Residential Landscape Design

Surround has extensive experience in residential landscape design and has produced elegant, award-winning gardens.  We embrace the challenge that a range of scales and environments can present and love working one on one with our clients to create their ideal landscape.

We believe that residential landscape design needs to be client-focused, whilst also complementing the architectural aesthetic of the home and the surrounding environment.  Our designs aim to create a real sense of place within their context.  Integrating our passion for contemporary, functional design, sustainable and organic practices, edible plants and carefully considered planting palettes to create landscapes that will thrive and endure.

Our Process outlines the stages of our residential design projects.  From our very first meeting with you through to the completion of your dream landscape we can guide you through the entire process.
