A little bit about us.
Outdoor Establishments is a multi-award winning landscape design, construction and maintenance practice. Together with a team of landscape architects, project managers, landscapers and horticulturists, directors Trystan Graham, Matthew Hook and Sam Westlake, boast more than 15 years of experience in the industry.
The team is committed to delivering high-quality projects throughout Sydney and beyond, ranging from small urban gardens and rooftops to large estates and multi-unit residential developments.
Outdoor Establishments invites clients to engage in a partnership - beginning with the first site visit and continuing through the design, construction and maintenance stages of the project.
This partnership ensures the long-term success of our landscapes. Collaborating with architects, designers, engineers and builders enable Outdoor Establishments to create outdoor spaces that both reflect the architecture and respect the site.
Open dialogue and the free exchange of ideas have allowed Outdoor Establishments to foster a mutually beneficial relationship between our design, construction and maintenance teams. The strength of this relationship is reflected in the creativity, quality and longevity of our work, ensuring the best possible results for all clients.
"The Sydney landscape varies so much from suburb to suburb, this is what fuels my passion for garden design. Knowing that every garden will be unique and challenging in it's own way."
Matt Hook - Director
