The roots of All Green can be traced all the way back to 1979 in the backyard of Sam and Gianna Fragapane. They began a fledgling nursery out of a garden shed, which eventually grew to encompass 2 hectares. For 40 years, this family business has flourished, providing the local community with lush plant life, landscaping and gardening supplies, and unparalleled service.

Devised in 1947, the clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technological advances. Initially the clock was set to 7 minutes to midnight, it is now set to 100 seconds to midnight. This garden installation is a representation of the clock and our passage through time.
It really gives me great pleasure to transform a client’s garden. This is a hectic world for most of us and the need of a sanctuary is vital to a sense of well-being. That sanctuary is your garden.
I remember when I first started out in garden maintenance, I had a client who was around 75 years old who wanted her lawn mowed. Mrs Heidermann had a walking frame and so rarely ventured much beyond her front gate. One day I suggested this vast boring lawn could do with a garden bed near the front door. I gave her a quotation and she accepted!
I had free reign to select plants I thought would work and so I bought around 30 plants. Her reaction was so touching, she was in awe of her new garden and absolutely loved it. And so, every month I would remove sections of lawn and add more plants. She would walk out daily to inspect what was in flower. One day she said to me the kindest remark,
“Andrew, you have given me reason to walk every day to look at my wonderful garden and I believe you have added years to my life”.
What do you say to that?! That is the power of a beautifully considered garden landscape.

"We believe in working with you and your ideas to create an outdoor space that reflects your personality. Our gardens bring a sense of order and calm that is both functional and aesthetic." Andrew Whyte - Founder, Whyte Gardens
Andrew Whyte and the team from Whyte Gardens have over 20 years experience creating gardens that people love to live in. Specialising in contemporary spaces, they help bring outdoor spaces to life, whether it’s for entertaining, relaxing with family or just a quiet contemplative corner.
"We believe that the devil is in the detail. Designing and constructing a garden is a huge task. Yet it’s all the little things that will ultimately make it work or not. It starts with ensuring the design meets your brief and will work on the site. It’s then about choosing the correct materials and proper plants, right from the start. It includes knowing how to work with all the necessary suppliers, understanding what they need from us and what we need from them to ensure a seamless construction experience. It’s about selecting the right ﬁnishes, construction methods and materials to ensure all elements of your garden last for decades. It’s about knowing and understanding how all the elements of the design will ﬁt together. This only comes from years of hard-won experience. Finally it’s about the details in the design that will make everything come together in one harmonious, integrated masterpiece, you can call your garden."
