WHO ARE WE?
We are a fully licensed landscape design and construction firm based in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. We are a small but passionate and focused team of slightly garden-obsessed garden individuals. We’re all about Building a Beautiful Life Outside one home at a time. Based in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, we’re primarily focused on residential landscape design and construction in this area.
Founder, Andrew Sidie has over 20 years industry experience and Stone Lotus Landscapes was born out of Andrew's passion for conceptualising garden designs and a desire to oversee the entire outdoor transformation from initial design concept through to constructed completion. Over time Andrew has built a small and trusted outdoor renovation team of landscape designers, horticulturists, landscapers, project managers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and pool specialists to name a few. Stone Lotus Landscapes has since evolved into one the most prominent turnkey residential landscape design and construction firms in the area.

WHAT WE OFFER
So if you’re looking to get the ball rolling on your garden makeover or outdoor renovation, here is how we work in a nutshell; a site visit, design, construction, styling, and maintenance.
If you have an idea for your landscape design in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, our solid planning and design expertise can help turn your vision into reality.
We start with grabbing a few brief project details on what you’re looking for and we book in an initial site visit. At the site visit, we can discuss your ideas and further requirements and check out the space, looking at things like light, access, and the wider context of the garden.
Following the site visit, we can give you a lump sum quote for the landscape design. We have a few different design packages and we will recommend one that’s most suited to your landscape project. Once you give us the go-ahead this is where the fun really begins. Here, we really start to flesh out your design brief. We will prepare and present a draft design and proposed finishes and materials and we collaborate with you to finalise the design. At this point with the help of our plans and 3D renders you should be able to really visualise your new outdoor space. You may even start to imagine just how you and your family are going to enjoy the space or think about hosting your next outdoor event.
Once happy with the design we will provide you with a detailed and itemised quotation for the landscaping works. Sometimes this may necessitate a few more design tweaks. But once we have the design and pricing settled, it’s our Construction team's time to shine.
The transition from landscape design to construction phase can sometimes be a tricky or disjointed one when not all done in-house by the one company. We pride ourselves on making this transition smooth and efficient with everyone being briefed and on the same page from the beginning. We ensure our projects are built to the highest quality using qualified, skilled and experienced tradesmen to complete the project.
Whilst construction is underway, we’d love to provide some assistance with garden styling and can give you some recommendations for items such as furniture and additional pots and planters etc. With over 20 years industry experience we have worked with and collaborated with some great suppliers and would love to put some options forward.
Want to ensure your new garden establishes quickly and thrives? Strapped for time and after a fuss-free garden? We can also recommend and quote a suitable ongoing garden maintenance program. Our experienced horticulturists and landscapers will ensure your greenery game is strong and that you reap the rewards of your initial investment in the garden.
Now, at this point, there isn’t much left to do other than to invite your friends around for that barbeque!
LANDSCAPING DESIGN SYDNEY
We love transforming unutilised spaces into integral parts of our client’s home. This new space could be many things. It could be a second living space, a hub of daily family life. Sometimes it’s a space equipped for hosting friends and social events. It could be a place for the dog or kids to run around in. Maybe it’s a quiet chill-out space, a garden sanctuary to connect with the outdoors. Sometimes it’s about creating a backdrop or outlook from interior vantage points to soften and balance the interiors. Often, it is a bit of ‘all of the above.'
Improving and maximising our client’s homes is great from a property market perspective. Especially being based in Sydney’s eastern suburbs where block sizes can be smaller and utilising every inch is important. But for us, one of the most rewarding aspects is changing how our clients live and thrive within their homes. We love creating gardens and outdoor spaces that become so central to our client’s lifestyle that they can’t imagine how they ever did without it.
Our focus on garden design and landscaping around Sydney’s eastern suburbs, means we have been able to familiarise ourselves with a handful of councils allowing us to specialise in their development processes and requirements.
