During this Final stage, the initial concept is further developed as required to provide the client with greater understanding of the overall landscape design. This is the stage when landscape designer develop their ideas in more detail to ensure that the concept design is achievable and will meet the client needs. At this stage, our Landscape Designer also determines if there are any major issues (topographic, access, services, drainage, budget) as the design evolves and reviews with Engineers if needed to investigate and design their own design with greater detail.
Often clients see the initial concept plan but don’t fully understand that it is a concept and there needs to be further detailed design undertaken to resolve the initial concept and ensure it is viable (financially, constructibility, etc).
This portion is the final phase of design development and includes colour plans, sections, material palettes with notation about materials, colours, heights and more.
Depending on design scope and needs, this phase can also include highly detailed documents (plans, sections, details, material schedules) ready for landscape construction companies (and/or quantity surveyors) to provide an initial pricing (tender) on the project. This is usually determined based on design needs and client expectations during the initial discussions.
