Landscape and garden design: Auckland-wide
Ideas, planning and a creative response to every garden

The value of design for small or large landscaping projects

Creative garden design can make the difference between an ordinary garden and one that is inspiring, even spectacular – a garden that stimulates the senses, surprising and delighting you season after season. Second Nature offers thoughtful and imaginative design, effective planning and implementation, as well as clear communication, which are the foundations of any successful landscaping project, large or small.

How you can work with Second Nature: Auckland-wide

We have a proven track record of successfully responding to a wide range of different budgets, styles and site requirements with creative, cost-effective and practical solutions. Second Nature specialises in facilitating this landscape garden design process.

Our in-house design service harnesses the creative talent of our garden design team. Use them to design a planting scheme, a single element such as a deck, patio or driveway, a focal point such as an outdoor fireplace or a water feature or for the complete redesign of your garden. Their design expertise is complemented by the depth of knowledge and experience provided by our landscape construction and horticulture teams.

As an alternative, we can recommend other professional landscape designers and landscape architects with whom we regularly create Auckland gardens. We enjoy successful working relationships with many of New Zealand’s most capable and talented independent garden designers. Each designer brings their unique specialist knowledge, understanding and landscaping skills to the garden design process. The choice of garden designer is up to you.
