I was first introduced to horticulture during year 10 work experience, where I had the opportunity to work in a nursery and golf course. After completing high school, I completed a four-year apprenticeship with Parks and Gardens, that took place at the Melbourne Crown Casino, working on their rooftop garden.
After completing my apprenticeship, in 2006, I moved to Western Australia and worked for two horticultural companies before taking the leap of faith to begin my own horticultural business, DKB Garden Maintenance.
After a decade in Western Australia, I decided to come home to Melbourne where I wanted to re-establish my horticultural passion. Since arriving home, I have experienced long term employment at the Geelong Botanical Gardens and St Kilda Botanical Gardens respectively.
This experience has allowed me to gain greater plant knowledge and provide me with the opportunity to share my passion with the general public.
With over twenty years of broad horticultural experience, I am passionate and motivated more than ever to re-establish my horticultural business, DKB Garden Maintenance.
I am looking forward to establishing strong relationships with my clients and working with them to create beautiful gardens. I love seeing the satisfaction of my clients and the joy that their garden gives them.

We moved back to Melbourne after 12 years away and returned to our home that wasn’t well look after by our tenants. Donna did an amazing job on our lawn and has given us great advice and a plan in place to restore our garden. Donna is professional and friendly and did a superb job.
Donna did a fantastic job. She turned up on time, went though some thoughts I had and gave some wonderful advice. Her work was great and I look forward to her coming back.
Donna’s work on my garden was just what it needed – and more! She did a fantastic job, some landscaping, preparing the soil and planting and my garden looks wonderful. I’d highly recommend Donna, just the best.
