Who Am I?

A life long love of plants lead me to the landscape industry, studying Landscape Design in 2002 and successfully winning Gold at the Ellerslie flower show as part of Unitec’s student team. ​

Following that, I’ve worked hands on in landscape construction and soft landscaping before returning to further study Landscape Architecture in 2010. 

I found passion for creating healthy environments with an ability to mitigate environmental issues, leverage therapeutic / sensory landscape techniques to relieve stress and mental fatigue, in addition to crafting stimulating spaces which facilitate learning and play for the whole community. 

I have extensive experience, my portfolio includes work on high end residential landscapes, lifestyle properties, urban courtyards, swimming pool design, playscapes for childcare centres and community parks, master planning, urban design, green roofs & green facades.

I really enjoy owning the design and implementation of projects, which fuels my creation and continued development of Design to Build Landscapes, enabling me to realise your vision, developing stimulating holistic landscapes from design through to planting.
