We Are Green Survival

Green Survival, a landscape and horticultural service provider, was founded by Denis Fitzpatrick in 1979.  Since then Green Survival’s qualified staff have delivered many quality landscape and horticultural services to a wide range of clients throughout Brisbane and South East Queensland.  The quality has in fact been recognized 18 times by the peak body for landscape in Queensland, presenting Green Survival with 18 awards for excellence. Some of these projects are featured on our website.

Green Survival has also provided excellent training for many professionals now operating their own landscape business throughout South East Queensland.  In 2013 Green Survival employee Rory was awarded the top apprenticeship award for landscape in Queensland.

Green Survival, led by Denis Fitzpatrick, has a well established working relationship with engineers, architects and builders.  Denis is a tertiary qualified landscape professional who has been awarded for his long relationship with the peak body for landscape excellence in Queensland. Landscape Queensland was formerly Queensland Association of Landscape Industries of which he is a founding member and served many years as president and on the board.  He was awarded one of the very few life memberships and recognized by the Queensland Government for his work to professionalise the landscape industry in Queensland and Australia with the Build Environment Award.

His overall knowledge of landscape construction is so well recognized he is often engaged to inspect and write reports about landscape construction for use in courts of law or for awards committees interstate.

The staff of Green Survival are regularly trained and informed of the most up to date materials and methods for landscape construction for both hard and soft elements of installation.  They regularly attend in service training and field days and network with other professionals in the industry.
