The team at Michel’s Landscaping & Garden Design consists of:
Ben has been in the industry for 18 years he completed his Horticulture apprenticeship at "The Garden Complex" in Numurkah Road, Shepparton. When The Garden Complex closed down in late 2002 Ben saw an opportunity to open his own landscaping business. In September 2002 Ben commenced trading as Michel’s Landscaping & Garden Design, since starting the business Ben has had the opportunity to complete many fabulous landscapes for his customers from a simple lawn & garden area through to a stunning raised pool and entertaining area. A relationship with a handful of local building companies has also allowed Ben to show his talents in designing and constructing landscapes to suit Display Homes in the area. The purchase of "Gardens On Archer" in May 2014 has taken Ben back to his roots in a Nursery and Landscaping. He aims to ensure clients and customers continue to receive a great experience in all the businesses he is involved in.
Michelle has been involved with Michel’s Landscaping & Garden Design since its inception, managing the office and finances. With the growth of the business including the purchase of Gardens On Archer in May 2014, the addition of extra staff and the birth of Ben & Michelle’s two children in 2009 & 2011, Michelle has relinquished the day to day office duties to manage the office, train & develop staff and grow the businesses.
Stuart joined the team at Michel's Landscaping & Gardens Design in August 2016, moving to Shepparton with his young family. With an extensive background in landscaping, pool installation and irrigation he brings excellent skills to the Michel's landscaping & Garden Design's team.
Luke commenced his apprenticeship with Michel’s Landscaping & Garden Design in November 2007 and completed it in December 2011, prior to this Luke worked school holidays with the company to gain experience in the industry whilst completing his VCE. The departure of some supervisory staff in 2010 allowed Luke to take on more of a supervisory role with the support of the more senior members of the team. Since then Luke has exceeded the potential we saw in him and is now a very competent and accomplished supervisor. He is a major asset to the business through his willingness to learn and professionalism. We love hearing the feedback from the clients about Lukes quality of work, work ethic and professionalism.
