Gardens are where the Earth’s living energy is amplified. They allow us to breathe, find energy, vitality and wellbeing. Our own living energy connects with the same energy present in the Earth’s gardens. As such, they nurture and awaken our physical, mental and spiritual selves.
Relationships are critical for us. Our gardens foster enlivening relationships - between people, the earth and each other. These are places where you will find yourself.
Every client is different, every site is different.
The gardens we create are places of beauty and joy, an almost inevitable expression of the site fulfilling all needs.
is OUR passion and joy.
Landsberg Garden Design was established in 2006 and the practice works from Sydney with both private and corporate clients.
Barbara is fascinated with relationships - with ourselves, each other and our living Earth. The living energy that flows through a healthy and beautiful environment nurtures and enlivens those within it – and it is this relationship that Barbara is most interested in fostering in her gardens.
Barbara studied in London at the Inchbald School of Garden Design, and the English Gardening School in the Chelsea Physic Garden. She combines her years of experience and skill in designing gardens with a deep sense of responsibility to the Earth and to those for whom she creates gardens.

Cherith’s desire to creatively engage in the world around her has led her on a varied yet connected path. During her Visual Arts Degree at Sydney College of the Arts she was drawn to the qualities that connect people to place; ideas of home and space as a container for memories. After graduating with first class honours, Cherith sought to follow her increasing desire to work creatively with nature. For many years she worked with flowers, learning their secrets and their power to bring joy and inspire.
From floral design she discovered landscape design. Combining a love of nature with the realisation that she could play a part in creating places that connect people and hold memories, she completed her Diploma of Landscape Design at Ryde TAFE.
At Landsberg Garden Design Cherith brings a rich understanding of design principles and creative solutions, as well as horticultural knowledge. She shares Barbara and Ben’s belief that gardens deeply enrich the lives of people and can heal the Earth.
