Claire Talbot - Proud Founder and Garden Designer

With a background in education and creative businesses, Claire brings a welcome balance of pragmatism and genuine creativity to garden design on Auckland’s North Shore. She holds a BSc Hons degree in Psychology and Management, Certificate in Home Garden Design as well as receiving the NZ Gardener Award for Top Student in 2015.

Claire co-authored the book Relax and Grow Rich with Mike Hutcheson. It’s about deciding what you want to be rich in, rather than how rich you want to be, and finding ways to live a successful, satisfying and sustaining life. 

For Claire, landscaping and garden design provides all of these rewards. Her particular passion is combining different textures, leaf shapes and leaf sizes to create compositions clients love. Although the demand-driven growth of the business absorbs much of her time, Claire still likes to meet as many clients as possible. 

She enjoys contributing to the initial creative conversations and remaining in touch with clients while passing the detailed design and implementation to specialists in the team.

Naomi Gray landscape designer

Naomi Gray - Senior Garden Designer

Naomi was a graphic designer for more than a decade before following her heart into landscape design. She holds diploma qualifications in both fields.

Naomi’s graphic design experience allows her to easily visualise and demonstrate how the elements of a garden will work together to provide the desired look and feel. She can also quickly sketch accurate artist impressions to explain or explore landscaping options with her clients.

By definition, design thinking is about collaborating to find creative solutions to problems or challenges. It’s an approach Naomi particularly enjoys and it begins with understanding how the space will be used, the desired maintenance levels and each client’s preferences for things like colours, textures, plant types, and materials.

Maisy Conway - Garden Designer

Growing up in a small Scottish isle and moving around the world throughout her life has instilled in Maisy an eye for colour, unique plant combinations & a cosmopolitan feel in her garden designs.  The current world situation has luckily kept Maisy with us in New Zealand, where she enjoys working with each client to achieve something unique for their outside space.
