how we work

For those who are interested in taking the next step with their garden project please feel free to contact us to see how we can help. We are always happy to have a chat about your garden.
We are a niche garden design and installation firm with a very client focused approach to the way we do things. It is important to us that we understand your needs thoroughly and that our designs involve a thoughtful understanding of how you would like to live in your new garden. For this reason we are happy to spend the time to listen to you in a complimentary initial client consultation.

Our initial consultation focuses on meeting you first
• Visiting your site and assessing your site plans
• Ascertaining your key design needs and concerns
• Developing an idea of what it is you love in a garden
• Discussing some initial design concepts
• Discussing the parameters of your budget

We take our clients right from the initial design phase through to the final installation of the garden, creating bespoke pieces including unique metal features and garden vessels which are tailored to fit every garden space and style.

In our gardens designs we love to use a selection of beautiful natural materials and hand-made textures and combine them to create outdoor spaces with a rich tapestry of natural colour, warmth and tranquility.

Having personally overseen the construction and renovation of over 25 houses in my previous incarnation as a designer-developer I grew to love the creation of beautiful outdoor spaces that flow naturally from the inner spaces of the home.

Through this experience I have become passionate about the creation of sustainable native and exotic gardens as well as food producing herb, fruit and vegetable gardens.

Our work has included projects as varied as the landscaping of a development of over 3000 square metres surrounding 8 new dwellings we created in Fremantle to a modest courtyard and decking area of 50 metres for a house our firm renovated in West Leederville. Given our breadth of experience we are capable of project managing and designing sustainable residential gardens of every shape and dimension.

Where do we work?
Our firm is based in Fremantle and services the surrounding areas extending out to the coastal areas of Swanbourne, North Fremantle, Mosman Park and Cottesloe and from East Fremantle and Melville through to Applecross and Mt Pleasant. We believe that focussing in on our local area gives us a more detailed knowledge of the species of coastal natives that thrive in these areas. Rather than having a one-size-fits-all mentality towards design we like to tailor our plant selection to the local.

Why do we choose to promote local native species?
One of our main goals is to create beautiful contemporary outdoor spaces using Western Australian native species as well as water hardy exotic plants. It is our firm belief that a water-wise garden need not only be sustainable but should also be inspiring.

Our Plant Selection
With careful species selection and the planting of correct pioneering plants it is possible to create very low water usage gardens. When planting a garden it is always important to consider the local conditions. And when doing so an interesting point of departure is an exploration of the indigenous species to the area. Our first inspiration for garden design is the natural environment itself. Growing up in Perth I was often struck by the beauty of the coastal heathlands surrounding City Beach, Swanbourne and Cottesloe, and also the ability of the native species to thrive in the harshest of environments with the poorest of soils.

It is easy to forget how beautiful our own species really are but we are reminded by the huge overseas interest in our local native species that there is something unique about Western Australian flora. You just need to look on HOUZZ to see the numerous examples of Australian plants that are coveted around the world for their unique shape, form and beauty.
