4. Start Small
Part of creating a fabulous landscaped garden is to develop a plan and enjoy the process.
5. Work around a focal point
That may be a sculpture or a stunning plant/tree or an existing structure. The aim is to draw your eye and move it through the landscape.
6. Focus on scale and pacing
Try adding an occasional element that’s different from the existing landscape and will stand out.
7. Ideas for Patios and Decking
Often a critical component of achieving an effective design is maximising the amount of space available. View our decking gallery for inspiration!
Swimming pools and spas are common components of backyard landscaping and are especially popular with those who like to utilise their space for entertaining.
9. Be Open to change
Be honest about what you like and what may fall out of favour.
10. Selecting a Landscape Company
Always check the Builders Licence via Consumer and Business Affairs website. Ask for a copy of a current display list of jobs completed before commencing.
Local landscapers are generally more familiar with the local conditions, and trends.
