garden design

“The garden, by design, is concerned with both the interior and the land beyond the garden.”

At Creative intentions we start at the kerb and design your journey through your home and around your property to realise your living experience as you imagined it.

Your garden is an extension of your home and every care is taken to coordinate your property and enable you to enjoy it and grow with it.

Existing gardens or bare grounds are fully catered for and we will guide you through the whole process.

If your development is a new build our early involvement will allow a more seamless integration between home and garden.

Rolleston Garden


The clients property is a new build in a recently completed sub-division within the town of Rolleston. The goal of the design is to create kerb appeal and provide a clear direction to the front door for customers to the home business and guests to the family. Due to limited driveway & garage space the family needed extra storage space at the rear of the property for a trailer, this also dictated the need for a large side gateway and clear pathway to the utility area.

Other features of the design include:

  • Bespoke letterbox with removable business signpost
  • Spike lights to illuminate front path
  • Two rear paved patios separated by a garden bed and feature sculpture
  • Raised vegetable gardens with space for grape vines
  • Space and services allocated for future spa
  • Gravelled utility area with space for a trailer, shed and chicken coup
  • Timber frame and wire mesh chicken run screened behind shrub planting
  • Planting is to be easy care and fragrant with a healthy mix of natives and exotics.



    English style garden in Prebbleton


    This property is a newly built bespoke dream home for the client. The driveway is designed to offer a grand approach to the home through an avenue of trees, then disappear behind the house where the main entrance is sited, in order to provide uncluttered views across the gardens from the house and an impressive vista from your approach.

    The property is surrounded by shelter belts and has a large shed/workshop to the rear and will include a large natural pond to the west.

    There is a private area to the rear which includes a swimming pool that leads off the clients craft room, and to the east of the main patio is a private cloistered garden with raised planters that will create a protected micro-climate.
