We are one of Melbourne’s leading garden designers and work with you through the whole process to make your dream a reality. The design stage entails the elaboration and implementation of the on-site garden design concepts into a design layout plan that depicts the final garden. A plan view of the project is included, as well as perspective sketches of major aspects, material proposals such as paving or tiling elements, and plant material suggestions. Sample photos of the proposed works are included with each garden design, as well as an estimation of the cost to execute the design.
We view garden design as a process; the time is taken by client and contractor to consider and reach an agreement about the functional purposes and desired atmosphere for an outdoor space. We work hard to fully understand our client’s preferences and garden-style ideas. We take time to consider how our garden design ideas will match a client’s life stage and life interests. We consider the existing environment and architecture in our design suggestions.
At Desired Landscapes, our garden design consultations will take into account your ideas, as well as the environment, sun positioning, soil, and other factors. We’ll also give you advice on the ideal plant selection for the climate, hard landscaping features e.g paving, decking, gazebo’s, pergolas, etc. and soft landscaping elements (flowers, plants, garden art), leaving you with the perfect vision of what your new outdoor haven could look like. You’ll get a full report, including a timetable, a planting and schedule, and a photo portfolio after one of our garden design consultations. We’ll also provide a quote for putting it all together with our expert team.
