My Services

Services range from an on-site consultation through to drawing a fully scaled plan and may also include project management through to completion.

Consultation

A consultation in your garden may include:

  • Advice, specific to your site
  • An A3 sketch of the design showing the placement of garden details such as retaining walls, paving, pergola etc, as well as plants recommended for the area.
  • Advice on suggested next steps, if relevant, such as construction work and planting.
  • Advice on recommended landscape contractors, pool builders as required. You may wish to do some or most of the work yourself.

A two hour on-site consultation costs $350. For extra time beyond the two hours, a charge of $90/hour applies (plus GST). Please note that as block sizes, topography and clients’ individual requirements vary considerably, some consultations may need to exceed 2 hours.

Below is a consultation checklist to help you prepare for my visit. This may be helpful for you to get your ideas sorted out before I arrive and it will aid me in carrying out the consultation.

Consultation Checklist

The following items will be helpful but are not essential:

  • Plan of the block or garden. If it already exists e.g. house plans, the survey.
    This will help with accuracy of my advice, drawing and recommendations.
  • A wish list of features and needs e.g. pool, barbeque area, washing line, vege garden, water tank etc.
  • Photos or magazine clippings you may have collected which show the effect you might like to achieve.
  • Plants that you particularly like and may like included.
  • Approximate budget your have for the project.
  • if you require more detailed services for the planning and construction of your garden, I will discuss these with you during the consultation and present you with a fee proposal for the extended design work.

Extended services may include:

  • More detailed site analysis
  • Accurate plan of the landscape design, to scale
  • Swimming pool design, features and other structural elements
  • Documentation e.g.for council or landscape contractor
  • Plans for Council DA
  • Project management throughout the construction
