What our clients say....

We recently completed an extensive landscaping project designed by a high-end Auckland landscape architect with plant specimens sourced from a ‘reputable' West Auckland supplier. Due to a move overseas for employment we contracted the supplier to shape and maintain the garden to achieve our vision. Over the course of the next 18 months the supplier proved unreliable, did not follow our instructions, failed to generate our vision and proved unjustifiably expensive.

We became aware of Denise Hammond, DHD Landscapes, who, after a short period of time walking through our garden and hearing our vision, we contracted her to care for the garden. We chose Denise as she exhibited an extensive knowledge, she listened to and understood our needs and radiated passion for what she does. Over the next 18 months the transformation of the garden from what it was, towards our vision, was progressively achieved. 

Denise and her team continue to work our garden as if it were their own. We are in regular communication, we receive monthly reports and photographs of work done and garden progress, their charges are very reasonable and they are routinely offering suggestions for improvement. They have got to know the garden and understand its environment and microclimates. Thus the suggestions they do make are enduring and continue to transform the garden. 

The DHD Landscape team are delightful. They are all very respectful, energetic and enthusiastic. We have every confidence in them working our property whilst we are overseas and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for knowledgeable, realistic, economical, honest advice and trustworthy service.

Denise has transformed our steep grassed clay bank that was difficult to mow into useable areas with the steeper slopes planted. We are looking forward to seeing how the different areas develop as the plantings establish over the next couple of years and areas such as the edible garden become fruitlful. We love the soft natural lines created by use of keystone and rocks to create the path and edging. We are very pleased with the way Denise has been able to combine elements we wanted with her vision of how to use the contours of the site and create a garden that naturally flows down the hill and integrates with the native reserve at the bottom.

The team at DHD Landscapes have transformed our wild overgrown garden into something special and have helped us keep it that way. We're incredibly happy with the results, and would highly recommend their work to anyone.

" I met with Kararaina at my property to explain in general terms my requirement which was to improve the appearance of the gardens and lawn and to ensure an attractive setting for my son's wedding. Kararaina quickly came up with the concept and was clearly enthusiastic about the job. She provided me with sufficient confidence that I didn't require a detailed plan and I was happy to rely on DHD Landscape Design to deliver within the quote. The project was completed to the agreed time line and there was good communication throughout. The result has been outstanding, the garden is admired by visitors and people walking past and I am now using DHD Landcape Design to undertake periodic maintenance."

"Can't rate Denise highly enough. She listened to what we wanted from our design and came up with something that both fits our budget and exceeds our expectations. Everything was done in a timely fashion and to top it off she is a lovely person to deal with. We have no hesitations recommending Denise to anyone looking for a designer."

"I have been using them for more than 3 years on my homes and rental property. The communication with Denise has been first rate. She has been able to take my ideas and make them a reality. I love my garden! And the decking is perfect. It is just what I wanted. I absolutely highly recommend DHD Landscape Design."

"I found DHD Landscape Design to be extremely professional. The quote was totally reasonable and communication was efficient and appropriate. The only reason I didn't use them in the end was that my family stepped up with offers of both plants and labour to help me out. I would certainly contact their business again in the future, and recommend them to others."

"Denise's service was absolutely wonderful, right from the initial quote through to the end of the job. She understood what my vision was for my garden, came up with lots of other good ideas and options, and kept in mind my budget requirements. She was reliable, friendly and approachable throughout, and the rest of the team were great too. I am very happy with the result, and would not hesitate to use DHD Landscapes again in the future, should the need arise. Thanks so much, I no longer have a jungle, but a lovely, easy-to-keep oasis!!"

Thank you!

"We would highly recommend DHD Landscapes for any landscaping project! From our first meeting to the final finished transformation Denise totally 'got' what we were looking for. Her flexibility and willingness to incorporate last minute changes to the plans was great and the landscaping team couldn't have worked harder - especially when the rain turned the work area into a slippy, slidey mud bath! Ongoing communication during the project was excellent and any queries or problems were quickly sorted out. Our son now has a wonderful play area and has had many happy hours of entertainment in a part of the garden that previously was totally unused. Thanks DHD for a job well done!"

Best regards,

"We would highly recommend DHD landscapes for any landscaping project. They are fantastic to deal with, competitive rates, very flexible, with friendly and very hard working staff . Our project was a large one, approx 1 acre of new sub tropical gardens, Denise came up with an amazing planting plan for our property and the end result is nothing short of breath taking. Thank you for creating our own piece of paradise. "

"Denise designed and installed a stone and paver pathway for us, and we had a large sloped garden area tidied and replanted at the same time. Denise had some great ideas and put together a design we were very happy with. The work was done on time and under budget with any issues being resolved in a timely and satisfactory manner. Communication was very good. The boys (and girl) worked extremely hard, were polite and tidy. We are extremely happy with the result and have used them subsequently…"

Mark


"We are extremely happy with the work completed by the DHD Team. The boys, Jack and Aaron were great workers, a pleasure to have about, always polite and respectful, and left absolutely no mess, paths etc were all cleaned before they left the property, and all rubbish taken away. Would have no hesitation in recommending DHD's work to anyone."

Pam


"DHD Landscape Design Ltd gave excellent service. Their workers Jack & Aaron worked so hard & without a break & did an amazing job on a very overgrown & out of control garden. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I can very highly recommend DHD Landscape Design & their hard working staff to anyone in the future. They were outstanding & it was a pleasure to pay them."

Joy


"The DHD guys were awesome. I had let things get seriously out of control in my urban jungle and they sorted it out 2 days. I have re-booked them and will use them on a regular maintenance program. Very happy with the work"

"We were very happy dealing with Denise who kept within our budget (which wasn\'t very much) and timeframe. Some of the works were kindly discounted, and the communication was great! Thank you to you and the team Denise, for your time and extreme patience with us. A big thumbs up to you :D"

"Denise was extremely helpful when dealing with a difficult tenant and not knowing when we were allowed to access the property, she communicated well, arrived and completed the two jobs when she said she would and the prices I thought were very reasonable. Highly recommend & a big thankful for helping me present my property well for sale!"

Paula

Leane


"Excellent consultation before the job and follow-up on how things were looking later. All beyond the call of duty. There was also special attention on suitable plant advice and efforts to locate the plants at a good price. Highly recommended and would use the company again. "

Judit


"I rate Denise very highly. We had a few initial meetings and I changed my mind on the final plan a few times during the course of our meetings, as frustrating as it probably was she handled my flip flopping very well! She kept in mind my budget and was able to provide alternatives to my ideas that may not have worked, or fitted the budget. We did go over the initial budget quoted, but that was due to changes/additions I requested. There is only one thing I can fault, and thats not Denise…"

"We first used DHD Landscapes to design & build a play garden for our son in Aug 2008. From start to finish the process was easy & hassle free. Great communication, ideas & plans from Denise every step of the way. We now have an ongoing relationship with DHD who now maintain our large section at very reasonable rates. They always turn up when they say they will, are tidy & efficient and keep in touch if there are any problems or queries. I have no hesitation whatsoever…"
