The educated landscape choice
Our ethos behind school landscape design comes from the desire to create a space that children love spending time in, where they can learn in a different way than they do in the classroom.
It’s well known that children learn crucial social and life skills through play. Our school landscaping solutions can help encourage that sense of play, to the benefit of the whole child. Aside from the obvious benefits that play can have on physical health, quality play can improve gross motor and fine motor skills, positively impacting children’s emotional and intellectual wellbeing, as well as their individual growth and social interaction.
Moving away from traditional school playgrounds filled with wall-to-wall asphalt, we can help you create a school landscape design that directly benefits the children whose minds you are developing. Whether that means providing enhanced nature-based play for primary school children, or a space for high school kids to congregate, study and socialise, we work with you to uncover the true potential from your school grounds design.
For school landscaping that’s designed not just to impress visitors – which it will – but to benefit children as they grow and develop, contact us today to discuss your options.
Kindergarten playground construction
Designed to help kids reach their potential, kindergarten promotes learning and development, preparing each child for school – and the many challenges and opportunities they will face in later life. While there are many factors that influence this growth, play is integral within each stage of early development.
Which is why creating the right environment for play is so important.
With that goal in mind, we will work with you to get the very best from your kindergarten playground design. Whether that means introducing natural elements to your playground, creating a kitchen garden or discovery garden, or adding structures such as play pods and play equipment, we will craft a solution that works within your kindergarten’s ethos to the benefit of each and every child who attends.
For more ideas regarding kindergarten and preschool playground design, contact us today so we can talk ideas. Large or small, no matter what you’re looking for from your project, we are here to assist from those very first discussions, right through to completion.

University landscaping and construction
When it comes to university landscape design, first impressions count. While potential students may look to the curriculum, facilities and faculty when deciding where to study, the campus landscape design surrounds all of that, creating an atmosphere that is either appealing – or perhaps, not so appealing.
At Landscape Solutions, we understand just how important first impressions can be, both for potential students and potential faculty members. We know that university campuses not only need to look appealing, impressing students, visitors and faculty alike; they also need to create a practical space that promotes the educational and emotional wellbeing of all who spend time there.
Whether your project is big or small, we can offer our extensive expertise in campus landscape design and construction to create a complete solution tailored to your needs. From manicured entrances and walkways designed to wow on first sight, to outdoor structures and carefully planned open spaces that continue to impress those who use them day-to-day, we offer end-to-end solutions that can’t help but excel.

Maintenance for school & university grounds
While an important part of our business involves crafting solutions as we work on new landscaping projects, we are also dedicated to providing ongoing maintenance, both on projects we have helped to create – and many that we haven’t.
We specialise in providing maintenance services to cover all aspects of landscaping, including the provision of landscape maintenance services for educational providers. So, as an education provider, why would you choose to outsource?
Quite simply, as a school or university, your business is education. That should be your focus, not the everyday needs of grounds maintenance. That is our focus. As experts in the industry, our business is landscaping. It’s what we do best. We know what needs to be done and when, and we have the skills to make sure it’s done properly.
Whether you’re looking for perfectly trimmed hedges and manicured turf, or sports fields that are always ready for action, we use our expertise to ensure your landscape maintenance needs are met, each and every time.
Converting your grounds maintenance to a private contract can reduce your operational costs by approximately 15-20%. Let us show you what we can do for you either by giving us a call – or checking out our Education Maintenance Services page.
Sporting facilities design and construction services
From a pick-up game of touch footy to the league’s grand final match, your pitch needs to be up to the challenge, all day, every day. With extensive experience in this field, we know just what it takes to not only provide you with the sporting facilities to meet your needs, but the know-how to maintain those facilities so they’re ready for anything.
With almost three decades in the game, we excel at finding the right solution for each project. One of the reasons for this is our flexibility. We’re not stuck on providing just one type of solution. Instead, we aim to match the solution to the project. Whether that means creating a complex multi-field multi-purpose sporting facility, providing you with routine end-of-season surface renovations, or simply upgrading your current irrigation system, we will discuss with you what you need, look at potential options, and then work to make your chosen solution the best it can possibly be.

Not sure where to start? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions.
When getting a landscaping construction quote, you should ask for proof of qualifications, a detailed breakdown of costs and schedules for payment and project progress.
Proof of qualifications includes copies of licences and past landscaping and construction projects. An itemised list of costs provides a clearer view of the project and the chance to prioritise features based on your budget. The same goes for scheduling. Knowing when payments are due and when to expect progress checkpoints will help you compare quotes and can keep nasty surprises from ruining the experience.
Landscape construction is the broad field of designing and building outdoor projects and can include a range of structures and horticultural aspects.
Landscape construction is generally broken down into three types. Civil landscape construction projects are focused on improving public infrastructure. Residential landscape construction projects aim to improve the shared public places and services citizens use. And commercial landscape construction projects are completed in and around businesses to improve their appeal to customers.
A landscape construction project manager acts as a team leader, ensuring work is completed on time and on budget.
These valuable team members also act as a communication channel between the team members, suppliers and other professionals working on a project as well as clients. Landscape Solutions provides a project manager that is dedicated to your project. He or she will be your convenient, dependable point of contact for any questions you have about anything regarding your site, project progress, budget, changes to your plan and more.
