About the practicE

Dan Young Landscape Architect is a Brisbane based practice undertaking predominantly small scale projects in South East Queensland and Northern NSW. We are interested in the temporal and durational qualities of landscape - in particular how plants & planting design interact with architectural form to augment the spatial experience. We also undertake broad scale work such as site planning & concept development, along with strategic & master planning.  

Fees vary depending upon the scope of the project and the level of detail required – please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
