Exterior style makeovers
We can completely transform the look and feel of the exterior of your home with our exterior style makeovers. Using 3D CAD design we can show you our recommendations for your updated façade, and we’ll select furniture and finishes that will tie your new style together with the perfect finishing touches.
If you’re selling your home, first impressions count, and the garden is the first thing that prospective buyers will encounter. It’s amazing what difference some mulching and some gorgeous new flowering plants can add. A new fence, a defined garden bed, some render on those tired 80s bricks…we’ll help you work out a plan that buyers will love and offer you a great return on investment.

First and foremost, landscape design needs to work for the people who live there. That’s why we collaborate with you to understand your needs, your personal taste, and the potential of your space, to deliver beautiful, functional exteriors you’ll never want to leave.
What things do we do when renovating a garden?
Like any landscape design project, there’s lots to consider with a garden renovation project. We ask lots of questions to deeply understand what you want to achieve. These are just some of the things we have done during garden renovations:
- Major pruning and hedge trimming.
- Adding new plants that are tailored to your climate, desired style and ongoing maintenance needs.
- New pathways, garden beds, planter boxes, screening, pavers, pergolas, alfresco areas, water features.
- Lawn rejuvenation and reseeding, or lawn removal and replacement with other soft finishes.
- Reimagining the front façade with new finishes and plantings to refresh old brick homes.
- Complete exterior styling including furniture and soft furnishings.
For exterior style makeovers we can help you visualise the project with the use of our 3D CAD visualisation program, which shares the impact of the transformation even before the project has commenced.

Frequently asked questions.
How much does a garden makeover cost?
The size of your garden, and what you want to achieve will determine the cost, which can vary widely. As a rough guide, a general tidy up and refresh of a standard suburban front and backyard might cost around $5,000, and a total transformation could be anywhere into six figures if you are adding an alfresco area and pool. To get a guide, book your garden renovation discovery call now. With a rough idea of the result you’re after, we can provide you with the garden plans to get your estimates from landscapers. Landscapers need detailed plans to give accurate quotes otherwise you risk getting a high ball park figure.
How can I modernise the exterior of my house?
There are many clever ways to spruce up a tired house exterior. You can add rendered finishes to dated bricks, use paint, or add porches, screening plants, and shutters. We use 3D CAD design so you can visualise the recommended changes before you spend a cent on construction. We can help you with a step-by-step plan to transform your home.
