Abben Art Garden Design is a business that likes to keep it all in the family. Based in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula, Clive works alongside his wife Leanne and daughter Amelia who is entering her third year of a landscape apprentice course.
Though design driven, Clive sees himself as a creator of gardens and loves to follow a garden development from the first consultation to the completion of the landscaping.
Horticulturaly trained in England, Clive has 35 years of experience in the industry.
At Abben Art we love to create natural gardens that slot effortlessly into their surrounds and one of Clives greatest joys is dry-stone walling, a craft that can make a garden timeless.
Clive enjoys sharing his passion for design and taught landscape design for many years at the local TAFE. He has spoken at many functions and has been featured in various publications.
Professional advice and personal service is how we approach all our clients. This makes for a relaxed and open relationship while creating the client’s dream garden.
