Our Specialties:

Japanese GardensWe encourage you to relax in the peaceful and harmonious environment that our landscapers can inject into a Japanese style garden. We have extensive experience in building these sorts of gardens in the Melbourne area, so we know what works and what doesn't. Attention to detail is a must for these spaces, so our work will not disappoint. 

Balinese Gardens Would you like to embark on a tropical getaway without even leaving your own backyard? With a Balinese garden built by our landscaping specialists, this is entirely possible. We will help you choose exotic plants that will survive in even Melbourne's temperamental climate, as well as handle the construction of a Balinese hut or timber deck. 

Contemporary Gardens For a more modern outdoor space that can be used for entertaining on hot summer nights and relaxing on clear winter days, a contemporary garden put together by our landscapers will be perfect. We can create a stunning design that will complement modern architecture and incorporate other features, like an outdoor kitchen. 

Native Gardens We believe that a native garden provides the perfect basis on which to connect with nature and discover all of the plants that Australia has to offer. We will combine indigenous plants with other features, including dry creek beds, river rocks and even swimming pools. A native garden possesses a subdued beauty that we wish to exhibit.
