LANDSCAPE DESIGN

WHAT DO LANDSCAPE DESIGNERS DO?

Your artistic landscape professional.

What to expect from a landscape designer.

Landscape designers are your true creatives. They might not be as qualified as architects, but they have a passion for all things green thumb related. Landscape designers aim to create beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. 

Does this mean that they have no formal qualifications? Not at all. Landscape designers should have a Diploma or similar qualification form TAFE or a registered training  organisation.

A lot of their knowledge comes from practical, hands on experience and because of this they often offer design and construction services.

They generally have an excellent knowledge of plant species. They’re visionaries. What do we mean by that? They can look at your space now and envision what it’ll look like in the future with a great degree of accuracy. 

If you have a smaller project that is relatively uncomplicated, a landscape designer might be perfect for your needs.

We can handle your landscape design needs and Urban and Rural as well. Get in touch for an obligation free consultation today.
