Mud Office offers a garden design that covers all aspects of the garden design process. Over a series of consultations with the client, the garden design develops to include pools, paving, decking, outdoor kitchens, exterior structures and planting. This process is designed to provide all the information required to create a beautiful garden.
The design of your bespoke garden design begins with an initial meeting on site with the clients. This meeting allows us to understand the existing and unique site conditions. We invite the clients to share their aspirations for the project and to impart their brief. We assist the clients at this meeting with actionable advice and information. Following this preliminary consultation, we prepare a Landscape Fee Proposal. The Landscape Fee Proposal includes the project brief and scope. A fee is charged for this preliminary consultation.
The concept package illustrates the proposed layout, materials and planting palette. The package includes plans and views to clearly express the design outcome. It is a fluid, working document that is developed in close consultation with the clients. Once the design is signed off we proceed with Documentation.
The documentation package includes the information required to price and install a project. This package generally includes a landscape plan, planting plan, planting schedule, lighting plan, details and specifications. This document is used to tender the project.
Mud Office can recommend experienced landscape contractors to tender on projects if required. We can review tenders and assist with engaging landscape contractors. The tender will be accompanied by the cost of plants procured through Mud Office from reputable wholesale nurseries. Mud Office can also assist in the selection and acquisition of outdoor elements such as loose furniture and art.
We can prepare the plans and documentation for any permits required.
Mud Office can source planting if required from wholesale suppliers.
