Summer is around the corner and there is nothing better than sitting outside with friends on a warm night. I started following Growing Rooms when owner, Oliver Sizeland, joined our space. A year on, I tag Gav in pretty much every one of their posts – the outdoor spaces Ollie and his team create are next level! 🙌🏼

Recently, I asked Ollie a few questions about his passion for landscaping and his business: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: What is Growing Rooms? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Growing Rooms is a lifelong passion – it sounds corny but it’s true. I started the business in 2011 with a simple principle in mind: to create stunning and functional gardens tailor-made to our clients’ needs. We stand by that. I believe that landscaping should be an exciting and rewarding process for all involved and that through attention to detail, honest communication and hard work, each project has the potential to become a masterpiece. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: How did it come to be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hard work!! 😉I guess it’s just a passion really? Once I found landscaping, it all just flowed and the business has grown organically. I never wanted to be weighed down with growth timelines and pressing business plans, that’s just not me. As adults, we spend a lot of time at work, you need to enjoy it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: How do you get/keep the creative juices flowing?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I find that if I’m happy and in a good mood, I design better. Stay happy, work better.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: Who/what do you look to for inspiration? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everywhere. Magazines, books, Google etc. I’m always scanning the architecture when driving and walking around. Sydney is such a beautiful city and there are so many stunning homes, and examples of what mother nature can do. Inspiration is everywhere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Keep up the amazing work Ollie, I will convince Gav one day 😝
