In 1978, Robert Boden and two associates established a specialist landscape design and construction company which quickly grew to industry prominence throughout the 1980’s and early 1990’s.
After fifteen years of landscape industry experience including design and project management, Robert founded his own garden design company in 1993.
Specialising in the creation of high quality domestic gardens throughout Victoria and interstate, Robert Boden Design has established itself as one of Melbourne’s leading design offices, employing qualified designers using the latest CAD technology.
All projects are individually designed to suit a client’s needs, to complement their building’s architectural features and interiors and to afford gardens which stand the test of time.
For in excess of thirty-five years, all projects have been initiated through the recommendations of past clients, architects, interior designers and other consultants who appreciate quality, attention to detail and excellence in garden design.
Robert Boden Design provides a professional service based on experience and expertise. We would be happy to discuss any aspects of your existing or new garden landscape requirements.
Garden planning generally consists of a number of stages which link together to ensure an orderly progression of works from conception to completion. These stages are:
Analysis of existing site conditions including services, vegetation, surrounding views, fencing and levels, etc.
Development of a Concept Design for the entire garden addressing various issues discussed at the initial client briefing.
Production of a computer drawn Master Plan incorporating all issues and design solutions addressed in the Concept Design stage.
Technical Design and Documentation including lighting, drainage, levels, detail drawings, sections and elevations, 3D imaging (if required) and specifications for all landscaping works.
Design of planting schemes which complement both garden and building including detailed planting schedules.
Tendering of the landscape construction works with recommended contractors and the analysis of costings prior to selecting a suitable landscaper.
Administration of the contact to oversee the quality of the works carried out, to work through issues that may arise, to deal with contractors’ progress claims and to liaise with clients, architects, builders and other consultants as required.
Our goal is to create interesting, inspiring and ageless gardens which are aesthetically pleasing yet practical, functional yet restful, intimate yet inviting to all.
Our team consists of experienced, qualified and enthusiastic design specialists who aim to create exciting gardens matched to your immediate and future needs.
