The Landscape Team

If your garden is unhealthy, unloved, tired or in need of rejuvenation or a fresh new look we have the solution to your garden problems and can bring the WOW factor back.
From the smallest courtyard to acreage, our team love a challenge. It is a privilege to have a  garden entrusted to our care and we work very closely with our clients to bring them the desired result. I especially love the excited looks and the enthusiastic texts we receive after finishing a days work.  I am fortunate to have a passionate team who make every effort to please the client and we have learned that every garden comes with surprises, so it is paramount to brainstorm and overcome these challenges. Over the years I have worked on many voluntary projects, one of which received three conservation awards and a nomination for a Civic Award. In 2012, I gifted the redevelopment and care of the oncology garden at Pindara hospital, until it was removed to make way for the construction of their new wing.

I derive immense satisfaction from the joy our work brings to our clientsand look forward to helping you with your garden make over and taking something ordinary to extra WOW.
