What services does your business offer?  Custom one-off artistic garden creations.

What areas do your clients come from?  Mainly acreage areas around the northern suburbs.

What was your company’s first job?  Re-potting some half-dead orchids.

How did you make your first dollar?  Cleaning out old houses.

How did you get into your current line of work?  I simply got more work and enquiry than my day job, so it was fairly easy decision and adaption.

Why is a business like yours so important?  My business I believe can offer something completely different than anything around the neighbourhood, being artistic designs from concept to creation, tailoring people’s budgets and time frames.

What is the most unique job your business has done?  I would have to say it would be a tie between a circular stone wall and seat/firepit, and a large waterfall.

What do your customers most appreciate about your services?  Being able to be direct and clear in

what we offer and above all very satisfied.

What is the best part of your job?  Standing back and staring at our creations and watering in the plants and turf (nice and easy).

What advice would you give to anyone considering working in your line of work?  Be prepared to work hard, like lots of mud and rain, and keep focused.

If you didn’t work in your current job, what job would you like to do?  Visual artist.

How do you spend your spare time?  Playing with my kids and trying not do any landscaping.
