"Braemar Hospital has had the pleasure of working with Higher Ground Landscapes over recent months and has found them to be thoroughly professional. We have just commissioned Higher Ground to complete an internal courtyard within the hospital. Higher Ground are easy to work with and provide a perfect mix of listening to the client, adding value with his design ideas and providing concept plans that fit the brief. Higher Ground appreciated there is a budget involved and ensured his design met this requirement."

Paul Bennett - CEO, Braemar Hospital Ltd, Hamilton

"Higher Ground Landscapes was recommended to us when we were building our own home. We contracted them to complete the landscape installation and were very pleased with the outcome. On that basis, we contracted Higher Ground Landscapes to design and install the landscaping at our new show home on the corner of Airport and Newell Rds. We were impressed by their work standards, communication skills and their adaptability when implementing the work according to the budget. On this basis we are recommending Higher Ground Landscapes to work to Urban Home clients. We are now developing a professional relationship which will benefit our customers by offering a free landscape consultation and concept plan for all our new builds."

"We contacted Higher Ground Landscapes, to produce a full landscape design for our rural property north of Hamilton. We wanted to extend our outdoor living space to provide an area for us to enjoy the rural outlook and entertain guests. We wanted a plan that would work with the house and the surroundings, as well as being suitable for our hilltop location. We loved the plan from the start and – apart from some minor alterations - we engaged Higher Ground Landscapes to complete the project. They project-managed the job from start to finish, and sourced and supervised contractors where necessary. We are extremely pleased with the results, which are all that we envisaged and completed to a very high standard. The project also came in on time and on budget. We were impressed with the way Higher Ground kept us informed throughout the project and we found them easy to work with. The project has further enhanced our property and we would recommend Higher Ground Landscapes to any other person seeking high-quality landscape work."

"Higher Ground Landscapes recently completed a landscape job for us. They were one of many contractors I used in the project. What I most appreciated about Higher Ground was not just the high quality finished job but that they came when they said he would, communicated clearly and actually managed the job so it was completed on time and in budget. They also followed up to check I was happy with the job and made suggestions on how to maintain and maximise results. It was a rare privilege to work with a contractor of this calibre. I have no hesitation in recommending Higher Ground Landscapes."

"We engaged Higher Ground Landscapes to do the landscape design for the garden area of our townhouse in Mount Eden, Auckland. It is a small site with some difficult steep areas. In particular, we wanted to include some raised gardens and a pergola to link the garden area with the house itself. We found Higher Ground extremely obliging, prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. They asked lots of questions about what we thought we wanted and discussed types of preferred plants and foliage. After getting the information, they went away to work on the design. However, they still called to check a few things before producing plans with which we were very happy. We would thoroughly recommend Higher Ground Landscapes for their knowledge, ability, enthusiasm and skills. We are extremely happy with the finished result."

"We happily recommend the landscaping services of Higher Ground Landscapes. They created a garden for us under an existing pergola adjacent to our courtyard. They worked to a plan we’d prepared but which needed some adjustment to be practically implemented. We greatly valued their suggestions on how to make the plan work and, of course, their hard work in making it a reality. They was on site for a week and were very pleasant to employ and work with. The resulting garden has been a total success. We love it, the new-look area looks inviting, good all the time and completed where previously it had looked disjointed and, at many times of the year, scrappy. We've had many compliments on the new look. We'll be asking Higher Ground Landscapes back for future projects."
