Over 15 years ago, armed with only a pair of secateurs, hedge shears and a dustpan, Jon took on his first garden maintenance customer. A decade and a half later, Jon still provides Garden Maintenance services to that first customer and has grown to serve hundreds more.
A proudly family owned business, Looking Up Landscapes had its origins within the family Retail Nursery, The North Rocks Greenery. Following the sale of the retail arm of the Business, the Garden Maintenance and Landscaping Services rebranded as Looking Up Landscapes. Looking Up Landscapes remains proudly owned by the McGill family and is the same great team of tradespeople with a strong commitment to excellent workmanship and customer service.
Looking Up Landscapes now provide a full range of landscaping services including construction landscaping, garden landscaping, sensory and accessible landscaping, tree services and garden maintenance.
Looking Up Landscapes have made it our mission to employ, mentor and train apprentices, enabling them to gain qualifications, life experience and work ethics that will become foundational to their adult lives.
