Pepo Botanic Design offers design consultation to commence the design process. During a consultation,we gain an understanding of your brief, the layout, aspect and site conditions. Ideas, budget and the design process is discussed at this time. The design fee proposal will be drawn up after the design consultation.
A horticultural consultation is provided before garden development, plant selection or a maintenance contract is drawn up. During this time, we gain an understanding of your brief and discuss the recommended changes to the existing plants, soil, garden layout and features such as pots, lights and sculptural elements.
Design & Garden Development
Our Garden Design service provides you with a Concept Design package and Construction Documentation for your garden. A garden design is required if you are making substantial changes to your garden and/or require a Development Application. There are two main parts to the Garden Design process: Concept Design and Construction Documentation.
The Concept Design will provide you with a visual representation of the overall garden. Drawings will include layout plans, sketches, images of planting style, materials, finishes and features; all illustrating the look and feel of your garden.
The Construction Documentation includes plans, drawings and documents required to accurately cost and construct the project. The amount and type of documentation varies according to the project but would typically include:
- Materials required and a finished plan
- Set out plan
- Levels and grading plan
- Planting plan with plant schedule
- Services plan (lighting, irrigation)
- Landscape sections, elevations and details
You would choose a Garden Development package over the Garden Design if you are developing an existing garden and require simple layout changes, plant and material selection for the whole garden or certain areas. Gardens that we develop then go on to be maintained by our horticulturists withthe changes implemented in stages or all at once.
The Garden Development package includes images of plant and material suggestions, notes on plant and material placement and how the soil is being developed. It also includes irrigation, lighting and feature suggestions. It may also include some sketches if required.
