Our Process

When you engage Fifth Season Landscapes to create your new outdoor space, you are taken through a step-by-step process that our Directors have honed to perfection after many years of experience designing and constructing some of the best landscapes in Sydney.

Initial Consult

This stage will involve a site visit to discuss ideas and options for your garden design, including entertaining area/s, outdoor room, swimming pool, BBQ area, and so on. We will also talk through your budget for the project and the best way to manage that through the construction phase.
After the initial site visit you will be supplied with a design fee proposal. The design fee proposal will consist of a design brief developed from the initial consult.

Concept Design

During this stage, you are able to see your new landscape come to life on screen. Here is where we develop a concept for your design, enabling you to visualise what your new garden or outdoor area will look like. You will have the option to select 3D perspectives to ensure you can properly visualise your new landscape, along with a budget estimate of construction costs.
Following your initial feedback, we will then refine the concept and turn the budget estimate into a fixed price construction quote. During this process we will look to address all items within the brief, along with any other specific requests, in order to ensure the final concept meets both design brief and budget.

Approval Drawings

This stage will come about if the development requires approval through either council (Development Application) or a private certifier (Complying Development Consent).

Design Development + Detailing

Design Development and Detailing involves the preparation of construction drawings to refine the concept plan and detail finishes for the project. This stage includes drawings and specifications for the key construction elements along with any required design development and detailing throughout the construction process. This will include site visits, plant set-out and detail drawings, such as planting and lighting plans, along with the specification of all material selections and a meeting to review and approve all of these items.

Construction Certificate

Once the Development Application or Complying Development Consent has been approved and the contract has been signed, we will obtain the Construction Certificate, which is required before any work can commence on site.


Now begins the phase where we bring your landscape design to life through our carefully tailored landscape construction program! During the construction phase, our team will keep you informed every step of the way to ensure the build runs as smoothly as possible.


Finally, the best bit: we hand over your completed landscape, designed and constructed for you and your family will enjoy throughout all seasons, for many years to come.
