OUR PHILOSOPHY

The exterior of a home should be as stylish and welcoming as the interior | Good design can express a client’s personality seamlessly throughout a home, inside and out | Through design we can bring life force and revitalising energy to any space | A garden is a living, interactive and evolving thing, it’s not a static installation | Garden’s are therapeutic places of sanctuary and healing – they help restore you | Having a beautiful exterior space is like having your own private spa resort at home.

Adam Robinson

Creative Director

Adam is a master of urban gardening with a passion for working with all types of outdoor spaces, including balconies, verandahs, patios, courtyards, all sizes of backyards, and even improving kerbside appeal and entrance ways to the home.

He relishes the challenge of coming up with clever, innovative design solutions, styling and plant palette ideas to really maximise any metropolitan outdoor space. Adam delights in creating designs that amplify and intensify the lifestyle aspects the space can provide its owners/users. Adam loves to create concise, compact and luxuriously comfortable oases that not only look beautiful and offer their owners a relaxing sanctuary, they are highly functional and often extroverted spaces that really welcome social gatherings, entertaining and fun!

 
 

Josh Yaqub

Landscape Designer & Stylist

In 2012, Josh left a 10 year career as an Advertising Executive, to follow his passion for beautiful gardens and plants. He moved from Brisbane to Sydney to complete the Landscape Design Diploma at the Ryde School of Horticulture and has never looked back.

By the end of 2012, Josh landed a job at Boutique Retail Nursery Garden Life. His time at Garden Life helped cement his love of the Landscaping Industry and exposed him to invaluable plant and design knowledge. It also introduced him to many of his heroes of the industry, including Adam.

In 2014, Josh joined Adam in a part time capacity, splitting his time between Adam Robinson Design, Garden Life and the completion of his Diploma. By 2015, Josh had completed his Diploma and joined Adam in a full time capacity.

While working with Adam, Josh combines the client services skills he developed in his previous career, with the ongoing knowledge constantly learned on a daily basis working in and on ARD’s garden design projects.

Having studied Landscape Design in Adelaide, Chanelle relocated to Sydney to pursue her career in design and surround herself with like-minded creative designers.

Growing up in Adelaide, Chanelle is used to arid and Mediterranean gardens, this would explain her love for unusual architecturally shaped Cactus and Olive trees.

Hamish Chapman

Architectural Designer & Stylist

Hamish began working part-time at ARD in July of this year. He recently finished his studies in Landscape Architecture at UNSW, where he developed a passion for understanding and designing outdoor spaces, and designing with plants. During his degree, Hamish undertook an exchange semester in Copenhagen, which inspired his undergraduate thesis that investigated how Copenhagen’s entrenched culture of bicycling influences peoples’ use of parks and public spaces.

Throughout his studies, Hamish also worked as a gardener, maintaining a number of sizeable gardens on Sydney’s north shore alongside an experienced horticulturalist. He continues to work in a small number of these gardens, and has also returned to UNSW as a tutor to first year students in the Landscape Architecture program. The subjects he is involved with have a focus on horticulture, ecology, and planting design.
