Rob’s love for plants began when he inherited his grandfather’s cacti collection at the age of thirteen. Rob would often help his grandad in his glass house and his mum around the garden. Since then, Rob has honed his skills and knowledge in New Zealand and also Australia, where he operated his own landscape garden design business in Sydney.
Rob was raised in Nelson and attended Polytech in the evening before he left school to complete his Diploma in Horticulture and Turf Management, which he passed with flying colours. He was then provided with the opportunity to further his qualifications and was taken on by Nelson City Council as an apprentice gardener and this provided him with the opportunity to put his Diploma into practice.
Qualified with a Diploma in Horticulture and Turf Management and over 34 years of hands-on experience, Rob brings a wealth of ideas and excellent customer care. With a perceptive eye for detail and a focus on catering for each individual’s needs, you can be sure that your garden will flourish for years to come and be a place of pure enjoyment.
Rob has an amazing talent of transforming a bland space into a work of art and his plant knowledge is extensive. Seeing a job through from the start whilst engaging the customer throughout the transformation process, taking their wishes and turning them into a reality, is what he excels at.
In his free time, Rob enjoys spending time with his family, mountain bike riding and surfing. His love of the outdoors reflects in his work.
