About Us


Designer Gates was founded in 2017 by James and Emma Tillman. James had 7 years of passion and experience in the landscape construction industry. Emma was on maternity leave with newborn son Mahe when James made the announcement and saw her opportunity to support James in his dream. Designer Gates burst into life and has grown alongside James and Emma's two children; Mahe and Milly. "Being able to call your job your passion is a success in my eyes."

Since its establishment, Designer Gates has had the privilege of working with a number of building and landscaping companies, architects and project managers as well as residential, farming, and commercial clients.


Based on our outstanding reputation as a dependable team who are easy to work with and pride ourselves on top quality products and workmanship; the team has had to rapidly grow to accommodate the increasing demand for our services.
