About Us

Lead by director Chris Barbic, the professional and experienced team at Down to Earth create individual gardens specific to the environment and as unique as the families that use them.

Chris' love of the outdoors began as a youth in rural NSW on his family's property. As a young adult his interest in agriculture took him overseas to Britain. When he returned to Australia, Chris worked with commercial and residential landscapers in Canberra before leaving to gain experience in Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia. During this time Chis gained experience with landscaping materials, advanced his knowledge of native plants, gained experience on earthmoving machinery, and was fortunate to work with some of Australia's most renowned landscape designers.

In 2006 Chris opened the highly successful Melbourne landscaping business Down to Earth Landscaping Pty Ltd, before he returned home to Batemans Bay in 2011. With experience and techniques gained over four states and territories Chris is able to adapt to all environments.

Heading the administration office, Pariece Nelligan has extensive experience in administration, project management, and corporate communication across a variety of industries, and leads the way to ensure a quality service that exceeds customer expectation.
