Second Nature was established in Auckland by Chris Ballantyne in 1996. In 2004 Janet Clarke became joint owner, adding her business acumen to Chris’ passion for creating beautiful gardens. Today they employ many staff, including creative designers, qualified landscape architects and an experienced team of craftsmen and horticulturists. They work hard to translate inspired design ideas into unique built landscapes or to upgrade existing gardens. Ongoing garden care can be provided to maintain your garden’s beauty and integrity.
We specialise in designing and building bespoke gardens, both small and large. No two gardening or landscaping projects are ever the same, which is why Second Nature is structured to accommodate any given scenario of scale, style or expertise. Our core DESIGN, BUILD and GROW teams can be utilised individually for their specific expertise or in synergy for a seamless service.
We are Auckland based and work outside of Auckland by arrangement. We work with home owners, architects, facility managers and businesses.
