John French Landscape Design, Melbourne
Melbourne, routinely awarded the title of the world’s most livable city, is famed for its temperate year-long climate – a fact not lost by its four million residents. Unlike most major cities in Australia, or the world for that matter, landscape architecture and design performs a crucial role in the thriving social scenes here. But more than that, aesthetically beautiful and pragmatic landscape design also enhances the value of homes and commercial properties.
Naturally, the selection of the perfect landscape designers is of vital importance to homeowners. This is why John French Landscape Design is one of the most sought after services in the area. Helmed by award-winning 32-year industry veteran John French, the company develops functional modern landscape designs that are at once picturesque, practical and cost effective. Homeowners can look forward to years of comfort and pleasure within the confines of their sanctuary.
John, whose earliest artistic influences was shaped by Ellis Stones (1895-1975), the pioneer of the Australian landscaping industry, is noted for his diverse, inventive and functional style that incorporates elements from the native flora and environmental sustainability. His company provides a full suite of landscaping services which include, but are not limited to:
♦ Design Consultancy
Onsite consultation and interview to develop the client’s vision, establish the budget and formulate the initial design and construction schedule. The onsite visit will also provide the opportunity to evaluate potential terrain, structural and climate issues. With these information in hand, the company will be able to construct a draft conceptual landscape design.
♦ Landscape Construction and Consultancy
John’s long presence in the industry has allowed him to develop successful partnerships with reputable organisations in parallel industries, such as construction and architecture. This ensures that he is able to recommend the most qualified contractors to clients to support his landscaping ideas and visions.
♦ Construction Administration
Managing a construction schedule and crew, along with fulfilling regulatory and legal requirements, is a time-consuming task that is best left in the hands of trusted and experienced professionals – something that the company has an abundance of.
♦ Residential Landscape Architecture
Our design team specializes in custom residential landscape architecture that focuses on building on the client’s original vision, while incorporating proven stylistic and functional elements that will elevate the design.
♦ Commercial Landscape Architecture
Commercial, urban, residential and public domain developments require landscape designers that can communicate a winning vision of the project to regulatory bodies, civic groups and concerned citizens. For existing structures, an artfully designed landscape can be a source of pride and comfort for the building occupants, which automatically enhances the perceived value of the property. You will find such an expert in John.
♦ Pool Landscape Design
Every great pool landscaping ideas has to start with a great concept, one that ideally combines elements of nature with sparkling blue waters. If you’re looking at something more than the traditional square concrete pool, then picture a natural lagoon hidden inside a lush tropical garden, complete with flowing elevation and a mini waterfall.
♦ Backyard and Front Yard Design
Backyard and front yard landscaping design can instantly transform existing properties. The artful and creative additions of a patio, fire pits, deck and ferns, among others, will elevate the aesthetic appeal and value of properties.
♦ Plant Selection Consultations
Our consultation extends far from the usual supplier recommendations for trees, plants and shrubberies. Instead, we take the time to explain to clients plant selection criteria, plant placement, plant care and plant maintenance.
♦ Environmental Landscape Design
We take great effort to incorporate ecological awareness and sustainability into our projects, and minimizing resource consumption of the plants introduced by using drought tolerant genus.
♦ Landscape Gardening
The art of garden landscaping lies in the selection of plants that will flourish within particular micro climates. A varied selection of seasonal and permanent plants, along with height, colour, foliage and planting symmetry, is important towards achieving the client’s ideal garden. Subsequent maintenance and care, and future gardening activities will also be taken into account during the conceptualisation stage.
♦ Irrigation Plan
A good irrigation plan ensures full optimisation of existing surface and underground water, especially towards new plant life. However, care should be taken to prevent damaging existing and future ecosystems.
♦ Fountain Design
Everyone loves a fountain, especially thematic ones. We provide visually attractive and durable fountain designs that blend with your garden and home.
♦ Hardscape Design
Hardscape materials, like boulders and rocks, are capable of instantly elevating mundane and frigid gardens into living works of art. Hardscape design also work well with water elements.
♦ Other Landscape Solutions
We offer several other support solutions for clients including stonework, carpentry, pruning, trimming and lighting.
