Timandra originated in 1995

Timandra D&L is a partnership of David and Alison Aplin spanning a combined 42 years!
They excel at their business through passion and dedication.

All good landscape design starts with the design, and a good design needs a good designer; one with flair who has a large knowledge of plants for different or difficult places. Smart people want their gardens to look individual - not cloned. This is where good design comes to the fore, followed by high grade landscaping. There is a difference and awards speak volumes!

The initial consultation is essential to developing not only a good rapport with clients, but to understand the client's needs while also offering professional, skilled advice about design ideas and plant choices. Given a budget to work with, Alison will design a client's  garden around this amount. Timandra's work region expands throughout SW Victoria and now SE South Australia and including Robe and Beachport. If you a looking for a multi-award winning landscape designer, with the most recent being in 2014, then Timandra D&L is the right business for you.

If you are looking to build a new home, or have changes made to your existing home, you do research and look for a Master Builder to oversee this work. The same principle works for a professional landscape designer. Businesses that have association membership have to prove their worth in order to become and retain their membership. Alison is a member of both Landscaping Victoria and Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers - and there are minimum standards required for both.

Alison, once again, attended the biennial Landscape Designer's Conference in Melbourne, last October 2015. The consensus of opinion among all of the speakers, the bulk being international, was for the need to adopt sustainable principles with the overall design of the project. Sustainability is landscaping of the future. Those who practice the style of garden design with minimal plant varieties and large areas of hard landscaping are going to be left behind. There is a strong movement back with the use of plants in the landscape, thus considerable horticultural knowledge is essential for a professional, awe-inspiring design that is going to last.
