Have you ever dreamt of having your dream garden designed and built by award winning professionals? Well now you can and you can have it done while donating to a very worthy cause.

Candeo Design is a landscape design company owned and operated by former Kilsyth Junior and SEABL player, Brent Reid. A close friend of Josh Allison, Brent was keen to offer any kind of support that he could, once the news of ‘The Josh Allison Fundraiser – Sportsman’s Cocktail Night’ came about, Brent reached out to his mates at Semken Landscaping and a host of other industry contacts and the idea of donating a designed and landscaped garden for auction on the night was born. Please Note there is a $20,000 bidding reserve on this item.

About the Designer (Candeo Design):
Candeo Design was set up in 2006 by Brent Reid. Brent has worked in the landscaping industry for over 14 years learning the ropes at Semken Landscaping whilst studying Horticulture at Burnley College and Holmesglen College. Brent has had the opportunity to be involved with the design of numerous Show Gardens at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show as well as designing gardens for Backyard Blitz and worked as a design advisor on Burkes Backyard. Brent also spent three years in the United Arab Emirates designing and constructing signature pools and landscapes throughout the UAE. Brent was lucky enough to be commissioned to design gardens and pools on Palm Jumeirah (The Palm Island) and in Emirates Hills as well as many of the best addresses in the UAE.

Candeo Design is dedicated and passionate about creating stunning, user friendly and unique gardens and outdoor spaces. All designs are based on strong horticultural practices as well as creative use of quality and interesting products throughout the garden. Strong colour and texture is a common theme throughout Candeo Design gardens creating beautiful visual effects.
