Collaborating With a Landscape Designer or a Gardener: How It Works
Step 1: Initial interview
A landscape designer meets you at your home in Paris or Île-de-France area. The goal of this first meeting is to define your landscaping project. Landscape architects help you conceive, visualise and define your green space, so that it is the most welcoming, relaxing and aesthetically pleasant.
Main takeaways from the first meeting:
- Inventory of needs
- Orientation study
- Environment study (soil…)
- Brightness & darkness (indoor space)
- Hygrometric measurements
- Early diagnosis of strenghts and shortcomings
All these takeaways will help your architect to formulate specifications.
Step 2: Specifications of your landscaping project
- Following the first meeting, the landscape designer or gardener sends you a proposal with attachments such as sketches, 3D plans and a list of suggested furniture, material and accessories.
- After you validate the orientation, more technical details are provided, that will ensure the proper execution of the project. These specifications are also intended to be shared with the company that will carry out the works.
- During this stage, landscape architects can design custom furniture for you, such as planters, basins, fountains, garden furniture, storage units.
Based on these specifications, several contractors are contacted in order to get quotes for the work execution. The landscape designer assists you in choosing the best offer.
Step 3: Execution by a gardener
There are two ways to execute the project:
- Your landscape designer or gardener is also in charge of executing the work
- Your landscape designer monitors the work performed by a contractor
Upon delivery of your project, you will receive all the information necessary for the proper maintenance of your space.
Works usually carried out in landscaping projects:
- Landscape masonry
- Container set up
