Forward-thinking and
self-sustaining garden designs that will take care of you
(not the other way around)

Across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula

The Cutting Hedge Landscaping combines expert plant knowledge with sustainable landscape design so that your garden takes care of itself and serves you well into the future.

Welcome to your future garden


You’ve just brewed a tea using fresh buds picked from the chamomile (Chamomilla recutita) by your kitchen door.

You carry your mug outside, admiring the mossy no-mow grass (Zoysia tenuifolia) bubbling around your stone steppers on the way to a chunky messmate bench. 

From there, you breathe in the fresh scent of the Mexican orange blossom (Choisya ternata) nearby and admire the vibrant blossoms blooming on your thriving crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica).


Now that you’re here, let’s see what I can do for you…

Gardens are a journey, not a destination

With clever landscaping, you can have a garden that delivers a new sensory experience with every exploration. 


The Cutting Hedge Landscaping is about creating gardens that can be EXPERIENCED. 


Gardens that tell a story, take you on a journey, help you unwind, and are made to show off. 


Gardens that work for THEMSELVES so you can spend more time in them rather than working on them.
