Sydney garden consultation - What's included?


You may have some existing ideas after researching magazines or online gardens.
We encourage your ideas and combine them with our own professional ideas to create a broad design concept that is coherent and suits your taste, lifestyle and your site.


We will help develop your brief combining professional design, lifestyle aspirations and budget considerations.

This coherent brief will enable you to move forward as the foundation of your project.


We will provide you with rough costings while discussing ideas. This helps develop your budget estimate and learn which ideas to include in your project. 

This forms the basis of our fee proposal and design advice.


We discuss a style for your garden and general plant suitability based upon your site, orientation and climate. Our suggestions vary depending the type of garden eg rooftop garden vs leafy backgarden. 

As qualified horticulturalists, this on-site advice is valuable to make sure your plants will thrive.


The consultation doesn’t include a scaled design plan or layout plan.

These can be arranged as an add-on for small balcony gardens OR  included in our full landscape design service.
