The first consultation is generally on site unless you haven’t commenced construction yet. It will take between 60 and 90 minutes and we will be discussing ideas – yours and mine, what you like and dislike, and how you like to enjoy your outdoor space. Feel free to have a scrapbook of things you like or even an idea book on Houzz or Pinterest if you are Internet savvy. This is the first stage of a full design but even if you don’t proceed to the complete design service, clients tell me that this meeting is invaluable in terms of inspiration and direction.
A detailed design brief and an estimate of the design fee will be emailed to you afterwards.
Fee: $350 plus GST in the metro area.
Have your garden beds marked out and you just want to know what to plant? I can do this on the spot for a small garden or courtyard. I can give you advice on how to improve the soil and a list of suitable plants for the areas nominated. This consultation does not include a drawn plan but plants will be listed in report form for each area with both botanical and common names.
Fee: $350 plus GST for the first hour and $150 per hour after that.
