Dale Smith

Dale strongly identifies with ‘Ikigai’, a Japanese concept that translates to, ‘a reason for being’, and providing one with direction and purpose in life. He feels fortunate to have found his purpose early, and lives and breathes horticultural care, deriving a great sense of joy from his work.

Dale has had many years of experience in the industry, first honing his skills in the grounds of St Peter’s College, rising to the position of head gardener before founding Prestigious Gardens in 2014.

As Director of Prestigious Gardens and an accredited Horticulturist, Dale makes sure he keeps himself and his team up to date with the latest industry knowledge and developments.
