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.
