Off the back of a successful career in the Arts John followed a passion for furniture design seeing 7 years spent working for premier multi-disciplinary designer Khai Liew in Adelaide. Enjoying the creativity, but knowing something was missing, John began John Leathart Landscapes to incorporate his love of plants and the natural world.

Now with over a decade working with landscapes and commissioned gardens, John’s broad experience across the creative arts, attention to detail, and understanding of construction, ensures his gardens are well-made, thoughtful, creative and inspiring.

With a focus on textural qualities and longevity of material choices, John’s accommodating artistic vision means he enjoys building trust with his clients and incorporating them into a truly collaborative design process.

Clients appreciate this, calm, collaborative, and methodical approach, meaning that no matter what the project, John is able to find the right balance.
