What does a landscape consultation include?

After evaluating your garden footprint, family’s needs, surroundings, and so much more, you’ll receive:


  • Plant selection and plant palette suggestions  

  • Material suggestions

  • Garden lighting suggestions

  • Irrigation and drainage recommendations (if required)

  • Advice on common but expensive mistakes

  • Cost estimates

  • Permit information

  • Timeline estimates based on the works you need to have done

You’ll receive tailored advice and recommendations to build intentional, cohesive, and long-lasting outdoor zones that will draw you outside to connect and reset.

Your Garden, My Garden: Our landscaping consultation process



First, I’ll visit you to evaluate not only the footprint of your garden but your surroundings, your specific microclimate, soil conditions, and so much more.


You’re then invited to view my home family garden in Mt Martha so you can experience for yourself the various garden elements you could use in your forward-thinking landscape design.


You can see how adding contour, texture, colour, and various fragrances through the garden can transform the garden experience.
