How it works
- Owner of MR Gardens
- Gardening and Horticulture Specialist
- Creator of unique outdoor spaces
Hello, I’m Mitchell from MR Gardens.
I have always loved the outdoors and am passionate about creating and helping others create unique outdoor spaces suited to their lifestyle and needs. Seasonal gardens, multistage gardens, native plants, landscaping, lawns and pest management are my areas of expertise.
My interest in gardening and the great outdoors started as a kid, learning from my grandfather. This continued into my adult years, where I worked closely with a landscape designer and eventually opened my business, MR Gardens, which was born out of high demand for quality and specialised gardening services.
I have a good sense of which plants can be used in the Adelaide climate and the most suitable plant combinations for your garden requirements. Having worked as a private gardener and landscaper across a number of properties, I have working and practical knowledge of maintenance requirements, seasonality and compatibility of different plant species.
Several considerations exist when designing or uplifting an existing outside area, from design and layout to maintenance and overall ‘look and feel’. These activities typically occur before the shop to the nursery or garden supply store (or perhaps during). There are ways to maximise the value and visual impact without exceeding the budget.
Creating a beautiful garden is one thing; keeping it beautiful is another thing entirely! Maintenance and upkeep are key activities, as is staying on top of pests and managing diseases to minimise impact. Timing of garden care, watering, adding new plants, pruning etc., all play a role in the longevity of the garden and outdoor area.
I am pragmatic and like to look at options for a garden that maximise the investment, such as lawn alternatives and landscaping options suited to the space and individual needs.
