About CDP


Colombo Design Partnership (CDP) offers complete landscape architecture, landscape design, construction and maintenance. For over the last 30 years, Director, Tim Rayson, a qualified Landscape Architect and Member of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, has worked with some of Australia’s leading landscape architecture firms including Tract Consultants and Conybeare Morrison. Tim offers extensive experience in corporate, commercial, residential and public realm projects.

Tim works with many of Melbourne’s leading architects, interior designers and landscape designers such as Jack Merlo, Rick Eckersley and Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) who appreciate CDP’s understanding of their design intent and our aim to meet their needs and maintain the integrity of the overall vision. Our involvement has covered private, municipal, institutional and commercial projects, both as principal and consultants.

CDP offers design analysis, detailing, plant and material selection, budgeting, cost analysis, tendering administration, project management and construction.

CDP works within a wide range of given parameters, whether environmental, architectural, or budgetary, to produce creative and functional solutions. We enjoy exploring and creating new landscapes from innovative products, plants and materials.

Our designs are underpinned by the idea that ‘gardens are for people’ – spaces to be enjoyed and used as well as viewed. With this in mind, we aim to design a solution that combines logic, individuality and functionality.
