Applied Horticultural Services was established back in 1999 by Andrew Smith. With qualifications in Landscape Design, Landscape Construction and Horticulture along with having studied Arboriculture (tree surgery) Plants and Gardens have been my passion from a young age.
I started formal studies in Horticulture in 1996 at a VCE level and then in 1997 started Tafe night classes while completing my final year of the VCE. At the same time, I was doing garden maintenance for several clients. My enthusiasm for landscape design and construction was created through working in and maintaining client’s gardens, I became passionate about wanting to make them both more functional and refined.
The team now includes Marcus who joined me as an apprentice several years ago now and is now fully qualified and Jacob who Is a school-based apprentice. We also work with several other specialist tradespeople to make sure all works are completed to a very high standard.
