Face Lift Landscapes specialise in bringing new life to your home.
Face Lift Landscapes is a family owned company operating between Brisbane’s North side and the Southern end of the sunshine coast including the Moreton Bay region and the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Our staff have been creating beautiful landscape gardens for 12 years.
Whether it be a revamp of your existing outdoor areas or starting with a blank canvas at you’re brand new residence, we are specialists in the implementation of bringing creative thinking to life. We liaise with our clients through the design phase of each project in order to blend our own suggestions and advice with the ideas and ambitions of our clients. Our focus is to provide a tailored landscape garden that meets your family’s needs and what you are looking for from you’re outdoor living space. Budget restraints and “special features” are all considered when formulating our design so we can provide a realistically priced package which will hold quality and integrity for years to come.
The trap with most new landscapes is they look great when the project is finished, only to begin a gradual decline as time goes by. We emphasise the use of quality materials and construction methods which usually includes treating existing onsite soils with various soil amendments to ensure lush plant growth and an ever improving landscape due to healthy happy plants and turf. Each new client is presented with a design plan, planting plan and landscape specification so you are aware of exactly what you will be receiving for your investment.
The initial consultation is to determine the requirements and budget of our clients. It is at this early stage of each project where our expertise and experience along with the clients own vision sets the platform for what will become a spectacular outdoor space. Budgets are discussed in order to set the boundaries for the design phase.
The design phase is where we fuse the client’s vision with the ideas and suggestions we have discussed at the initial consultation. Preliminary plans are produced for further discussion and budget calculations. The design / budget calculation process often involves multiple revisions in order to ensure that our client’s expectations and budget are met.
Final documentation involves the production of a scope of works and specification based on the final design.
The final stage in our process is of course construction. This is where the magic becomes a reality and day by day you can see your vision come to life. Face Lift landscapes are BSA licensed with qualified staff and a strong focus on safety. The construction phase of each project is carefully planned with attention being paid to source quality materials and follow best practice for all construction works.
Face lift Landscapes were recently engaged by a Clayfield client to provide a landscape solution for the front of their property. Stage one of the works was to dismantle and replace their timber fence.
The corresponding picture shows us mid way through the construction of our clients new post and rail slatted fence, using dressed pine timber. Careful attention is paid to precise cuts enabling perfectly butted joints. All cuts are primed and sealed prior to installation, to ensure the end grains don’t soak up water causing dry rot.
The completion of the fence forming stage one of the project. Gardens a new driveway, internal retaining walls, a water feature and paved pathways will complete the overall project.
