Step 1

Landscape Design

Once you contact us via phone or through the website, we will arrange a time to meet you on site, to obtain a thorough understanding of your landscape requirements. Only after we understand your needs can we then begin to design the right outdoor space for you and your family.

Step 2

Obtain Permits and Approval

Many landscape construction projects require building permits and approval from council and other companies such as Yarra Valley Water. We have a great understanding of this process and are more than happy to obtain these on your behalf.

Step 3

Landscape Construction

The landscape construction process is usually the lengthiest, but most exciting stage of the process. It is where you will see your new garden come to life. Once the permits have been obtained the landscape project can commence.
