Sydney’s Preferred Sustainable Landscapers

Ground Up is one of Sydney’s leading sustainable landscapers, and we have been brightening up Sydney’s backyards and public spaces for five years. We are based in Neutral Bay on Sydney’s Lower North Shore and provide our sustainable landscaping services across Sydney.

Our highly experienced landscapers and horticulturists provide a full garden maintenance and landscaping service, from basic plant care to complete landscaping redesigns. Ground Up works for both residential and commercial clients, as well as for local municipalities.  Offering great value with expert knowledge and a friendly team, Ground Up is the choice for your next landscaping project.

Ground Up was founded by Angus Drover, an experienced horticulture, environment and wildlife enthusiast whose green thumb was nurtured by his father, a chemistry professor and soil scientist. Angus is a firm advocate of beautiful and functional green spaces.  He also supports those who wish to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs sustainably to maximise the use of green spaces. Angus has imparted his beliefs to all the landscapers that work for Ground Up, and the team is constantly working to make the best use of their clients’ green spaces.

One key element to Ground Up’s creation of sustainable gardens and landscapes has always been using garden maintenance products that are safe for the environment and pet-friendly. Ground Up also strives to use products and related services that are 100% Australian owned and operated. This means we are proudly keeping our environments sustainable and supporting other Australian businesses with similar visions.
