PROCESS

Owen Landscape Architects (OLA) enjoy working with a full range of architectural styles, undertaking commissions across a range of scales and budgets: small urban spaces, suburban sites and large acreage properties are all of interest.

 

OLA is very flexible in the services offered to their clients. Our preference is to offer our clients a turn-key approach, managing the process through construction. Working closely with the contractor and being on hand to trouble-shoot unforeseen issues in order to maintain the designs integrity. Material sourcing; overseeing custom fabrication, the selection and placement of plant material; and the intricacies of intentional lighting are examples of this.

 

We work with quality landscape companies and often have a feeling for which team is appropriate for your build. We will ask them to quote the construction of your new garden and you are free to find additional quotes.

 

Should the homeowner decide to engage OLA beyond the design stage then there are typically 2 approaches: tendering to multiple landscape contractors requiring a full set of working drawings (to obtain competitive quotes) above and beyond the plan - incorporating grading, planting, lighting design, and construction details into a comprehensive package. Or, OLA can also work with a select quality contractor (or the clients) thereby streamlining the process.
