Landscape Design

Do I need a landscape design?

If you find yourself flipping through magazines and you know you want something special but you just don’t know what, then you probably need a landscape designer. A landscape designer can help you generate ideas and knows what is on trend. They can help you decide what is achievable within your budget and functionality requirements.

Blair, our landscape designer has loads of ideas. This is due in part to his in depth experience in landscaping for high profile companies domestically and abroad and his experience running Blair Edwards Landscaping Pty Ltd.  He comes armed with a host of concepts and is able to spin one idea into a new and improved idea using past experience and industry expertise.

The design process

Designing your garden is an exciting project for us.  You will work closely with Blair throughout the entire landscape design and construction process.  We will gain an understanding of your needs and ideas and we value client input.  When partnering our expertise with your expectations we will work to create a garden which perfectly suits both your home and your lifestyle.

There are 3 phases in the Landscape Design Process:

– Initial Consultation
– Landscape Concept Plan
– Final Plan and Quotation

What is the difference between a landscape designer and landscape architect?

A “landscape designer” (that’s what we are) is not a regulated or licensed title, so that could mean anything. Some landscape designers are self-taught, but most have extensive experience in the landscaping industry. In other words, you can’t suddenly wake up one day and just decide to call yourself a landscape designer. Landscape designers usually work on smaller residential projects.

A “landscape architect” must have a bachelor’s and/or master’s  degree in landscape architecture and must be licensed by the state they work in. Their work can range from small residential projects to large scale parks and gardens.

How much does a design cost?

Our landscape designs cost $699 + GST.  This includes a landscaping plan, amendments and quotation.
