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.

GDSNZ consists of a wide range of people who share a passion for garden design: practicing garden designers, academics, teachers, students, garden owners, landscapers and others who appreciate the value of skilled garden design. One of our main aims is to encourage and support members to reach new levels of innovation and creativity in their work.

Accredited Members have undergone a rigorous process to ensure they can provide a full professional service in the industry. Designers listed on this site include Fellows, Accredited members and those whose expertise has led to their participation in the biennial Auckland Garden DesignFest.

Our contribution to the world - 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.
