Design and Garden Landscapes will work with their clients through design stages. This helps to improve the finished product and ensure the clients vision is met.

Design & Garden Landscapes are a one stop design studio for all your landscape and garden design and construction needs. From start to finish our talented team can transform your space from a simple on site consultation to concept plans and onto more detailed specification drawings and planting schedules.

Once the design is completed our award winning landscape construction teams can come on site and weave their magic. The big plus for you as our client is that you start with us and you end with us. We pride ourselves on creating personal gardens tailored to you.


We come on site to look over your garden and to give our recommendations to how we can help. This may simply be a fresh set of eyes or solving site issues that require our skills or planting suggestions.
We will travel out of town and have projects on the go throughout the lower South Island. Often the first consultation will lead on to concept plans that will allow the site to be designed. This gives us a chance to sit down and create the garden following your wish list and our recommendations.


Our design team will provide you with plans for your project



: Concept plans: This is an initial design of the project that will allow for consultation on the end result. It should be flexible and enable you to make changes and to see what our design team can create as a hard copy plan.
Most of the plans we provide only need to be designed to this stage to enable us to carry out the construction.

: Base plans: This is more for gardens and building work requiring consent. It will have detailed specifications and will allow the final draft to be detailed working drawings. This is more often a requirement based around commercial or our larger building projects.

: Planting plans: We have a very experienced team to help you with the softer elements of your site. We have a background in horticulture with qualified plants people on board, and testimony to this is our planting awards in the horticulture category in the LANDSCAPING NZ AWARDS programme. We can supply detailed planting plans and also source and plant out your garden areas.




We are passionate about starting and completing your garden and once our design team have finished we then start the creation of your dream space. This may be decking, paving, water features, paths, walls, screens, lawns, lighting, sculpture, or many other elements that make up your garden. We have skilled tradesmen and pride ourselves in using quality materials and some amazing combinations to create your garden. We are accredited installers of a new permeable paving product called STONESETnz. This will allow a pebble finish in multiple colours to be placed as paths, patios, and drives, and other applications.

Once your garden has been created it is important to have it looked after. If you wish us to help you maintain your new space we can set up a maintenance programme for you. This will allow us to take away your worries of looking after your investment.
