Maximilian founded MAXIMIZE DESIGN following an internationally acclaimed Silver-Gilt winning show garden at Bloom 2008.

He worked in landscape construction for 8 years in Germany, while completing a 5 year degree in Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture in 2005. Since then Maximilian has worked as a landscape designer in Germany, the US, Spain and Ireland, which broadened his perspective on materials and plant use as well as style ethics.

The firm caters for all project sizes and budgets, commercial and private. They approach each project with an open mind, taking on board the client’s needs to design a space within their budget but with maximum visual and practical impact.

We both loved working with Max. Firstly he got a great grasp of our requirements and developed a beautiful design which met the brief perfectly. Thereafter, he sourced beautiful trees and shrubbery and coordinated the execution work efficiently. Most of all we loved his passion for his work and his great attitude. He is a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him unreservedly.

Don & Jacqui Maher

Max and his team created a truly fabulous garden for us. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Max was incredibly easy to work with, he listened very carefully to what we wanted to achieve, came up with the perfect design, and was so open and accommodating, never minding when we wanted to make changes. He also had to cope with some very frustrating problems as there were supply issues due to the pandemic and handled it all with great patience and humour. He and the team were friendly, respectful, professional and were as committed to the project as we were ourselves. We are delighted with the end result. 5 stars.

We hired Maximise Design to landscape our front garden. We had some quality issues with a previous Designer and were looking for the right person to rescue the situation and give us the garden of our dreams. From the very first consultation with Max, we felt he listened to our needs and came back with a showcase of photos that very much mirrored our conversation. This gave us the confidence that he was the right person for our job and he did not disappoint giving us that WOW look we had been looking for. He was flexible when it came to changes and really helped us work within our limited budget. His team are hard working and respectful and like Max a pleasure to deal with at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending Max and his team.

Would 100% recommend Max and his amazing team. It was a large project to complete the full exterior front and rear in our house - install pebbled driveway, front path, front and rear landscaping, rear patio area and a built in BBQ area. Apart from Max's skills in garden design, construction and horticulture, he and his team always turned up on time (often early), he was always there to oversee, never let us down, the team were polite and discreet, the budget was well managed with few hidden extras and Max was trustworthy within an inch of his life. From someone who has had their fair share of bogus builders, it was refreshing to say the least to deal with a true professional. And we got a beautiful garden/driveway/entrance at the end of it that continues to become more beautiful every year. Thanks Max!

I had a tiny depressing yard at the back of my house and now I have a beautiful space which I find elegant, understated and serene with a dash of idiosyncrasy and charm. I am not sure how he did it, but Max channeled, with minimum input from me (which I didn't have the time or the ability to give), exactly what would suit. He and Tim and Andy then just turned up and built it - friendly and reliable presences - and left the house (not to mind the garden) better than they found it. Apart from being pleasant, this firm is professional to the core - all estimates as to timing and fees were spot on and clearly signaled. I recommend them wholeheartedly,
