We have a team of qualified, friendly and experienced landscapers ready to build your dream garden, and can work with you to come up with a design solution that meets both your needs – and your dreams.
Our core services range from a simple refresh of an existing garden to the complete design and construction of a new garden landscape. We specialise in preparing gardens for presentation at pre-sale open days and inspections prior to auction, and can work with you to meet tight deadlines. We source high-quality healthy plants directly from growers, and our broad horticultural knowledge means we can balance our eye for design with what will actually grow and flourish in your garden.
“Pete McVerry and his team have transformed a much loved but “organic” rambling garden to a thing of beauty. At each stage during its transformation, I felt part of the process, as Pete communicated and sought agreement with his unfolding visions for the property. Many of the existing plants were retained or utilised in other areas of the garden and materials lying around waiting for a use were put to strategic effect. All these efforts ticked the box for me in terms of sustainability. The passionate and friendly team quickly became an important part of the landscape and now, rather than having a garden which has demanded my constant toiling, I am invited by it to wander the paths and to sit and absorb the beautiful surrounds. The grand old home which also sits within the garden has been revealed and significantly enhanced.”
“I wanted to work with Pete and his team after I saw a garden they had done around the corner from me. They had made all these lovely curving paths and flower beds and I could see that they were strongly design led, and really thought about how how the garden would look in relation to the architecture of the house. I had a very specific brief in that I wanted to develop a garden with Australian native plants. Pete immediately understood what I wanted and helped me to develop my ideas even further. It was a very collaborative and creative process and he gave me lots of good advice about what plants would work where, and how to achieve the colours and look that I wanted. The whole team were a pleasure to work with and extremely professional and knowledgeable. We came in on budget and we are thrilled with the result. It is no exaggeration to say that the team has created a magical space. We love it! ”
“In August this year we employed Pete McVerry and his wonderful band of helpers to completely re-landscape our front and back garden. We were not only pleased but absolutely delighted with the end result. Pete was so reliable and helpful that it was a joy to work with him. Nothing was too much trouble and he was so open to our suggestions and ideas. We would whole heartedly recommend Pete to anyone wishing to have a garden makeover.”
“I would happily recommend Pete Mcverry to any of my friends who are in need of an experienced and inspired Gardener. Pete has an absolute passion for garden design and has done an exceptional job on my garden. He is on budget, on time and very helpful. Most importantly he listens to the client and delivers. Pete stays within the parameters of your needs and wants. His knowledge is extensive and he is a delight to work with. I have already passed on his name to friends, as I have been impressed by his attitude and his prompt delivery of services. Pete leaves the garden in mint condition and cleans up as he goes. I have no hesitation in recommending his work.”
