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.

Now, working alongside some of Australia’s leading developers, architects and government departments, Phillip Johnson Landscapes has been ‘recreating habitats’ for more than 20 years. In 2015, our focus areas are on the creation of beautiful habitats that allow families to get connected back to nature.

With the recent publication of his first book, ‘Connected: The Sustainable Landscapes of Phillip Johnson’, Phillip’s philosophy can be shared with more people than ever before, through design and construction projects as well as speaking events and garden tours.

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. At the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, we have successfully won the Ford Sustainability Award for three out of four years, as well as multiple Gold, and a Best in Show in 2009. 2013 saw us represent Australia at the centenary of the world’s most prestigious horticultural event – the Chelsea International Flower Show. Here, we made history, winning ‘Best in Show’, and a gold medal for The Trailfinders Australian Garden- the first time this had ever been done for Australia. We also won a ‘Best in Show - International Design’ at the China Flower show in Wujin, China, in the same year.

Our mandate is to create functional and sustainable landscapes and natural (chemical free) pools that will last for generations to come and celebrate Australia’s enviable natural beauty in ways that are culturally relevant within urban contexts.
