Preliminary Landscaping Phase Fees

The bridge between design and construction plays a crucial role in addressing any requirements for the landscaping crew before commencing the landscaping process.


Factors That Influence the Preliminary Landscaping Phase Costs

In this phase, any of the following may be addressed

Considering a Pool?

When installing a pool, Whyte Gardens and the pool company must work together and ensure seamless coordination.

This particular phase can be incredibly disruptive and emotionally taxing. It may take up to three weeks to obtain approval for the council application, and in some cases, it can even stretch to a year.

The process typically involves a period of 2-4 weeks for an engineer's assessment, followed by a six-week evaluation by the council, and finally, a three-week review by a building surveyor. As you can imagine, these timeframes can easily become prolonged.

Setting Expectations

It's crucial to have a clear understanding of potential obstacles and how long they may take to overcome in your project. It's also wise to be open to adjusting your expectations if needed. Sometimes, only after submitting your application do you realize that your property or home has specific requirements and additional needs. These extra challenges demand more time and effort.

Setting realistic expectations is vital, as is assembling the right team to handle your application. Furthermore, there are instances where designing your project in a way that avoids the need for permits altogether can be equally important.
