Meet The Team

I've worked with some great people over the years. Each worker brings their own skills, knowledge and perspective. This year, I've put together a team with diverse strengths that's allowing Head Gardener to achieve more than ever before. Let me introduce myself and the wonderful people I work with:

I have been landscaping on the west coast for over 15 years.

My passion for what I do keeps me in this business - passion for creativity, people, and collaboration. I thrive on meeting people and being in service to help solve landscape design problems. My guiding principles are: functionality, comfort, elegance and simplicity. I want your garden to work for you, so you can enjoy your outdoor living space with ease.



Although the youngest member of the team, Shaye has been working for Head Gardener the longest, and has known Dan like family for nearly a decade.

An artist and illustrator, Shaye is right at home when it comes to garden design and cleanup. Shaye describes his weed wacker as the pen that outlines gardens and his mower as the brush that paints lawns to an even perfection. He's no stranger to hard work and has become skilled at labouring hard with an economy of movement.



Seamus was brought in during the busy spring 2017 season to help us grow. It was a delight for him to beautify some of Victoria's most inspiring and colourful residential landscapes. While he was with us, we also took full advantage of his superb photography skills to document some of the work we do. A collection of his assorted photography is visible here:
