About Terrain Group


Throughout Terrain Group’s four decade history, we have focused on developing and maintaining leisure and recreational facilities for our clients, that reflect outstanding value as well as distinctive environmental design.

Optimal use of open space is widely recognised as of significant value across our communities, and this is where Terrain Group excels, thanks to our understanding of the demands we, as a society, place on our outdoor facilities.

Terrain Group provides a complete service to our clients, from planning and design, to project management, supply and installation. Our clients choose Terrain Group because we have the ability to take their ideas and bring them to life, all under one roof.


As with any business, we at Terrain Group recognise it is the sum of the parts that make a great business. As such, we know that it’s our great people and their passion for what they do, that has made Terrain Group such a trusted name in the industry.

The family business began as Terrain Services over forty years ago in 1976, when Steve Selby’s background in civil design and his passion for the outdoors lead him to begin designing open space solutions that were appealing, but also user friendly and accessible to everyone.

Branching into irrigation in the 1980s, and then into open space furniture in the late 90s, the business had grown to include Steve and Marg’s children, Chester and Scott. Soon after, Cindy joined Terrain Services in the accounts department, followed by Bevis in Sales and by 2003, Jayne had come on board in Customer Service.

Today, as a family business, Terrain remains approachable and dependable, while our systems driven culture has helped us grow to become a National company with a strong history of impressive work.


Today, Terrain Group has grown to cover three main areas in open space solutions.

Terrain Elements

Brings together outdoor furniture, shelters, bollards, fountains, bins and other amenities to offer usable, stylish and reliable solutions to fitting out any open space.
