Why work for Natural Habitats?

Natural Habitats is the result of a young man who loved being outdoors and had a hands-on approach to everything he did. 

In 1978 our founder Graham Cleary started digging holes on a gap year with a mate and since then he’s grown Natural Habitats into New Zealand’s most awarded and largest landscaping company.  

Natural Habitats offers the full range of landscaping services from design to construction and maintenance.  

We have over 170 teammates across Northland, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown covering all aspects of commercial and residential landscaping.  

We exist to create environmental solutions for a better tomorrow and are proud to be the leading provider of green roofs and green walls in the country.  

We’ve achieved a lot in the last 40 years and we’re excited to see what the next 40 have in store for us and our landscapes.
