A great garden starts with a great design. Groundswell designs sustainable and naturalistic gardens capable of stimulating the senses and inspiring the soul.

Passion and creativity drive our business. Natural elements and sustainable design practices feed into our creative process to create individual and imaginative gardens that work with the landscape, harmonising with their surroundings and meeting the functional needs of the space with minimal disturbance to the existing landscape.
