For almost 30 years, Frogmat began as a manufacturer and supplier of landcare products, their core offering being a soil stabilisation matting manufactured in the Western Australian wheat belt from recycled cereal straw. It was used to stabilise and revegetate constructed earthen embankments, sand dune restoration and in the mining industry.
The manufacturing plant used to make soil stabilisation matting was developed in the United Kingdom by a Mr Ken Frogbrook, and hence the name Frogmat was established.
From this humble beginning, the company has grown and diversified, leaving behind its retail offering to focus on building its reputation over 25 years in civil and commercial landscape construction and maintenance. Frogmat have completed projects ranging from small residential landscapes through to highly complex, multi-disciplinary projects for various government and private sectors.
Todd Russell purchased Frogmat Landscape Construction in June 2022. Todd has been in the landscaping industry for 25 years. He was formerly a contract draftsperson working in the mining sector, specialising in the crushing & screening of portions, tenders and IFC drawings.
After a long stint at German mega company KRUPP Engineering, Todd was enticed to work with & help his brother Ian who, at the time, was running Russell Landscaping. When Ian sold his company to Landscape Development (now LD Total) Todd became an integral part of LD’s sister company Newscape Contractors, securing some prestigious contracts such as Capricorn Village, Carramar Estate & Flynn Drive Industrial Estate to name a few.
From there, Todd went on to work for Total Eden, Deep Green (Optus Stadium) and Horizon West, before settling in at Frogmat in 2019 as project manager, overseeing the completion of the Narrogin Health Campus, St Mary’s College, Perth College & many other high profile works. Since Todd’s acquisition of FLC, we have been able to secure works at Carine Senior High School & a massive tyre distribution centre in Jandakot.
Todd looks forward to hearing from you for any landscaping needs, big or small.
