Hawthorn project


Sam Egan Gardens is a Melbourne-based landscape design, construction and maintenance company specialising in the creation of elegant and functional outdoor spaces.


We love the diversity garden design offers — the synthesis of creativity, raw materials, plants and functionality. Understanding what is important to each client and delivering an outcome that exceeds expectations.

Founder Sam Egan has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Horticulture) from Melbourne University and has been designing and building unique gardens since 2003. He is personally involved in the design and implementation of every project.


We believe that landscape is equally as important as the architecture of a house and there should be a seamless relationship between the two.

Our approach centers on integrating landscape elements with architectural features to create cohesive designs. Through careful selection of plantings, strategic placement of hardscape elements, and consideration of sightlines, we ensure that every aspect of the landscape complements the property's aesthetics.


Our goal is to create outdoor spaces that not only enhance visual appeal but also improve functionality, livability, and overall harmony, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living.
