Portrait of Blair Edwards, Landscape Designer and business Director

Meet Blair Edwards
Director

Blair grew up in Portland in country Victoria, and from a very young age he loved nothing more than spending quality time with his own father, who was a builder by trade, helping him renovate their different homes.

Those formative years sparked a love of construction in Blair, so after completing his VCE he moved to Melbourne to study furniture design at RMIT, as well as Landscape Construction and Horticulture at Holmesglen. He then successfully completed an award-winning landscaping apprenticeship, before also completing a Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) to further his already valuable skills and knowledge.

Blair now has 20 years experience in landscape design and construction, and has showcased his skills at large landscaping firms both domestically and abroad to great acclaim.

He prides himself on his workmanship and quality, and has built an excellent reputation throughout the industry by completing projects for his clients of the highest standard consistently.

As Blair is a committed father of three young boys himself (who he hopes one day may follow in his footsteps), he knows the impact that a beautiful, harmonious and functional garden can have on someone’s life.

Not only can it finish the look of a home, but it can bring families and friends together, creating memories for years to come.

And he is looking forward to creating this for you.

Meet Natalie Edwards

When Natalie finished her VCE she completed a Bachelor of Business Management/Marketing at Monash University, before going on to work for many high profile businesses including NAB, Flight Centre, Sensis- Yellow Pages, Fairfax Digital and The Age.

In her late 20’s Natalie changed career paths to pursue her dream job as a Primary School Teacher.

Natalie also is a Co-founder to side hustle Cheeky Green, an indoor plant delivery business.
