What our customers are saying
There was never any chance of us being able to afford to buy or have built a well known ‘architect designed’ home. However what we realised, after getting to know you over the years, is we luckily got a highly recognised architect designed garden and entertaining area. You gave us things like a unique pebble mix pathway. Plus a variety of plantings from cottage to exotic and (friends tell us) some flora seldom seen. Additionally it is said that work such as yours can add value to a property. We know that to be financially true. The work you did on our investment property development in Beaumaris helped sell it for a record price.
David, it’s been 17 years since you first designed and managed the build/transformation of our backyard. Yet we are still complimented by friends new and old alike regarding the garden set up. It provides us pleasure, privacy and practicality. In short an enjoyable pastime & conversation piece!
Hi Alex and David K,
Thank you both very much for all your hard work, patience and attention to detail throughout this project.
The end result is fantastic. Your careful choice and supervision of specialists was a big contributor. And following up on the small points made all the difference.
Good luck for all your current and future projects,
David P and Helen
It is with great pleasure that we write this testimonial for Outdoor Creations.
From the time we initially spoke to David right through to our final inspection, we received professional design and project management services. Their design and choice of our landscape contractor (Pinnacle Landscapes) was exceptional and we are extremely pleased with the end result which was completed on time and within budget.
We are most grateful to David and his exceptional team for the fantastic outdoor garden they have created for us.
We highly recommend engaging Outdoor Creations to anyone looking to enhance their outdoor living areas.
Best Wishes – Stephen & Lesley Lennon
My experience with David has only ever been delightful. The professionalism and advice he provides is spot on. David first designed my garden 11 years ago on budget and on brief.
I have recently engaged with David again to turn my outdoor pond in to a dry creek bed. The process was seamless from the design to plant selection to the landscaper choice and best of all it looks great. I am so happy. in regard to value he is a gentleman and always provides more then he charges for.
If only we could have more people like David…
Jim De Giorgio
We could not be happier with the design and finished garden that David and his team created for us. It is now 4 years since he created our outdoor area and it meets our whole families needs perfectly. We found David to listen to our needs and preferences and then use his expertise and experience to make the finished product better than we ever imagined. Very highly recommended!
We had a newly built house on the site of our old home. The space to work with was very tight… 4 metres width and a substantial drop from floor level to the ground… a problem area. David saw the site and fairly quickly displayed a wonderful enthusiasm and creativity with what could be possible. Big ideas where you could have been timid. An above ground pool to deal with the height issue, a glass window wall, A sunken garden area in front of this. A wall at the back of the pool incorporating a leadlight window from our old home, water features on the wall. We found this too exciting to not follow through!
Couldn’t have asked for more from the team at Outdoor Creations. Super knowledgeable, super helpful, and just a pleasure to deal with. Our garden design was fabulous and David listened to our needs (with two small children who love the outdoors) and came up with solutions to suit us now and into the future. Highly Recommended.
David and his team were great. The garden design was spectacular while still being practical for our family. The construction team they suggested were amazing, a great crew and value for money. David told us on his first visit that when the gardens was completed it would be of the standard you would need to sell the house – he wasn’t wrong and when it was complete that is exactly what we did. The price we got for the house in a falling market was all down to the garden – we couldn’t be happier and would recommend David and his team to everyone!
Found the team and particularly David outstanding in the design of our outdoor space. The design was extremely technical, inclusive of pool and outdoor kitchen etc, and despite this, David and his team managed to fulfil the brief completely. They were able to achieve this by listening and providing a high level of client service. Would highly recommend Outdoor Creations.
Thank you for coming out and providing your expert input yesterday. You have captured what we discussed and more in plans provided. We were impressed with your knowledge and professionalism and appreciate your prompt action in both coming out and the plans.
After consultation with the pool provider there is now some room to move as far as timeframes are concerned.
Kerrie and I will consider your proposal and get back to you promptly.
Thks again, very impressive work
“You gave us things like a unique pebble mix pathway. Plus a variety of plantings from cottage to exotic and (friends tell us) some flora seldom seen. Also your original design layout/plantings have allowed us to supplement and evolve the garden as some plants come and go. I.e. there is always some new aspect to the garden to tend and admire. We also appreciated your expert advice along the way as to the best adjustments to make in keeping with changing circumstances.”

“David from Outdoor Creations created a complex garden that was the perfect marriage for the front of the house, and the rear, it turned out to be amazing !! David advised us against creating a fashion statement. So glad he did as this garden will still be stunning in 20 years’ time”

“We had a tiny space that we thought impossible to have our dreams fulfilled. David was recommended to us and created our dream Japanese inspired garden. Thank you to Outdoor Creations”
Brown from Malvern October 13, 2016
“We had a particularly challenging area between two classrooms that was dark and uninviting.
We were recommended Outdoor Creations by a colleague of mine at another school, where they had done some fantastic work.
We were not disappointed. David and his team came up with an amazing concept that engaged the students and created a thoroughfare that is bright, fun and fulfils over and above our expectations”
Bruce Mesley Principle of Dromana Primary School April 27, 2020
It has been absolutely great working with you and the team. It certainly is a beautiful space you have created and thank you to your team for getting it all done for us.
So nice to hear from you and thank you so much for sending through the photos. We are very so happy with how the space looks and it has made this crazy lockdown time a little easier by having a nice outdoor area to escape to.
Thanks again for all your work in helping us with in creating this fabulous project
Take care and keep well.
Outdoor Creations are leaders in landscape design
Your garden should be one that you are proud of, that suits the architecture thus adding value over and above what you spend. It should reflect your tastes, lifestyle and budget. Your garden should be practical, have enough space to entertain in, as well as the myriad of little often forgotten items, like the clothes lines, bin storage and general usability, while not compromising your garden looking fabulous
Every component of your landscape, the entertaining/alfresco area, the swimming pool and or spa (if you are having one), the hard and soft surfaces, paving decking or lawn, the possible water features, screening and of course the plants, will all be crafted to come together seamlessly together in a fabulous design
No matter the size of the space you want landscaped, whether you have a small inner-city courtyard, a large or extensive rooftop garden, a small or large residential garden, multi-unit developments, each is designed to fulfil on all your outcomes.
One part of our success is because we know how to listen to you. We are not interest in creating expensive fashion statements that are unduly expensive and will not last. Rather our Outdoor Creations are designed to be timeless and blend with the architecture.
