EcoPlant had its beginning in 2008. Founder Ryan Key, with a solid history in the nursery and landscape industry in South Africa, identified a niche in the landscape industry.
He realised mass planting was an achilles heel for a lot of landscape companies. He devised a service that would take the pressure and hassle out of planting by creating a risk-free, fixed price contract planting service.
This gave clients the freedom to complete their projects without worrying about missed deadlines, questionable quality, and quotes that didn’t quite match final prices.
EcoPlant began with two crews – one each in Sydney and Brisbane. EcoPlant found rapid success in the market, securing substantial contracts in Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and as remote as Stradbroke Island.
Our reputation for quality and reliability grew. By the end of our first year, EcoPlant was the planting partner for the Gateway Motorway Upgrade project. EcoPlant was tasked with planting over one million plants, despite tough conditions and working nights and weekends to fulfill our guarantee.
