Jack's dynamic garden tips

Meet Jack from Water Dynamics...

Jack’s been enjoying everything the Territory has to offer for the last 30 years, in particular the great landscapes and amazing dry seasons of Darwin.

He’s qualified in irrigation and horticulture, but his main game is maintenance and installation. And his favourite part about what he does?

"It’s the industry variety and the great outdoors!"

When he’s not out enjoying the Darwin dry season lifestyle you’ll find him on a different kind of turf, the Fannie Bay Race Course, where Jack works as a race day starter.
