Domestic Landscape Design Services
The domestic landscape design we create for you includes all landscape design elements agreed to for your project.
Full landscape construction notes to build the landscape can be included such as; site preparation, demolition works, soil preparation and conditioning, landscaping surfaces and finishes – mulches, hard surface treatments like paving, concrete, bitumen, gravel, exposed aggregate and the like.
Built structures, steps, retaining walls, garden edging, pergolas, decks, fencing, letter boxes, barbecues, spas, pools, water features, garden ornaments and the like can be specified and documented for landscape construction purposes.
Plants are specified to the degree required including a plant legend which can show minimum plant or container sizes at time of planting and other information.
Planting instructions including ground preparation, staking, tying, watering and feeding can be included. Landscape concept plans can help clients (and tradespeople) visualize the design and also facilitate the passage through council.
Planting plans can be provided. They are great for garden make-overs.
Fairly Typical Residential Landscape Design
This garden design was created for a mature couple in Melbourne’s inner east. Planning ahead for decreased mobility they requested disabled access features that enabled full use of the garden which was also carefully integrated into the buildings and site.
The clients inputted into the planting quite heavily and of course as this was a new home our landscape design had to be passed by the local council for planning purposes which it was. The couple took a major role in the selection of plants.
Landscape elements like outdoor lighting, the selection of pavers, concrete surfaces, irrigation systems, water tanks, retaining wall systems or structures, plants, the location of simple things like clothes lines or sheds are all important.
Having been involved with landscaping and the industries revolving around it for many years we have knowledge of what will work and where the best materials including plants can be sourced. We know where the wholesalers are and can gain supplies at wholesale rates for your domestic landscape design project.
Some of our clients have saved the cost of the garden design as a result of the savings in material costs.
