GARDEN DEVA recommends:


We trust Crafted Gardens and Landscaping to look after our clients and bring our designs to life. They love translating our vision into a beautiful space in which to feel relaxed and nurtured.

Ashley and Cameron Hoogendyk, experienced horticulturalists and directors of CGAL, ensure that each member of their team not only has excellent trade skills but also is strongly committed to being  environmentally conscious. We like that sustainable and eco-friendly practices are prioritised in every one of their projects; from selecting materials to soil and water management.

They specialise in installing both hardscaping and planting designs, offering quality lawn renovations - with Ashley bringing his specialised expertise as a qualified Sports Turf Manager 
- advanced water-conserving reticulation systems, and personalised garden services and maintenance. 

Whether installing informal native gardens which echo Perth's distinct beauty or building more structural and intricate hardscapes; the team at CGAL ensure that every design is executed with precision, passion, and care. They are also dedicated to regularly communicating with us our clients during each project, ensuring the landscaping process is seamless and stress-free.

Greenlife Soil Company is our go to for anything soil related. Garden Deva have been recommending this excellent family business since Linda and Paul Mitchener started their business many moons ago. We believe that their carefully blended soils are quite possibly the best in the country. No kidding. The addition of clays, rockdusts, charcoal and other microbial goodies to their composts/soil mixes ensure that moisture and nutrients are retained and plants are given the best start in life. This is particularly critical in summer here in Perth as it can be staggeringly hot in summer and plants need all the help they can get to survive. 



Country Earth have a large variety of unusual and classic pavers. Like us, they pride themselves on doing things a little differently. We often use their stunning natural stone range because they are timeless, elegant and of the highest quality.   They also offer full landscaping services if purchasing their paving. Excellent service.
