Home > History >

Roger Brown is the founder of Focal Point Garden Design. His career in the landscaping and garden design industry commenced in 1992 working with landscaping and maintenance company, Garden Tapestry. It provided an ideal grounding to learn his trade and Roger built on his knowledge through his studies in horticulture and garden design. He graduated in 1996 with an Advanced Certificate of Horticulture from Burnley Horticultural college and in 1998, Roger founded Focal Point Garden Design.

Roger's early designs were mainly for suburban blocks in Melbourne’s eastern  and south eastern suburbs and through word of mouth referrals he found opportunities to design and landscape different styles of gardens in a range of environments around Melbourne. His commitment to  designing and landscaping a property to suit the needs and lifestyle of his clients whilst complimenting the available terrain, has helped Roger establish a reputation as a sought-after suburban designer in Melbourne.

Roger's capacity to understand and integrate his client's lifestyle requirements in the design process coupled with his creative flair, extensive plant knowledge, consideration of environmental factors,  landscaping skills and experience and strong attention to detail, have combined to yield a variety of successful and imaginative projects, built to the highest standards and to the great satisfaction of his clients. 

His ethos of delivering creative yet practical garden design and construction and his commitment to a reliable and honest work ethic have been invaluable to the growth of Focal Point Garden Design. This approach has delivered the business a high proportion of happy customers and has ensured constant flow of “word of mouth” referrals from clients and professionals in the landscape industry. When project managing the implementation of garden designs, Roger has always demanded the highest quality craftsmanship from his team and sub-contractors. 

As clients have discovered, Roger’s approachable demeanour and his ability to listen with respect to their ideas on what they want to have in their outdoor areas is what separates him from many other landscape designers. Roger takes great pride in the reputation Focal Point Garden Design has established for providing friendly, personalised and professional service to help guide his clients through the complete process of creating the ideal landscape and environment for their property. Clear communication and superior workmanship have become a hallmark of the business
