Garden Design

Libertas Gardens offers complete Garden Consultations and a few options of Landscape Design Services.
With this scalable design strategy, we cater for all budgets, and for a large client base; private, corporate and community groups.
Our garden designs feature:
  • Clever use of edible and ornamental plants;
  • Urban permaculture inspired zoning systems;
  • Energy and water saving techniques;
  • Low maintenance strategies;
  • Renewable and ethically sourced materials; and
  • Construction techniques that minimise the embodied energy and pollutants in the built landscape.

 

We offer a wide range of design techniques and depth of rendering to match your needs and budget, and we have packaged them as follows:
  • Concept package: $990
    You will get all the services that come with a Consultation package, along with these added services: after receiving your consultation report, a second meeting (usually by phone or Skype) will be arranged. After fine-tuning of the ideas and elements to be included, a concept plan will be produced.
    This plan will feature all landscape elements in position, a suggested plant list for each area, technical aspects for the construction and a clear costing for the construction of the proposed garden.
    The plan will be produced either by hand or software, depending on the site. It will be roughly to scale, but the site will not be surveyed. The final plan will be sent in PDF by email.Perfect for those aiming to project manage the construction and landscaping work themselves, or cases where the design of the garden might need later amendments, for example, in the case of a renovation.
    Approximately 12 hours of consultation, design & contact time.
  • In depth Package: $1850
    With the In-depth package, you will get all the services that come with the Concept package, with the following added services: after receiving the Concept plan, a third meeting will be organised (in person). Once the final changes are made, an in-depth plan will be created using computer assisted design. It will include detailed drawings done to scale, with full technical specifications, including all the elements of the landscape, paying special attention to drainage, irrigation and a precise planting schedule and maintenance regime. Some elements requiring a builder, such as extensions, decks and pergolas will be included, but for consideration only.
    The final plan will be sent by email as a series of images from key perspectives, as well as in digital format, for use by architects, or on a computer screen or virtual reality headset. A printed artwork of the garden will also be sent by mail or delivered in person.This package is ideal for those with a blank slate or a garden needing a full makeover, who will hire a contractor to carry out the works. Plans will be detailed, with all elements pre-designed to avoid any surprises.
    Approximately 24 hours of consultation, design & contact time.
  • Further design work is billed at $90 per hour.
