A big part of what the Lifestyle Gardens Design & Build team does, is help clients figure out exactly what they want from their outdoor spaces. After all, no two Queens Park property owners are wholly alike – some want a blossoming green space, while others want practical, low-maintenance hard landscaping features, such as paving and artificial lawns. Everyone’s garden landscaping needs are different, and we’re sure to take them into account whatever project we’re delivering as landscaping and fencing contractors. We don’t do one-size-fits-all!
For the benefit of local homeowners, we’ve provided some expert design tips below.

Consider Space – Every property owner in Queens Park only has a certain amount of space in their gardens, so it pays to think about how you can maximise it. Existing paving or hard landscaping features may be taking up too much space, and you may want to remove them altogether to start with a blank slate. New designs should aim to optimise the space, and this includes not overcrowding gardens with too many features.
Choose a Theme – The best gardens around Queens Park have a distinct theme. For example, a clean, minimalistic aesthetic where a paving and fencing contractor ensures a consistent colour scheme. Alternatively, you might opt for a classic English country garden with rustic furniture, hard wood decking and some of the nation’s best-loved flowers.
Keep it Consistent – Most property professionals agree that homes should be consistent in design and style, meaning an outdoor space should be an extension of the interior living area. There are many ways that garden landscaping experts, such as us, accomplish this. For example, by matching hard landscaping materials to indoor colour schemes, or by incorporating garden furniture which is similar to interior pieces.
Maintenance – How much time do you have to keep your garden landscaping and hard landscaping features well maintained? If the answer is “not much”, then it may be worth choosing low-maintenance options. For example, artificial lawns can be a godsend for Queens Park homeowners who lack the time or inclination to water, de-weed and fertilise a lawn. All those tasks add-up, both in terms of time and money.
Budget – As with any property improvement, it’s important that before calling in a paving or fencing contractor, you have a set budget in mind. This might be even more important with garden landscaping / hard landscaping than similar design and build projects, as once you start improving your garden it can be difficult to stop! Let budget influence the materials you choose – it might be better to opt for a cheaper type of stone or wood to ensure that you don’t shoot well over the total cost you’re aiming for. It is also worth considering long-term costs, for example, artificial lawns can save homeowners considerable money over the years.
