Botanical Traditions - Landscape Architecture Concept Plans

What is a Landscape Architecture Concept Plan?

The Concept Plan is the first main step in the landscape design process. There are no hard and fast rules as to what must be included in a Concept Plan. Typically we show the main features of the landscape design - for instance the different garden areas and their relationships to neighbouring areas, main features and main trees. Depending on the type and scale of the project the Concept Plans may include photographs, sketches and 3D models.

In smaller projects a concept plan may give the client enough information to continue with their garden, especially if the client is doing the construction themself.

The level of detail in a Concept Plan will vary depending on the project, budget and landscape designer. A few Concept Plans are included below:
