Upon contact with Cycas Landscape Design from you, our prospective new client, we will respond via phone call or email to set up an initial consultation to discuss your needs, wants and aspirations for your landscape.
Unlike many landscape designers, Cycas does not charge a "call out" fee for this initial meeting unless travel time to and from the proposed meeting location is estimated at more than an hour. If this is the case we encourage you to come to our offices to discuss your garden.
The initial consultation is really about sharing information between us; the landscape designer and you; the landscape owner to get an understanding of what you want to achieve for your garden.
We will discuss anything and everything that is central to your lifestyles to things that you may want to incorporate into your outdoor home life that are new and unfamiliar. Materials, plants and lifestyle options will also be discussed as we want to get to know as much as possible about our customers so the design process is as streamlined as can be.
Following this initial meeting, Cycas will prepare a written quotation to prepare a conceptual landscape design for your garden. This fee will include the preparation of one landscape concept plus one further round of revisions to that landscape concept. If further changes are required an hourly rate is applied. Within the fee, we will also produce a bound and electronic document including images of all plants and materials included in the conceptual plan. We also print three hard copies and electronic copies of all plans as part of this fee.
