Creating a beautiful outdoor space involves more than a ‘few daisies in a pot’ and a nice lawn. It takes an innate sense of the land and an eye for what will bring out the splendour of the architecture that it surrounds.


Licensed with the South Australian Building Authority for structural landscaping, Matthew Thomas is one of only a few professionals qualified to provide building and construction as part of the landscaping suite of services.


To ensure your garden is given the love it deserves, our routine garden maintenance service is provided by experienced horticulturalists. No job too big or small.

They say

" On the occasional basis over the past 15 years, we have had the need to utilise the services of Matthew Thomas. Matthew has always impressed as a dedicated hard working individual who is keen and industrious in his approach to all areas which he applies himself. He is constructive in developing new ideas and concepts and after consultation, implementation of those mutually agreed projects in a timely and efficient manner. Matthew most recently assisted us in the landscaping and construction of a courtyard at the rear of a property of ours. The area was small and presented a challenge to design and construct the space in order to gain maximum usage of the area at the same time as developing a visually appealing extension to the entertaining area. Matthew was able to do this effectively and we are delighted with the result. We would have no hesitation referring people to Matthew and his team to engage their services. "

" We recently had Matt Thomas from Stringybark Landscaping lay a very large area with instant turf. His quote was several hundred dollars cheaper than our second quote. Matt's quote included rotary hoeing and several other items which the second quote did not include. The workmanship and preparation was excellent and the results brilliant. We were amazed that it only took a couple of weeks for the lines in the turf to disappear as they grass grew so quickly. Matt's after sales service was excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring instant turf or other landscaping work. "
