We can discuss ideas for your garden and offer suggestions or take a brief to prepare a layout for your garden. We have extensive experience designing gardens that work, your design will fit your requirements, whether it be child friendly, dog friendly, a home vegetable garden or just somewhere to enjoy being outside, or, a front garden to wow the street.  Book us for an hour and pick our brains!

Garden Plan

The garden plan will show all areas of the garden including practical elements, hard surfaces, soft landscaping with an indication of type of plants, like vergreen or deciduous trees, shrub beds, perennial beds etc.  In other words it’s the layout of the garden and how it all fits together.  From here we get in to more detail.

Planting Schedule

A detailed plan showing individual plant species, actual placement and mature size of plants. We have lived and worked through 10 years of drought. Our gardens always feature sustainable planting.

Working Drawings

Detailed information on which quotations can be based. You can do it yourself, brief you own contractors, or you can employ Small Spaces to organise it for you.

Site Supervision

Small Spaces can oversee the entire process for you using our own trusted contractors.  We have been in business for 21 years, over  that time we have built strong relationships with good quality trades people.


The level of maintenance required to ensure your garden reaches its full potential, is taken into consideration from the start of the design process.

You may choose to look after your garden yourself, however, if your time and/or knowledge is limited, then we can take care of it for you. This may require just a seasonal visit by us, or perhaps a more regular maintenance cycle.

Town Planning applications

Small Spaces can provide landscape plans with a strong focus on indigenous and dry tolerant species for your project.
