As a landscape architect Melbourne based, Jeavons seeks plant materials well suited to local conditions, and we seek specialist advice regarding plants in other environments outside Melbourne.
There are typically four components of a Planting Design:
The Planting Palette
A planting palette is an illustrative document that shows the intended combination of plants within a space. It is not a plan but is intended as a point of discussion with the client, to discuss their preferences. This precedes the planting design.
The plants are selected for their suitability to the local environment, for children’s use, and for the intended purpose. We use photos of the plants to convey the feeling, the colour palette, and the forms of the proposed plants.
Jeavons usually prepares this planting palette as part of the Design Development stage.
The Planting Plan
A full Planting Plan is an accurate, detailed plan used to communicate exactly where each plant will be placed on site. It is typically part of a set of drawings intended for town planning, tender or construction.
The Planting Schedule
The Schedule accompanies the plan and is a summary of every plant species in the design. It details each species botanical name, type, established size, quantity required, pot size, and any additional information required.
Details and Specifications
This set includes drawing details and a written specification for soil preparation, planting details, and protection of plants.
These form part of our detailed contract documentation package.
