Green With Envy
What inspires me in landscaping is seeing a blank canvas where others see there’s nothing to achieve I see an awesome place to create an amazing outdoor living space for my clients. Walking away from a job and knowing my clients will spend as much time as they possibly can in their outdoor home because it’s amazing and suits their every need.
I've been landscaping for 15 years on small and large scale sites, commercial and residential properties. I’ve landscaped a number of award winning gardens as judged through the Ellerslie flower show and LANZ. I offer a very professional and personal service, I am able to implement designs from any designer and also provide designs of my own. My service is tailored to the individual and the site and conditions on site. I listen what you want/need form your garden and involve you at every step to ensure you get what you want.
We offer a 12-month workmanship guarantee on all of our hard landscaping.
This year for the walk of the gardens I am planning a formal garden, this will include raised masonry block walls, which will be planted with formal plants including buxus hedging, standards and under planting.
GreenWork is a small landscaping and garden maintenance company with a focus on minimising our environmental footprint and that of our customers. We are certified Carbon Neutral and aim to use as many organic and sustainable products as we can.
Geoff Rickerby, the founder of GreenWork has 10 years experience in the horticulture and landscape industries. He was working as a Greenkeeper at a top New Zealand golf course when he came to realise that turf could be cared for without the need for large doses of petrochemical fertilisers and sprays and decided to found GreenWork. Geoff is NZQA certified to Level 4 in both Landscaping and Horticulture. His background includes a two year Landscaping OE in London for LandscapeOne where he won a gold medal in the 2004 Hampton Court Flower Show.
When he's not working, you can find Geoff on running trails around Auckland. He races for the Pakuranga Club and most recently placed third in the Kerikeri Half Marathon.
GreenWork aims to create simple and low maintenance spaces for our clients. For the show this year, our designer Ainsley Chapman has created a simple yet functional plot that incorporates sustainable and edible features!
