Cosy, Urban Hideaway Wins First Place!

Landscaping Consultant: Monique Nielsen, Auckland Central

With a built-in BBQ area, outdoor fireplace, cosy inset lighting, and a rustic spa pool, it’s easy to see why Auckland Central Landscaping Consultant Monique Nielsen’s design pulled off the first win of the year. She’s managed to create an urban oasis that is both private and open at the same time and offers outdoor living at a luxurious level. Congrats to Monique and the team!

Lush Backyard Retreat Scores a Silver Medal

Landscaping Consultants: Louise Reeve and Logan Bridgens, North Shore

North Shore duo Louise Reeve and Logan Bridgens delivered an impressive transformation that awarded them second place. They took a sprawling backyard that was completely overgrown and turned it into a lush but functional landscape without losing any of the abundant tropical greenery that makes it unique.
