Landscape & Pool Design

Our design work has been multi-award winning since its inception in 2009. In large part, that is because at Formation, we love what we do.

Design and connection are two of Formation’s core values. When we design your dream space or pool, we think first about the human beings who live within that design. We ask: How can you live better? How can you connect better?

Maximised by Design

Every Formation landscape and pool is masterfully designed to enhance your home’s potential, and to allow your family to connect more meaningfully. The execution of each project is a testament to the synergy between client vision, our in-house designers and our expert team.

Our process for designing beautiful, award-winning pools & landscapes


Armed with his wealth of experience and unique perspective, Chris will arrange an on-site meeting to brainstorm ideas and collect essential information for your design brief.. Throughout the consultation, our team thoroughly examines the practical and aesthetic requirements of your outdoor space, considering lifestyle preferences, functionality, and budget expectations.

A design proposal will then be developed and sent to you detailing next steps. To complete the concept design, we may need plans and surveys from you, your architects or builders. We liaise directly with third parties, to make it effortless for you.

Concept Design

Once you accept the proposal, our work on the concept will begin. When your concept design is finished it is delivered via a basic 2D plan and 3D render. You can also select an optional 3D walkthrough of the finished space, which allows you to see the design by daylight and evening light. It gives you the opportunity for clarification, expansion or further exploratory work. 

A preliminary costing for the installation of your space can also be provided at this stage.

Design Development

After you confirm the concept, the specification and construction details are prepared and presented alongside working drawings, for your approval. All construction elements such as pools, decks, pergolas and outdoor kitchens are documented with detailed drawings and specifications. Lighting, planting and finishing schedules are comprehensively outlined.

All necessary documentation is finalised and submitted to the relevant authorities and councils.

Detailed Costing

Once the design stage is complete, we provide a final quote and prepare the contracts for signing. Once signed, you’ll have the peace of mind that the fixed-price contract is only subject to variations based on changes you choose to make throughout the build.

See the potential of your home in 3D

To ensure you have a precise image of the design, we offer a 3D render and 3D walkthrough of the finished space. This experience of the space by daylight and evening light offers an opportunity for clarification, expansion or further exploratory work. A preliminary costing for the installation of your dream space can also be provided at this stage.
