You’re protected by our 3 guarantees!

When you choose OuterSpace as your partner, you don’t have to worry.
Our three guarantees are there to give you peace of mind about your investment.

If you can dream it, we can bring it to life

The era of gardens is over, as every year people realise the potential of outdoor living at their homes. The trend for summer landscaping this year is bright colours and comfortable living areas with an ever increasing range of sofas and soft furnishings that are designed to withstand the elements. You can even turn a wall into a feature with structured areas for plans and irrigation that makes it all too easy.

 

Your outside space can be designed to bring resort-style living to your back-yard, including outdoor kitchens with running water, or a crackling fire to roast marshmallows on a crisp Autumn evening under the stars. Your landscape design options are limited only by what you can dream up.

Each of our steps are wrapped around your specific needs. so every solution is as unique as you are.
Plan, Design & Budget

 

Our early stage planning and investment proposal development starts with a meeting to find out about how you live your lives and would like to enjoy your space, this can be done on video or at our offices. We will produce some ideas and early sketches, plus a fee proposal for developing full design concepts.

 

Once agreed, we’ll meet on site to assess the section and from there we will draft up full design concepts, planting plans and calculate a full investment documentation for your needs.

Construction & Project Management

 

At this point you will be assigned a specific construction and project management team that suits your project needs. This can include specialists in pool works or electrical. We work with a number of partners for these parts of the project.

Planting & Irrigation

 

Plant selection is determined by our architect, but our specialist planting team work with local nurseries to select the plants and ensure they get a great start. We will work on an irrigation plan that makes caring for plants easier, and cover our work with our Plant Health Promise for the first 12mths.

 

Once bedded in, we will give you a care guide on how to ensure your plants thrive in their new home.

Installations, Features & Lighting

 

If you’ve chosen feature such as lighting or outdoor equipment, this will be installed next. Some products fare better outside in the elements than others, and we guarantee all products that we source from our known partners, such as protective covers or light fittings. We can also help you to source the right soft furnishings for outdoors to bring your space bang up to date with trends and complement the hard and soft landscaping features of your design.

Investing in lighting & sound systems

 

The evening’s drawing to a close. There’s a stunning sunset, and you’re relaxing in the spa, sipping on your favourite drink. The evening is still warm and you wish you could be staying outside for just that little bit longer…

 

These days, you’ll find that outdoor lighting is no longer an afterthought, it’s an integral part of any landscape and garden plan. Professionally designed and installed, it not only adds functionality and security to your outdoor areas, and value to your home, it can beautify your garden, create a cosy ambience in your outdoor ‘lounge’ or set the mood for a great night out in your own back yard!

Choosing a water feature or pool

 

The sun is out and it’s a stunning day – so what better place to be than the pool deck, relaxing on a comfy lounger or enjoying a poolside barbecue with the family. With the shift to outdoor living, the swimming pool is coming into its own as a central feature of modern landscaping and garden design.

 

Aside from the enjoyment it will provide for you and your family in the years to come, a professionally designed and landscaped pool is one of the best ways to add value to your home.

Outdoor fires and braziers

 

Picture yourself relaxing beside a crackling fire, chatting with friends, and enjoying a slice of delicious wood-fired pizza from your very own pizza oven! As outdoor living increasingly becomes an extension of our homes and personalities, so too our outdoor spaces are evolving to become areas where we want to chat, dine and relax with our family and friends.

 

Fortunately, with New Zealand’s mild climate and a little help from the right landscape professional, it’s a lifestyle that is easily attainable.

 

From a BBQ on the deck to a fully customised outdoor kitchen complete with the latest furniture and appliances, we can all enjoy living and entertaining outdoors – whatever the weather.
