Van Balen Horticultural News

Early in 2015, we moved into our premises at 38/280 Newline Road, Dural. It marked an exciting new phase in the development of our company.

We have had a very busy recent period with several major projects as well as many smaller contract jobs. In the maintenance department we share our commitment between our valued residential clientele and high standard residential and commercial strata properties. We are pleased to have been recently appointed to landmark strata properties in Kirribilli, Cremorne Point, North Sydney, Matraville and Coogee. We are excited about our recent appointment to a major garden restoration in the Southern Highlands.
