Entertainers Courtyard

Having someone who listens, takes on board your ideas, then molds them to produce a family entertainment space that exceeds your expectations has made me enjoy my home even more.  Were now proud to share our courtyard and entertain with our friends – A Hughes.

Coastal Garden

My new house at Waiheke seemed like a huge project with all the landscaping to decide upon as well.  Jane visited the site and listened to the things that I felt were important and that I liked.  Jane designed a stunning garden with a lovely flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.  I love that she also incorporated some local stonework and made the garden one that wouldn’t need too much water, which can be short on an island – D King.

Pizza Oven Courtyard

Jane at By-Design Landscape Architects came highly recommended to me by my architect.  We met with Jane initially to describe what our goals were in creating our ultimate outdoor living area and she thoroughly listened, took photos, and asked lots of questions.  At subsequent meetings, she not only presented a to-scale layout with different options but provided a storyboard of colour photographs that included plants, furniture, lighting, and both soft and hardscape options.  Jane served as project coordinator working seamlessly with the contractors every step of the way that including addressing unforeseen issues – L Beattie.

Bali Garden Retreat

The best thing about working with By Design was their ability to engage with us at our level and talk us through to exceptional outcomes. They surprised us with concepts that made so much sense, yet we never would have come up with ourselves.By Design have given us a tropical oasis of calm. The experience starts for visitors as they approach our front door.

The investment in professional design and the ongoing relationship with the By Design team has given us, our extended family and friends, many hours of enjoyment in the garden.

By Design have totally exceeded our expectations in every way.

Engaging By Design was one of the best decisions we made in the whole house renovation project.  – M Templeman

Pool Garden

We were impressed with Jane’s ideas for the space and loved the look of the plans she sent through. Jane had a great vision and made thoughtful use of the sloping area — our friends and family have all said our backyard looks twice the size now that we’ve gone with Jane’s suggestions. Jane is very knowledgeable and was able to recommend everything from which soil and mulch to use, to plant care, to tradies. I still pinch myself every morning. We have recommended Jane to everyone we know and will continue to do so, thanks Jane! – A & M Li

Coastal Courtyard

We have been so impressed with Jane’s vision and we love the result . It has added value to our property, requires little care and has enhanced our enjoyment of our home.  She listened and took into account our planting preferences. She also helps with maintenance tips, to ensure we can keep the planting looking it’s best. We recommend her to everyone – D & R Barlow.
