FC Hortcare has joined forces with leading full-service design agency The Design Hub to bring more quality and value to its clients than ever before. Adding to its extensive range of in-house garden design services, FC Hortcare will now offer clients computer-aided design (CAD) models in 2D and 3D.

“CAD models are essential for council submissions and they provide us with the technical specifications we need for landscape construction,” says FC Hortcare founder Steve Cuneo. “We’re thrilled to partner with The Design Hub to tackle an even wider range and size of residential and commercial projects in the Port Stephens, Newcastle and Hunter regions.”

With its wealth of experience in building and landscape design, The Design Hub will help FC Hortcare bring its conceptual garden designs to life. “We do concept designs for projects ranging from back decks and alfresco areas to full homes and developments,” says The Design Hub Director and Principal Designer Paula Hardwood.

“Our garden designs can include hard landscaping features like pathways, driveways, decking areas, feature screening and fire pits. They can also include soft landscaping such as garden beds, edgings, screening plants, trees and shrubs.”

By joining forces, The Design Hub and FC Hortcare will be able to make homeowners’ wildest dreams come true. “We’ll combine our strengths when it comes to creating the design and liaising with the client for those really specific and complex needs that can be both on a practical level as well as feelings that can be hard to put into words,” says Paula. “We’re really looking forward to partnering with FC Hortcare to create incredible gardens for their clients!”

FC Hortcare will continue to offer in-house garden design

While this exciting new partnership will allow FC Hortcare to take on large-scale garden design projects that require council submissions, the leading landscaping company will still offer the same in-house garden design services it has provided for over 25 years in Sydney, Port Stephens, Newcastle and the Hunter.

“We understand that not all our customers have big budgets to completely overhaul and rebuild their outdoor areas,” says Steve. “Our in-house garden design experts will continue to create amazing designs for gardens of all sizes and to suit any budget. No project is too big or too small.”

With over 100 years of combined landscaping and nursery experience encompassing sister company Plant Trade Nursery, FC Hortcare has an unparalleled level of expertise when it comes to choosing the best plants and materials for their customers’ gardens and ensuring they thrive. “We can source high-quality plants ranging from tropicals and natives to rare plants like dragon trees, along with a huge array of gardening and landscaping materials and accessories,” says Steve.

FC Hortcare offers an extensive range of landscaping and garden maintenance services to cover all its customers’ residential and commercial needs. They include:

  • Landscape construction
  • Paving
  • Decking
  • Retaining walls
  • Concrete resurfacing
  • Poolscaping
