Garden: Chatfield Place, Remuera

This 1970's house and property were in desperate need of attention. The client wanted to redesign both the house and garden in a way that would modernize the property and boast some strong architectural characteristics. The client also wanted great outdoor spaces for entertaining, an outdoor fireplace, areas where the kids could play, a productive garden, a wow entrance and great street appeal all on a surprisingly small section. We were able to accomplish this and much more!

Gary has been designing some of the finest gardens in Auckland for over 40 years and has been involved with the design of over 3000 gardens. His knowledge of plants is vast and he is very experienced at designing gardens that are extremely practical but also have real and lasting appeal.  Over the years, Gary has received multiple accolades for his outstanding work, including a gold design award at the Ellerslie International Flower Show. In his spare time he enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience by teaching landscape design at MIT and hosting garden groups at his own wonderfully inspirational 2-hectare garden, featured in NZ House & Garden magazine, October 2012.
