Full Range of Landscape Services

At Platylobium, we offer landscape services and landscape design from a basic concept plan to a full, detailed landscape design or master plan for small or large properties. We can help –

Ask us anything during your customised one hour consultation. This service is perfect if you need some advice about choosing plants or where to put them or you’d love to bounce ideas around with a landscape designer. At the end of your consultation, you’ll have the advice, plan and confidence to get started. If you choose to engage us for a full landscape design service, we’ll simply subtract the cost of this consultation from your fee proposal.

Concept plans can provide you with guidance for implementing your landscape ideas. These plans give an overall perspective of the landscaping design, including hard landscaping components and a recommended planting schedule. You’ll get a sense of major layout ideas as well as plant type suggestions.

We create small and large-scale landscape master plans, from residential through to those for industrial estates and property management planning. A master landscape plan takes a holistic approach to your outdoor space for future planning, including seasonal changes. The master plan defines a long-term vision for the landscape, determines a budget and communicates the design phases that will bring it to life.

Does your landscaping need to comply with certain bushfire regulations? We design landscapes specifically for bushfire resilience and can help you develop your bushfire management plan. Our experience working with rural and bushland properties and in fire-prone areas means we can deliver you thoughtfully designed, regulation-friendly landscaping solutions.

Do you need to submit a landscape plan for your new house, extension, development, unit complex or subdivision? We offer help with planning permits, applications and submissions. We’ll prepare the planning application for your landscape works, including vegetation removal, as well as the landscape plan that supports it. We have a thorough understanding of the planning process, with extensive experience in preparing successful planning applications for properties throughout Melbourne and greater Victoria.

Planting plans are often necessary for planning permits. We also do plant layouts on the ground. A planting plan will map out what plants go where, to create a landscape that optimises your space. This plan will consider aspect, soil conditions and goals for your landscape. It will show the location, sizes and species of all new and existing plants, along with a plant schedule for your easy reference.

Do you need help identifying the key maintenance requirements in your new or established garden? Landscape maintenance plans help communicate the design intent of the project and provide guidance for ongoing maintenance for a flourishing landscape.

If you’re preparing for a VCAT appearance, we can help. Perhaps your project has received objections or a Council refusal. We’ll organise any documentation you need, such as landscape plans or landscape expert evidence statements. We can also appear as an expert witness for VCAT hearings to help you work towards achieving your ideal outcome.

Let us take care of the project management for you. We’ll seamlessly run your project from inception to completion. Many years of experience managing large-scale projects, such as mine rehabilitation, development approvals, environmental assessments and developments means we have our processes down pat. We can also help with small and large residential, commercial, council, industrial and environmental property management.
