Myles Broad

A passion for digging holes as a young boy blossomed into a career for Myles in the landscape industry. His inspiration in design has always been drawn from nature and replicating it in a stylised way, so that envelops the spaces created.

The gardens he creates are always site and brief specific and thus do not follow a fixed pattern. Plantings range from frontline coastal indigenous grasses to big bold tropical style jungles – with everything in between. What is consistent throughout though, is an easiness and a naturalness that make the spaces feel good to inhabit. Good garden creation means making people feel good about the places that they live and the team at Eckersley Garden Architecture have been doing that for years.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
