How do we initiate a landscape design with OuterSpace?

Just email us at info@outerspacelandscapes.co.nz or call us on 0800 100 750 to speak to one of our experts. We will arrange to meet with you to discuss your project. Meetings can be at our offices or onsite. At the initial meeting, we suggest that you bring your house plans, your great ideas and any other information relating to your property’s landscaping.

What’s the next step after my initial meeting with OuterSpace?

When we meet with you, we’ll talk through your project and your ideas. We’ll ask plenty of questions and we’ll suggest the best solutions for your space.


With this process, we develop an understanding of your requirements and of what solutions will work for your landscape design. We create a fee proposal for you, and upon acceptance of the proposal, we start the first concept drawing for your outside space.

How long does it take for you to create a full landscape design for my garden?

A full landscape design typically takes 6 weeks from the date of the first site visit to a completed concept plan with a planting plan. For projects with tight deadlines, we can often shorten this period.


If you are building a new home or renovating, we recommend that you engage us for your landscape design earlier in the process as this allows time to work with the architects or house designers. That way, we can have the landscape plans completed to meet your deadline.

If OuterSpace creates my landscape design, do I have a choice as to who constructs it?

That’s entirely your choice. Most clients are delighted with the OuterSpace design process and the resulting design, so they ask us to proceed with construction. Sometimes a builder constructs part of the landscaping, and sometimes the homeowners tackle the project themselves.


Any questions or for more info, please call 0800 100 750 or email info@outerspacelandscapes.co.nz.

I’ve had a design done by another landscape architect – can you construct it?

Yes, we offer a comprehensive construction service and would be thrilled to help you with your project. Just email us at info@outerspacelandscapes.co.nz or call us on 0800 100 750 to speak to one of our experts.

I don’t live in Christchurch. Can you still do a design for me?

Yes absolutely. We undertake landscaping projects throughout Canterbury as well as in Queenstown and Wanaka.

Do you work with architects?

Our experienced and skilled Senior Landscape Architect would be happy to help with your landscaping enquiry. However, we are also able to work with external architects taking care of the construction of your project. The earlier in the project we can link in with your architect, the better.

Can I have a landscape concept plan designed without a planting plan?

Your landscape design doesn’t necessarily require a planting plan to be created at the same time. We can provide you with a landscape concept plan to allow us to move to the pricing process.


Creating a planting plan once construction is underway can give a better perspective of the specific plants that will work best for your outer space.
