Why use a Landscape Designer?
Using a Landscape designer is often the best possible way to a good quality landscape. When it comes to getting a design done, many people find it to be a bit overwhelming about where to start.
The first step is for our landscape designer to meet with you at your Nanaimo residence and talk about what kind of design you are looking for. This way, we can get a clear idea of what you have in mind. During this visit, we also take a number of measurements to assist us with grades and dimensions. This gives us a better feel for the area we have to work with, and how everything will fit together. During this time, we will use our vast experience to give you the best design we possibly can. We will also ask you for your Real Property Report and also mention about getting utilities marked.
After our initial design meeting, we then take all the information and create a computer-generated layout. This will cover the locations of pathways, driveways, patios, turf, irrigation, beds & walls, etc. By doing this, we are able to give you a representation of the design. We also provide descriptions and breakdowns of the ‘how it is going to be built’ before we start building your landscape design.
Landscape Design benefits.
By drawing up a design, we are able to portray our thoughts to you. It will be a 2-dimensional design showing all aspects of your concept. Often we will incorporate examples of previous work, this will give you a clearer vision of what we mean. By creating a design, it is possible to give you a clear understanding of what we are going to build. This process helps to iron out any detail ‘wrinkles’ and see how everything fits with your design budget.
How much does a Landscape Designer Cost?
A landscape design will cost from $300 and up depending on how complex the landscape is and in order to provide a useful quote it helps if you are able to give us a budget. Our Landscape Designer Consultation fee is $75, this will cover a meeting that will usually be around 1.5 hours, to get a good detailed idea of what you had in mind and time for us to take any measurements required to go away and draw up a design for you. We will only be charged if you decide not to go with our design concept/quote. If you choose to use our services, then the ‘Design and Quote’ is free of charge.
