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.

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.

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.

Greg – thank you for all your teams and your hard work on our project from start to finish.

We are very happy with how the job looks and wish to compliment the whole team on their work: Steven, in particular, provided very good customer Service. We look forward to winter to see the drainage in our garden working.

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.

Congratulations on winning this wonderful award for the newly created gardens, well done, it makes me very proud. Our beautiful gardens do make our school standout, thanks to Dave’s foresight and passion for outdoor spaces and your amazing talent and creativity as a landscaping company.

Euroclass have used Luijten Landscaping for over 5 years and found them professional and pleasant to work with. Prior to project commencement, the Luijten team provides excellent advice on plant selection and durability. On completion, they leave the project immaculate. The success of a landscaper is how the development looks in several years time and Robert along with Angela and the team prove that quality landscaping is money well spent.
