My Story

I grew up on farms and large horse properties. When I was a kid I loved building cubby houses out of bales of straw and hay as well as climbing around on my favourite large rock formations, climbing the biggest trees I could find and swimming in the dams.

As I grew older I remember fondly the trips to pick up recycled timbers in the old farm ute that had to be constantly topped up with water, so it didn’t overheat (including a stop for the best sandwich we have ever eaten) and watching my dad build the old horse stables/gates and round yards out of large recycled timbers and natural bush poles. And less fondly remember trying and failing to de nail thousands of hardwood beams for pocket money.

My dad was the kind that could line up a 200-meter fence line within 10mm by eye and had learned the tricks of the trade from years of working on farms where being a jack of all trades wasn’t an advantage but a necessity. Little did I know how much I would absorb both my parent’s work ethics and idealistic nature and that this would shape me and what I did for a living long after I thought I would have forgotten about it.

I love my job so much, not only because I love building ponds, stone and timber features, and seeing the satisfaction of clients, but because it reminds me of the great memories I have as a kid spending time with Dad and making my own adventures in the natural surroundings. It’s these things that I believe fuel my passion and drives me to constantly try to better myself and turn natural materials into amazing features that will do justice to my love for the materials and my memories that go along with them.
