Garden Design Consultations

The first step to creating any garden is a landscape consultation with the team at Ian Barker Gardens.

At Ian Barker Gardens we offer a complete landscape consultation in whatever form works best for you. Ideally we love to meet face to face, on-site to really get a first hand feel for the landscape, however when that doesn’t suit, we’re just as happy (and it works just as well) to offer this same service via any form of technology.  Technology today makes it just as easy to design a garden on the other side of the world as it does designing the garden next door. The likes of Skype and Zoom (with Zoom being our preference) allow us to design anywhere at anytime. Having designed gardens at the very tip of Australia in Mackay, America, United Kingdom and Vanuatu (one of Ian’s favourites!), there are no design boundaries or obstacles we can’t overcome.

Irrespective of whether you choose an on-site or on-line consultation, the design process remains the same. The first step to creating any garden begins with an initial discussion to get a better understanding of what it is you’re looking for and how the garden will be used and who by – all the while gaining a clearer picture of your individual style and taste.

On-site Design Consultations last for approximately 1-1.5 hours and cost $400 inclusive of GST.

On-line Design Consultations last for approximately 1 hr and cost $250 inclusive of GST.

Keen to find out how it works in more detail? Please feel free to call us on (03) 9836 3130 and we’ll happily walk you through just how easy the process is.

Alternatively, you can find out more in the Q&A section of our “Services” page.

For those interested in the on-line option, please note we work with many types of digital audio systems, just let us know what suits you best!
