Trents Rd

The relationship with this client in Trents Road has been an ongoing one and after helping and revamping their previous home, I was fortunate enough to be able to plan and organise planting for this beautiful new home, next to their rural equine establishment.

Large native mounds now enclose certain areas and screen off other buildings and the strong Canterbury winds.

Standard Cherry trees line the driveway, with Pin Oaks following the road frontage.

The garden close to the house has a formal style within box hedges and pretty exotics.

It is colourful and is always beautifully presented with additional annuals and tendered by a garden loving owner, who has been a delight to work with.

There is now a large rock water-feature with palms, a walled garden courtyard, fantastic gazebo, beautifully cut lawns and wide attractive entry.

It pays to plan ahead to get and achieve cohesive whole garden, rather than a piece meal development.

Here is what Valerie herself has to say:

Suzanne revamped my garden 10 – 12 years ago, which has had very pleasing results. She has also since designed my 2 acre lifestyle garden. I am delighted with the mounds, water feature and gazebo and the native plantings are outstanding, it is much admired by our guests”.

Commercial Projects

Commercial jobs and settings for business enterprises differ in their briefs.

Resource consents, from small garages to large commercial enterprises have different rules, wants and needs.

Formal rest home gardens with colourful displays and exotic planting are a joy to create and view, but are labour intensive.

We have been involved in creating the settings for Ryman Healthcare’s 21 villages from Whangarei to Invercargill, and our association with them goes back nearly 20 years.

Developments to meet council regulations can sometimes be a mind field of rules and regulations. We can help, and have been involved with the landscape of many different developments from, Dentist rooms, large retail complexes, sport stadiums, warehouses, industrial subdivisions, business parks and more. We can create a functional setting to enhance your business and property.

Hill Site & Lifestyle Block

Another happy client went from a flat rural Lifestyle block at Darfield which we designed, to a hill property in Christchurch, which is steep and has a lovely view.

The steeper areas of the hill property also had natives, but the pretty flowering exotics around the house again.

Both had natives featuring in their wider gardens.

We designed both gardens according to their brief.

They were delighted with the results.

Ryman Healthcare

We are proud to have been associated with the design and planting of Ryman’s 21 Villages throughout New Zealand and their awards winning gardens, from Invercargill to Whangarei. Because of their wide range of climatic variations present throughout the country we are confident that we can create a garden in almost any terrain or area.

We also have experience in a wide range of amenities from; golf courses, tennis courts, bowling greens, pools, indoor plantings and large atriums.
