Organic Artistic Garden Design
Your garden is a mini-ecosystem that provides nourishment and habitat for wildlife as well as humans! Talisa Tulip Gardens are designed with ecological sustainability in mind. With qualifications in art, design and horticulture she will design a beautiful and functional space where you can relax and enjoy yourself.

Talisa Tulip has over 10 years experience in the Sydney region and is available for consultation by email and in person. Her service ranges from basic garden advice, troubleshooting problem areas, plant selection and watering solutions through to designing a concept plan, project plan and project management. Her network of landscaping professionals will construct your new garden.

Successful garden designers choose plants that suit the nature of the site, rather than try to amend the site to suit the plants that they’ve chosen. We choose plants that suit your particular climate; the amount of sun or shade; the degree of windiness; how wet or dry the garden generally is; how heavy (clayey) or light (sandy) the soil is. We consider how tall the plants grow; how well the colours complement each other; how well they provide year-round interest in the garden; how much pruning, watering and fertilising they require. We take particular note of the plants that grow well in gardens in your neighbourhood.

All of these factors are considered by professional garden designers and give some insight into the fees they charge. It is money well spent to take a professional approach. You may find you save time and expense. Your garden is an extension of your home and a reflection of, and an adjunct to, your lifestyle. It’s worth taking the time to do it well.
