The Benefits of Landscape Design

  1. Clear picture of end goal
  2. Comprehensive checklist for you and your contractor
  3. Much more accurate quote(s) for Construction
  4. Allows you to compare quotes and keep contractors accountable

It’s easy to underestimate the value of the design process in the rush to engage a contractor. Here are just a few of the reasons why this investment is a ‘no brainer’ to save you time, money and stress.

You wouldn’t build a house without first consulting an architect or building designer, outdoor spaces are no different. Consulting a qualified, experienced  Landscape Architect or Landscape Designer will get you a better result every time – here’s what an expert can provide;

  1. Clear picture of end goal. Visual representation of all the functional and aesthetic considerations that are unique to your site, your lifestyle and your taste. Every design is as different as its place and its occupants. Your designer will guide you through the process to a solution based on your needs and desires, so that you and your contractor can clearly understand what you are working towards.
  2. Comprehensive checklist for you and your contractor. All elements and inclusions (even items that still need resolution) are clearly set out and notated on one plan. Think of it as a checklist for you and your contractor. They can clearly see all the materials required to construct your design and measure the quantities required.
  3. Much more accurate quote(s) for Construction. It’s almost impossible to give you comparably accurate quote from a site visit and verbal brief from you. A well designed plan gives your contractor all the information they need to know the materials, labour and any other specialist contractors or bespoke items required to complete your project.

Allows you to compare quotes and keep contractors accountable. When receiving quotes from multiple contractors, you can compare apples with apples, if everyone has been given the same information, you can ask targeted questions to ascertain why one quote came in higher or lower than another and make an informed choice on who you engage.
