Design & Build

Here's how we work with you to create your dream:
Meet and plan
Meet your Landscape Consultant. They will assess your site, discuss your ideas and budget & take care of your project from start to finish.

Meet your Site Supervisor. The quote and timeline is confirmed and council compliance is taken care of.
Your landscaping team keeps to budget and timeline and your Landscape Consultant keeps you informed every step of the way.
Council sign off and your handover, complete with detailed plant and operational information.
Whether you have an established garden or have just completed your design & build, maintaining your asset is paramount to your ongoing pleasure. We make sure your garden stays healthy and beautiful as it grows, changes and matures.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do Humphreys do small scale design and maintenance jobs?
The short answer is yes. We have the ability and expertise to work with gardens that are smaller right through to the larger jobs. No job is too small for our teams.
My garden is small, do I need a design?
The benefits of having a garden design are endless. They allow you to visualise the end result and work with our landscape designer to create something you will love as well as ensuring an accurate quote and timeline.
It helps to have in place a framework whereby both you the client and your Humphreys professional are on the same page throughout the entire process. Less ‘interpretation’, more ‘understanding’.
The best option is to give us a call to discuss your needs and if required we can pop to site to check it out and make our best recommendations. We offer services from Design and Build right through to Maintenance.
What time of year is best to start my landscaping project?
Landscaping projects can be undertaken anytime throughout the year providing you have irrigation. We have relationships with quality suppliers who can provide plants throughout the year.
Do I need consent? Who deals with council permits?
We have landscape consultants who will process the required documentation and have a wealth of experience in dealing with the council for permits and consent.
What is the difference between soft and hard landscaping?
Hard landscaping often forms the framework for the softer, living elements of your garden. For example the hard landscaping could include retaining walls, raised garden beds, stone walls or anything made of a hard material in your landscape. The soft landscaping refers to the living aspects for example plants, lawn, mulch etc. These are both essential elements and require careful consideration.
