Four tips on designing your outdoor space

Four Tips on Designing your Outdoor Space

Since 1988, Melbourne Brick have been turning outdoor dreams into a dream outdoors. Recently, we partnered with a local design team to launch Melbourne Brick Landscape Design.

We know that your outdoor space is as much about aesthetics and function as it is about the products we sell, so we’re happy to provide you with a few short tips on how to go about renovating or designing your outdoor space.

As Australians, we love our outdoor area to be an extension of our home – a place where we can enjoy time with family and friends. Each of us has our own style and activities that we enjoy, but there are common steps that every design will follow:

  1. Purpose – what will you use your outdoor space for? Do you have kids or are you in retirement and the space will be just for the two of you. Are you an active gardener who is happy to maintain the plants? Do you want your garden to be a source of food?
  2. Aesthetics – what styles do you like? Are you into formality or relaxation. European or Asian or Aussie influence. What colours do you like?
  3. Location – does your garden face north or south, east or west?
  4. Activities – do you want outdoor cooking and entertaining areas, or is it purely for relaxation?

If you consider these elements in preparing a brief for our designers, they will be able to prepare ideas that fit your available space and meet your purpose and aesthetic considerations.

Then all you’ll have to do is enjoy your dream outdoors.

We’re known for our exceptional customer service, friendly and informed staff, high quality products and the kind of peace of mind you can only get from a company that has been servicing Victorians for over 28 years, and who will be here for many years to come.
