We work alongside some of Melbourne’s best architects, landscape architects and developers to develop and consult on cutting edge, considered and beautifully designed landscape architecture, attracting high profile clients and award winning projects.
Working at the forefront of Green Infrastructure in Australia, we continue to revolutionise urban and built environments with the unapologetic ambition to transform and enhance the lives of those who occupy them. We work closely with education, health, community, commercial and residential clients to tailor landscapes that maximise benefits for their specific needs and objectives.
We challenge perceptions that green infrastructure can only be used in large scale commercial developments big picture and installations by also delivering sustainable and beautiful solutions within even small scale sites.
Our commitment to staying ahead of international industry innovations, specifically through strong collaborations in Singapore and throughout South East Asia, allows us to utilise the most efficient and innovative technologies within our landscape designs.
Whatever the scale, the context or the vision for the design – we bring expertise, experience, passion and vision to even the most unexpected places.

Award winning project details:
The benefits of Green Walls which are being installed inside buildings, homes and even classrooms in urban environments have been well documented in recent years. There is significant proof that Green Walls can also have a positive impact on children’s mental health, especially those within secondary schools.
We have partnered with Catholic Regional College over the past 5 years incorporating green spaces in and around the campus. The recent design and development of a new Study Hall features a green wall which is the building that year 11 and 12 students sit their exams in. This was a deliberate design feature to ensure the students’ physical testing environment was optimised for the best outcomes. The wall is 50m2 in size, incorporates 1200 plants covering 12 different species.
