We have used Sam Tuckerman landscaping on two occasions and both times it has been a great experience and outcome. Our first brief required a drive way and garden beds, Sam designed and built a beautiful treescape and blue stone driveway. More recently Sam helped us design our gardens from scratch as part of the service and delivered on our aims with ease. We needed  Sam to transform our ‘concrete jungle’ in Coburg into a lush  garden. Sam came up with an Asian theme for one component, built  great looking garden beds and put in mature trees to top it off. Sam’s construction and design were perfect. Our experience the second time around was as good as  the first with Sam delivering on his original quote, on time and finished earlier than planned. We strongly recommend Sam and his team, particularly if you need someone with an eye for design and ability to deliver a high quality job.

We enjoyed the experience of watching Sam Tuckerman create our dry stone wall garden bed. Sam listened to our ideas and helped us to select materials, and then demonstrated his skill and experience in building with stone. The result has given us a great deal of pleasure and been admired by other garden enthusiasts in Macedon.

Thank you for our beautiful new front garden! From design to completion Sam was a pleasure to deal with and the team was neat, tidy and professional.

We would not hesitate to recommend Tuckerman Landscaping.


Sam Tuckerman landscaped our new home in Essendon about ten years ago. We found Sam an absolute pleasure to deal with.

From a blank palette, Sam was able to deliver a complete landscaping package which included design, paving, decking, construction, water features, plant selection and installation. 

The whole project was delivered on time, on budget and we were thrilled with the final result. Ten years later, our garden still looks  great and Sam has kept in touch and makes regular calls to suggest any small improvements or items of maintenance which he feels are needed.

We have no hesitation in recommending Sam’s wonderful service.

I commissioned Sam at Tuckerman Landscaping & Design in Melbourne's North to do a complete makeover of my garden. His design has many innovative ideas and he provided detailed plans for all the work, including the layout of electrical wiring and irrigation as well as for the plants and features...He is very versatile and personally carried out or oversaw all of the work to his exacting standards.

The job we had was by no means an easy one. Large irregular off-cuts of recycled bluestone. Sam’s patience and perfectionism saw the job completed to a standard well beyond our expectations.

The conscientious attitude and commitment to a difficult project is a real credit to Sam and his team. We are so happy with the job Sam did. You couldn't find a better landscape designer in Melbourne.

Hi Sam,

I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful work Tuckerman Landscaping & Design did in transforming our backyard into a space that has now become an extension of our home. You worked tirelessly through temperamental weather and much mud to create a yard we thoroughly enjoy spending time in. I wanted to thank you for your professionalism, quality workmanship and advice. Spring is here and with this the flowers are starting to bloom and the leaves on the tress are a lush green. Everyone that has seen our backyard can't believe the difference and transformation that has taken place. I would happily recommend your services to anyone that required landscaping services in Melbourne. Kind regards.

We have been impressed by your planning abilities in designing the garden area, by the personal commitment you have shown towards the task which has taken many months, your work ethic which saw you arrive early each morning and continue until late afternoon, your communicational skills in resolving the many big and small decisions that had to be taken along the way and by the pride and care you have taken in the whole project.
