What My Clients Say...


"Robyne was approached to give the Club's front garden a new lease on life.  Having listened to what the Club wanted, Robyne set about preparing a completely new design for the 300 sqm space.  We were really pleased Robyne happily incorporated some minor changes to suit us, after which the wheels were set in motion.  Our new garden is now a reality.


Robyne monitored progress throughout the planting programme with a hands-on approach.  With many Club Members uncertain about this transformation of the front garden, I am pleased to say they are all pleased with the results.


The Club enjoyed working with Robyne on this project and happily recommend her services to anyone seeking a friendly, professional approach to landscape gardening.  They need look no further...".  (Daniel Ferguson, General Manager, Hornby Workingmen's Club & MSA Inc)



"Robyne is my first choice and recommendation when it comes to designing a beautiful garden that works. Her landscape plans are superbly drawn and easy to interpret. I have used Robyne twice to design my gardens. Her personable approach is invaluable as she works alongside you to incorporate your own ideas into a realistic plan that transforms into a beautiful garden.

I am a very grateful gardener. "  (Barbara Kelly, Rangiora)



"Robyne, we want to say thanks so much  for a great landscape plan and booklet which was easy to read and understand while being detailed, it is exactly what we had in mind!  You were great to work with, able to listen to our ideas while providing professional feedback and alternatives in a professional manner.  It was easy to communicate with you and we enjoyed    
working alongside you to create our landscape plan.  We will not hesitate to highly recommend your services to others." 

(Rachel and Scott, Kirwee)



"We asked Robyne to help us with the landscaping design for our garden around our house, which sits on a 10 acre block in Tai Tapu. In our case we had a number of tricky site conditions, not the least being a site that until recently had been a paddock and half of our site is a hill.

Prior to meeting Robyne we had trouble finding designers who could help us with a country garden, in particular some of the difficulties working with a completely open design canvas, water restrictions, animal incursions and practical advice on how to put it all together. It wasn't a matter of designing a garden around our house, it was more of a whole property discussion and design.

We loved Robyne's friendly and practical approach, together with an understanding of what plants suited our area. Robyne first met with us on site, then worked with us to develop the layout and planting style. It took a few goes to get things sorted then we had not only a plan but a story book to go with it. She left us to it for 12 months, then we invited Robyne back to have another look around and to work with us to solve a few problems that living somewhere for a year in a place shows up.

We would thoroughly recommend Robyne's services."  (Kerry and Derryn McFetridge, Tai Tapu)




" Donna and I would like to thank you for your amazing and comprehensive landscape plan for our Tai Tapu property. You listened to our needs over a couple of house meetings and incorporated your flair to come up with the perfect end product.
Thanks so much."  (Mark and Donna Frame, Tai Tapu)
