Services

LANDSCAPE DESIGN
GBD provides a landscape design consultation service where we discuss your vision for the garden and we give some of our ideas and advice on what would be possible to achieve. It is this initial consultation which is the most important for the whole project as it will determine the lay of the land and what steps are next. We are able to prepare planting plans, concept plans, landscape plans and specifications for development applications for local government.
Design styles all vary depending on the architectural style of the buildings and the client’s needs. We aim to create gardens that please all the senses – they have to look fantastic, have an inviting feel, they can be edible and be fragrant. If they are filled with the sounds of birds and people using them and enjoying them then we have succeeded. For all our completed gardens we provide an ongoing horticultural advice and planting service.

HORTICULTURAL ADVICE
GBD provides garden consultations to assess your existing garden, answer your garden queries, make suggestions for suitable planting, and provide a garden management plan for you. We have access to the best nurseries in Australia, so we can source those plants needed in your garden.

ARBORICULTURAL CONSULTING
GBD provides arboriculture consultations for residential, commercial and council tree work. We are able to prepare all arboriculture documentation needed for your development applications for local government. Our services include but are not limited to tree reports, tree protection plans, pre development tree assessment reports, tree management plans and tree surveys. Our experience in the Landscape Design Industry allows us to understand design concepts and construction methods and the way these can affect trees with a high significance value.
