We recently engaged David to design and construct our front and back courtyards of our townhouse in North Fitzroy. He listened to our needs and provided us with an excellent design plan and quote. David completed the job on time and within budget. It exceeded our expectations and is a highlight of our renovated townhouse. Both courtyards are spectacular at night. We have no hesitation in recommending his high quality services.

Thank you Jana & Chris.
I am pleased you are enjoying your new garden.

Amazing Result

We recently decided to prepare our home for sale and were recommended to Spencer Garden design. David was excellent with his ideas and his plant selection was spot on. What an amazing transformation. I would highly recommend David to anyone and would happily use his services on our next project.
Well done!

Fantastic result!

David redesigned and rebuilt our backyard in Northcote during October/ November. From the first consultation to the last day he was most professional in all he (and his team) did. His great strengths were: listening to what we wanted, being open to feedback and requests, offering alternative solutions, meticulous attention to detail; great communication skills and completing the project in a timely manner. We love the big veggie patch and screens he constructed and the watering and lighting systems are working very well. David is highly professional and we would recommend him to anyone requiring a creative and high quality outcome. Thanks David!

Sensational Transformation

David did a sensational job transforming our front garden; it’s radically improved the street appeal of our house. All of his work was very precise, he did what he said he would and solved all of the little surprises that were discovered along the way.

Amazing Transformation

David has done an amazing job landscaping my backyard. Every night I like to come home an go straight out the back to admire the work.

David is hard working and full of great ideas. All work was done with minimal fuss, and he is always considerate in regards to neighbours. Could not be happier with the work David and his team have done.

Thanks again David!

Excellent design, honest and hardworking

We had David and team landscape our backyard to create a child friendly, lush space with mostly natives and fruit. We also wanted to 'soften' the utilitarian look of our carport next to the garden. David nailed the brief, was flexible to work within our budget and timelines. David had many good suggestions, he sent us a list of key natives and was very efficient and hardworking with execution.

We were so pleased with the quality garden we got David to spruce up our front yard, add plants to our deck and adapt our verandah/vine. Highly recommend!

Great understanding of our needs

After trying for 6-7 years ourselves to design and grow a native area in our garden, we invested in bringing David on board... and wow what a difference that has made for the garden.
He thinks outside the box and presents it in a manner that we understand and can embrace. working transparently with the costs and within our budget he was a joy to work with and i would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David for any project, large or small.

Lovely work

David understood perfectly what I was looking for! He redisgned my front and back yard, which are very small spaces. But now, it looks more generous, and more usuable for lounging. David was listening to my needs and made perfect beautiful design around it. The work was done very professional, and the work space was left prestine. I am over the moon with my new garden!

I highly recommend David. He is a dedicated hard worker, totally reliable. He has great ideas but is adaptable if you change your mind or need to work around an issue. He is a good communicator and works to your budget. Our garden brings me delight every day. I will never attempt to manage my own garden design again!!

Outstanding Work

I cannot recommend Spender Garden Design and Horticultural Services more highly.

We recently had a pool installed and needed our backyard landscaped. David's beautiful innovative design ideas and plant selections were amazing. He took into consideration our requirements for a family and pet friendly space and worked with us to provide a garden that was bespoke and within our budget. He solved several problems that had been concerning us including an unsightly shed and a privacy issue. His reliability and work ethic was second to none.

Thanks to David we now have a garden that I am immensely proud of. It's beautiful, perfectly suits our lifestyle, and just as importantly, is easy to maintain.

Our front garden was bland. We wanted someone to re invigorate our garden and give it a contemporary appearance and yet one that would complement our 1920’s home. We were recommended to David Spencer of “Spencer Garden Design and Horticultural Services.”

Within a couple of days our garden was transformed. Our garden had a mixture of colours, and layers of exotic and traditional plants. Every person who walked past our house, stopped to admire our garden.

“Spencer Garden Design and Horticultural Services” then moved to our back yard and designed a garden with different zones adding an outdoor dining oasis, surrounded by sub-tropical plants….it was heaven to sit in a beautiful garden and drink a good wine. We recently had to down size and sold our place. The attraction for all interested buyers was the garden and the extra value we achieved when we sold was substantially due to our stunning garden.

David Spencer is very creative and works quickly and efficiently. We can without hesitation highly recommend David and “Spencer Garden Design and Horticultural Services” to anyone who wants that special garden.

“We have a half acre garden in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne and Spencer Garden Design and Horticultural Services have helped me over the last 5+ years to make it a beautiful oasis. David listens carefully, is creative and reliable. While it is still “my garden”, his support makes it manageable and a pleasure. I would recommend Spencer Garden Design and Horticultural Services to anyone who wants to create or maintain a beautiful garden.

David our Garden Guru

It has been our good fortune and absolute pleasure to engage David from Spencer Garden Design & Horticultral Services to design and maintain our much loved garden. We have been extremely happy with all aspects of his
work and his ideas and advice have been invaluable. David`s ideas and knowledge of plants, shrubs and trees is extensive and he continues to offer knowledgable advice in the ongoing maintenance and development of the garden.

We have met very few people with Davidís work ethic of hard work and integrity which always gives us peace of mind.

All those who visit the garden without fail make comment of its design and beauty.

Words cannot describe the pleasure the garden has and continues to give us, and we thank David every moment we are in his beautiful creation.
