My garden is looking gorgeous. Thank you so much for a beautiful front garden that totally compliments my home. The whole neighbourhood stops or slows down when passing by to admire the gorgeous flowers and colours. An awesome job and cost effective too THANK YOU. I absolutely LOVE my garden :-)
Thank you so much for the gorgeous gardening job you did at Tony’s – one very happy son.
Having recently relocated from Dunedin into a property where the garden was literally a blank slate, and wanting to create a sub-tropical paradise, I contacted Karen from Kai Gardens. Following a consultation to establish what I wanted, and what was realistic, Karen arranged everything.
From the removal of an old patio to the arrival of the new soil and plants the process was painless as Karen kept me advised as to progress along the way. I am now anticipating the growth and development of my garden and contemplating the pleasure it is going to bring me.
Karen – the garden is looking AMAZING! Big thanks to you for the transformation.
Yes very happy with what the guys did. So nice to have people working on our house who do what they say they are going to do, come up with solutions and ask for feedback.
Hi Carolyn here from Total Look Blinds. I want to thank you so much for an awesome job at my house. All the customers I have referred to you have been absolutely thrilled with the results and nothing has ever been too much of a problem. I enjoy coming home to a wonderful well maintained garden every month.
I have had very positive experiences working with Karen. Karen has a significant depth of knowledge and experience in the landscape industry. I particularly like Karen’s focus on sustainable and organic gardens.
I have used Karen from Kai Gardens on many occasions for both commercial and residential landscaping work. Karen has an extensive knowledge on ‘all things botanical’ and was able to provide valuable information on implementation and ongoing maintenance.
Her communication and punctuality were fantastic and I have every confidence recommending her services.
Our clients regularly compliment us on the attractiveness of the gardens at our business premises. - Southern Physiotherapy in Papakura -
The gardens are unique, beautifully maintained and eye catching to passers by. We are indebted to Karen from Kai Gardens for this asset she provides for us. We would highly recommend Kai Gardens to anyone seeking garden and landscaping with that something 'extra'.
What I liked most about Karen's approach was she really listened as in the beginning I was not at all sure what I wanted to do with the space.
It seemed like a daunting job to me removing a swimming pool, building a new retaining wall and landscaping aesthetically to suit my property.
Her relaxed, knowledgeable manner certainly made what seemed like a big job much easier.
My brief was, I want to bring the birds in and a place for tranquil reflection at the end of a busy day, which people can enjoy whilst there and looking down from the top deck.
Now a few years on the garden looks as though it has always been there, the flax is flowering this year and the tuis dance through the growth. The trees have fruited, and the rosemary I use for ceremonies. It is perfect and I am so proud to show my family and friends. So from disaster, swimming pool and deck moving down the bank to a back garden that is an expression of us. Thank you Karen. I have and will not have any hesitation referring her and the wonderful service she provides.
Karen has been doing our gardens on our 30 acre farm for the past year. I have found Karen to be very valuable in keeping our gardens in tip top condition. Karen is an honest, knowledgeable and hard working person who I would recommend to anyone who is interested in using her services. Sue & Barry McMiken
While we enjoy lovely gardens, we lack the knowledge and inclination to maintain our "patch" of paradise. Family, business and community limits our time to do any "useful" gardening at home. Karen Fletcher from Kai Gardens has been our gardening saviour (not to mention stress saviour).
When we first met Karen on site, she was interested in how we lived, what we liked and disliked and how we wanted our garden. She listened & queried us without ever making us feel dumb. Her comments of "It could do with a trim" or "it's not in the best spot" gave us a confidence that she was willing to make the best of what had been done in the past without ripping everything out and starting again. She has arranged some new plantings, moved others to better spots in the garden and the place looks great. She also dealt with an the ever-expanding agapanthus problem without any fuss.
Karen is very caring and highly professional. She has quoted all work and listed the plants that she recommends for each area (with web links to images and plant details). Her communication throughout the job is a real feature - we know when they will arrive and how long they will be on site. They turn up on time, do the work without fuss and clean up as well - what more would anyone want.
The results achieved by the Kai Gardens team has been excellent. I now enjoy looking at the garden as it is a source of delight - not a problem to be dealt with! We have known Karen for more than a year and will continue to use her knowledge, contacts (arborists) and team’s skills to maintain our garden for many years to come. Thanks Karen and the Kai Gardens team.
It has been a pleasure to engage Karen to complete our gardening needs. The work was done to a very high standard and great communication to ensure we were happy with the progress. We highly recommend Karen to anyone seeking good workmanship in their treasured gardens.
Karen has looked after our large garden for the past 8 years. She has made excellent suggestions on planting, including many indigenous plants; she has turned our difficult steep bank into an orchard, and has developed our vegetable garden. The flowers and foreshore planting are impeccably maintained and there is always something in flower. We cannot recommend Karen highly enough. Without her help our site would be impossible for us to maintain.
Hi Karen, wow gardens look fab!!! Thank you. I can’t believe you finished it all, the weather was horrendous
Karen and the team at Kai Gardens have done an exceptional job maintaining our landscaping for the last 3 years. Being busy professionals has made it difficult to keep everything looking great, but with Karens monthly maintanence, our gardens are always in top condition.
