Shape and Form first started transforming outdoor spaces in Melbourne 2005, with the vision to bring designs to life, and create outdoor areas that delight, surprise and make people feel a connection with their space. 

Now with a team of 18 ranging from landscapers, labourers, apprentices, landscape designers and administration staff, you'll quickly notice the respect, kindness and drive amongst each and every member of Shape and Form. 

Offering both landscape design, concrete pool design and construction, we have the ability to implement the whole process from start to completion, removing the to-and-fro between multiple contractors.

Our projects throughout Sydney, Melbourne and Regional Victoria range in scale from the most modest of courtyard makeovers to the most ambitious of master plans. We pride ourselves in our customer service, attention to detail and high-quality service from concept, all the way through to completion.

Landscaping options are endless and really only limited by your imagination. With a vast range of traditional materials such as natural rock, stone and timber available, coupled with contemporary versions of water features, lighting and plant species, we believe there is no limit to what can be achieved in your outdoor space. 

Scott Bartho



Scott first started his journey in Landscaping as a young high school student. Determined, he approached a landscaping company who were at the time working at his family home, asking if they would allow him the opportunity to complete an apprenticeship with them. To Scott's delight, they said yes.


Fast forward 20+ years and here you will find Scott leading his own successful landscape design and construction business, servicing both Sydney, Melbourne and Regional Victoria. 


A family man, with a great deal of experience in the landscaping field and a sincere passion for attention to detail, you will notice how delightfully infectious Scott's focus is, when it comes to delivering outstanding results for each of his clients.
