A love of architecture is what first drew Jon Brooksby into his field of work. However, time and experience taught him that he would find far more opportunity to express his ability for creative and innovative design within landscape architecture.

With a degree under his belt, he began his career at Planit Consulting. The subsequent range of projects he has worked in has been diverse in both size and volume, from resorts to residential estates, rehabilitation and revegetation to fire protection strategies.

Once client approval has been obtained, Jon translates initial ideas into detailed design and construction drawings that enable the project to be taken through to completion.

Jon believes form and function are always the two key elements in landscape design. Whether it’s a playground, elaborate resort grounds or rehabilitation plans for native bushland, it’s not enough for a space to be merely functional. It needs to be visually appealing as well.
