Middleton Rd Remuera

This family garden provides a private retreat from a very urban environment, and a green outlook from the upper levels. The house is one half of a duplex designed by Jane Aimer, Mike Dowsett, and Lindley Naismith. The architecture fits comfortably with the adjacent older townhouses, and the planting, a blend of native and exotic, echoes elements in the neighbouring gardens. All houses are built near the street edge maximising space for outdoor living at the rear. Unique qualities include private access through the house and a sliding panel in the courtyard wall, allowing the space to be opened to the neighbouring courtyard. All four neighbouring gardens are designed to interlink, enhancing the strong sense of community.

I have a love of natural landscapes and ecology and this inspires my garden designs.

I firstly consider the characteristics of the wider landscape and design the garden to fit into this. In an urban setting this has different implications to a natural coastal or rural setting.  I have a particular interest in NZ native trees and plants and love to incorporate them into my designs. I enjoy designing coastal gardens and have been involved in coastal restoration at Whangapoua for several years.

I enjoy designing livable and productive gardens that work well for the clients, fit in with the architectural style of their house and the local environment, and that will thrive in that environment.
