Outside the square.

A beautiful garden adds real value to your property and immeasurable value to your lifestyle. At Outside garden design, we think outside the square to create a garden that works for you and your unique location.

We specialise in larger lots and acreage landscaping and are available to simply offer advice and recommendations in relation to plant selections, materials and drainage, or we can plan and create your complete garden from consultation and design through to installation and on-going maintenance.

Garden Design

We create worldly but down to earth gardens that maximise your site, manage conditions and create a beautiful extension of your home.

Every garden design is individual, taking into account your location, aspect, soil and personal preferences. Precise to-scale drawings will give you a clear understanding of what is envisaged for your garden and will also give you an opportunity to have your own input or make changes before work begins.   Learn more

Hard Landscaping

This is the bones of any garden design and can literally transform a space. Through careful planning you can turn challenging, sloping blocks into useable gardens whilst minimising erosion and maximising the capture of rainwater to benefit the garden. Hard landscaping can also give a garden substance and a sense of place, or add another ‘room’ to your home. Ideally, hard landscaping should be considered early in the process but it is never too late make improvements.   Learn more

Sabina Menzi garden landscaping

Hi, I’m Sabina Menzi, owner of Outside garden design. My professional background of drafting and engineering supports the garden design process every step of the way and enables me to provide considered, detailed solutions ensuring everyone involved shares the same vision for your garden and can see it become a reality. My passion for plants has been an ongoing journey since childhood. To this day, I nurture this interest with continual further education and, of course, getting my hands dirty out on site.

I am very conscious of the fact that I am designing a garden for you (not me). I am genuinely guided by you and what you would like to achieve in your outside space. It’s important for me to listen and understand what you are looking for so that I can deliver a space that meets and hopefully exceeds your expectations.

I am committed to providing a personal and professional service and will be your point of contact throughout the entire process including following up on completion.


We are lucky to be based in a spectacular part of the world, servicing Brisbane’s north-west from the beautiful Samford Valley through to Dayboro and Ocean View, and as far north as Woodford.
