Hi, I'm Gabrielle Sorensen, and I live and work in Stokes Valley, designing gardens since 1996.
I design new gardens or redesign existing gardens for domestic households and commercial properties in Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, Wainuiomata, Eastbourne, Whitby, Aotea, Papakowhai, Plimmerton, Paremata and Mana areas.

I offer a free initial consultation on site to discuss what you need and what you would like to have.

My fee is for the design work. This could be just a planting plan for an existing garden bed or a full garden design with preparation and construction notes and planting plans for part or all of your property.

I also offer one-off onsite consultations for a set fee.

Planting plans come with pictures and full lists for locally sourced plants, horticultural notes and maintenance schedules as required.
