Designing some interesting gardens from a young age, Phil started his design through more art based development studying a Diploma in Arts at RMIT majoring in screen print design as he learned the art of making clothes. He was then drawn to the garden through Garden Maintenance and patches of Construction. During this time he was studying a Diploma in Landscape Design and Sustainability at Swinburne and started to form an edgy garden design sense.
Phil has grown to become a new breed of garden designer who has the benefit of youthful creative dare, exuberance and contemporary sensibility, as well as developing remarkable experience, designing multiple award winning show gardens both in Melbourne and Sydney and a growing portfolio of professional work along Australias east coast. Phillip is very versatile and playful in his design, his signature is to paint contemporary colour and form into his works with both architectural elements and a pure focus on fantastical plant selection.
