Eight years ago I was in my seventh year as an I.T support analyst and I decided I'd had enough and wanted to do something else. I'd always had an interest in plants and decided to try my hand as a professional gardener. I've since worked in retail nurseries on Mount Macedon, production indigenous nurseries in Wildwood and worked four years as a gardener at International House (a residential college of Melbourne University. I now renovate and maintain residential gardens in Melbourne and the Macedon Ranges.
I have a Certificate 3 in horticulture parks and gardens, an agricultural chemical users permit and are currently completing a degree in horticulture at Melbourne University's Burnley campus. My insurance covers me for $10,000 of damage to third party property.
I believe a garden should be therapeutic, sustainable and simply a place you find pleasurable. I place emphasis on plant material over hard landscaping elements.
Sometimes it's hard to find time to maintain your garden. I've been gardening in the Macedon Ranges, Sunbury and inner Melbourne for years. Whether it's a big clean up or a small task I can help out.
Had enough of your garden and want an overhaul or renovation? I can clean up the yard, remove unwanted vegetation and help in changing your outdoor space into something you enjoy.
My family has been involved in the timber business for years. My father taught me the ins and outs of timber selection. I can build you beautiful raised beds from hardwoods less commonly found in most gardens.
Most of us love a but of turf but most of us do not love mowing it. I can mow and edge your lawn freeing up some time for you to enjoy your weekend.

I've lived in the Macedon Ranges for 10 years and know how the local conditions and climate effects plants differently than in Melbourne. My favourite areas to work in are Macedon, Mt Macedon, Gisborne and Woodend.
Nice and close to home. I love working in Sunbury on small and large scale residential gardens.
I can travel to Melbourne to help out with your garden. I'm currently not working out east or south without a travel expense surcharge unless you are around Preston / Northcote / Heidelberg where I have some regular jobs.
I love working on the small scale residential gardens in Brunswick and team up with fellow designer / artist Annabel Nowlan for most projects in this area.
