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.

Small garden design and plant expert needed


Sydney, NSW

13th Jan 2022

We have a small Federation-style cottage, with several enclosed courtyard and patio areas. With mixed success I’ve been able to cultivate an eclectic garden over the past two years. There seems to be some hugely varied microclimates within the garden areas, meaning I’ve had limited success with things like espaliers (photos enclosed). Also, my “design” is a bit patchwork. I am keen for someone experienced to consult and recommend plants and potentially design improvements.

Very knowledgeable, thoughtful and respectful.

Garden design small internal courtyard

We have a small internal courtyard. I’m having mixed success trying to design and maintain. I’ve failed with Japanese maples (various); jasmine (various); citrus (various). Keen for something that works, has depth, and possibly scent (as it drifts into the house).

Hi, I am hoping to get some help fixing up the small garden at the front of my semi. It is a soil base but right now it is basically weeds. I would like it to look nicer and tidy with some plants, maybe some stones and a little bit of privacy along the front gate. Something simple that is pretty low maintenance. Not sure what to do with the ground, ie whether to put down grass, bark or some big pavers. I have a dog who digs so that has to be a factor. I have no tools and have not yet bought any materials as am hoping to receive some expert advice first. Very flexible on dates. Emma

Danny and colleague were fantastic. No fuss and my garden is lovely. Highly recommended.

I have a small courtyard (5x7m) and am looking for someone to design a child friendly space that my family can enjoy. It’s currently pretty bare and some of the plants have died as shown in the photos. The left hand side of the courtyard starts to receive sunlight from about 9am to 12pm in Autumn. I would like to plant insect repellent plants (mosquitoes and flies). I'll also like to plant edibles and a lemon tree if possible. The fern and bamboo needs to be replaced. They do not receive much sunlight so that needs to be taken into account. I'd like someone Sydney based so if I choose to proceed with the design, they can carry out the the work.
