Our Approach

At Adam's Garden, we like to pair traditional materials and modern designs in our landscaping. We specialise in the use of a variety of materials, both recycled and new. Our philosophy toward landscape design is to keep it timeless; for it to only get better with age. To achieve this, we have perfected a balance between soft and hardscapes alike that accentuate the natural flow of a block of land and soften any rough edges while ultimately remaining practical and visually pleasing.

Labour Rates

We charge between $45-$85/hour per person based on their qualification and skill set. Our team consists of qualified landscapers, horticulturalists, carpenters, apprentices and labourers. Many of our team members have 10+ years experience in landscape design and construction.

Consultation

In a typical consultation, Adam will perform a site visit where he will then discuss plant selection & permaculture, offer structural advice, create a rough mud-map of the sites' natural flow, offer sound advice on drainage solutions and confirm that you are on the right track to creating your best garden. Consultation starts at $380 for the first hour followed by $180/hour thereafter. Let his 30+ years experience guide you and ease the process. A typical consult will run between 1 & 3 hours.

Relationships

We have great contacts in wholesale and long-standing relationships with local suppliers, meaning we can get the job done cost effectively and easily.

How We Charge

At the beginning of every project, we offer an initial site visit, wherein we come and talk about your vision, budget, inspiration and purpose. From there, we take your vision and provide a Job Proposal that outlines the projected cost estimate for the work discussed.

We prefer to work on a cost-plus basis with itemised weekly invoices detailing the work completed. This much better suits the nature of an evolving job and has proven to be the most effective charging method for landscape works as plans tend to change and evolve as our clients become more involved and begin to see the progress. However, if a fixed priced quote is desired we can provide this as an option. 

Hard

Scapes

Landscape construction comes with a level of responsibility. We take the construction of our hard-scapes extremely seriously, and always take the time to determine the right course of action when planning a build. We work alongside builders, engineers and other trades to ensure that the work is never compromising.

Soft

Scapes

Plants are Adam's second language, and there's not much you can 'stump' him on. Specialising in natives, he has a diverse knowledge of local Australian plants. But he doesn't stop there: if you are after something foreign, there's a good chance he knows what you're after.

Edible Gardens

We've been helping Central Coast families feed themselves for years now, and there's still nothing quite like eating a dinner grown in your very own garden. We offer everything from the production of the edible garden beds/boxes right through to seed planting and helping you plan your harvest calendar.
