Everyones’ requirements are different so the best way to begin is to call me.

To give you a bit of an idea though, an average garden can be designed around a one and half hour’s consultation.

In this I discuss what you are looking for, ask you lots of questions and get to it.


I draw a plan on the spot with the shapes, the plants, lighting ..whatever is needed, then give you an action plan of how the concept can be achieved. This action plan is crucial as it maps everything in a logical order so you don’t waste time, money or effort.

The cost for this is $595 plus GST.

If you need a council or a more detailed plan for hardscaping or engineering purposes, I still start with the initial consultation so that we know we are on the same page and you are happy working with me. Then I would give a fee structure for this design work.


From the design stage there are many routes to take. I can project manage the whole installation of the garden from construction, lighting irrigation, planting and so on, using the best teams and tradesmen available to suit the design works.

Or I can mentor you as you do the work yourselves.

For over 35 years I have been doing this, so I am very mindful of people’s budgets and aim to make everyone happy from every angle.
