This year at MUD has been big; surprising, challenging, at times messy (muddy!) and completely enjoyable!

Thank you to our clients

We’d like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the most important component in our business; our clients. With their awesome design briefs, vision, hard-earned money and trust in us we’ve been able to deliver some really great design outcomes. 

We work alongside some legendary contractors and suppliers who work hard to bring these gardens from concept to completion. We can’t wait to share more of their work as gardens are built and begin to grow!

We won awards!

For the third year running MUD has picked up a national design award!

Every year, the AILDM National Landscape Design Awards recognise and showcase the very best landscape designers and projects around Australia.

MUD is so thankful to our wonderful clients who have trusted us with creating beautiful, sustainable gardens and landscapes for them.

View our project for each category below.

Category – Residential Landscape Design 50 – 150m2


Client brief
To create a distinctly rustic and sustainable feel for the rear garden of the existence residence, with the use of recycled materials as a key feature. The design was to have a vegetable/edible garden and for it to be constructed to the rear of the block taking advantage of the North facing aspect. This is to be a sustainable garden and inner city sanctuary for a young family.

Innovative materials
We used cost effective materials such as recycled brick, recycled railway sleepers, and recycled hardwoods to create an edgy, contemporary inner city garden.

Category – Residential Landscape Design 150m2


Client brief
To create a landscape concept design that is beautiful, functional, easy to maintain and cost effective, for both the front and rear gardens, as well as residential alterations and additions including an entertaining deck and access. An inward looking oasis in the heart of a suburban town.

Wow factor
This site has become an unexpected hideaway in the middle of a suburban area. An entertainer’s dream, by layering of all the different areas that melt into one space. It’s a cohesive, well connected outdoor space, providing safety for the children and a calming retreat for adults.

Category – Landscape Design Educational/Institutional/Playspace


Client brief
To clean and simplify the space, creating a functional and beautiful space for residents, staff and families to be able to enjoy the courtyard garden whilst in the safe environment of the nursing home. A safe place to garden and get outside ­ a sensory garden with seasonal changes, smells and tactile elements.
The key was to design a sensory garden with seasonal changes which is accessible for mobility challenged patients.

Suitability of plants
Plant choices were designed to create different zones and feels throughout the courtyard, some edible, some sensory, others for aesthetic purposes.

Summer at MUD

Like many other busy small businesses we won’t be completely stopping work over Christmas and New Year, however our office will be closed between Friday the 21st December and we’ll be back on board from the 7th of January.

We’re already looking forward to reconnecting with many of you and also to meeting some new friends in 2019.

Thank you!
