Australian Native Landscapes Pty Ltd
Australian Native Landscapes Pty Ltd
Beginning operations as a landscape contractor, the company pioneered the Australiana landscape theme by introducing innovation and many new products to the industry. This innovation saw ANL successful in the procurement of specialised projects such as the Port Botany foreshore rehabilitation and later the Kooragang Island reclamation. The recognition and experience gained in these and subsequent projects established the company at the time as a major landscape contractor.
ANL continued to expand its operations in the commercial sector by successfully completing many major projects such as the IBM Headquarters, Chinese Gardens at Darling Harbour, Sydney's Parallel Third Runway, and Olympic projects such as the Sydney International Equestrian Centre at Horsley Park.
The period 1980's and 1990's was a period of unparalleled growth in the company's landscape division and set the foundation for ANL's reputation as a supplier of quality horticultural products. This has been continuously reinforced with its supply of organic soil and mulches for the majority of the major large-scale projects undertaken in Sydney including the Circular Quay redevelopment and First Fleet Park
In the early 80's the company consolidated its composting operations and invested significantly into the development of a new pine bark grading and composting facility at Badgerys Creek. In each of the first two years of production at this new facility ANL processed over 100,000 m3 of feedstock.
In 1990, ANL revolutionised the composting of organic waste through the purchase of purpose built machinery from the US, bringing unparalleled efficiencies to its composting operations. Today the Badgerys Creek site far exceeds the early process statistic, with production of organic composts exceeding 600,000m3 annually. This operation has developed over the past 40 years to be one of the most significant and important organics recycling and processing facilities in the Sydney region. A major addition to the range of organic waste streams managed on site came with the inclusion of a 50,000 tonne FOGO processing capacity which began receival in 2019.
In 1995, ANL purchased Sherringhams Nursery, at North Ryde providing a comprehensive range of landscape and garden products under one roof. This set the scene for expansion into the retail marketplace with similar nursery and bulk retail outlets now at Terrey Hills and Seven Hills, serving Sydney's metropolitan area.
In 2005, ANL expanded its compost manufacturing footprint with the opening of an exciting regional composting facility in Blayney. This site coordinates both large scale composting and a Land Application Division operating agricultural and vineyard spreaders supplying biosolids or compost to agricultural markets. This regional facility also supports our Central West landscape supplies outlets at Orange , Bathurst and Oberon.
Since 2000 significant regional expansion has taken place in both our manufacturing and landscape supplies operations north of Sydney. Our northern region hub now includes organics recycling facilities at Wyong, Cooranbong, Kurri Kurri and Tea Gardens now supporting a supply footprint through the NSW Hunter region and north to the Queensland border. In an important recent expansion ANL has undertaken the development of a major bulk landscape supplies operation at Warnervale on the NSW Central Coast suporting the landscape and horticulture industry from Gosford to Newcastle and Port Stephens.
ANL has recently achieved a very important milestone, currently in its 50th year. Since its inception the company has maintained its commitment to providing quality sales and service, and the company is still strongly driven by its first motto, "Working in the interests of a better environment".
ANL's future is as strong as its past. The company intends to continue leading the landscape, horticultural and composting industries with enterprise and innovation.
