City Meets Country Landscapes is a family-owned and run business, established in 1992. The founders of the company, Rod & Janene Griffith, still work in the business and are very much a part of the day to day running of CMC Landscapes.

We are your local landscaping specialists, catering for projects of all sizes. Whether you want to make and maintain a visual statement for your commercial premise, or create a unique space to enjoy the lifestyle you deserve, we are committed to turn your vision into a leafy reality.

CMC staff are highly qualified in all aspects of landscaping including: building, horticulture, plumbing, drainage and we are licensed with QBCC. We have extensive experience with Aged Care, commercial garden maintenance and large project management.


Our goal as an organisation is to be a sustainable chemical free company by 2019. We believe in a greener future and as gardeners we have a responsibility to ensure we are using sustainable practices that are safe for people and the environment. This is why we have made the commitment to contributing to a greener future for everyone.

Our Systems

We believe in using safer products and are transitioning existing clients to a chemical free steam weed eradication system. We will be the first company in Brisbane to use steam to kill weeds and we will look to support and guide other companies wishing to take the same direction.

We believe in supporting our customer’s vision and understand how important it is to ensure excellent customer service, professionalism and care when on site. We believe in simple processes that ensure a sustainable future for our clients and the environment.

Since 2014, Lucas has been running and managing CMC Landscapes and all its day to day operations. Lucas is hardworking, down to earth and loves working outdoors. As a manager and owner, Lucas always prioritises his teams needs and works hard to maintain a positive work environment everyday. We believe this is the key to happy customers and a job well done. Lucas’s hands on approach has helped CMC establish and maintain many great client relationships over the years. Lucas is very experienced and certified in everything landscaping; from design and construction to drainage and horticulture, always eager to learn and try new things. At this day in age its not enough to be updated with the latest technology and innovation, we have to be curious and always challenge the status quo. Lucas has experienced first hand the dangers of working with chemicals, and is now on a mission to make CMC Landscapes a leader in sustainable landscaping and garden design.

Kristy Arkadieff

Operations Manager

With a strong background in sales and account management, Kristy is our business developer and accounts manager. She has been the driving force behind the company’s sustainability focus and green approach to landscaping and gardening. The focus shifted dramatically when Kristy and Lucas had their first child in 2016, and realised the immediate dangers and long term damage of toxic chemical usage. With her positive attitude, caring nature and contagious energy, Kristy has developed many new client relationships for the business. Kristy is not only actively involved in the community, she is also always looking to support, partner and collaborate with other like minded people and businesses. Kristy is together with Lucas the next generation of this family business that started over 20 years ago. Together they want to inspire others to strive for a greener, more sustainable future.

All of our residents without exception, appreciate the friendly and professional service that is constantly delivered, and I have no hesitation in recommending CMC if you are requiring a top quality and affordable job.

  • I have been using the services of CMC Landscapes now for nearly 4 years at various aged care facilities in the Brisbane and the Logan city areas. They provide a high standard of service that in my experience lacks in their competitors within the industry. They are able to provide and apply knowledgeable and competitive solutions to all our landscaping needs. I highly recommend CMC Landscapes and look forward to our continued relationship into the future.
