Overview

Secret Gardens offer a variety of landscape design services. We can be involved in individual elements of your project or as most clients prefer, manage the entire process from garden design through to maintenance of your completed garden.

Consultation

Secret Gardens offer a range of consultation services depending on the scale of your project. The design of your garden begins with Secret Gardens understanding your ideas, how you want to use your outdoor space and reviewing the garden area to be landscaped. Consultation fees vary depending on your location and these will be confirmed when you contact us.

Design consultation

The on site design consultation is a verbal exchange and takes between 60 to 90 minutes. Design options and products will be discussed, along with the opportunity to view other projects in Secret Gardens portfolio for inspiration. This service is also available to interstate and international clients.

Following the consultation a Design Proposal is forwarded which outlines the fee to develop a Concept Plan.

Horticultural consultation

Secret Gardens also offer a Horticultural consultation for clients interested in planting renovations rather than structural changes.

The health and suitability of the existing plants will be reviewed and suggestions for new plants will be discussed.

If the scope of works is simple and plant choices can be resolved during the consultation then the consultant will proceed straight to a quote. An indicative plant palette and quote will be provided within 10 working days of the consult as part of the consultation fee.

If however further work is required such as sourcing plants, pots etc or the area requires a design, such as a planting plan then the consultant will advise you during the consult and a fee proposal will be provided for our landscape design services.

Garden design

The process works in four stages

  1. CONCEPT PLAN
    An overall plan of the garden, images of the key landscape design elements, samples of materials and recommended plant species provide clients with a visual image of the new garden.
  2. DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION
    If council approval is required an application is prepared once the Concept Plan is completed.
  3. CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTATION
    When the Concept Plan is complete a Construction budget is provided. Detailed plans are then developed for the structural elements (planting, lighting, etc.).
  4. CONSTRUCTION QUOTATION
    When drawings are complete a final Construction Quote is prepared for the installation of the new garden.
