A garden should be developed to compliment the surrounding environment and to enhance the architecture of the existing buildings. The garden needs to be lived in and enjoyed. Most importantly it has to meet the client’s requirements. 

Gardens can have many faces – it can be a place of tranquillity and peace, a place for entertaining and enjoyment but it also can be a place for adventure and learning.

We have completed projects of all sizes throughout the suburbs of Sydney as well as in Regional NSW and Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Over the last two years we have been working on a project in Up State New York.
