What I Do
I provide a range of services, from residential and commercial landscape architecture services to landscape and gardening workshops for home owners or community groups. See the descriptions below of the types of services I offer, or just click on the headings to see some examples of my work.
WORKSHOPS FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS AND ORGANISATIONS: I can tailor a workshop to suit your group’s needs or aspirations. For example, I can design and run workshops for kids/students in gardening or design, like starting a garden project at the school you work at or teaching students about how a city or a town is designed and help them to understand the impact of building scale and form.
I can create workshops for your Youth Project to get your members to work together towards a common goal, to reduce conflict between each other, to undertake a project that will benefit the wider community, or even just to create a new after-school activity that simultaneously provides an exciting and healthy educational activity.
I can also help a community group (or even just an inspired individual) develop their ideas and bring them to fruition. These might include finding ways to start a community garden, how to green your street, or how to turn abandoned land or buildings into a productive space for the community.
My professional experience working with City Councils, developers, planning departments, educators, and community groups will ensure your project and idea proposals have the best chance for success.
WORKSHOPS FOR HOMEOWNERS: I run the Garden Design Workshop which is a hands-on and practical workshop for homeowners looking to design their own garden. This is held over two, two-hour sessions. After the two sessions, there is a 1.5 hour Individual Design Consultation with each participant. The workshop covers everything from site surveying and inspiring ideas, to plants, materials, and budgeting.
I also provide Tailored Design Consultations for homeowners that include content from the The Garden Design Workshop. These consultations include the booklet from the Workshop which has a vast range of information on how to design your own garden, complete with tips and ideas. In the tailored consultations, I will provide specific teachings on the garden design process that will help you implement your garden yourself or assist you with designing your next garden if you move houses, or if you think you’d like a go at designing someone else’s garden!
COMMUNITY PROJECT FACILITATION AND DESIGN: I can assist individuals, community groups, or community organisations in creating a landscape design or educational program tailor-made to their needs. If you want to upskill your group’s members in landscape design, horticulture, or gardening, I can work with you to develop your idea and can facilitate you in achieving your goal.
RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE: I provide a full range of consultation and design services for private garden design and can tailor the service to your needs or budget. I can provide consultations to help you get a clear idea of what you want to do in your garden and can draw up Concept Plans, Detailed Design Plan, Planting Plans, or even full Construction (Tender) Drawings if needed. I can assist you from the beginning of the design process all the way through to the completion of installation. If you want to ensure that your garden keeps looking great year after year, I can write/draw up a Management Plan for you to ensure your garden is well looked after.
COMMERCIAL LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE: I provide complete design packages from concept stage through to on-site oversite. I can design and detail projects of any size or type given my nearly 10 years experience in the industry. I have worked on an extensive range of project types including: large-scale residential housing masterplans, high profile civic spaces, roof gardens, school grounds and campuses, office and retail parks, street scapes, playgrounds, public spaces, and large public parks and sports facilities.
