As a qualified Landscape Architect, I am able to help you design and create all of your outdoor projects. My role is to advise and guide you with the choices you will have to take during the creation of a sustainable garden. Our collaboration is a multi-step process…
01. FIRST MEETING
During the first meeting at your home, we discuss together your desires, preferences and budget. I will then write and send you a clear, detailed and adapted quote for my design services. Once approved, we can begin our work.
02. TOPOGRAPHICAL SURVEY
To carry out a custom project, unique to your garden, a topographical survey is necessary. This can be done by a specialized company (especially in the case where a planning application is required) or by myself if the site does not impose any complications.
This first step allows me to present you with a general layout plan or a msaterplan, usually accompanied by reference images and/or 3D visuals. At this stage, we will be able to discuss the entire project, without going into detail, to make sure that it is convenient and meets your needs.
04. COMPLETE DETAILED PROJECT
Once the pre-project has been accepted, we get into the details: planting plans, lighting plans, technical sections, material definition. These include all the elements necessary for the successful completion of your garden by a specialized landscaping company.
If necessary, I can write a specification document that will allow us to hire the appropriate landscapers to carry out your project. Together, we will define the adjudication criteria specific to the project.
06. PROJECT MONITORING
Once the work is underway, I will regularly monitor its progress to ensure that the garden is carried out according to my specifications. There will be a constant dialogue between you, the landscaping company and me.
07. GARDEN MAINTENANCE
A garden is alive and it demands a regular maintenance to insure its durability. Therefore, I am able to help you find the right gardener who will take care of if once it is ready. If you prefer to take care of it yourself, no problem! I can write you a yearly maintenance guide to help you with it and give you an overview of the work to be done.
Each project is unique in terms of size, complexity and specifications, it is, therefore, very difficult for me to give you an average price for my services. However, my quotes are based on an hourly rate of 120CHF/h and I can provide you with the following price ranges:
– Initial consultation: Free of charge
– Consultation for advice: 120CHF/hour
– Project (Steps 02 to 04) of a patio, a terrace, a small garden: 580 to 1200 CHF
– Project (Steps 02 to 04) for a larger garden: from 1200CHF
– Execution (Steps 05 to 06): depending on the complexity of the project, it might be subject to a second quote
– Maintenance (Step 07): maintenance guide for small or simple gardens: 240 to 480 CHF
