How Online Garden Design Works
Five easy steps!
It’s all done online, so it doesn’t matter where in NZ you live. One of our down to earth, kiwi-based designers will work with you on our digital platform to create you a personalised garden design, developed following five easy steps.
1. Select a Service
Browse our Design Store for our affordable, fixed price garden design services and decide which option best suits your project. Within 24 hours of completing the on-line purchase, you will receive the on-line project guide. This has all the info needed to get that landscape planning underway and your ideas out of your head and into the garden.
2. Provide us with your info
Simply complete the on-line project brief and follow the instructions in our down loadable guides to provide us with the info we need and we will assign a design expert to your project.
3. Concept Development by Your Design Expert
Armed with your info, your design expert will begin the exciting process of turning ideas and dreams into something of substance.
If we require additional info or input, we just contact you and ask the necessary questions before getting stuck into doing what we do best, designing beautiful garden spaces. We won’t take it too far at this stage as your early feedback will be sought. After all, it is your garden!
4. See Your Garden Taking Shape on Screen
We want to ensure you love the direction we are taking with your design so as soon as we have a basic garden concept ready for your review, we set up a screen-share meeting where you will get to see how your design is shaping up.
Your design expert talks you through the layout on-screen and explains the thinking behind the proposed garden design ideas and details, which will have been based on the wish list you will have provided using one of our online tools. Your input and feedback mean you control the final design direction.
5. Your One-of-a-kind DIYdesign is Delivered
Following the screen-share feedback meeting, professional drawings you can use to implement your new garden are finalised. These are full of information, design notes and tips to give your garden the bespoke designer touch.
Along with electronic files, a printed copy of your one-of-a-kind DIYdesign is delivered to your doorstep, so you can get started on the most exciting part: transforming your existing site into your dream garden.
How we Develop your Garden Concept Plans
Stage One: Existing Site Plan
First, your garden designer will first draw-up your existing site plan using either existing plans or the measurements you have provided along with your photos, coupled with land information data they will source online.
This lets you confirm our interpretation of the existing landscaping and site conditions. From this we will develop your landscape concept plan.
Stage Two: Draft Concept Plan
Then, your Garden Designer will produce a draft landscape design incorporating the key landscape components you have requested from your completed wish-list, overlaid with their expert ideas.
This is then reviewed together in a scheduled on-line screen-share meeting, to ensure we are on the right track and to resolve any uncertainties.
Stage Three: Developed Plan
Next, the developed Garden Design is finalised, based on your feedback during the on-line meeting. Final design and garden layout adjustments are made to the landscape plan.
This then forms the basis of your garden concept, which will contain the more detailed information on ideas, materials and components shown in the plan.
Final Stage: Finalised Concept
Your finalised concept will be supplied as an emailed PDF or printed & couriered hard-copy plan.
It will include:
- An easy to understand, personalised plan for laying out your garden or landscape
- An individualised palette of landscaping materials put together specifically for your project
- Additional ‘splurge’ items should you wish to give your garden an extra touch of luxury
- Suggestions and suppliers for readily available modular or prefabricated landscape components
- Tips for professional finishing
