School Landscapes

Everyone remembers their best and worst teachers, forever. The same can be for the recreation spaces for young people

Schools recreation space and general playgrounds can play an integrative and vital developmental role and as such should be treated with the same respect with the play space design as is the teaching

Creating spaces that are tailored to the specific needs of the users is critical. Play spaces that are creative, stimulating and restful. Places to learn, explore and interact are critical for the spaces we design.

We also believe that they have to be a match for the school, not designer gardens with any relevance. As such careful consideration is put into the materials that are the best match for the users. Soft surfaces, organic materials where possible, shade and stimulation are all combined after careful consultation with the directors, principals and users to arrive at the optimum outcome. An outcome that you, the directors, principals and users not only love and are proud of but are eager to use as much as possible.

The Outdoor Creations team are recognised experts in the design of school grounds, early learning centres and parkland spaces. We are committed to making spaces that young people want to engage in. School outdoor spaces are designed for students and the teachers as well as to enhance the school’s overall appearance and presentation.

David Kirkpatrick, TV Gardening Celebrity, Landscape Architect Author, Lecturer and Muti Award Winning Landscape Design Architect will design and consult with you every step of way. You will be thrilled with the end result that David and his team of Melbourne based landscape design experts create and implement for your corporate landscape project.

"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"
