Paul put a lot of thought into designing a landscape plan for our section. He and his team then did a fantastic job on site in some often trying conditions. We are very happy with the result.

Chris McKay, BOP Regional Council

Paul tendered for a large (22,000 plants) native revegetation planting project for a public park. He was very clear on what he would deliver in order to successfully complete the project. As promised, Paul and his team completed the job within budget and ahead of schedule. All the more impressive, given that it was a very challenging site on steep farmland and they encountered pretty awful weather throughout. I would recommend Paul for any future large scale revegetation projects in the rural environment as he is hardworking, reliable and has a real passion for plants and the environment in general.

Paul completed a major overhaul of the patio and garden area on the seaward side of our home. Our thoughts had been to bulldoze the area and start afresh, but with restricted access the use of heavy machinery was not an option. On the initial consultation, having noted our concerns, Paul convinced us to retain the existing pond and adjacent structural features, and to only realign and modernize the paved area, and replant the surrounding gardens. We are extremely pleased with the result and now get much pleasure from our garden his vision, meticulous planning, and attention to detail has transformed an average garden into a stunning oasis.

Donna & Stephen, Tokoroa

Paul completed a large landscaping project at our property. This included: lawn spraying, contouring and re-seeding; a large area of paving; the creation of new gardens with associated edging, planting and rock features; and schist areas with stepping stones. The work was carefully planned, co-ordinated and completed within the time frame. We are extremely pleased with the results and have used our new outdoor area often. We were very impressed with Paul’s energy, ideas, commitment and attention to detail and are more than happy to recommend his work.

Craig Brown, Pongakawa

I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all your great work. With us living in Auckland it’s been so good having you complete numerous differing projects around our lifestyle block to the highest standard. We really appreciate the fact you have also co-ordinated and supervised other trades people when required. Both Julie and I appreciate the time you spend understanding the brief and once you have a good understanding execute the project in hand. If any potential clients request a referee please feel free to forward my details.

In 2015, Paul Hammond transformed my blank-canvas residential section into a space that exhibits all the features I required in a garden including a high-density fruit and vegetable-growing area, an ornamental front garden that utilises a problematic steep slope and a low maintenance utility area. Paul quickly ascertained my need for the development of a fairly low-maintenance garden. He communicated clearly the issues specific to the site, and worked through the design process, from beginning to end, in a professional manner. I have found him to be honest and trustworthy in every way, and would confidently recommend him to friends and family.

Ray Wells, Rotorua

Paul is knowledgeable, friendly, dedicated, meticulous, conscientious, thorough …the list goes on. We are so pleased with the work that Paul has done for us we will continue to engage his services again to do more landscaping for us in the near future. Paul took time to understand our requirements; he helped us with plant/tree selections and his after sales services, WOW, excellent too. Paul takes much pride in his work and goes out of his way to ensure you understand how to maintain and look after the plants and shrubs he has planted.

Daryl & Peter Steel, Lake Rotoehu

Paul recently built a retaining wall around our boatshed, the work done was fabulous, far more than we expected and at a very reasonable price. We will definitely use him for any future landscaping.
