Design and planning are a critical part of your new patio, pergola, deck, alfresco or outdoor area. Our experienced team will work with you to ensure it's success.

Design consultation

Call us and we will arrange an appointment for one of our Design Consultants to visit your home and discuss your needs and desires for your outdoor area. We'll listen and discuss the design elements, materials and show you samples from our range.

We then start putting pen to paper and prepare a concept drawing for you along with a quotation. This can all usually be done in one visit but with more complex jobs we may need to arrange a time for a follow up visit.

Accepting the quotation

Once you're happy to proceed and we have the design details complete we ask you to pay a small deposit. The next step is for us to prepare your documentation ready for council.

Plans and Council

We draw detailed plans, marry this with engineering and submit your project to the local authorities for approval. During this process the council may have some queries, we'll sort these out but will involve you if any changes or alterations to the original plan need to be made.

Most projects usually pass through the council process without any problems. Approval time varies greatly by area but may take six to twelve weeks. We'll also keep you informed of any delays and when approval has been received. Some complex projects that require additional engineering or for projects in heritage areas it may take a little longer.


The next phase of your project is production. We will confirm material selections and colours, order materials and prepare your project. If your project is painted this will be done in our factory before delivery.
