Landscape Design in Hobart

Turning visions into realities, Botanic Resources transforms garden concepts into established and attractive landscapes. We do this by working with the blueprints put together by skilled landscape architects, and then guiding the design through to completion.

Botanic Resources was established in 2002 by David Hawkes. David is a qualified landscape gardener, horticulturalist and designer with over 15 years’ experience within the industry. Having worked across a number of industry contexts in Hobart, Perth, Brisbane—and as a landscape designer in Edinburgh (UK) for two years—David continues to offer his wealth of knowledge to those across Australia.
