Phillip Johnson Landscapes does not just build gardens - we build sustainable habitats. Each of our designs helps to rebuild the earth in a way that ensures it will continue to heal itself long after our highly qualified team has finished their work.
I’m committed to greening our cities and addressing water management through innovative and flexible sustainable landscape design. My design philosophy centres on recreating habitat and accommodating changing environmental extremes. Nature has enthralled and inspired me since I was a child, and I hope my work re-engages people with the power and joy nature brings.
Our mandate is to create functional and sustainable landscapes and natural pools (chemical free) that will last for generations to come and celebrate Australia’s enviable natural beauty in ways that are culturally relevant within urban contexts.
With a strong philosophy of sustainable design, we create socially engaging and productive urban spaces that are habitats to many.
Since our inception over 20 years ago, we’ve led the way in sustainable landscape design, working to exceed the demands of increasing water restrictions and climatic changes.
In 2010, we were recognised as pioneers of sustainability in the residential sector and nominated as a finalist in the Premier’s Sustainability Awards in Victoria.
Working alongside some of Australia’s leading developers, architects, and government departments, Phillip Johnson Landscapes has been ‘recreating habitats’ for many years.
With the publication of his first book, ‘Connected: The Sustainable Landscapes of Phillip Johnson’, Phillip’s philosophy can be shared with more people than ever before.
Phillip Johnson Landscapes has created a number of successful show gardens around the world. Creating show gardens is about educating people and spreading our philosophy of getting connected with nature even further.
Our mandate is to create functional and sustainable landscapes and natural swimming pools that will last for generations to come and celebrate Australia’s enviable natural beauty in ways that are culturally relevant within urban contexts.
Phillip Johnson: ''Nature has enthralled, inspired & energised me my whole life. Our clients tell us stories about their children & grandchildren excitedly exploring our landscapes – from jumping along granite stepping stones across billabongs, to staging veggie growing competitions. At Phillip Johnson Landscapes, we're working to inspire change & a renewed appreciation for all the joy nature brings.'
