After graduating from Lincoln University in Christchurch in 2003 I worked in Landscape Architecture in Dubai, Sydney and in Auckland with Warren & Mahoney Architecture and Radio Live / Kiwi Living Designer Tony Murrell. In 2012 I opened For the Love of Landscape.

My travels and design experience over the years have reinforced the love I have for New Zealand’s people and landscapes.

With over 19 years experience in Landscape Design, my skills include re-vegetation schemes, residential garden design in a wide range of styles including formal, sub-tropical, native, minimalist, cottage and contemporary. 

I design outdoor spaces that people love to relax and spend time in, which also reflect the client’s individual style, while fitting the unique sense of place. I am passionate about the environment and an advocate for the use of locally sourced sustainable materials, low water plants and edible gardens for optimal self-sufficiency.

My design services include hourly Garden Consultations, Landscape Concept & Detailed Design, Planting Plans including Plant Procurement, Planting Specifications,  Lighting Design and Landscape Plans required for design review panels and council consent, and I work throughout the Waikato.
