A history of Landscape Tanks™

Where it started

The engineering research and design for our concrete tank manufacturing business started back in 2002. At that time, the inventor John Woodhouse and his engineers had amassed an impressive number of Australian Design Awards, twelve in total, and John Woodhouse had won the BRW Australian Entrepreneur of the Year. Their design, research and development collaboration became the basis for a number of Patents (granted and pending) and the innovative Landscape Tanks™ design present in each tank.

Todays Landscape Tanks™ is also a collaboration. To survive in our business you need to operate a lean business and outsource speciality functions to experts. Our professional concrete caster partner is Inform Constructions, they have over 60 years experience in concrete casting. This strategy provides sophistication in our tanks and our customers with a great range of finishes. Cladding, decoration and colouring that will enhance your job along with blend into your home's external furnishings.

On our side of the collaboration is John Clifford, he is Director of Operations, Sales and Administration. John is responsible for finding hybrid water / retaining wall and On-Site Stormwater Detention (OSD) solutions for clients. OSD is now part of many Council development regulations / policies. Landscape Tanks™ offer a cost effective, simple and fast OSD solution. John Clifford is a Chartered accountant and a joint owner of Landscape Tanks™.
