“STARTING A GARDEN IN ADELAIDE – a guide for beginners” – free PDF ebook download available now
PLEASE NOTE: While the COVID-19 pandemic situation is rapidly evolving, I will be focused on family and community care and not taking design bookings. Please follow the blog page on this site and Nadja’s Garden on facebook for resources that may be useful to home gardeners at this time.
Book a home consultation, and add a basic concept design and/or detailed design service depending upon your needs. Follow-up visits are also available for coaching (e.g. fruit tree pruning) or to review your garden’s development and offer further suggestions.
Step 2: Complete a short questionnaire to outline your vision for your garden and the features and plants you would ideally like to include.
Step 3: Consultation – allow at least two hours to explore your patch and its potential. Walk through the garden together, view examples of previous designs and DIY package. Nadja will measure for design if required.
Fee: $60/hr. ($30/hr travel fee may apply depending on location.) Cash, credit card and electronic transfer payments accepted on day of visit.
Step 4: Select any further services you need, e.g. concept design or detailed design & DIY information package. Measure & quote available at consultation.
Step 5: Concept Design – Annotated, hand-drawn black & white concept plan at 1:100 scale, emailed or posted to you after a consultation on site.
Fee: From $250* for small to medium suburban gardens (includes $50 deposit).
Step 6: Review – discuss your feedback & questions on the concept plan – by phone and/or email.
Step 7: Detailed Design Package – (available after concept plan & review).
