Sometimes our clients hire us to replant their existing garden or build a beautiful new soft landscape from scratch out of a bare backyard. Here are some of our landscape transformations. To view a gallery, please click its main image and scroll through.

This has been a transformation of a weedy lawn with a clay base, so we have gradually added 50kg+ gypsum, removed a lot of the clay in some areas, replaced with gypsum and compost, and mulched the entire area – around 25 cubic metres of mulch.

It now has areas for hibiscus and tropical styles, gardenia, roses, alstroemeria and camellia, and fuschia. Lovely star jasmine will cover the low area below a retaining wall, and hide a drain. A rockery was added, and that’s going to look stunning when the plants grow and fill the space. Potted colour in the raised beds was a special requirement – for daily picking of flowers. Lastly, the edge of the main garden area has been planted with mondo grass which will stop the mulch being kicked onto the path by the birds.

A pre-sale makeover in Mt Eden where, over a total of 95 work hours, our team of fairies and gnomes made quite a few changes. Lightening and brightening with some Waikato fleck and pebble pavers surrounding a super cute home.

A real mixture of plants used in this mostly shady garden…camellia, ferns, bromeliads, port wine magnolia, mondo grass, astelia, to name a few!
