Designing landscapes is a collaborative process that begins with a blank canvas and lots of ideas, and evolves into a plan that can transform the people and the space. Each design blends the colours and textures from existing plants and trees with other architectural forms to fit with a property’s character. Landscapes and gardens are as individual as each of us. They are beautiful and personal expressions of who we are. Whether it’s a simple bed of shrubs and flowers that attracts birds and bees, or the latest architectural elements that create an elaborate outdoor living area, our work is always a reflection of how you’ll want to enjoy your home for years to come.

We are as comfortable working in the intimate setting of an inner suburban home as we are on an expansive suburban block or semi-rural hobby farm. The scope of Bobtail Landscaping’s services includes comprehensive landscape designs, installation and ongoing maintenance. Our company’s expertise includes design, earthworks, retaining walls, carpentry, pools, pergolas, brickwork, stonework,
irrigation, fencing and much more. This full service approach is offered to ensure the highest level of quality and long-term service to each of our clients.

Our goal as landscape designers and installers is to create beautiful projects, well designed, that exceed our customer’s expectations!
