It is a creative, dynamic, Landscape Design practice, specializing in creating unique, exclusive landscapes, custom designed for each client’s needs - large or small.


Young Landscape Design Studio was born out of the need in the market for highly skilled, Professional, Landscape Design and installation services.


Our aim is to create beautifully simple, seamlessly functional and most importantly unique, outdoor spaces.


Each garden is designed to reflect our client’s individual characters and needs, and above all is aimed at lifestyle enhancement through good, thoughtful design.


The secret ingredient to which we respond is designing, beautiful, peaceful, functional, low maintenance outdoor spaces, for today’s city dwellers.


We create water wise, ecologically friendly, sustainable gardens, which are in harmony with nature


Our unique formula is to give the client the option to install their own “landscaped garden” or alternatively have their design professionally installed through the YLD team.
