Here are photos Neville took yesterday while working near Mercy Hospital. The gardens at the hospital we built back in April this year are flourishing and very productive for the hospital’s own kitchen.
Over the last couple of weeks Neville has made sure all our staff are up to date with current first aid training.
As we are not all working in the same premise all day this is important. Now we are up to date and confident if anything should happen at work or in the community will be able to act appropriately thanks to Workplace First Aid Training Ltd who gave an interesting, interactive and enjoyable instruction on Workplace First Aid.
Using a Drone for overhead images of a project is an exciting development in the world of Landscaping. We used this technology to show you the Mercy Hospital Culinary Garden Landscape Design development. See our Recent Project page for the finished result. Thanks to Clive Copeland Photography for your fabulous work.
Welcome to Amy our newest staff member at Neville Stewart Landscaping. Amy will be looking after our accounts & wages and you may get her friendly voice when you call the office. Farewell to Debbie who has diligently been in this role for the last 7 years and always with a smile.
Our recent visits to Kaka Point in Southland have resulted in beautiful Landscape Designs for changing the gardens of some completely renovated homes. These homes look like new builds! Modern and stylish with delicious views to the ocean. They required gardens with an upgrade to suit the new architecture and owners’ requirements and plants chosen for a challenging, windy coastal environment. We utilized a strong NZ native planting theme with sheltered outdoor rooms to give options for extending their family living outdoors and making most of the sunshine and georgeous mild days coastal living has to offer.

Neville Stewart Landscaping were approached to create a design for a new townhouse in Maori Hill. The section had been subdivided off from a house and had some small areas with gardens but most of the paving and garden had been broken up or disturbed by the builders. The owners had also bought the property after the house had been built and there were a number of changes they wanted to make including turning a gym into a garage and the position of the front door. NSL measured the site and took some photos. Simplicity and privacy were the name of the game. Part of the site needed to be used for cars to park and access the new garage while the other part needed to be made into a private outdoor living space. As part of the original design three macrocarpa beams were stood up to form a feature. This feature was very wobbly and didn’t really add much to the landscaping, therefore it was proposed to upcycle these into a sculptural landscaping aspect. A hand drawn image was presented to the client to show how this might look. Around the back of the property and to the north existing gardens will be reused, rebuilt (where necessary) and replanted. The client loves the concept and looks forward to having a low maintenance, easy garden which provides the level of privacy they asked for.
At least for one couple in Fairfield. Neville Stewart Landscaping was called in to rejuvenate an existing garden on a corner section. As part of the design they did not want to lose their Christmas Lights. NSL were able to retain their existing lighting and also allow for further lights. New plantings and seating/pergola area were also created.
