Welcome to the Garden Design Society

The Garden Design Society of New Zealand (GDSNZ) is a non-profit professional organisation offering a wide range of services and activities to support and encourage excellence in garden design. As a group of enthusiastic garden designers and teachers, we aim to share our passion, experience, inspiration and knowledge, with the hope of raising awareness of the difference good garden design can make to people’s lives.
