Favourite part of the job: The feeling of satisfaction upon completing a project, after a journey of mental and physical challenges to bring a vision to life.

Andrew was born in the UK and gained his qualification in Landscape Construction/Horticulture at Merrist Wood College, UK. He then went on to run successful landscaping businesses in England and Australia and  won a gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show in  London.

Andrew and his family moved to New Zealand in 2003 and launched Designer Gardens shortly after.

When Andrew is not working hard in the garden he enjoys getting the blood pumping by participating in adventures with the multisport club. He enjoys keeping fit and also then recovering with yoga.
