Welcome to our website everyone! I thought it was about time that we introduced ourselves. We are the team behind Yaroomba Landscapes - Meagan and Jayden. Partners in life and business. Jayden is the main man. He grew up in Maroochydore before his family relocated firstly to Hamilton Island, then to Sydney's Northern Beaches. Leaving high school in year 10 to complete a Landscape construction apprenticeship, he learnt off one of the leading landscaping companies in Sydney. Now aged 26, Jayden has been landscaping for more than 11 years, leaving behind traces of his work in Sydney, the NSW mid-coast, Gold Coast, and of course here on the Sunshine Coast. In 2014, we both decided to leave Sydney and slowly road-trip our way back to Queensland. Stopping at almost every little coastal town, we ended up getting landscaping jobs along the way. That's when I began to learn the skills off Jayden - and that's when we really became a team. It just felt right, and we both worked so well together. He has guided my way through landscaping, and I have since studied Horticulture. The cool thing about structural landscaping is that it incorporates nearly all of the trades. You could hire a carpenter, tiler, brick/block layer, concreter, fencer, horticulturist - but we can do it all in one go. There's always variety and it never getse boring. We were both employed by the same company here in the Sunshine Coast, but this year we decided to branch off on our own. We wanted the jobs that we worked on to be our own designs. We wanted to start our very own portfolio. We wanted the chance to meet our own clients. And we of course wanted the chance to create a better work/life balance. Why did we call it Yaroomba Landscapes? For us, Yaroomba is that special place that we were just meant to be. We packed up our lives on the Gold Coast in 2015 and once again planned on a roadtrip, this time along the coastline to Perth. We completely intended on moving there, but when it didn't quite feel like the right place, we spontaneously decided to cut back through the middle of the country and landed here. It was just one of those times where everything worked out as it was supposed to. Yaroomba is the first town that has made us feel like it is the "right" place for us. We plan on staying for a long time and are even expecting our first bub in November this year - although that won't slow us down! Our goal is to help everyone improve their outdoor lifestyle, beginning with their back (or front) yards. And Enjoyment is always our priority. If you're not enjoying your lifestyle, something's gotta be done about it! We make sure to enjoy our work and we want our clients to enjoy their finished product, whether it is a freshly mowed lawn, a new outdoor entertaining area, or an entire yard make-over. We feel so lucky to have taken the leap to start our own business. We are super grateful to all of you who have supported our little business so far and look forward to meeting many more of you legends! Cheers!
