Chris will initially meet you onsite for an initial consultation. Once the ideas of both the client and Chris have been agreed upon, Chris will do a detailed working drawing. This will then sent to the client for consideration and any necessary changes can be made. Chris can develop a detailed planting plan if the clients wish. Chris can also undertake full project management with quotes for hard landscaping obtained, discussed and agreed with the client and then supervising the construction as required.

Chris designs gardens for clients who have just purchased a section and want to orient their house plans to the proposed garden or will give a new direction to an established garden. Commercial clients also commission Chris to design and supervise the construction of workplace projects.


Chris Paul was recommended to us in 1988. He re-designed our 1.5 acre garden in Ridge Lane to the stage of it being accepted into the Taranaki Rhododendron Festival in the late 1990s. Now we are in Frankleigh Park, and starting with a “clean sheet” in 2003, Chris designed the garden including the practical bits (driveway, paths, clothesline etc) to befit the nature of the section. He progressively developed the planting over 10 years, encompassed some of our ideas, and met our criteria that it also be relatively easy care. With not only good design, but great growing conditions in New Plymouth, we now enjoy a place of beauty and tranquility with colours and shapes changing through the seasons.

Having had a successful relationship with Chris over the past 25years we have no hesitation in recommending him to all homeowners seeking down to earth practical advice and a design which meets their expectations.
