Each client and garden is unique so custom made or a la carte design and construction options are developed to suit each individual clients needs and budget.
An onsite consultation to discuss and establish a client brief, understand the scope of work and discuss broad concept ideas. Following this initial meeting a fee proposal outlining the landscape design process and associated costs will be submitted. A fee is charged for this initial consultation.
SITE ANALYSIS & CONCEPT PLAN
Upon confirmation a site analysis will be undertaken. The client may have existing architectural or survey drawings that can assist with this stage. Large or very steep sites may require a property survey to be undertaken by a qualified land surveyor. An initial landscape concept plan is produced and reviewed.
LANDSCAPE DESIGN PLAN
Once the concept plan has been finalized and approved a detailed plan is produced which includes a detailed planting plan, material recommendations and if applicable lighting plans.
With the landscape design plan an installation estimate can be obtained. Carina works with a group of skilled quality contractors who can provide an estimate or the client may choose to use their own contractors.
Project management services can be provided by Carina at strategic points of the installation or for the full project based on the client's preference. Fees to be confirmed based on the scope of project management services.
