" We loved the proposed layout from the start...."

We got a Mini Garden Design from Kerry because we weren't sure where to start with incorporating gardens into our small bare backyard. We loved the proposed layout from the start and the plan we got fits so much variety into a small place. We can't wait to get started with turning it into reality. Kerry was very responsive, incredibly helpful and incorporated the various aspects we said we wanted while ensuring it would be low maintenance and dog friendly. I would definitely recommend using Kerry's services. " 



Are you taking on new design projects at the moment?

Yes, we still have the capacity and are excited to take on new design projects such as yours. 

Can I give you a design brief and feedback to get the design I want?

Yes, you certainly can!

We give you access to our online form where you can easily create and submit your design brief as part of the DIY pre-design process.

Because we want you to love your garden design, before we create it we also do a 30-minute pre-design consultation with you. This is held via (Zoom) screen-share. We'll discuss your design brief and share our initial ideas o get your feedback before we draw up your draft design.

As soon as your design draft is ready, you'll receive it via email for your considered review and feedback, before we go over it together during a 60-minute (Zoom) screen-share session.

We then revise and complete your design according to your feedback. 

How long does it take to get my landscape concept?

Lead times vary depending on how many other projects we have on the go when you engage us, and we'll never hurry you, however, you can assist in a speedy process with timely exchanges of information and feedback. 

Typically, once we have all your project info and we've had a pre-design chat there's a 7-10 day turn for you to get your draft design.

Once we have your feedback from that, your plan is typically revised and finalised within the week.

Overall this process can take between 4-6 weeks, so if you're in rush, it's best to get started as soon as you can. 

How is theĀ 'Mini Design' different to the 'Part Plan' Design'?

If the area you need a design for is one small area of garden, or there are several small areas immediately adjacent to each other that form part of the same scheme, and the overall area is under 50m2 then it's a 'Mini Design'.

If you have multiple areas that need a design, however they are in different parts of your property (even if they add up to under 50m2) you will need the 'Partial Site Design' service.  This is because the more spread out the areas are, the more complex the project becomes and with more individual factors and site conditions to be considered, it takes longer for us to create your landscape plan and planting scheme. 

How do I get started on my under 50m2 mini landscape concept?

It's just so easy! To get started just purchase this service and within 24 hours you will receive our Online Landscape Design Project Guide. It includes all the information you will need to work with us as we develop your garden concept.
