Landscape Design

Elegant Landscaping and Design offers the full conceptual design service for small and large residential gardens and for rural properties.

An important aspect of landscape design is to choose plants and structural forms which maximise the available space. Our designs aim to incorporate natural light and optimal plants and materials for a landscape that complements your house and surrounds. We specialize in garden designs by providing horticultural experience and ability to build inspirational spaces into your property.

Some of our design influences include:

  • French provincial gardens,
  • Contemporary native landscapes,
  • Classic English courtyards and flora,
  • Sandstone and water features,
  • Intimate courtyards and outdoor living areas,
  • Sustainable living, fruit and vegetables.

We are always looking to research new themes and apply designs which meet your personal inspirations.

Design Process

Through our proven consultation and design process, we work closely with you to define the needs of your landscape. Our design process is described below.

Step 1: Initial Consultation

Initial consultation to define the scope of the project and to discuss design ideas. After this initial meeting, a landscape design proposal, including design costs, will be provided to you.

Step 2:Detailed Design Meeting

Detailed meeting to confirm landscape ideas/themes. Taking into account the ideas discussed in the first meeting, our landscape designer may provide examples and reference material for your review and consideration. Analysis of the existing site and discussion of the landscape budget will also be completed. The site will also be measured so that concept plans to scale can be produced. Allow 1-2 hours for this meeting.

Step 3: Provide concept sketches for consideration.

Second meeting to review the designs and discuss and select final concept. Elegant Landscaping will make any adjustments to the final concept to suit your vision of the landscape. Allow 1 hour for this meeting.

Step 4:Provide final landscape concept plans.

Present scaled concept plans showing construction forms, plant varieties (botanical and common names), positioning, spacing and quantities.
