Site visits – To keep our prices competitive, our expectations are that you will provide us with the onsite measurements of the areas within the scope of the design. If you do not have measurements ready, we will endeavour to take measurements of the relevant areas within the consult time, however, additional charges are applicable after the consultation time ends. Our design packages include a minimum number of site visits. Additional site visits will incur additional costs.
Upcycling – Where possible we will incorporate sustainable recycling considerations (e.g. reusing extant materials) to avoid wastage, into our design and construction solutions.
Lighting – Lighting is an easy thing to cut from your budget, but before you do, consider how much it will extend your use and enjoyment of your outdoors. Well designed lighting using quality fittings catapults the project into wow territory.
Materials – materials will be suggested to best meet your needs. Materials specifications will be discussed and quoted on by the construction team or other specialists if involved, as part of the project coordination process. The responsibility for material selection lies with the client as the client confirms the scope and requirements for the project.
Cost estimation or quotes – On fully understanding your requirements, your unique design will be presented to you in a 60 minute catch up which, if required, may include providing a range of estimates for components in the project. If you find these acceptable, you are able to engage us as project co-ordinators to obtain and discuss a detailed quote for all project components which include facilitating the construction of the project and sourcing accessories/materials etc within agreed timelines.
Maintenance guide – For a nominal cost, we can also include a photo gallery, description and maintenance guide for the plants selected. We will strongly recommend developing a maintenance guide given the plant spent per project that is generally involved – as we all know, plants make or break your design!
Underground assets, services and connections – Enquiries with Dial Before You Dig need to be made in two stages – in the design and construction phase. We are happy to undertake the enquiry on your behalf during the design phase and invoice accordingly. It is your responsibility to form an informed assessment as to whether any third party assets exist on your property. It is the responsibility of the developer/builder/landscaper to ensure that no underground connections are affected or damaged during any landscaping works.
Design Disclaimer – In addition to other disclaimers disclosed here or elsewhere on this website (whether specifically described as such), we take no responsibility for any damage caused by trees that were selected and placed to meet the landscape design requirements of the relevant authority. The maintenance and care of all trees planted is the sole responsibility of the owner/occupants of the building/site.
A design drawing (unless described otherwise) is not to be used for structural/construction purposes. Any measurements are to be checked on site prior to any landscape works. It is the legal responsibility of the owner/client to obtain any necessary permits.
Design Rights and Intellectual Property – any designs drawn by Inspiring Landscape Solutions Pty Ltd remain our intellectual property. Use beyond which it was created for will be an infringement of this right. We do not assign our intellectual property but sell the right to use to anyone purchasing our designs.
