Landscape Designers

Olson Landscapes was founded by Gavin Olson in 2008, following extensive experience in the UK. In recent years, wife Monika Olson, a designer and make-up artist joined the design team, bringing her own creative eye to the process. That’s why with Olson Landscapes clients might align with one designer, but enjoy the benefit of a second eye. Two heads are better than one!

Meet the Olsons

Gavin and Monika have experience working across different landscapes including large commercial projects to small courtyards with high end customised detailing, for builders, architects and directly with clients. They have also been head consultants and installers for sizable housing and schooling development projects.

Landscaping Team

Olson Landscapes employs a team of 6 full-time staff plus part-time staff to build and maintain projects, with Gavin as the head project manager.

Their skills and specialities are varied, but all have related backgrounds and certifications including in building, green keeping, landscaping and maintenance.

The rest of the installation team consists of friendly and approachable builders and gardeners, who are committed to creating an enjoyable and professional experience.

Passion for Nature

Being designers with a passion and understanding of the environment and New Zealand flora means your projects look good from the start and thrive in the future.

Our love of nature is also demonstrated in landscape rehabilitation projects such as garden community groups, parks and schools. Our highly regarded expertise is evident from Gavin’s guest appearances as a landscape expert in The Cafe.
