Whatever help you need in creating a design for your dream garden, our talented DESIGN team can guide you through the garden design process. The value the team place on fostering enduring client and team relationships and their ongoing commitment to sustainable business and environmental practices reflect the company values that make Second Nature such a great company to work with. The Second Nature Design Process has been developed with this in mind.


Your design journey with commences with an on-site Consultation to explore the synergies between your desired outcomes, budget and our creative expertise and professional service. The consultation is an idea generator and helps to get your project started.


Your consultation fee includes a descriptive, written Feedback Report outlining the wonderful ideas generated by our designers and how these could fulfill your wish list of desired design features and the mitigation of any existing site issues.

A Design Fee Estimate is then provided, if additional design services are needed. This clearly outlines the estimated cost for design fees for your project, along with clarifying the scope of the design work should you decide to proceed.


Professionalism and integrity are a core part of the Second Nature Vision. Therefore your design journey can only begin once a contract has been agreed and signed, formalising our arrangement and ensuring that the framework for an enjoyable and mutually beneficial relationship is set.


Now for the exciting part – the fusion of your wishes, the site requirements and your garden designer’s expertise and creativity, visually communicated by a beautifully designed Garden Concept. Our designers begin by creating a conceptual draft for your review before, getting into the finer details. Through a series of reviews and revisions, we ensure the final design reflects your vision and aligns with the allocated budget for the creation of your garden.


You can then choose to implement your design with the Second Nature BUILD and GROW teams, or a company of your choice.

Many designs involve built elements which our expert BUILD team can implement. However, should our construction capacity be limited at the time you wish to build your garden then you have the option of finding your own, suitably skilled contractor to work under the guidance of our Design team.

Our GROW team includes experienced horticulturalists and gardeners who can deliver the soft landscaping aspects of your project, including the supply and installation of the plants your designer has specified in your plans and also provide ongoing Garden Maintenance if required.
