Step 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 the best way forward. Our wealth of experience will help you define a realistic framework within site conditions and budget considerations.

Before consulting with us, it is advised you collect photographs to share your vision.

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

 A site visit of R650 includes up to an hour of consultation and travel, (within the Cape Town area). If further travel is required then R550 p/h for transport is charged (within the Western Cape).

The consultation includes :

  • Identifying feature areas, key needs and discussing ultimate goals.
  • Photographs and a brief survey of the area,
  • Discussing the costs involved and what you can achieve.with your budget

Long-distance and international clients can make use of email or WhatsApp communication for our Design and Consultation services.

Step 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 R650p/h.

Step 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.

Step 4

Perspective 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 a R700 investment
