Plant Consultation

Are you renovating a tired and old garden which has existing garden bed dimensions and just need advice on how to improve existing soil and what plants to plant in various locations.

What plants are going to thrive not just survive in your garden? What plants are best to perform the function they are required for. What is the best screening evergreen hedge for your garden? What deciduous trees allowing northern light in winter and providing shade in summer tick all your boxes and can handle the brutal Perth sun?  Which shrubs provide a flower in winter or autumn for all year round interest? What plants require little or no maintenance, and what indigenous plants can not only tolerate but flourish with bore water. With over 15 years experience installing, selecting and managing projects throughout Perth, Nigel and his team can select plants that will succeed in the hills or on the coast. Just depends on the soil and the microclimate.

Hunter Landscape Design can provide a soil pH test with results and provide a list of suitable plants for various areas in your garden and advice on how to improve your soil.

Fee: $295 + GST

For an additional cost Hunter Landscape Design can source strong and vibrant plant stock. See Plant source and supply

Elevate Your Garden with Expert Plant Consultation by Hunter Landscape Design

When it comes to rejuvenating your garden, the process can often feel overwhelming. You might have an existing garden with dimensions and features you’d like to preserve, but you’re uncertain about how to enhance the soil and which plants will thrive in different areas. That’s where Hunter Landscape Design steps in to offer you expert Plant Consultation services. We are your partners in turning your garden into a flourishing oasis that you can cherish for years to come.

Why Plant Consultation Matters

Gardening isn’t just about planting a few flowers and hoping for the best. It’s a science, an art, and a heartfelt passion. The key to a breathtaking garden lies not only in its aesthetics but in the careful selection of plants that will thrive, not just survive, in your unique garden environment. Your garden should be a reflection of your personality and a sanctuary where you can relax and unwind.

At HLD, we understand that every garden is distinct, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Whether you have a vision in mind or are unsure about where to start, our Plant Consultation service provides you with the expertise you need to make your garden dream garden.

Unearthing the Secrets of Soil

One of the critical factors in a thriving garden is the soil. It’s the foundation upon which your plants grow and flourish. However, not all soils are created equal, and understanding the specific needs of your garden’s soil is essential for success. We begin our Plant Consultation by conducting a soil pH test, providing you with valuable insights into the current state of your soil.

We will not only analyse the pH levels but also assess other essential factors like soil composition, drainage, and nutrient content. Armed with this knowledge, we can offer precise advice on how to improve your soil. Our goal is to optimise the soil conditions to ensure your garden becomes a nurturing environment for your plants.

Plant Selection Tailored to Your Garden

Selecting the right plants is a pivotal aspect of a successful garden. It’s not just about what looks good but also about choosing plants that serve the intended purpose in your garden. We can identify the ideal plants for various areas in your garden. We consider factors like sunlight, climate, and the overall aesthetic you desire.

  • Evergreen Hedges for Ultimate Screening: If you’re looking for privacy and security, we can recommend the best evergreen hedges that will create a natural barrier, ensuring your space remains secluded and beautiful year-round.
  • Deciduous Trees for Seasonal Balance: When you desire a balance between sunlight and shade, we will suggest deciduous trees that let the warming northern light in during winter and provide much-needed shade in the scorching summer months.
  • Year-Round Blooms with Winter Flowers: For those who want their garden to be a sight to behold throughout the year, we can guide you in selecting shrubs that will bloom even in the winter, ensuring your garden has a captivating charm, regardless of the season.
