About Us

We keep some of Auckland’s most beautiful places, well… beautiful. 

Here at Landscape Solutions, we are a team of landscapers who have been in the business since 1993. We officially established ourselves in Auckland in 2017, and since that time, we have seen phenomenal growth in our team and the skills of our people. 

We are specialists in commercial landscape maintenance. That means everything from commercial garden care and mowing to sports turf and golf course management, biosecurity services and irrigation management. We are where you go when you need landscaping done well. 

When you work with us, you get awe-inspiring open spaces that contribute to the health and wellbeing of our future generations. You get a property that sends your customers the right message about your business. You get parks that draw the eye with their vibrant annuals, streetscapes that neat and tidy, and large sporting fields that draw a crowd. Our work is vast. And exciting.

A message from our Managing Director

A message from Tim, our Managing Director

The Landscape Solutions story began back in 1993. Since then, I’ve had the joy of growing a business in an industry that I continue to be so passionate about. It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to come to work every day and be surrounded by professional, skilful and dedicated individuals.

We have been extremely fortunate to build and maintain some pretty iconic projects across Australia and New Zealand. This is something I never could have envisaged all those years ago. It’s thanks to the passionate people that work so hard day in and day out to deliver and present projects for our loyal clients that we are a success today. 

As we look forward to another chapter of growth and innovation, I would like to thank our team, our subcontractors and suppliers, and of course our clients for entrusting us to create and maintain these great places. We’ll continue to set the standard in commercial landscaping services. 

We don’t shy away from a challenge

Our commitment to creating great places runs deep, and we’ve faced some incredibly challenging tasks in our time. 

Take the Ballast Point Park for example. We completed this ground-breaking project while facing an incredibly quick turnaround – and we beat it. In fact, we finished the project six months ahead of schedule. Our client was ecstatic and the public had a wonderful new reserve six months early.

Don’t have a blank canvas to work with? That’s ok. We’re satisfied when our clients are happy. So when our client is stoked about the transformation of his school oval from a local level playing field standard to a world-class surface, we’re happy too. This school sports field is now one of the benchmarks for sporting fields in Australia. 

Closer to home though, as a major city, Auckland draws in thousands of visitors on a daily basis. In particular, that makes our work for Auckland Council all the more important, ensuring landscapes are safe and immaculately presented for the public. Maybe you live in Auckland, maybe you work there. Maybe you’ve simply spent time there holidaying. Whatever the case, you’d be hard-pressed to visit Auckland and not notice some of the stunning public spaces we look after dotted around the city and its outskirts.

We’re a family

We may be a large company but we treat each other like family. We have fun at work in a team environment, and we always produce the best for our customers.  Since the day we first opened our doors, our vision has always been to maintain our humility, embrace opportunities and to look after our people and our customers. 

We are genuinely committed to the success of our customers. It’s what we believed in from the start and why we are where we are today. We create great places, with and for great people

We've been creating great places since 1993. It's been a blast.

A commitment to safety

There’s no higher priority than the safety of our people, our clients and the public. Everybody has the right to expect to go home at the end of day safely. From our leadership teams to our teams on the ground, we firmly believe that we are all responsible for supporting and promoting our safety values and the need to Just Be Safe.

We continue to refine and implement processes to ensure a safer workplace for all. Our stringent training procedures are in place to ensure all team members are aware of our processes, and we hold regular refresher sessions to keep safety top of mind.

We focus on quality

A quality delivery for our clients is absolutely crucial in our industry. We make every effort to ensure you receive results of the highest quality, whether you are our client or a member of the public.

Quality assurance is about confidence. You can be confident in our ongoing quality assurance program, and be comfortable in knowing that our staff and subcontractors are all well versed in their collective responsibilities. We don’t shy away from difficult conversations and we’ll be upfront about any issues that do arise.

Protecting our environment

The environment is key

We are at a crucial point when it comes to the health of our natural environment and the future of our planet. This is a cause we care deeply about at Landscape Solutions, and as such take our environmental responsibilities very seriously.

We recognise that our work has a direct impact on the environment and as such are always looking to adopt new and sustainable methods of working. For example, to reduce our environmental footprint we’ve adopted environmentally-friendly equipment on a number of our sites, and we’ve implemented where possible steam weed control methods.

Giving back to the community

At Landscape Solutions, our involvement with the community extends beyond our standard day-to-day work. We believe in giving back, whether that’s to those less fortunate, for cultural purposes, or in the way of volunteering time and skills to protect our environment. Our aim is to play a role in creating lasting change, and be a positive impact in our communities. Some of the causes we currently support are:

Pa Harakeke

Pa Harakeke Flax Weaving Group

In Maori culture, Pa Harakeke is a metaphor for family. The flax plant is used to resemble this with its central base of growth and many off-shoots resembling members of the family. A local Maori cultural group utilise a flax grove in the Kaipatiki local board area for traditional flax weaving. They make baskets from the leaves which are used as bassinets for newborns within the local community.

Our team at Landscape Solutions have supported this by defining the grove with garden edging and keeping the flax gardens mulched to allow for easy gathering of the flax by members. We maintain these areas without the use of agrichemicals as a commitment to keeping the flax as pure as possible.

Mt Victoria Cemetery

Mt Victoria Cemetery

Gail Lyons is a local hero in the Devonport area.

Gail spends every Monday at the Mt Victoria cemetery where she looks after the graves and cemetery grounds to preserve this heritage-listed site. The cemetery is the resting place of Devonport and Auckland’s pioneers.

Our team support Gail and her friends with waste removal, materials and tools, and additional labour support in Autumn when the mature trees in the cemetery drop their leaves.

Volunteer Group Support 

The Landscape Solutions team regularly engage with local volunteer groups to support the great work these local heroes deliver within our communities.

The team provide materials such as hand tools, waste bags and plants for clean-up initiatives as well as removing the waste afterwards. All green waste is recycled through our partnership with GreenCycle, an Auckland based start up company that recycles all organic waste into a high-grade product called ecoMulch.
