Evolve Gardens provide various design and construction solutions to suit your garden needs.

Initial Consultation

Our packages start with an on-site meeting with you and an Evolve Gardens designer. During this meeting we get an idea of your garden needs, ideas and budget and discuss potential design solutions, plants, material selections, product choices and timelines.

This consultation takes approx. 1 hour and we encourage all parties who will have a say in the future of the garden be available.

A fee proposal for the design process is presented at the end of the consultation.

Fee: $199.00 inc. GST to be paid at the consultation


Concept Plan

A concept plan is the initial design stage that firms up the design vision, concept ideas and direction of your new garden. This stage includes:

  • A site analysis
  • A scaled landscape plan and necessary elevations
  • A plant schedule
  • A colours and finishes schedule
  • A design presentation meeting

Construction Drawings

The construction documentation stage ensures your design is built with integrity and to the highest standard. You will require these documents should you need council approval or to tender the construction stage out to landscape construction companies.

We can provide various drawing and documentation to suit your project. Including:

  • A complete working drawing sets for tender
  • Architectural Section (detail)
  • Shadow diagrams
  • Erosion and sediment control plans
  • Recycling and waste management plan
  • Statement of Environmental Effects
  • Heritage Impact Statement
  • Cost summary report (for Council)


Custom designed styling packages are for exterior spaces that require an update, rejuvenation or to make it more usable and inviting. These packages include sample boards of pots, planters, vertical systems and planting choices along with soft furnishings, lifestyle products and outdoor furniture specific to your environment. This package is perfect for balconies and small spaces but can also be ideal for any area that requires an update or will host a special occasion.

A quote is presented for the supply and installation of these products.


Garden Restoration 

If you are happy with the existing design and foundations of your garden but need an update you can choose a restoration schedule. This is a list of recommendations to restore the existing hard and soft landscaping features and suggested new plants and garden elements that will suit the existing environment.  

Evolve Gardens team of qualified designers and horticulturalists are always looking for what’s already in play in the garden, replenishing the soils, giving it shape and form, some negative space, and a clear direction so that you can make the most of your outdoor space.

Construction and Installation

On completion of the design and agreement of the budget, construction or installation works begin.

Evolve Garden's holds a landscape construction licence and can construct and work with sub-contractors. 

We love seeing our designs realised and work with other landscape professionals who are excellent problem solvers and have a passion for over achieving, attention to detail and customer satisfaction. 


No matter how low maintenance a garden is it needs a bit of tender, loving care. We offer various options to ensure that your garden evolves beautifully over time.

I now love coming home everyday. Our new garden has completely changed our family's lives!” N.G. Newtown
