- Extremely poor experience - Was harassed until we finally decided to go ahead and book our initial consult by owner (named of Rob) - When he decided to come out, was rushed in the consult, we didn’t feel comfortable at all with him, answered multiple other calls during consult, very unprofessional. Left about 15-20minutes later saying he will send us through some proposed designs and sketches as he had another job to attend. - After the initial consult, we only heard back from him ONCE and that was only to pay his consult fee (he was quick to send this - within 24 hours!!!) - We paid this immediately - After we paid Rob, we never heard back from him at all despite trying to call, email and message him. Got his $250 worth for 15minutes of work and that was the end of him! - Extremely disappointed with his service, until this day we still don’t have any plans or designs from him for our front and backyard. I’ve now escalated this through the ACCC who are reviewing this for us - Would not recommend Distinctive Gardens to ANYONE and especially not the dismissive lier Rob who we dealt with. Feel free to contact me for alternatives who we ended up going with

The team @ Distinctive Gardens led by Rob Cooper were a professional, capable and innovative group to work with. We were impressed with the dedication and ongoing support provided. Rob has a " can do " attitude which filters through his hard working team. He is well supported by Lee who has had years of experience and is proficient in CAD and its utilisation for clients. The landcaping at our home consisted of creating levels for terracing. This in turn has created focal points and visually lengthened and created interest to our home. Garden beds were defined, hard scaping foundations laid and planting plus new turf completed the significant scope of work. Outdoor rooms were created to provide whimsy and to compliment the indoor spaces, which we felt was crucial to successful and balanced design. We found the entire process to be pain free and would use this business again. Additionally, we would recommend Distinctive Gardens to our friends and family.

Distinctive Gardens has earned its reputation as one of the finest landscape design and construction houses in South Australia. Whether you are a private customer seeking a landscape design, or a trade professional looking for a landscape specialist, Rob and Lee's commitment to providing the highest level of workmanship and service will not disappoint. For several years now, Anston has supplied product for Distinctive Gardens projects around Adelaide, and we greatly value our working relationship, which is one of mutual respect. The Distinctive team are highly knowledgeable, creative, and carry a genuine desire to help their clients achieve their dreams - and on occasion there is no doubt they would surpass their expectations for the quality of the finished landscape.

We hired Distinctive Gardens to guide and assist us with our landscape design and then carry out the work. We had a general idea of how we wanted the front and back to flow, and felt understood and excited after our initial meeting with Landscape designer and Director. When the plans soon came back for us to look over, we were so impressed and did not have to wait long to get the work under way. Instead of in our eyes initially 'just being a garden to finish off the new build' it became the finishing touch that took our property from being lovely to amazing. The staff - The designers to the Landscapers - have been such a pleasure to deal with, rain or shine smiling faces, always approachable and happy to keep us in the loop. Now as we sit back within our gorgeous surrounds we are so Thankful to Distinctive Gardens for creating our own little paradise. Cheers. Kylie & Daniel
