How We Work

 

Understanding how we work at A Better Life Outside.

Before signing up with a landscaping partner it is important to know how they will work and what to expect. Our landscape design process includes:

1. Initial landscape design consultation:

Our first step is to arrange an initial consultation. This is 1-2 hours of your time in which our consultant comes out onsite to meet with you. We will determine the scope of the project, your likes and dislikes, budget and function. We will take into consideration the existing environment and structures to suggest best placement, materials and colour schemes. We will give you options and ideas to help achieve your desired outcomes. We charge $350.00 for this advice. The consultation is done to determine the scope and therefore the cost of the design required for the project and provide as much good advice as we can so you're able to make informed decisions. The consult fee is deducted from the cost of the design if you choose to proceed.

2. Design Stage:

After the initial design consultation, we will provide a quote and scope of work for the concept design stage of the project. We will taylor the package to suit your project and your ability to be able to invisage the completed concept. The two main options are:

Standard 2D Design Package - This includes a 2D concept design and planting plan. A budget estimate or Lump sum quotation will also be provided if requested.

3D Design Package - This includes everything in the 2D package but also includes 3D rendered images of the finished product. You can even get a a 3D video to fly you through your new outdoor room or landscape while it's still on the drawing board!

3. Final designs:

Once we have your feedback and comments we will put together the final design and documentation. This may include a planting plan, site plan, detailed construction plan and a quotation to install if requested..

4. Construction:

If your project requires aproval, we can deal with your local council or a private certifying authority, a seperate quote would be provided for this.  Once all aprovals are done, we get started on the construction of your project and will keep you informed of our progress every step of the way.

Testimonials

"I can honestly say that the experience was amongst the best I have enjoyed in the many years of engaging contractors at various residencies that we have decorated or renovated. The team all worked very hard on-site with no issues or concerns noted by either myself nor raised by my neighbours. The quality of the workmanship was extremely high and the team were very responsive to any minor adjustment that I asked for as the project unfolded. The planting went very well and I was impressed with the high quality of the plants delivered. My wife and I now enjoy driving into the front driveway and seeing the green grass, the rich garden and experiencing the bubbling of the water and the various lights as the sun goes down."

"My wife and I had very little knowledge and experience regarding landscaping. We came across Life outside and from the get go they were brilliant and very helpful during the design stage, all the way through to project completion. Life outside employees were courteous and professional while working onsite and have done a wonderful job providing those final touches to our newly built home. We have now beautiful landscaping around our house along with a gorgeous deck in our backyard.My wife and I are very happy and highly recommend Life outside to anyone who is looking to landscape their property.

"We found the level of service and professionalism of everyone at "A Better Life Outside" to be exemplary - they completed our retaining wall and garden bed in the time frame we expected and were more than happy to tackle a couple of extra tasks for us when asked.The staff also cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day.The design and brain storming process was also a breeze both Matt and Dan were more than willing to listen to and work with our ideas -but were also happy to suggest alernatives and work within our budget.Highly recommended and will use them again for the next stage of our project."

"Hired to complete landscaping on a Duplex project. Very professional & courteous. Completed on time and was very happy with the results. Made a huge difference given some difficulties with other contractors who had worked on the retaining walls and drainage ;- only wish I had found out about lifeoutside before, as I would have given them the entire job!"
Paul Burslem - Ermington, NSW
"I just wanted to send a note expressing my true delight at dealing with both Matt and Dan. The service we received was above and beyond and extremely knowledgable. Both the guys were professional, friendly and very clever. Our experience has been one we will share with whomever will listen. We certainly wish we had engaged life outside prior to commencing any work around our home, we will now know for the future. Great customer service is few and far between in this present day, it was extremely refreshing to have such an enjoyable experience with Matt and Dan. Please pass on our gratitude to the guys."
Nicole Momirovski - West Pennant Hills
"Our renovations turned out better than what we had expected. Life Outside gave our family home the changes we wanted but could not come up with ourselves. They delivered a concept idea , made a few changes we wanted and then delivered to plan and budget. Our home is the talk of Beaumont Hills , our friends and family love to come over and enjoy our life outside . The after sales experince has also been great , have come back and made sure we are happy . I would highly recommend them"
John Amiradaki - Beaumont Hills, NSW
" From the moment we met Matt, Dan and Dave we knew we were in good hands.We chose A Better Life Outside to assist us with designing and completing the landscaping of our back yard. Having decided to install a new swimming pool and outdoor entertaining area, we worked with Matt and Dan to come up with the design. They brought plenty of ideas to the table and, more importantly, really listened to what we wanted.Once the design was finalised, Dave took over the construction management and worked with Ernie, Josh and others to bring it all to life.Looking back, it was a great experience for us. Whether it be slight adjustments we needed to make or general silly questions, nothing was ever too much trouble. The team were always respectful, friendly, professional and left the place clean and tidy each day.If we ever had to do it all again, I wouldn't hesitate using them. "
Steve & Yvette Amies - Glenmore Park, NSW
"Unfortunately, having owner built our house a few years ago I had very little faith in tradies being reliable, neat and professional.This all changed recently when we hired "A Better Life Outside" to work on our outdoor living area.The project manger from A better life Outside was very transparent, friendly and professional throughout the entire design and quotation process. When the construction started the trades people were polite, neat, fast and likable.I would come home everyday to a literally spotless work site, the entire experience was excellent from start to finish and we now have our dream outdoor living area all within budget, timeframe, headache free.I would have no hesitation in recommending this business.  "
