OTHER SERVICES - NON CUSTOM PLANS

Beautiful, elegant landscape design for homes in Melbourne and beyond

Inspiring Landscape Solutions specialises in landscape design that caters to all tastes and styles, from modern and contemporary to classic and traditional.

In 2019, we trialed a new service offering with our DIY clients in Melbourne, later expanding to Perth and South Australia.

This service, as detailed further below, recognises a gap in the DIY market in creating gardens that are beneficial to the home-owners enjoyment and well-being:

  • lack of creativity in how landscapes are designed by developers especially for small urban spaces
  • lack of recognition of the need to create spaces for busy professionals and families which cater towards building family memories together or creating a connection to nature
  • lack of recognition that busy professionals and families need access to outdoor spaces to inspire them to unwind or simply enjoy their outdoors for their well being
  • lack of knowledge transfer from landscape industry professionals to home owners in making the right choices in designing their garden spaces
  • lack of home owner maintenance knowledge which covers plant and materials.

This service is only available to DIY clients who meet the criteria listed further below and who want just more than a developers “tick the box for approval” garden.

DesignedBliss4U Plans

Garden coaching

What Our DIY Clients Say About Us

DesignedBliss4u garden themes:
  • Gardens to impress – entertainers dream!
  • Just4u – Emphasis on creating your own personal bliss
  • Scented – emphasis on flowering plants with perfume
  • Family bliss – creating a family sanctuary and a place for togetherness

  • Low maintenance*
  • Mixed planting (Australian natives & hardy exotics) ranging from shade plants, ground covers, climbers, small trees and shrubs for all garden themes except for productive gardens and scented gardens (ref above)

  • Hand-drawn plan – 2D

 

Notes & Disclaimers –
