Design stages

To ensure a landscape project can run smoothly from start to finish,  good planning is essential. At Grindstone Landscapes we pride ourselves on flexibility and the ability to work with other professionals at any stage of your project. Find below an outline of the different planning stages that we offer.


All stages are available as individual packages and are priced individually based on the project requirements and complexity.

Conceptual landscape design package

After an initial consultation with you to discuss the design expectations, likes and dislikes we will develop a conceptual Landscape design for all our outdoor spaces.
Once the Conceptual design is completed, I will present the design to you, including 2D plan layout and any inspirational images to visualize your project.
You will have time to review the plans and any potential changes can be incorporated into the design. Once the conceptual plans have been finalized the approval stage or if no approval is required the documentation stage can be started.

→ Design of all relevant outdoor spaces
→ Conceptual Landscape plan 2D
→ 3D image set
→ Plant palette
→ Furniture layout

Develompment landscape  package

The landscape DA package will include all relevant plans and details required by Council. Each Landscape DA or CDC plan is completed to the requirements of the relevant Council area and will include a basic landscape design of all outdoor spaces of the project.
Each Council has their own requirements for the landscape area of residential and commercial developments. It is important to comply with their requirements to ensure approval for the development will be given.

→ Deep soil plan
→ Planting schedule
→ Landscape calculations
→ Elevations

Design consultation & Styling
 

Small spaces don’t always require big plans; however, they still require thoughtfully selected plants, pots, furniture and other styling elements.
The same can be said for gardens that are well established but need to be invigorated or tweaked.


Our consultation includes:
→ Meeting to discuss your project
→ Follow up email with inspirational images
→ Ongoing support for the selection of feature elements
→ Plant list with images, botanical and common names
→ Material recommendation
→ Sketch if required
