Frequently Asked Questions

Why use a landscape designer?

Always ensure the company you engage with has qualified and experienced designers on board.

We promise prompt turn around of our landscape designs and offer a guaranteed completion rate agreed upon acceptance of our quotation. Normal practice is roughly five to 10 business days.
What does a landscape design process consist of and do I need to submit to council?

Every landscape design is different due to specific requirements and we can alter our process to better suit your needs so you’re not locked into an expensive and lengthy typical design process.

We also cater for special requirements like operational works from councils to body corporate and covenant specification requirements.

Don’t stress as we can cover all of these elements, in fact, we have completed more than 1500 plans to council.

What do I get at the end of a landscape design process?

We use the newest state of the art computer-aided design (CAD) software that offers creative, colourful and full-scale specifications.

These plans are very easy to read and can be used by professionals to build your garden or you can DIY. A landscape design is like a floor plan for an outdoor area. Like a floor plan, a landscape design creates a visual representation of a site using scaled dimensions.

Landscape plans include natural elements such as shrubs, trees, and grasses, as well as man-made elements including turf, and hard scaping.
