If you’re curious as to how the landscape design process works from start to finish, read on to find out!

The Initial Consultation

When you start designing your new dream garden with Dapple, we always start with an initial consultation. This helps to lay the foundation for the entire project! In order to make your Sydney landscaping dream a reality, we will need to take into consideration your existing landscape, the local climate, your home and available space. This information allows us to start the process with all the necessary information to create a design that will be perfect for you, your home and your lifestyle.

We cater to the needs of all clients by offering online or in-person consultations! We offer our on-site consultation services in Western Sydney and the Greater Sydney area, but we can do online consultations for homes across Australia!

Concept Design

This is where your Sydney landscaping design really begins to take shape! Once the initial consultation is complete, our expert landscape design team can get started putting together a tangible design concept. Our design team works closely with you as the client to ensure this design fits your vision perfectly!

The concept design will include everything from plant selection to hard landscaping placement and colour choices. This will enable you to see how everything will work together and ensure it is exactly what you want. Our experienced horticulture team will be able to choose the perfect plants for your climate, soil, and personal preferences while ensuring everything is perfectly placed. This design will also make the most of the available space you have to create the ideal outdoor space for you and your lifestyle!

3D Modelling

3D modelling is an innovative tool that revolutionises the Sydney landscaping design process by providing a realistic and immersive visual representation of your design concept! We use advanced software to create detailed three-dimensional models that capture every aspect of your new outdoor space, from plant placements and hardscape elements to lighting and furniture. This technology allows you, as the client, to virtually walk through your future garden and visualise the final outcome. This makes it easier for you to make decisions about design adjustments and let our team know. By incorporating real-world data such as site topography and environmental conditions, 3D modelling enhances the accuracy and feasibility of your design to ensure the success of your landscaping project!

Getting Council Approval

Obtaining council approval is a vital step in any Sydney landscaping process and one that can be tricky to navigate alone. At Dapple Designs, we streamline this process for you by preparing detailed landscape design plans that include everything the council needs to know, such as plant lists, material specifications, and site measurements. Dapple’s team also manages the submission process, addressing any council feedback promptly to avoid delays!

Implementation & Construction

Once you are completely happy with the concept plan and the necessary council approval has been obtained, we can move on to the exciting part: implementation! This is where your landscape design concept turns into a reality. Dapple Designs ensures a seamless transition by coordinating all aspects of the build, including hardscaping, planting, and installing features like lighting and irrigation systems. The process starts with site preparation, followed by the construction of structural elements such as retaining walls, pathways, and garden beds. Each step is executed with careful attention to detail to ensure the highest standards of quality! Throughout construction, Dapple’s team addresses any site-specific challenges, adapting the plan as needed to maintain the integrity and functionality of the design. Regular communication with our clients keeps them informed and involved, ensuring the final result exceeds your expectations!

Our goal is to ensure your complete satisfaction with the finished project. From the moment we hand over the project, and beyond, we are always available to address any inquiries or concerns, helping you fully enjoy your new outdoor space.

Maintenance & Aftercare

At Dapple Landscape Design, we prioritise your garden's long-term health and vitality just as much as its initial appearance!
