Leonard Wall

Leonard comes from a Manawatu farm.  Gardening has always been an interest for him as with both his parents and grandparents alike. The Karere Gardens of his great-grandfather was designed by the Famous landscape Gardener Alfred Buxton.

Whilst attending Lincoln University where he studied Landscape Architecture, he worked part time for Suzanne.  In 2009 Leonard was part of our team that designed and organized Ryman Healthcare’s ‘High Tea in the Garden’ that won a bronze award.

At the end of 2009 Leonard moved back to the Manawatu and started up “Beyond the Wall Landscapes Ltd”.  In 2010, Beyond the Wall Landscapes entered a garden in the Manawatu Garden festival landscape design category where he won the gold award for his country inspired formal courtyard.

Leonard now has a wide range of Botanical knowledge with 10 years’ experience in the industry plus a bachelor’s of landscape architecture.  2013 saw Leonard return to the South Island, where once again he has proved a valuable asset to our team, assisting with a variety of tasks including sourcing, layouts, and planting of our designs.
