Plan to Plant Garden Design Services




On-site design service

This is a practical garden design service where plans and plant lists are delivered to you on the day, for an affordable price. I can advise on plant selection, site preparation and landscape design during the time in your garden. My service is very personalised to suit your lifestyle, your budget and the level of your gardening experience.

The garden plans are prepared to scale, hand drawn and detailed to a high standard. I have been drawing garden plans for many years now and have developed a system that will provide you with horticultural details and planting schedules with an easy to follow garden plan.

The format and delivery of the service is fine tuned to ensure that you have not only interpretive plans but also a series of information fact sheets on installation,site preparation, landscape details and garden maintenance advice.   

I can cover many different garden styles and themes and truly believe that gardens are for people, families and lifestyle. Your garden designs could be for small allotments, front yards, back yards, pool and patio planting's and outdoor garden rooms. Perhaps for permaculture and food gardens as well as a home orchard.

Many of these services range from 2 hours to 4 hours and are affordably priced from $450 to $650 depending on size and complexity. Overall I can tell what a job will entail and give a fixed price on the day just to ensure that we stick to your budget. If I need to travel further afield to visit clients, there will be additional costs to the service.

Permaculture Plans - this is for everyone!

Permaculture gardens are truly sustainable and productive. Many people both in the city and on rural allotments incorporate permaculture gardens into their landscape. In permaculture we grow food where it's to be eaten at home. Growing food organically is practical and can be done easily with a bit of knowledge and skill. This style of garden has many diverse functions, and is based on understanding of balanced relationships between humans, and the environment. Society also benefits from building strong communities that share in the permaculture philosophy as the sustainable choice of the future.

Permaculture planning and design requires the following optional extras in addition to the normal plans and plant list material found in your average gardener's portfolio. These are discussed below:

* Zonal and Sector plan for your site
* Water collection, storage, and distribution plan
* Firebreaks and designing for disaster, assessment and planning
* Detailed information regarding productive food gardens, with the inclusion of the BOGI (Brisbane Organic Growers Inc.) planting guide. This gives an extensive and detailed planting schedule for South East Queensland
* Orchard assessment and planning
* Food forest assessment and planning
* Fuel wood and other timber forest products assessment and planning
* Small livestock assessment and planning
* Fish for farm dams assessment and planning
* Sustainable Choice notes on organic weed, pathogen and pest control methods
* Bush regeneration and repatriation of degraded sites.
