The demand for landscaping in Sydney has been steadily climbing. Residents are realizing the potential that their outdoor space has to offer and the benefits that a landscape architect can provide. There has been a recent increase in the demand for landscape design, particularly in urban areas.

Environmental benefits of landscape architecture include keeping non-native or invasive plant species out, along with providing a decreased need for plant maintenance and water. Landscape designers and contractors usually recommend a certain type of plants in specific areas, often combined with other natural non-living elements to create optimal landscaping in your own backyard.

Many Sydney residents are going back to basics – straying away from water consuming grasses – and focusing on native plants and using strictly local area species when landscaping. This is extremely beneficial to the environment because these plants naturally thrive in the area, so the amount of care and maintenance for the plants will be minimized. In addition, homeowners will not have to use excess water to support non-native species which reside in wetter climates. Native plants also help attract native animals and species, which can make for exciting wildlife encounters in your own backyard!

In addition to planting specific selected and native plants, landscaping can provide additional benefits with the use of non-living elements. Items such as rocks, woodchips and stone can yield beautiful landscape design, helping to minimise water and maintenance costs.
