The design process starts with defining the client expectations and site analysis. The second step mixes the analytic and factual components with creative ideas to produce a sketch design. The sketch design works to bounce off likes and dislikes of the client and be able to further refine and define the project. A detailed planting scheme is then produced and a construction plan that is used to take the project to tender and choose a contractor. The last stage is the site management during the project construction.
