We get involved.

Tim works with many of Melbourne’s leading architects, interior designers and landscape designers such as Jack Merlo, Rick Eckersley and Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) who appreciate CDP’s understanding of their design intent and our aim to meet their needs and maintain the integrity of the overall vision. Our involvement has covered private, municipal, institutional and commercial projects, both as principal and consultants.

Our designs are underpinned by the idea that ‘gardens are for people’ – spaces to be enjoyed and used as well as viewed. With this in mind, we aim to design a solution that combines logic, individuality and functionality.

“Tim is a competent all-round practitioner with a sound understanding of the design and construction process. More recently Tim has designed and constructed landscape within the context of a new 4 level office building for Meerkin & Apel Lawyers at 56 Greville Street, Prahran and a 4 dwelling development at Brougham Street, Kew. We are happy to recommend their services and continue to use Tim and CDP.”

“Tim held very professional meetings and extensive communication, he also cared about our property and listened to our feedback carefully. The entire design was of a surprise to us. His ideas to have our property appear ‘elevated’ were very clever and the open aspect of the design with intricate paving detail was also very appealing. Tim was always open to our suggestions and was happy to explore how our ideas could be incorporated into the design. Tim was sensitive to understanding the functionality that we required while ensuring the design was not compromised. The design has exceeded our expectations. The entrance to our home is now befitting the property and the street. The neighbours love our new look!”

“Tim was terrific. Very professional, great design and colour skills and an absolute pleasure to work with. He worked to budget, got it done on time and his staff were excellent – considerate and good to have around. We won’t hesitate to use him again.”

Jo Wormald

“As TCL is a very design focused landscape architecture practice, we really enjoy working with contractors such as Tim who also hold design and construction quality in high regard. As a fellow landscape architect, Tim has excellent skills in understanding the overall design vision, as well as the detail of each landscape component. Tim is a good communicator and is always personable, even when unforeseen and difficult issues arise on site and require timely and thorough solutions. ”
