Swimming Pool Landscapes

It is critical to consider that the swimming pool is a part, one component only, of the total landscape. The mistake you want to avoid is considering the pool first, and then thinking about the rest of the landscape.

The things that are vital to consider are:  What sort of pool is best going to suit the architecture and your specific needs? What is the overall budget going to be, not just the pool? This is so important as too often the total garden and pool surround budget is a surprise and then awful compromises can happen to your landscaping project.

What are the materials and fencing to be used around the pool that will beast marry with the entire garden?

We bring years of experience in what is the best type of pool for you, concrete or Fiberglass, what shape and size will best suit all your specific needs, the budget, the architecture and the total garden layout.

This means you are not gambling, perhaps with a limited knowledge, on an enormous expense, but rather you are getting highly experienced advice that will enable you to arrive at the best possible conclusions for you and your family to enjoys for years to come.

The Swimming pools we design (like all aspects of our gardens) are timeless. Sometimes radical and fun, sometimes formal, sometimes classically simple, every pool is designed to be part of a total picture.

All great pools & landscapes start with a great design.

Outdoor Creations is an industry leader and multi-award-winning landscape design company with over 30 years of developed expertise across Melbourne.

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 clothe 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.

The same principle applies to school landscapes or corporate spaces, designing garden spaces that are fulfilling, useful, practical and a joy to be in and admire.

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.












"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"
