Where To Start?

Our process is pretty simple and by following these six steps we will be able to create and build a beautiful and tranquil space for you, whilst supporting and encouraging Mother Nature…

Step One –

“Getting To Know You”

This step is one of the most important. It’s easy to create a space that looks pretty, but for it to meet your needs, the environments and be all round functional, takes a little bit of background work…

To help with this we ask everyone who approaches us to take some time and sit down with our questionnaire…

In this questionnaire we cover some of the principle foundations needed to create a garden that is suited to you, your home and the surrounding environment…

Once you’ve completed this and returned it, we build a set of points in which to base your design around. We will also be able to make note of any other questions we may need to ask you to help us build the garden you want and need…

Your Questionnaire

Step Two –

“Initial Consultation”

Once we get your questionnaire back and have made note of any necessary points, we like to meet face to face so we can have a conversation, on site, about your goals and dreams for your new garden…

In the Initial Consultation we run through your responses and any further questions we may need to clarify with you, discussing ideas around these points and questions, seeing how best to involve them in your overall design…

In this time we also take a look at your property for any elements that need to be address before we begin, listening to any questions you may have about the whole process too…

We ask if a house and land plan or measurements for the area can be provided so we are able to develop the next step for you, but if this is too difficult we do offer a service for measuring up the area ourselves…

Step Three –

“Outline & Estimate”

After our visit we review the information gathered and sit down to compose an outline of what we’ve talked about, what you want to achieve and an estimate range for the supply and installation of your new garden, including a design proposal…

We then ask you to do the same in reviewing this information by sending the outline and costs involved back to you…

Once you’re happy with this we move onto creating your design…

Specific plant species come into the creation of your design, both indigenous and native, all of which would be suitable for the environment and climate zones around your home. Material options come into play during this time too, as we envision your new garden and begin to put it down onto paper. We see how well all of these elements will integrate with any surround structures, such as colours and aesthetics of your home, ensuring all will flow freely from one to the other.

Step Four –

“Design Creation”

This is where you begin to see your garden come to life on paper. Depending on your landscaping needs will depend on the level of detail in the design…

After we receive your deposit, we spend time thoughtfully selecting plant species and materials that will flow with one another and create a space that is right for you, whilst caring for the environment…

Once the design is completed, we come back to you and go through everything in person. This is where you have the chance to change anything before the final draft is complete…

After our visit we will revise any changes, if made, and send you the final copy for review. We ask you please give us the ok in writing (email is fine) that you are happy with the overall design, material selection and proposed plant list provided…

As we walk through the garden from paper to the physical, we will present images on all of the proposed plant species and materials for your new garden, in order. By walking with you, through the design like this, you will begin to achieve a sense of where elements will be placed and how they will look in your new garden space.

As with any of the stages this is also when you ask as many or as little questions as you need. Even after we’ve gone home if you think of anything please shoot us an email.

Once you are happy with all that has been presented to you we then move onto the quoting phase.

Step Five –

“Schedule & Quote”

Now we have a clear understanding of what you want and are happy with the materials and plants selected, we formulate your very own landscape schedule / project scope, so you are able to see every step taken in creating your garden…

Depending on the size of your garden project your schedule will also be broken down into stages to help with timelines and costs…

From the schedule we calculate your formal quote within the estimate range that was given to you earlier…

We are a bit different when it comes to others in the industry, we like to give you a final price and that is that, you will not be surprised by hidden costs. All tasks listed in the schedule are covered and included in the quote we provide to you…

This information will be sent back to you with your contract and our T&C’s for you to look over. Once you are happy with your schedule and quote, we ask if you could please sign your contract and send this back to us.

Step Six –

“Building Your Garden”

Firstly we set a date to start that works with you, because everyone’s lives are busy we want to work in with what suits you best…

Once paperwork is finalised, a date is set and deposits are received we run around in the background busily liaising with contractors and suppliers, putting your project together so it all arrives in time for us to hit the ground running.

We then use the design and schedule as our “To Do” list so the project runs to the best of our abilities, whilst all along performing each task with a professional and thoughtful approach to creating the space you most truly deserve…

Do You Want Your Very Own Sanctuary?

Yes! Let’s Go…

Alisha & Tarnia from AT Garden Spaces went above and beyond in giving us an amazing landscaped native garden that benefits both our property value and local fauna.

Our small suburban front yard was completely transformed from neglected grass and plants to new soil, a dry creek bed and a plethora of vibrant native plants that complement each other and attracts bees and bird life. What a difference it has made already!

Alisha & Tarnia were always professional, helpful and creative throughout the planning process, with the added bonus of imparting their sustainability knowledge with us. These women work twice as hard as any landscaping business we’ve ever encountered, and produce better results for less or the same cost for their clients. No generic designs, their vision is unique, excellent plant selections, and they are truly passionate about not only the work they do but how their work contributes to biodiversity.

We would highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them both in the future. We have been enjoying our front garden as much as the bees that are pollinating it. Thanks Alisha & Tarnia!

Thanks to Alisha & Tarnia we were delighted to see our garden area completely rejuvenated with native plants and well blended landscaping. On that basis and also with excellent back up service, we have no hesitation in recommending AT Garden Spaces.

Speaking to Alisha and Tarnia before appointing them for our outdoor works, we found them to be very professional and it was complemented with a warm and friendly approach.

Working with them was a very pleasant journey. They were very generous with their advice and guidance. Whatever works that were out of their expertise, they worked very hard to have them organized and done through their extensive network of contacts. Being on a tight budget, they also took great efforts in ensuring that costs were kept low but at the same time not compromising on the aesthetic aspects of the project.

At the end, we could not find any faults with their workmanship and we are certainly very pleased with their design and the finished result of the soft scapes.
