Nick is a garden designer and landscape architect based in Auckland with over 20 years experience designing, creating and managing private and public gardens in New Zealand and the UK. He is also a design teacher, lecturer and the author of the Planting Design Handbook (published by Routledge) along with many articles on design and planting for magazines and the web.
He has a wealth of experience and knowledge as a planting designer/manager as well as in landscape construction and a special interest in creating beautiful and bio-diverse gardens for plants and wildlife, green walls and roofs, integrating ornamental plants and food growing with ecological gardens. Nick's gardens are 'pollinator paradises' providing foraging and shelter for the many beneficial insects that visit gardens.
Nick also project manages planning issues and resource consent applications, and gives advice on tree care and management, resolving the apparent conflicts between the beauty and ecological value of large trees and the desire for sunlight and space in and around buildings.
