A brief background
Since starting his landscape design business, John was heavily influenced by the native gardens of Ellis Stones. We now design Japanese, Balinese, French provincial and all other styles of gardens, depending on our client’s requirements.
With the recent water shortages and the fantastic range of native plants available, we still encourage clients to have sustainable gardens with low water requirements. We can create the right lawn which will not only survive the dry summer periods but also can tolerate shade and neighbouring established trees. We still design other styles of gardens, but clients seem to be wanting the native aspect more and more.
Whatever style of garden, every project gets the creative treatment which has resulted in several features in House & Garden and articles in the local press.
We work with other established landscapers who are hand-picked for their quality work and relationship with clients, so that the whole thing is an enjoyable experience for our clients, as well as the landscapers and us.
