The garden is stunning. Nathan Burkett absolutely nailed the brief, and we now have beautiful silver birches, gardenias, amazing natural ivy, lavenders and hydrangeas, as well as a huge jacaranda tree and a feature red coral tree. “I’m a massive green thumb, so I just love being in the garden."

As a fellow creative who has worked alongside Nathan and his team, I wanted to share a review that is from the same side of the fence so to speak. We work with many consultants and creatives, and have found Nathan's designs to be beautiful not only at a conceptual level, but translate so beautifully in the real world. We know we are onto a good thing when we get to furnish a house with a Nathan Burkett garden."

We have engaged Nathan and the team for landscaping design in our premium hospitality spaces at the Australian Open for several years. Their commitment, coupled with ability to source unique plants, sets them apart. They’re an integral part of our team; they understand our objectives and always relish bringing to life the vision of each space."

With each project, we seek to enhance the useability of space. It’s not only about creating an aesthetically stunning design, but an experience our clients will savour for years to come.

Landscape Design Process

We treat every project as an individual, bespoke design that carefully considers the client’s site, any built form on the site, our client’s personality, and their lifestyle. Our landscape design process follows four distinct phases: consultation, concept design, design development, and construction documentation. Nathan Burkett will attend the initial consultation to scope out the site and offer his recommendations.

From there, the team will prepare a project brief and create a concept design complete with 3D visualisation. Once the concept is approved, the landscape design is further refined before preparing and issuing the required construction documentation. Learn more.

NBLA is active on Instagram providing regular garden inspiration, from 3D renders of our latest design concepts to professional photography of our completed works. Visit our channel to see the latest from our design studio.
