How to choose a Landscape designer

Landscape design companies, and landscaping in general, encompass many services. In your search for a landscape contractor, you will find that some companies specialise in specific areas (e.g. maintenance or paving) whereas others, like Life Outside, perform a myriad of landscaping services.

A good place to begin your search is with referrals from friends and neighbours who have used a professional landscape contractor or designer. You may consider contacting a property owner you are not acquainted with, who has an obviously pleasing, professionally landscaped property, for a referral.

Before choosing a Landscaper ensure that they are licenced. We only use licensed tradesman and our contractor license no. is 215190C. You may be interested to know that a lot of 'so called landscapers' in Sydney are not licensed or qualified to perform the work you require.

It is important to remember that landscaping, particularly landscape design and installation, is not a commodity for which a price tag can be easily attached. Purchasing landscape design and installation services might better compare to purchasing art. Landscapes that are pleasing to the eye, functional, and of lasting quality require professional design and installation drawing on many years of experience and dedication.

At Life Outside we have a design package to suit everyone. Contact us today to discuss our initial site consultation fees and packages. Ask us about our all new multiphase landscape design packages. Perfect for the people with long term visions of brilliance!

Before you do anything, we highly recommend an initial consultation with our Lifestyle consultant Matthew Coates.
Initial consultations with Matthew include:

A 1 to 2 hour meeting

  • An assessment of what you need and what you really want, as well as your lifestyle requirements and/or dream
  • An assessment of how to get the most out of your existing lifestyle arrangement (home and garden).
  • An assessment of the budget for the project
  • He will then provide a proposal of the best way for you to proceed with the project based on budget and time constraints.
