Our 5 step process starts with an Initial Consultation (Free)
You will meet with Geoff White (owner and director of Forever Green) to establish your wants and needs and review your current landscape. This free consultation is a chance to throw around a few ideas and discuss the design process. Depending on the nature of the job we may be able to skip straight to the build stage.
We work closely with our clients to produce outdoor spaces and gardens that incorporate the clients wants, personality and style, along with all their practical needs.
You will be handed over to one of landscape architects. We will look to combine your preferences and current landscape with our designer’s creativity and expertise to create a concept plan. Our Landscape Architects embrace a wide range of styles from formal and classical garden design to contemporary and modern and New Zealand native. Whatever your needs, we are here to accommodate.
After changes are made (if any) to the concept plan, a planting and construction plan will then be drawn up. The planting plan details out the species used, locations and quantities for all planting in your landscape. The construction plan looks to include details and images of the structures to be built. Of course we encourage your input here to make sure we can create the perfect landscape for you.
Our QS will then price up the design and give you a clear indication of the cost of the build your dream landscape. Once confirmed a pre-construction meeting is arranged with your project manager to review our plan to complete your project and give you a timeline for the landscaping works.
Let the fun begin! Depending what you decided on for the landscaping, this is where our hard and soft landscaping teams supervised by the site foreman and project manager, implement the landscaping works. You just have to sit back, relax and watch your landscape be transformed.
