Your Garden

Designed especially for who you are

Your GardenWe at OUTDOOR CREATIONS have two passions. First, to design a garden that supports the architecture, acts as a frame for the architecture, showing off the architecture at its best. Second, to design a garden that suits the specific needs and tastes of the owner. Our special skill is to combine these two requirements in a form that adds value to the property.

Backyard & Front Yard Garden Design

Backyard & Front Yard Garden DesignA small space can be delicate. Too often landscaping ideas that seemed good at the time only increase the sense of being hemmed in. Good design flows from solid understanding of proportion. The OUTDOOR CREATIONS team is highly experienced in successfully making even the smallest backyard or front yard garden feel spacious and welcoming.

Pool Landscaping

Pool LandscapingThe careful and informed choice of placement of the swimming pool in a garden is crucial to the resulting effect. OUTDOOR CREATIONS can provide the expertise to make sure this critical decision is made correctly.
At OUTDOOR CREATIONS, we design pools to maximize the use of the space both in and around the pool itself. 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.

Corporate Landscape Creations

Corporate Landscape CreationsA corporate garden can reflect and enhance a corporate?s culture and identity. If planned well it can also simultaneously provide a place for staff, somewhere they can take time out and find tranquility and come back refreshed. It should, therefore be practical as well as dramatic.
At OUTDOOR CREATIONS, we consider the user of the space to be as important as the look of the space. How does the environment work with traffic flows, high amounts of shade and the wind patterns? Do people have welcoming places to sit and converse? Is the garden easy to keep clean and vandal free? We address these and many more questions before the detailed design is started.
