Whatever your challenge, regardless of the location and geographical constraints, 2MH Consulting can provide practical and engaging landscape design. Throughout Victoria, we have delivered landscape designs from inaccessible mountain top locations to sun-scorched dry plains to soggy wet valleys and everything in between.
Public Space Planning
Integrating landscape design into attractive and usable public spaces is one of our specialities and passions. Throughout Victoria, local governments engage 2MH Consulting to provide landscape design and project management for public spaces of all shapes and sizes. We can turn even the smallest bit of land into a functional, aesthetic space for the community to enjoy.
Public Art Integration
Holistic landscape design involves more than planting. It also involves intuitive wayfinding, consideration of ongoing maintenance implications (significant for local government projects), and public spaces that incorporate public art and sculpture. 2MH Consulting has the skills and experience to commission stunning public art and project manage their installation and maintenance.
While we are often engaged to design new landscape projects, the reality is that most local governments and sporting organisations have existing landscapes that need to be managed. Over time these public spaces need to be renewed. To conserve your budget, we start with what is in place already and recommend cost-effective enhancements that can renew the space.
Beautiful landscape design on paper or on screen is merely a start to the project. We also provide expert horticulture knowledge to ensure our designs incorporate plants that are appropriate for your local area so that they will thrive for the long term and be easy to maintain. We work with horticulture specialists who have advanced knowledge of native plants for your area.
Health and safety requirements for public spaces mean that you need to assess trees for health and for potential falls regularly. Our landscape designs intentionally feature trees that tend to be safer over the long term. We also provide expert arboriculture assessments of existing trees and can recommend and provide appropriate tree lopping, pruning and targeted removal of problem trees.
2MH Consulting and Director, Mick Hassett, have been actively working in the horticultural and landscape design space for over 25 years. Quality irrigation design is an integral part of any project that requires the controlled distribution of water. Whether it’s irrigating natural turf, wetting select synthetic grass, or watering red porous tennis courts, sound irrigation design is critical to a sports facility’s success.
