Wariapendi offers a design and consultation service for those wanting a beautiful, low maintenance garden using native plants. If you want colour and vitality with an abundance of native birds in your garden Wariapendi can provide the expertise necessary.

Why choose Wariapendi?

You will not just get one of ‘our staff’. Our design and consultation services are undertaken by Warren Walker. Warren is the Founder and Managing Director of Wariapendi Nursery and is a leading authority on native plants in SE Australia (read Warren’s bio for more information).
We also have the backing of an award winning production nursery so you can be assured that the species we recommend are available and grown to the highest standards.

We provide three levels of service. Initial discussions with you (over the phone or at the nursery) are required to get a brief of the concept/vision you have and the level of service you require. From there we will meet with you onsite.

Level 1 – Walk and Talk


This service provides you with an experienced horticulturalist coming out to your garden and giving you an assessment of your site and species suitable for it.

Cost – $150 per hour + travel @ $120/hour

Level 2 – Garden Design


This service takes a little longer and more thought. This level of service will provide you with a concept landscape design along with plant selection and approximate layout. Allows 2 hours on site along with 1 hour prior to visit to generate a base plan of the property with the design documented by hand on site. On larger sites or more complex design additional time may be required.
