Garden consultations and design

At Sydney Wildflower Nursery, our qualified staff will work in consultation with you to design a garden that suits your needs and personal taste. Garden styles can range from tropical to rainforest, cottage, formal, bush-tucker and natural bush designs.

We make plant selections based on water requirements, maintenance and the environment of your garden.

There are two consultation packages to choose from.

1. Walk and talk

One of our qualified horticultural staff will come to your home for an on-site consultation. During the consultation you will be given ideas on what and where to plant in your garden, taking into consideration soil type, aspect and the style you are looking for.

Price: $175* per hour (minimum 1 hour)

*Travel surcharge may apply. See below.

2. Garden design

One of our qualified landscape designers will come to your home for an on-site consultation. Following the consultation you will receive a detailed plan of your garden with a pictorial plant schedule, landscape notes and recommended material list. This package also includes a soil analysis and a 30 minute in-store appointment to show you plants selected for your garden.

Price: from $895.00*
50% deposit to be paid on-site with balance payable on delivery of plans.

*Travel surcharge may apply. See below.

Things to note:

  • Cost will vary depending on the size of your garden. The price above is based on an average 600sqm block and excludes hardscaping. Extra hours are charged at $120.00 per hour.
  • Hardscaping (patio, pergola, deck, retaining walls etc) plans start at $1,200.00.
  • For gardens located more than 30 minutes but less than 1 hour from Heathcote a travel surcharge of $50.00 will apply. Travel times beyond 1 hour can be organised for an additional fee, depending on availability.

Our staff are often booked several weeks ahead so you may have to wait for a booking time. We try to fit everyone in as best as we can but it gets very busy during peak times such as spring and Christmas holidays. To ensure your garden is ready when you need it, please allow:

  • 2-4 weeks to secure a consultation date.
  • 4 weeks to complete a landscape design.
  • 2-3 weeks to order plants.
  • 6-8 weeks from the delivery of final plans to complete any hardscaping.

Consultations outside of business hours or on weekends will be considered on a case by case basis and may carry a surcharge. Please contact the nursery for assistance.
