We deliver outstanding work where it counts  

While everyone loves a pretty plan, what good is it if a wonderful design doesn’ t translate properly to where it counts –on the ground? While we understand that preparing the design is a big part of the process, the true satisfaction comes from seeing it “come alive” on site - skilfully, methodically and accurately. The end results on site are where it matters most to our clients; hence in all areas of our services, our focus is on the end result - not solely based on just creating pretty plans... 


Lower Fees

We offer much lower consulting fees compared to traditional Landscape Architecture firms due to our low overheads and day-to-day efficiencies. 


We show a personal interest in your project

We take the time to listen to your briefing so that we understand your specific direction & requirements for your project to ensure you are satisfied with both ‘the journey and the destination’.


Get your Council approval faster

Our knowledge of specific Council requirements and proven success in lodging applications across Australia translates into obtaining faster approvals no matter where the site is located. We’ve fostered good relationships with Council assessment teams over the years to reduce approval times, minimise delays and ‘requests for information’ (RFI's) as well as post-approval design changes. 


We work just for you

Define has no commercial or vested interests with anyone except you. Our independence means we work solely for your benefit  and advocate your interests whilst adhering to the applicable laws and industry standards. 


Industry experience

Define has 20 years experience working on small & large projects in the commercial, retail, industrial, residential & retirement communities sectors. Our background extends across a majority of project types in both large & small scale, from the public and the private sectors. 


High quality designs & plans conveyed clearly

We produce thorough, accurate plans that are easy to read and understand by other consultants, authorities, contractors, and you. 


Diverse project experience

Having worked on projects in locations from Cairns to Hobart and from the Gold Coast over to Perth with varied topography and climates gives us a good appreciation for the broad conditions faced when working on unique sites. 


Professional affiliations & on-going training

Ensures we continue to produce modern, quality designs relevant to current standards and conditions through best practice.
