We make spaces that people are proud of.

Crux Landscape understands the importance the garden has in the quality of life for our clients and we will work with you to ensure your green oasis is everything it can be. We love creating spaces which are exciting and unique, tailored to the specific tastes and needs of our clients.

We always discuss and customise our approach based on the specific requirements of each client and project. Typically we adopt a 3-stage design process, outlined as follows:

Concept Design Phase

This phase is all about identifying what your needs are, the constraints of your garden and the preparation of a basic design. We will typically provide you with a plan of the design which outlines materials, products and plants. This is accompanied by supporting imagery to enable you to clearly understand the proposal. It’s main role is to form an agreed direction early in the process to avoid rework during more intensive phases.

Detailed Design & Documentation Phase

The role of this phase is to fully develop & resolve your preferred garden design. We document it in detail to allow the design to be accurately quoted and constructed by trusted landscape contractors. We will prepare drawings which document all aspects of the design along and a detailed landscape specification written, which holds contractors to the highest quality of construction practice. Where we reach the limit of our expertise, we will work with specialists in their fields during this phase such as surveyors and structural engineers.

Contract Administration Phase

During this phase we will seek quotes, prepare a contract and work with the preferred landscape contractor to program & monitor construction of the garden. We typically request quotes from multiple landscapers to ensure that you get the best possible value. We can also act as an intermediary between you and them during the construction period. This ensures that your wishes are fulfilled in a fair and balanced manner while protecting you from some of the more tedious aspects of the construction process.

We can provide you with a detailed costing at every phase of the project as well as assisting with up front budgeting so you can understand how far your funds with go. In addition we will provide you with an outline of the carbon emissions associated with the project along with the offsets created.

Need something more? Ask us! We have a suite of other skills beyond the above, including 3D modeling and other forms of visualisation and are only to happy to employ them if you need. You are also welcome to check our previous experience out on instagram if you would like some ideas to get you ticking.

Lend us a space, we will make it better.

Our fees vary depending on the scale and complexity of the project however a typical backyard scale project, involving all of the above phases would incur a fee in the order of $5,000-10,000. If you are not sure where to start we can undertake an in-person design consultation with you and provide some initial thoughts for a fee of $500. Contact us to talk through your specific requirements and we we can tailor our process to suit your needs.
