The SCL Team

Sam maintains a small but highly specialised team with decades of experience in building naturalistic landscapes. 


Jim Pfeiffer

Jim grew up in Eltham surrounded by native gardens. He was the last to undertake work experience with Gordon Ford (in 1996), and he maintained 'Fülling', Gordon Ford's Eltham garden, with Gwen Ford until she passed away in 2012. Jim studied horticulture at Burnley while still working in the industry and rejoined our team in 2005. An experienced machinery operator and with a natural eye for detail, Jim is highly proficient in the techniques we practice. Jim spends his weekends renovating and landscaping his own splendid bush property with his partner and daughter.

Dean Maguire

Dean worked on our projects as a subcontractor for many years and in 2015 we welcomed him as a full time member of our crew. With twenty years experience in the landscape industry he is a specialist in paving and stone walls. His use of stone and natural slate materials is to the highest levels of workmanship. When he’s not working Dean enjoys time with his partner and kids, touring on his Harley Davidson and creating fine home brews.


Patrick Ashton

Our latest recruit joined us in 2018 and is keenly applying himself in the design philosophies and techniques around our naturalistic practice. Patrick has a bachelor degree in Environments (Major in Ecosystem Management) at the University of Melbourne and has previously worked as a horticulturalist. Patrick takes the challenges around drawing people closer to nature seriously, particularly in the promotion of indigenous flora. Patrick’s interests include surfing, travel, coffee, cricket and books.
