Garden designer for courtyards


Jeremy was absolutely amazing, couldn’t recommend him more. He was really easy to work with when deciding on the layout and type of plants. The deck he built is incredible and he also made plantar boxes and did some paving which looks great.

What do garden design services include?

Garden design services include a wide range of tasks to make your dream garden come to life. When you book your garden design through Airtasker, you can save time, minimise stress, and achieve the output you're looking for. Whether you just moved into a new home and want to develop your garden or you want to spruce up your outdoor space, our design experts can help you out. Here's what to expect when you hire garden designers through Airtasker:

Initial consultation and site survey

Your garden design project starts with a consultation with your garden designer so they can find out your needs and talk about what you want to achieve with your dream garden. Are you looking for wildlife garden designers who can help you create an outdoor space where birds, butterflies, and bees can thrive? Or maybe you're aiming for a modern garden design to suit your new home?

Since every garden and home is unique, your garden designer will survey your space to spot possible opportunities that can be maximised or analyse potential challenges that can arise throughout the project.

Planning and designing

After the consultation, your garden designer will then use all the information provided to create a detailed master plan for your garden. You can visualise where to place specific landscape surfaces such as paths, lawns, and patios, as well as suggested materials, colour schemes, water features, and lighting systems.

The plan also comprises a plant and flower bed design where your trees, topiary, and other greenery are located, depending on your personal preferences and which species best fit with the conditions in your garden. Other aspects such as construction details are also included complete with exact measurements and specifications so your contractor can build your garden exactly as you envisioned.

Project monitoring

Once your garden build begins, your garden designer will be on-site to oversee the project. Together with your landscape designer, the entire build process is regularly monitored to ensure that all hardscapes and external features are implemented following the design plan and with high standards. In case something unexpected arises during the garden build, your garden designer is at hand to answer any questions and offer quick and effective solutions. 

If you want to prolong the look and quality of your newly built garden, you may also ask your garden designer for a garden maintenance plan. You can use this yourself or freely pass it on to your gardener for their reference.

Inner city garden design and cleanup help


Carlton VIC, Australia

1st Apr 2024

We need help cleaning up our small front courtyard garden in Carlton. The garden is a small section of the front courtyard (see pic). The issue: We don't really like having this garden bed as it takes up too much usable courtyard space. So we'd like to make a plan to put deck/stones or something over the parts that have no trees to make space to have the kids use the courtyard. However we want to keep the trees and some small garden space. Can you help us figure out how what do to with the space? - We want less garden bed (but keep some) - We want succulents or something extremely low maintenance in the garden - We need help making a plan and then help with someone executing it - We have a bougainvillea that we want to train down our side wall and we need help with that too We also have a massive laneway that we want advice on - would do this as a separate project (optional). *Please quote for an initial consultation/planning (then we can do the actual gardening execution as a separate payment)
