step one – consultation

Stage one in OUR PROCESS is the initial consultation. We schedule a meeting on site, which provides us an opportunity to meet with you, understand your needs, view the site, discuss and develop ideas so that we can establish a brief for your project. This first meeting is an obligation free, no cost evaluation of your swimming pool, spa and landscape requirements.

We ask you to complete a design ‘Wish List’ prior to the initial site meeting so that we can take it back with us as part of our brief from you. We would also like to take digital images of your project to assist us in concept development.

We require a site plan and or survey of the property / area. We can assist you to organise one if required.

Design concepts are generated through the latest and the best in communicative design, which allows our clients to view and experience exactly what their proposed outdoor investment will look like, prior to commencement of construction.

Our design philosophy is simply based around the building of a partnership between the designer and the client to create high quality innovative and practical designs that reflect a client’s wishes, brief and lifestyle and in sympathy with the surrounding environment.

The landscape aims to successfully integrate the swimming pool, and indoor and outdoor spaces that compliment and enhance the specific lifestyle needs and existing architecture of your home.
