Apart from being a trade qualified Horticulturist, professional and honest, a hard worker who doesn't swear (even though he's a Scotsman!) and a really good bloke, Tom Dunlop will:
Show you how to win back leisure time
(reduce heavy garden maintenance);
Optimise views and reduce risk of infrastructure damage
(some trees are going to be much bigger than you think!);
Save you money
(make better use of your plant specimens or choose hardier alternatives).
Tom will help you create, update and maintain your garden to be a beautiful place to relax and enjoy with family and friends.
Tom is a trade qualified Horticulturist, having apprenticed and then worked as a gardener at the Royal Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands, Sydney.

Pruning the rose garden, to mowing the lawns of government house and later moving on to manage a team of horticulturists and turf maintenance workers at Centennial Parklands, Tom's passion for horticulture continued.
