Here is what some of our clients have to say...
"Sandra Batley from Flourish has worked up a design from scratch for a new build on a waterfront property in Karaka for me. She has done a fabulous job, with a brief for an "all native" garden, in the constraints of a small space, but needing areas for children to play and for entertaining. She is very creative, and her work complements the contemporary architecture of our build, and the coastal site. I would strongly recommend her.

"Sandra Batley from Flourish has been fantastic to deal with. We engaged her to produce a planting and landscape concept plan. We had some ideas, which Sandra was able to translate into a plan, and she also had a number of excellent ideas herself that we have chosen to go ahead with. Sandra is very efficient. She advised us when we could expect to receive the plan and she delivered it on time. All communications with Sandra about the plan have been answered promptly. We cannot recommend Sandra highly enough. She is very skilled at what she does and she has been a pleasure to deal with."
Fiona King, Remuera

Ian Worthy, Henderson Heights
"Sandra is very easy to communicate with, is a great listener and has a wealth of knowledge to turn your ideas into reality. She has a thorough, well documented process and delivered every step of the way. The first stage of the project has just been completed by Down2Earth Landscaping Ltd who Sandra recommended. Darryl and Chris have done a great job and I have no hesitation in recommending them. Sandra has sourced excellent quality plants and has created a fabulous new instant garden. Highly recommended!"
Jude Thomason, Ponsonby
"Sandra was great to work with and was always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions or concerns we had!! The contractors she recommended have been great and we are really looking forward to the completion of the project. It will really transform our unusable back yard from drab to fab and make it a place we will enjoy being. We would definitely use her again and cant praise her efforts highly enough!!"

"Sandra is the perfect professional, we got straight down to business and she advised on all aspects of my garden with my limited budget in mind. I loved her ideas and her attention to detail, plus she came back on the first working day with the plan. I'd highly recommend her to anyone stuck for ideas, she was perfect."
Rachel D' Cruz, Mt Albert
"Sandra has recently drawn up a concept plan for our pool and garden area. The area was small so we really wanted it to look balanced and not all jammed in. Sandra listened to what we wonted and came up with a modern design which we absolutely love. We have shown it to a few friends who now are using Sandra to do their plan. Sandra was affordable worked to our budget. She came up with a plan that we could never of done on our own. Totally recommend her, would definately use her again if we ever move house!"
Simonne Powell, Manurewa
"Sandra was great to work with. Her cheerful, professional approach coupled with her wide knowledge of plants made the whole process of designing our new garden so much easier. She initially discussed some suitable design ideas with us and then incorporated some of our own suggestions to produce a concept plan which was of a high standard, very functional and attractive and exactly what we wanted. Sandra did a fantastic job and we would have no hesitation in recommending her."
Jeff and Linda Nobes, Northcoate Point
“I found Sandra very easy to talk to, she listened to my ideas, guided me on plants I was unfamiliar with and came up with a garden design that incorporated all I had dreamed and more. Sandra is extremely efficient, punctual, creative and knowledgeable in her work. I am completely delighted with the transformation of my garden and would highly recommend Sandra to any prospective client."
Julie Le Clerc, Culinary Journalist, Grey Lynn
"Thank you for your recent work creating a garden for us. We are thrilled with the overall look of it. The hard landscaping plan you created suits the environment, the architecture of our home and most of all, the way we live. You successfully incorporated all of our requirements into what is a very small site. We are equally impressed with your work on the soft landscaping. Your planting plan, species selection and plant placement was superb and the result is a garden that precisely fits the brief we gave. Thanks again and we will certainly recommend your planning and plant placement skills to our real estate clients and friends."
Tanya and Ross Brader, Professionals Real Estate Agents, Pt Chevalier
"Someone advised me last year to get a landscape consultant, and that getting the right plants in the right places would save me money. I wish now I had taken this advice earlier! I'm really pleased with the 90min garden consultation Sandra gave us, and am excited about the new ideas we have been given to prepare our house for sale. I only wish we had done it last year to enjoy the benefits of it."
Fiona Betteridge, Mt Eden
"Sandra listened and understood the feel of the garden that we wanted and came up with a design that we are very happy with. We are looking forward to watching it flourish over the years. We'd highly recommend her."
Bev and Ross George, St Heliers Bay
"Sandra was fantastic! She really listened to our brief, pulled together a whole load of ideas that we had and came up with a great plan. She was always totally professional and let us know exactly what was happening next during the design process. We're thrilled and can't wait to get stuck in!"
Jane and Gareth Caple, Grey Lynn
“Making the decision to engage the services of Sandra and John was the best decision we could have made. From beginning to end, the process of transforming the gardens has been one of the easiest, least stressful and most enjoyable experiences. We consider ourselves to have been fortunate to have had Sandra and Outside Edge Ltd transform our property and cannot thank them enough for their efforts and success. Our highest recommendation to anyone considering using their services."
