History

Director Graham Bradtke has been creating some of Melbourne’s finest landscapes since 1991, developing a reputation as one of the industries most skilled and dedicated contractors.

After completing his Apprenticeship in 1991 with Blue Hills Landscapes he started his own business Graham Bradtke Landscape and Construction.

This was followed by a stint as partner in Stonelea Landscapes and now as the principal of Live in Landscape.

The name Live in Landscape was chosen to reflect the lifestyle shift whereby the traditional garden separate from the house has become the outdoor space we live in.

Renowned for his forte - specialist residential construction – Graham has been credited with at least 20 industry awards

With the vision to create more Livable and Sustainable landscapes -Live in Landscape was established.

“Graham and his team have undertaken extensive works at two of our properties in Melbourne. The quality of work undertaken in both instances was excellent and in particular, the dry stone work that Graham and his team undertook at our East Malvern property (around the pool area and throughout the property) was exceptional. The team were always on time, always available for discussion, fitted in with the broader builder requirements/timetable and impressively worked rain, hail and shine, in sometimes what were vert tough conditions. We are very happy with the end product and would certainly recommend Live in Landscapes services to those requiring innovative and high quality landscape design solutions.

"Live in Landscape has displayed great skill in the use of natural stone. The 900mm 'barrels' were an overwhelming feature that not many tradesmen would get right. The end result is a stunning testament to Graham Bradtke and his team." -Judges Comments, Walling in the Landscape -Victorian Landscape Awards 2008
