Ace of Spades Pty Ltd has been operating successfully in the creation of functional outdoor spaces, with artistic attention to detail for over seven years. The team is directed by Ned Rowell, who began in the business after gaining eight years of experience in landscape design and construction at Melbourne-based landscape firms. Ned completed a Dip. Horticulture at the University of Melbourne Burnley College in 1999, broadening his knowledge of garden design and plant selection.

A strong interest in steel sculpture led Ned to complete a blacksmithing course in 2001, whilst a two-year stint working in set construction (film and television) enhanced his carpentry and welding skills.


It was a pleasure working with you and your team. Your work was beautifully done and your care and attention to detail was greatly appreciated. I hope we have the opportunity to work together on more projects.
Arabella, Hawthorn, 2010.

We had many different jobs performed, paving, decking and sidegates installed and also new front fence. Our backyard looks fabulous, the paving has come up great and your suggestions along the way have made the paving better than expected. The decking has now made a small space very usable. I would certainly recommend Ace of Spades Landscapes to anyone interested in any aspect of garden constructions. Ned and his team are not only knowledgeable but also professional and considerate of the surrounding neighbours Ned and the team certainly went the extra mile on many occasions from storm water draining problems to dealing with the council.
Mark and Melissa, Richmond, 2010.

Ned and his team at Ace of Spades have implemented a landscape design that provides a green haven for our young family. The clear organizational process, attention to detail during the complex paving work and Ned’s ability to liaise with Trades and other Building Professionals were outstanding.

There is no charge for initial consultation to determine the requirements of the job. We will organise a time to meet with you and an initial quote will be drafted following the meeting.

We have close links with paving suppliers ensuring competitive prices and fast delivery times. We also work with skilled craftspeople to provide steel sculptures and gates and ceramic sculptures and pots.

Should a more detailed design or planting scheme be required, Ace of Spades can recommend a landscape architect to prepare designs. If the project involves recruitment of additional services (i.e. plumbers, electricians, builders, etc) Ace of Spades can organise tradespeople for you and project-manage the site.
