1. Consultation on the Site or Online
The first phase of the design process is the development of a landscape concept plan in a 3D model. The designer proposes how to shape the terrain, where to place certain functional zones, paths and other hardscape structures, which main plants and where to be used, also provides with the overall idea of the landscape design style. The plan gives a clear view of the designed spaces, the different levels of the site, the proportions, the design pattern and the color palette.

3. Detail Drawings
After it has been agreed on the landscape concept, the designer prepares the required detail drawings: a hardscape plan with dimensions, levels, quantities and other relevant information, terrain section plans, also front views, sections, 3D views of the designed hardscape structures (terraces, arbours, pergolas, steps, fences, and etc.), a lighting plan, a planting moodboard, a planting plan and a plant scedule. The designer selects the required materials, the colors and the textures.
4. Supervision of Installation Works
