulates the completed design prior to implementation and will be used as a reference as the layout plan for construction.  In some cases more detailed construction drawings are required to assist independent contractors to carry out more complex projects.

Planting Plan and Schedule:  Shows the location of new planting as well as the sizing and quantities, botanical description and notes regarding aftercare for ease of maintenance.
