Custom Garden Design

Design is not just what it LOOKS and FEELS like, design is how it works – Steve Jobs. We can’t agree more! Without losing sight of the practicality of a design, our in-house designers create award-winning design concepts, packed with creativity and the latest innovations from the industry. Relying on actual landscaping experience in the field, our design team knows how to best find the ideal balance between function and form.
This knowledge is captured in the concept design plan, and that is why design plans are essential to successfully bring your dream garden to life. Our in-house design team stays involved throughout the entire process of the project to ensure that no detail will be missed from the start of getting an idea on to paper, until installing all of the elements of your new dream garden.

Unique Design Approach

Luijten Landscaping offers a range of different design concept plans, depending on your needs. In order to decide which level of plan you would like, at the start of the design project we would like to meet with you and visit your garden. After our initial meeting, we will agree on the type of concept plan you would like. After signing up for this design plan, we will thoroughly research the surroundings of your landscape, confirm our dimensions, and ensure we have a real understanding of the “feeling of the place”. Then, we will get the creativity flowing and carry out a concept design plan.

After a first concept design draft is completed we will get together to go over the plans. There are three answers to a design, Yes, No and WOW! Obviously, we always aim for the last response. Taking it further from there, we will finalise the design plans and deliver the end-product.
Would you like to hear more about the design packages we offer, feel free to drop us a line or contact us for more information.


They trust us every single day

Robert and his team have never failed to provide the required synergy of time, quality and price on our contracts, which is why Luijten Landscaping remains to this day our preferred landscaping subcontractor years after originally using their services.

Trevor and I are both extremely pleased with your landscaping works. It certainly meets all our expectations, and it has been a pleasure to have you all work on our project and design and build our vision for a relaxing backyard to enjoy.

Bruce & Robin

Just want to thank you for fitting us in before Christmas. The team has done a great job of cutting and trimming back where necessary. It is exactly a year since you put in our front garden and I showed the team a photo of how it looked a year ago. Boy has it grown into a lovely garden!

The discovery garden is awesome!! It is such a clever use of the limited space and I can’t believe what a difference it makes to such a dull unused corner of our playground. The children are also very much in awe of this new space and lots were using it yesterday.

Robert was great to deal with before, during and after our big project. We had a difficult site and had to work together to find some solutions to tricky problems encountered during the 10 month project. All the Luijten team on our job were fabulous so a big shout out to Jonas (PM), Danny, Alberto, Kyle, Rhyse. Communication is everything on a big job like ours and Luijten’s delivered. Now my garden is completely done, I actually miss having the guys around.

Your workers have just left, and we want to let you know how extremely happy we are with the way the maintenance team topped the trees out the front . It looks great, and they left the place super tidy.

Once again we really appreciate the landscaping that Robert & the team undertook for us. They took our vision of a relaxing semi formal outdoor living room and turned it into so much more. I still get a buzz and much pleasure out of the garden and the changes throughout the changing seasons.

Sandi and Will Baker

We would like to thank the team from Luijten Landscaping for doing such a great job on our new lawn and retaining wall. From the very professional first quote which Greg supplied to the last check completed by Greg, we could not fault the team of guys working here. They were on time, were pleasant and polite, worked tirelessly and actively listened to exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend Luijten to anyone thinking of landscaping their property. It is often a large investment to get landscapers in so you want to know you are getting a professional company to complete the work. We found that company. Thank you to Gregg, Ellis and Tim to name but a few.

Redoubt North School has contracted Luijten Landscaping for the past four years. They have completely transformed the school grounds with both redesigning of the gardens and maintenance of them. A major design project has just been completed of a landscaped area/gardens in honour of Hon. Mr George Hawkins. There was considerable consultation regarding the design and its ever-changing requirement. Both Robert and the team worked closely with myself and the architect to ensure all parties were involved in its development. Budgets were adhered to and timeframes were met for completion. I have found Robert and his team to be approachable and always willing to assist the school, often with short notice. Anyone wishing to view our school grounds/gardens are welcome to make an appointment at the school on (09) 263 9060. I would recommend Luijten Landscaping without hesitation.
