Landscape Concept Plans or Schematic Designs are typically two-dimensional drawings prepared by the landscape architecture company, to establish the detailed landscape layout, park and playground layout designs, or kindergarten playground designs, depending upon the project.
Jeavons use the terms “schematic design” and “concept plans” interchangeably in our landscape architecture services.
Landscape Concept Plans prepared by Jeavons are well-resolved, at a much more detailed scale than a Master Plan. They convey the layout of individual design elements backed up by explanatory notes, and illustrations or images. They are not working drawings for construction.
Landscape Concept Plans clearly show the relationship with buildings and doors; site levels; the location of fences and gates; the types of surfaces that will be used; the location of garden beds and trees; the position of various play elements, shade structures and furniture, and all other design features.
The purpose is to make sure the landscape consultant and the client are in complete agreement about the detailed layout of the space and how site levels will be resolved.
This stage usually includes:
The final Concept Plan is suitable for display, and for use in funding applications. It is also used as part of a Town Planning set, or Development Application, where these are required.
At this stage the Jeavons team usually prepares an opinion of probable cost (OPC) to check that the design is within budget.
3D visuals and landscape renders are also available and are costed separately. They are valuable to assist clients and the public to understand and visualise the concept.
Following agreement from all parties, designs will be further developed in the Design Development and contract Documentation stages.
