The love of Gardening

When designed and implemented well, gardens can provide many hours of joy, peace and even entertainment. They can also be designed to commemorate important events or people, providing a legacy for future generations (also see ‘projects’ for an example of a commemorative garden- Tongi Maara). Whatever the style or theme you like we can work with you to identify the best plants and trees to provide you with the garden you are looking for. Whether it is just pulling together a planting plan that you can implement in your own time, or installing the plants for you as well, our team will work with you to design the right package for your needs at competitive prices.

We also provide a follow up garden maintenance service including for urban restoration projects. Contact us to discuss your needs further.
