The first step in landscaping your yard is to find landscape contractors or a landscape architect in Sydney and discuss what you want out of your new outdoor area. People choose to landscape for many reasons. They could be purely aesthetic purposes, to add a new element such as an outdoor lounge or swimming pool or to lower the maintenance requirements of a yard by xeriscaping or planting native species. No matter your reason for landscaping, landscape architects will be able to cater to your needs and create an outdoor living space as individualised and unique as you are.

It is a good idea to start your landscape design process by brainstorming a list of uses for your newly landscaped yard and must have requirements. You can also look through landscape design magazines or at landscaping image galleries online to get an idea of the design style you like. Once you have an idea in mind or a collection of ideas, meet with your landscaper to review. Your landscape designer will surely have some additional ideas to further enhance your design. Now comes the fun part where you and the landscape contractors plan and start to piece together your landscape design. It won’t be long until you have a total lawn makeover and jealous neighbours!
