We absolutely love the outdoor space the team created for us. They went above and beyond to make it perfect. Nothing I asked of them was too hard and many of our friends and family were impressed with the end result of our garden.
Thank you Stephen and Rachel. Helen and I very much enjoyed working with you in partnership from the first meeting on-site. Stephen, your enthusiasm, experience, eye for design and communication style really do set Sydney Design & Landscape Creations apart. We appreciated the co-design process, Rachel's early design models and how flexible you were in accommodating the changes. Eric and his offsider have a great work ethic and Helen felt they were very respectful. We will happily continue to act as references for your business.

Total professional in all aspects. Top notch quality and the years of experience really comes through. Highly recommendable. Completed job swiftly and with great communication.
Steve and his team have done an amazing job with our backyard; all our friends are gob-smacked when we show them what it now looks like!
Cheers Jeni & Keiron
Work was completed today, and we are very happy with the end result. Eric and his colleagues have been very dedicated and professional. You have a great team here! Once again, we thank you a lot for doing such a great job with our backyard. It was done in time and on budget. The team were super friendly and very professional. Awesome job!
Thanks again for doing such an incredible job and for all your efforts. We are really happy with the way the garden has turned out.
All the best, Marc & Aylene
Many people have stopped by to express how much they like the garden/layout and using the old sandstone really does enhance the garden. Again thanks to you and your team - the garden is fantastic - I am really enjoying it.
We were very happy to find somebody who understood our inner city context and took the time to learn about our taste. The finished product is just what we needed and the house has really benefited from a lovely outdoor space. Stephen and the crew respected our house and were friendly and professional and we are loving our new deck. Thank you for the attention and care given to the project and we look forward to arranging future improvements to our home.

"Punctual, friendly, honest and above all not pushy. Listened to all our ideas and provided advice accordingly and also provided good ideas of their own. After a previous attempt at getting landscaping done a couple of years back without looking into it (and getting burnt by a few thousand dollars) we finally bit the bullet and decided to try again. This time we researched it properly and after a few quotes on Landscape Design we decided to go with 2 companies to really get a good idea of what we wanted. Sydney Design & Landscape Creations were one of the companies, and after the design Stephen came up with to suit our situation and budget we couldn't be happier with our choice and went with them for the landscape construction too. Stephen was quite flexible regarding a mix of his ideas and the other landscape designer we had used, although both had suggested a lot of the same ideas. A nice surprise was no extra costs appearing out of nowhere, all the financials were fully transparent & the costs of all choices were upfront. They also double checked the finer points of the construction work (such as finishing heights etc.) before completing that section to make sure we were both on the same page which was a nice touch. The workmanship of Stephen & Valentine was first class and even when our old friend Murphy threw things their way it didn't faze them. Their pride in the work they do and the attention to details (even the small ones) meant the finished product is fantastic. An example is he built some additions to our outdoor deck but went to the effort of making sure the position of the new nails matched the old, to make it look as if it was all built at the same time. Another important factor these days is my family never once felt any distrust about them - it's a shame I felt the need to mention that but these days having strangers spending so much time on your property trust & feeling comfortable is important. In the end it felt like family friends had dropped by to do the work lol. The most important fact of all though is this - our backyard used to be a place for hanging the washing and my smoking area (and a small unproductive vege patch). Stephen & Valentine have now transformed it to a welcoming family & entertaining space with a great raised vege garden, and an area my 3yo son now loves to spend time in. Not only have they effectively increased the size of our home by making the space usable, but the quality of the work has also increased the value of our property. I could not recommend them highly enough, and in fact already have a family friend who after seeing the result wants them to work on their home. Thanks guys, and also thanks to Rachel who kept the admin side of the business smooth as silk regarding communication, contract details & accounts."
"Wow"...that's all I hear now when people step out onto my new back deck and level landscaped garden. It's a far cry from the useless, ugly, sloping land that I was too embarrassed to show. I was lost for ideas and under a tight budget. Then Stephen came along and transformed my home the way I could never have imagined. He did all this with the utmost friendliness and professionalism...always courteous and informative, clean and tidy...nothing was ever an issue. I highly recommend Stephen and his team to anyone looking to transform their outside area from "Drab" to "Wow".
"Thank you again for everything you have done, from spending time listening to all our ideas, working them in, building on them, and finally making the pictures into reality in our yard. And of course for humouring us with the features we wanted to work around or do ourselves! It has been a fun and interesting process to go through and the result is fantastic."
