#48 Designing Rich Landscapes with Will Dangar.

In the sixth instalment of the exclusive Australian Made series, Vince chats with Will Dangar one of Australia’s foremost landscape designers. At a time of so much uncertainty in the world, the Australian Made series focuses on brilliant people here in Australia, celebrating designing and making local.

 

Despite losing his job in the early 90’s due to the recession Will bounced back by starting his own lawn mowing business. From there his love for plants and landscape design grew rapidly, most notably due to the push and influence from his wife Julia.

 

Will Dangar’s 25-year career has seen him build some of the country’s most iconic residential landscapes. Will began his working life at a cattle station in Queensland before moving down to Sydney to become a labourer. Despite losing his job in the early 90’s due to the recession Will bounced back by starting his own lawn mowing and landscape business.

 

Will quickly developed a reputation for his refined design aesthetic, no-nonsense manner, and highly creative approach to problem solving. Now not only managing his landscape design business Dangar Barin Smith, Will is also the creative director of Robert Plumb, a distinctive Australian design and construction brand synonymous with quality craftsmanship and a practical, refined aesthetic.

 

Listen in as Vince and Will discuss the importance of empowering your employees and why embracing failure is paramount and how a business deals with its mistakes is what defines it.

 

The pair also delve into how a corporate Christmas tree side business almost sunk Robert Plumb, the business’ relationship with internationally acclaimed architect Luigi Rosselli and why Will owes so much of where he is today to his wife Julia.
