Ben Harris Gardens

Designing and constructing beautiful water gardens in Melbourne, Australia.

Whether you’re after a water garden, or a cottage, native or contemporary garden, you can expect a high-quality designed landscape from Ben Harris Gardens.

We create stunning natural water features for your garden. A water feature could be a small pond, or a larger billabong, a meandering stream or even a series of waterfalls. We also create pondless streams and waterfalls that combine the soothing sound and beauty of running water, without the fish and water lilies.
