Paal Grant Designs in Landscaping
Paal Grant Designs in Landscaping is a fully integrated Landscape design and construction business providing personal attention from the beginning of the project to beyond its creation.
GETTING STARTED ON A DESIGN FOR YOUR GARDEN…
A 60-90 minute consultation to meet with the client is arranged to discuss ideas, requirements, budget and view other completed projects. Tell us about your ideas; your answers to the design brief will form the basis for the development of your landscape design. A firm quote can be given after the site inspection. This individual approach ensures your design suits your property, lifestyle and budget.
The consultation fee of $250 includes digital photos and measuring of the site, as well as a follow up meeting. The consultation fee will be credited towards the design once engaged to design your garden.
Garden designs begin at $850 with any complimentary first changes made. The use of measurements and photos taken of the site, as well as a copy of your house plans assist in the process of commencing the design. Based on factors such as the size of the site, the terrain and the amount of design work required, will all influence the design cost.
We specialise in WATER WISE and LOW MAINTENANCE garden design. It is possible to create a lush garden on little water by carefully considering plant selection. We cleverly combine indigenous plant varieties and succulents with exotic species to achieve an attractive, yet water–friendly look. The use of recycled timbers and found objects are also a concept highlight.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest standards in design and construction at an affordable price, through drawing on our established networks to buy quality whole sale plants and materials at the best prices. We offer free quotes for construction of the whole project, or priced by the hour.

Melbourne International Flower and garden show 2009…
Combining Paal Grants unique Landscaping with Entanglements Melbourne Metal Art studio, we are going to create two unique outdoor rooms.
The centre room is the outdoor dining oasis. Showcasing Entanglements rusty light poles, the wrought iron candle display, metal and recycle timber dining table, accompanied with stackable rusty cube stools.
Cross the recycle timber path though the raised garden beds to a circular lounge area where you and your guests can chat and enjoy the ambience of the open fire pit.
To best use the vertical space in this compact area, a wall garden consisting of cool colours and edible plants will screen you from the elements or the neighbours!
Cross through to the sculpture garden and wind around the circular timber path way which encompasses the full size metal Boab tree sculpture and be inspired by Paal Grants unique dry garden bed.
Key design features…
- Modular pre-fabricated garden
- All components crafted in the Entanglement’s studio and shipped to site
- Functional sculpture pieces
- Introducing the notion that pergolas, outdoor furniture, planters, screens and fences can be a work of art
- The use of rusty steel as a primary medium, as well as a renewable and traditional Australian medium which ages and blends harmoniously in the outdoors
- Functional raised veggie patches and wall gardens. The use of vegetables for colour and to promote a healthy and economic outdoor life style, in these troubled financial times. An innovative approach is applied, where space is limited, as these gardens can be installed on roof tops, balconies, or back yards.
- Water conscious as a dry garden, native and succulent plants are chosen to complete the design.
- The attention to detail in the selection and use of foliage, colour and texture reflect Paal’s artistic passion and will truly inspire time to spend in the garden.
