Camouflage Landscape Design is a small business comprising of two partners Ted & Yvonne Maguire. This husband and wife team has traded successfully as Camouflage since 1985.

The key to our success is listening to clients needs and designing to those needs. Our prime commitment is to provide our clients with quality service and value for money.

We endeavour to solve landscape problems with innovative yet functional design and exceptional landscapes and gardens.

Camouflage believes in attention to detail in all designs and creating liveable spaces to use and enjoy.


Ted entered the world of horticulture through working in nurseries at the age of 18, hence, his excellent plant knowledge. In addition he was taught European Craftsmanship in the trades of Stonemasonry, Bricklaying and Timber Construction.

After working for several years as a Landscape Construction foreman, Ted was appointed Manager of a Retail Landscape Yard where his duties included ordering and sales of Landscape materials and designing and coordinating Commercial Landscape projects.

After working for others for many years the next step was opening his own business and Camouflage Landscape Design was opened in 1985.

In conjunction with running his own business Ted has lectured in landscape design, landscape construction and horticulture to Diploma level at various Institutes of TAFE.

In addition to the qualifications he has achieved; Ted has gathered, through life experience, sound building and construction skills, which enable him to design and construct functional and affordable landscapes.

Landscape design & construction is a passion for Ted. He truly loves designing, creating and building landscapes and gardens.

Yvonne has extensive experience in banking, finance, business and customer service. She worked in the finance industry for 15 years and has held such voluntary positions as State President of VISA, Secretary of AHSS P & C, and Secretary of AC Swimming Club.
