Designing with De Vries

How can De Vries Designs consistently produce beautiful spaces that our clients love?

Because we understand landscaping is more than creating a beautiful backyard. It’s about making your vision a reality, and the only way to reach the desired end result is to go on the journey together. Our two-step process ensures we understand your vision, explore all tangible possibilities, and come to the best solution.

The De Vries promise

We promise to enhance your landscaping vision through beautiful bespoke outdoor spaces, designed to be lived in and enjoyed for a lifetime.

Our Steps



The aim of this initial consultation is to get to know each other. We want to know your vision, desired aesthetics and functional requirements for your future outdoor lifestyle.

We will assess the site conditions, discuss possibilities, identify any challenges, and set a budget. Just as importantly, you will learn about us, see how we work and gain an understanding of the processes involved to complete your project.

While we prefer to do the consultation face-to-face at your project location, we can also conduct it via phone or video call if need be. Following the consultation, Sam will prepare a tailored project brief and design fee proposal for your consideration.

(Fee applicable)



Once the brief and proposal have been approved by you, the De Vries Designs team prepare a concept package that illustrates a true-life representation of what your space will look like.

This package includes:

+ 3D fly-through model
+ Presentation prints with concept images
+ Landscape concept plan, drawn to scale

This stage of the process is a collaborative one, and we invite you to share your ideas, views, likes and dislikes. Together, we will discuss and refine the concept to ensure your perfect outcome is achieved.
