High Quality. Stunning Design.

Landscape architect – Canberra. Specialising in creative garden design and unique outdoor furniture for the home or rural property.

Land Art is a small scale design firm with a focus on residential and rural landscape design. The main emphasis is on creative site specific design, encompassing both structural and soft landscape elements.


From friendly advice, to a master plan & ultimately being able to sit back and relax in a beautiful garden, I’m happy to help along the way. Designs for classical elegance or contemporary flair are all achievable.

Whether it’s an old garden in need of a makeover, with existing plants & structures to work around, or the clean slate of a new block. See exciting solutions for all sorts of spaces. Difficult sites, tight & narrow spaces, areas overlooked by neighbors, steep blocks, pools, shade options, large blocks & rural outlooks.

We can develop a plan that will not only show how the garden will look, but is clear & detailed, enabling the owner or landscape contractor alike, to construct from. The process begins with a detailed site survey, then progresses to concept plans & perspective sketches, construction cost estimates, & if required, amendments and the finalisation of a master plan. There is a strong focus on the structural landscape as well as a detailed planting scheme.

I’ll talk you through the advantages and disadvantages of different materials & construction methods, what will be best value for money, what might be a DIY option or where the right contractor or machine can come in handy. What works require approval, how to build a quality deck, cleverly design a pool area, how much material to order, find the right plant, and much more.

At the end of the day, our ultimate aim is the same, I’ll also wish to see, enjoy & be proud of your garden, now & into the future. Please browse the gallery for ideas and creative solutions and if you would be interested in a quote, please call or drop me an e-mail.

Based on our initial ideas, Paul provided us a design that was innovative, practical and value for money. He was very easy to work with, friendly and highly professional. We highly recommend him’.

'To say we are more then happy with the result is an understatement!...Paul considered every little detail and the end result is everything we hoped for and then some! We have no hesitation in recommending Paul to future clients'.

'We found Paul to be the perfect person to design our whole yard. Someone who at last listened to what we want to achieve…. When we were presented with the overall plan of what the whole garden would look like, we loved it. We could see what our “blank slate of a yard” would look like in the future. He discussed each section (with fantastic drawings) so we could visualise the end result.
