What Our Clients Are Saying About Us…
“We are very rapt with the design – thank you both, to yourself and Neville, for giving us ideas we would have never have thought of ourselves. We are so happy we now have something to work with and can now walk into a nursery with a purpose, rather than having no idea where to start! We love the natural, relaxed feel of the garden and feel our house and garden will blend in well with other native plantings we have growing around us. The advice on what to plant and where is invaluable to us, we really had no idea what to plant with what, and what will survive in our coastal environment, so again, you have giving us such great guidance we are ready to get going, putting plan into place.” Fiona and Glen, Kaka Point.
“A huge challenge lay in front of us to landscape our newly built on section consisting of rock, clay, steepness and our fair share of wind. On referral we rang Neville Stewart Landscaping. Neville and staff member Chantal arrived at the property with pen and paper in hand and said, “we can do this”.
Some ideas were discussed, to plant Natives was mooted. After some thought both Allan and I felt we wanted ‘more colour’ in the garden. Neville obliged and always took time to discuss what would be suitable before sourcing the plants from various Nursery’s. Once the hard landscaping was finished Neville’s team began the planting process. To
watch the landscape change for the better has been a pleasure. It has been a long challenging project but well worth it in the end, thank you Neville, it is going to look great.” Allan & Pam Chisholm
“Neville and his team transformed our section into an area with indoor outdoor/flow. They designed and produced a stylish deck and planted a beautiful rock garden with native plants that will grow and flourish over the next 20 years or longer. Neville chose the plants to suit each perspective in the garden and created a beautiful relaxing space for us. He explored our wishes and gave us options until we agreed on a plan. At completion of the work, he explained the requirements to care for each plant. We are delighted with the result.” Mary Fennessy
“I am now enjoying a garden I have imagined having for years! When Neville came for an initial consultation on how to breath new life into a somewhat neglected garden I told him I wanted it to be relatively easy care but still with a traditional woodland look. What I have now has exceeded my expectations, with new broader paths that make moving around the garden much easier an a variety of plants and trees that offer interest in every season. The work was done quickly and efficiently and I was regularly updated and consulted. The laying of the paths was completed during the steady rain that heralded the June 2015 floods and in the morning I got up to find the paths covered with old curtains which had been laid there at 4 am to try and prevent any potential damage. A service that went beyond the call of duty!
I still get a thrill when I look out at my new garden and look forward to watching it develop. Thanks to Neville and Richard and their team for a great job!” Christine Bennett
“…when we returned to Dunedin and bought a 1920’s house we contacted Neville to help with clearing and replanting a grossly overgrown drive. Neville revised the planting scheme and his skills as a plantsman came to the fore in his selection in sourcing of new plants.
After alterations to the house, we asked Neville to undertake extensive changes to the garden also. the site was challenging due to complex slopes. the work undertaken included making paths, laying paving, erecting stone retaining walls and a glass house, building raised vegetable beds and planting of shrubs and grasses.
We are delighted with the final result and we particularly enjoyed working with Neville as he was prepared to incorporate our ideas , and improve on them!” L Gillespie
“Your landscaping work and design helped us with the process of selling 60 Pacific St last year. Thanks very much again. I am only sorry we did not get the benefit of living in the house after the new design was completed ourselves!” Tim Mehigan
The makeover of our yard has exceeded our expectations. Keep doing what you are doing — involving the client in all facets of the project. From the first contact the vision, planning and execution have been to professional standards and our experience has been a delight.” Bill and Linda Feather, Brookside Place, Mosgiel
Richard’s expertise and advice was much appreciated, and he and his hardworking, friendly team were a pleasure to do business with. To a reasonable budget, in three days, they did some bush management, path construction and maintenance, and transformed our seriously out-of-control and difficult sloping section into a manageable property. They removed piles of weeds and recovered plants and shrubs we didn’t even realize were there. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a firm to do a good professional job.” Jane Hollebon, The Cove
“Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for the work done over the last couple of days. It was a pleasure having the team here; they were friendly and did an excellent job of clearing & tidying the gardens. We’re very happy with the result – it’s a huge improvement! We’ll definitely contact you again for any future garden landscaping projects.” Amanda and Allan
