Landscape Design Philosophy

“… it’s about understatement rather than over-statement, serenity and paring back – about ‘less is more”.  It’s about shape, proportion, balance and colour, and sometimes about lack of colour.
Good garden design is sometimes about what’s not there”.

Working in the horticulture industry for over 35 years, I have been designing landscapes in Ballarat and around Victoria now for 25 years.  Specialising in residential – both new and existing, schools and public spaces with a passion for kitchen & community gardens. I can also assist with residential developments and Council planning submission.

toddesign provides a personalised  approach through a consultative process commencing with a landscape design consideration form and onsite consultation to understand and appreciate your landscape design requirements.   A schedule of fees with indicative costings for design work can be forwarded on request.

Horticultural consultancy is also available extending to planting selection, care & maintenance schedules.  Advice on outdoor furniture, pots  and hard surfaces is also on hand.  Quality, local landscaping tradespeople can also be organised to implement design work and regular maintenance.
