Our Process

Follow the steps for a guide on our design process and pricing. After the design phase a ‘Manage and Complete’ process will be set in motion.

1. Consultation / Site Visit

You have decided to upgrade your garden, or outdoor entertainment area and want to speak to a professional for ideas and a costing.

Before consulting with us, it is advised you collect photographs to share your vision. Our experience will help you define a realistic framework within site conditions and budget restrains.

Our creative team can present you with ideas, if this is something you don’t have time for, we are happy to be of service.

A site visit of R550 includes up to an hour consultation, R450 p/h thereafter within the Cape Town area.

• photographs and a brief survey of the area,

• identifying feature areas and discussing ideas.

• approximate budget and timeline.

Our Email Design service is Ideal for International and Long Distance clients

(more than an hour from Cape Town).



2. Vision Board

Our design team can present you with a mood board/Vision Board of  ideas suited to your personality and home. This is a fun creative process, a play of colour, textures, flow and form. Functional aspects and feeling aspects are considered. Style Council understands the psychology of space and can design to your needs. Exterior design uses the same principals of  colour use, texture, depth, form and flow as interior design, but these elements grow with you through the seasons and the years.

This service is valued at an hourly rate of R450p/h.



3. Floor Plan Design

A further site visit is nesessary to obtain accurate measurements. You will need to provide us with a set of drawings, ideally from the architect that clearly illusrates the house and boundaries.

From these we are able to create masterplan dawings that will be used in the construction and implementation of your desired outdoor environment.

This service is quoted separately.



4. Perspective Sketch Design

The perspective design is extremely helpful in ensuring that the vision is carried through to all the team players. It projects the aesthetics and thereby the emotional outcome of the space.

This is a black and white sketch design. A colour version can be created upon request.

This is an investment in your space
