With 20 years experience in the landscape industry, Heather has a wealth of knowledge and projects under her belt. She has studied and taught horticulture and landscape design while running her own landscape design and construction business.
Heather is also the landscape consultant for The Sands Torquay having designed many of their open public spaces plus being part of The Sands Architectural Review Committee since it’s inception. She provides a wealth of knowledge whether it is design, planting, garden management, landscape construction, local council landscape requirements for commercial and residential developments and land care.
“I love taking a space and making it functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Aspects, architecture, climate, plant cultural requirements and of course budget play an important part in my design process whether I am designing for a commercial client or an individual. I try to be the conduit for clients to get what they want out of their landscape.
It is their backyard not mine.
Consultation is also a big part of my work with clients needing help with existing gardens, problem gardens, weed identification and plant management. One of my greatest quests is to encourage an awareness in the community to the menace of environmental weeds. As a responsible horticulturalist the need to tackle this immense problem head on is so important for our biodiversity”.
Narellan PoolsNarellan PoolsI have worked with Heather over the last 10 years on a number of projects- referring our clients to her when they need help with the design of their pools and surrounds. Heathers experience and great ideas put down on paper enable our clients to visualise what the end result will be in their backyard. Having a plan to work from makes the implementation of works easier for all the associated trades, making for a smooth running project. www.narellanpools.com.au

In this time Heather has provided landscape designs for our own homes, townhouse subdivisions requiring council approval and for our clients.

Heather communicates exceptionally well with clients and trades, ensuring outcomes reflect her designs and clients’ desires. Clients, including myself, have greater assets from Heather’s work.

Mary HannaWe moved to our property in Scotchmans Rd seven years ago. It was a daunting project to start a garden from scratch , especially when we were unfamiliar with the types of plants that would thrive on the Bellarine Peninsular. With Heathers guidance and skill we now have a beautiful established garden that is hardy through drought conditions , but perfectly compliments and blends with our stone house and the surrounding farm buildings. Our garden continues to thrive , and give us great pleasure, thanks to Heathers knowledge in the selection of suitable plants, and on going maintenance plan.
Susie HoevenaarsHeather has helped us with three of our gardens over the past 15 years. Our first property at Bellarine was a new build and a big blank canvas. We loved what Heather did for us there. Since then she has helped us renovate a large established garden in Newtown and at our most recent residence on Corio Bay where her landscape design is now implemented and looks fabulous.
