Born & raised locally, Steve completed his secondary education at Bairnsdale Tech. He worked in various fields before he found his true vocation at Burnley Horticultural College. On completion, Steve joined Melbourne City Council, where he maintained the Floral Clock, ( including designing & planting the annual displays).
Country life was calling, so Steve (& Penny) moved to Shoreham to develop & maintain a large country property. Also during this period he completed numerous other design projects.
Family ties & a more relaxed life style brought Steve (Penny, & Lachy) back to East Gippsland. Steve became the head gardener at The East Gippsland Centre where he developed award winning gardens, much enjoyed by patients & staff alike.
Steve's next challenge was to start Cammscapes, which continues to grow & improve........
Penny spent her childhood in Melbourne, but has always been drawn to a country life & the beauty of nature. This led her to Burnely Horticultural College where she thrived learning a broad spectrum of knowledge on all aspects of horticulture, in particular, plant identification & design.
Penny traveled overseas where she gained a wealth of life experiences. Another high light of this sojourn was visiting many extraordinary gardens & National Parks.
Penny has worked in amenity horticulture, agriculture, nurseries both retail & wholesale including running a perennial nursery at Bruthen while their children were small. She has a strong love of plants & this comes through in her designs.
Bush walking is Penny's passion, & it is in this environment where she gains inspiration for much of her design work, especially for working with our local granite rocks.
Cammscape's designs are primarily Penny's responsibility. Steve's input ensures the practicality and functionality.
