Back in 1978 a young kiwi bloke with a green thumb and a vision of grand gardens bought a contractor’s barrow, a sturdy pair of gumboots and a strong spade – and went into business. This fellow was Graham Cleary, director and owner of Natural Habitats. Not afraid to get his hands dirty, Graham rolled up his sleeves and grew Natural Habitats into one of the largest vertically integrated landscape design, construction and specialist garden maintenance companies in the South Pacific. We are passionate about landscape. We are relied upon to build and care for the landscapes of many of our country’s iconic projects. Based in Auckland, there are local offices in Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch.
Among our staff are experienced horticulturists, gardeners, arborists, landscape architects, landscapers, environmentalists and project managers – a total of more than 100 fine people. They revel in being a part of an efficient team, adding creativity to concepts and solutions to problems.
Our Values guiding our decisions, behaviours and actions towards achieving that Vision are:
“PEOPLE, TRUST, EXCELLENCE, BALANCE”
Natural Habitats is renowned for the quality of its work and recognised for its award winning landscape design, build and care. Over the past three decades we have won more awards than any other landscape company in New Zealand.
