4 landscaping construction services most effective for Sydney companies during the summer

12 Dec 2020

Summer in Sydney is one of the most beautiful times of the year. The sun shines brilliantly, the weather is fantastic and the views become even more impressive. For companies in Sydney, this is the prime time during the year to get landscaping works, particularly landscape construction works done. The only issue that companies face is figuring out what landscaping construction services are needed. The key to figuring out this is determining what is needed versus what is wanted has to do with your business’ budget, the nature of your business and of course, what is missing from your current landscaping.

Landscaping construction is a little different from soft landscaping in that it deals with more functional and technical elements of a landscape. For example, where soft landscaping might include turf laying, landscape construction will involve the construction of a pathway beside the turf. As it still is a form of construction, it’s easy to see why businesses wait until the summertime to get it done.

To guide businesses through their decision, we’ve identified four landscaping construction services that you should engage during the summer. For more personal advice, contact our landscaping construction team. They will gladly walk you through your needs and provide professional guidance.

4 landscaping civil construction services your Sydney company needs


Kerbing, while not often thought of with landscaping, can provide several functions for your business’ landscape. Aesthetically, kerbing provides a neat border for your turf or section of shrubs. While some businesses use stone kerbing, Civil and Scape provides concrete kerbing which is uniform and refined and presents a professional border for your landscaping.

Functionally, kerbing alongside a pavement or road on your commercial property guides cars and prevents them from driving onto access paths and pavements. Additionally, kerbs provide structural support to pavement edges and can be used to channel runoff water from rain into storm drains.

Timber decking

A timber deck is one of the best features for any Sydney business during the summer. However, timber decking is only suitable for specific businesses, mostly those in hospitality such as restaurants, bars and hotels. Though we recommend installing timber before the summer rush, it’s never too late to call Civil and Scape. A timber deck allows your customers and employees to enjoy the sun, beautiful weather and views during the summer. While a costly investment, it pays off by extending the number of customers your business can hold and by simply being a value-added feature that is sure to attract customers.

Outdoor sitting area

Similar to timber decking, an outdoor sitting area is a must-have during the summer. Again, this feature should be installed before summer hits, however,  constructing a sitting area at the beginning of summer gives your business enough summer and fall time to benefit from it. 

An outdoor sitting area in your business gives your employees a recreational area with fresh air, which ultimately helps them to feel more motivated and happier at work. For clients and customers, it is an attractive feature that signals them to stay longer at your business. Lastly, for restaurants, cafes and bars, it provides more space for customers. It is also seen as an attractive feature for prospective customers who may be more inclined to visit your business as a result.

Accessible access paths

Access paths such as ramps and staircases in businesses are integral for facilitating access for people of all abilities to your business. This makes it a key part of your business structure and as a result, should be one of the first civil construction features that you invest in. Ramps allow persons who use wheelchairs and parents with strollers to access your building while a staircase is important in case of a power outage.

We recommend that you secure your customer base and avoid excluding disabled persons and parents from your business by ensuring that your construct access ramps in your business.

We hope that our suggestions for civil construction services help you to determine what you need for your business. Every business is different and will require different features. If you’re unsure of what you need for your business, don’t hesitate to contact us.
