All great pools & landscapes start with a great design.

OUTDOOR CREATIONS is a Melbourne based multi award winning Landscape design company.

We believe that a great Landscape design is one that suits the architecture, looks fabulous, is functional and practical and is not a fashion statement that will only date.

All components of the landscape, the entertaining/Alfresco area, a swimming pool or spa, the decking and or paving and of course the plants, all have to fit seamlessly together, like a fabulous jigsaw. If only one component is considered, without taking into account the whole Landscape design, then the saying, "A failure to plan is a plan to fail", may be an outcome.

We love to design and plan fabulous gardens that people love and use.
We design small suburban gardens through to large domestic Landscapes, schools and corporate spaces.
Timeless, fabulous and practical are adjectives used by our clients to describe the outcomes we have achieved for them.


"We were super impressed with David’s initial design and his follow up service to get the right contractors. Having renovated before, the follow up management of the entire project made our lives so easy."
