Good design is at the heart of every landscaping proposal and brings the design brief to life.

Our guiding principle for design is to make the space ‘feel right’. That means, first and foremost, feel right to you, our client, and secondly, feel right to us, the team dedicated to getting it right.

What is involved in landscape design?
Landscape design includes, among other things:

· Initial consultation
· Preliminary design
· Full conceptual design / art / plant schedule
· Design detailing and construction plans


Initial consultation

During this initial stage, our team member/s will visit your site at an agreed date and time to view your existing garden or business premises. This consultation will provide an opportunity to extract information regarding specific garden preferences, taste, themes, styles and lifestyle requirements to determine the required design approach. Notes, measurements and sketches will be taken for reference during the design stage.

Following the initial site visit Garden Revolution can then offer various design options to support your project.  In addition it will often be useful for clients to fill out the following form depending on their requirements to assist with guiding the conceptual design process. The document can be saved and updated for later reference at subsequest meetings.     Customer Quesionnaire


Option 1:

You may have a clear vision already that utilizes the existing characteristics of your property, and the project may not require major changes. Some construction projects are straightforward and as such do not require full conceptual plans and extensive drawings. The quote will come back to you quickly and once project approval is received we can get our team underway saving you time and money.

Guided by your vision we will work with you on surface sizes, level changes and materials, using the team’s extensive design experience. The design is your design, your vision for how you want your exterior space to look once the job is complete.

Option 2:

The concept plan breathes life into the design brief. The preliminary concept plan usually starts with a basic sketched ‘mud map’ design of the area which includes some of the ideas and concepts noted at the initial meeting. This will also assist in making sure that the client is happy with the direction of the design elements before a final concept design is fleshed out. This is the time to make adjustments to the plan and take the elements that you like and integrate them into a Final Conceptual Plan.

The next step would be a full conceptual design. This will provide you with a full color conceptual presentation plan of the garden and proposed construction elements. Concept plans are extremely visual, and useful in allowing clients to get a taste for what their garden will feel like at the end of the construction process. It will also include materials and finishes palette, a proposed plant schedule, products and primary design elements.

A few choices may be presented to the client for items such as furnishings, paving colors and other color finishes etc.

Depending on the level of site complexity and construction elements, the conceptual design might provide enough information to proceed to the construction phase.

Option 3:

If your project has retaining walls, swimming pools or other complex structures, the conceptual designs may need to be further developed / drafted by a qualified engineer or architect for approval by local Council & for construction / certification purposes.

If required we can liase with an acknowledged professional landscape architect / engineer or certifier on your behalf. We are proud to have worked with designers such as Peter Glass and associates, and have taken great joy in creating his inspiring designs.

We also have access to a number of other very accomplished designers include Bec Kane (formerly employed by Garden Revolution as full-time designer), Michael Cooke and Paul Bangay.

Costs of services will vary on consultation however various options can be made available depending on client budget.
