    "This was the 2nd time we've used Sandra's services to provide a landscape design. We were happy the first time and are very happy this time. Sandra listened to our requirements whilst adding new ideas to the plan. She was able to accurately integrate our building plans with the landscape plan, and kept us up to date with job progress."

    "We engaged Sandra to provide a planting plan for our Remuera villa. She responded to my email quickly and confirmed her availability fast. Our meeting with Sandra was efficient and enjoyable. She was engaging and really understood what we were trying to achieve. She even considered our indoor decor in the overall plan to ensure it was all cohesive. She struck the perfect balance between advising us and taking on board our wishes. She was mindful of our desire for a low-maintenance garden, offering several options for some parts of the garden. We're really happy with her service."

    "I contacted Sandra by email on Friday morning after finding her website on line. She responded to me within 10 minutes outlining her fee structure. We did not require her full service but opted for a 90 minute on site consultation which was arranged for the following Monday.
    In the meantime I emailed Sandra some photos of the site as well as some information as to the sun the site receives etc.
    Sandra was on time for our appointment, extremely professional and no nonsense.
    She explained to us our limitations with the site and soil and proceeded to sketch out a plan for us. The completed plan was emailed through to me the following day. We are very impressed with what she has come up with, which we never would have managed on our own. We are looking forward to getting started. I would certainly recommend Sandra 100% if you have a landscaping project in mind.

    "Sandra took forever to come back with a plan for landscaping our front and back gardens. Then, when she did the plans were not altered to what we wanted she never listened to us or fully implemented what we wanted in our design. If you want a low maintenance garden that needs lawn area then she is not the person. We are now going to contractors to implement it but with major changes. Absolute waste of money and months of time our time wasted."

    " Hi Kirsty, Thank you for your feedback. Nocowboys ratings offer invaluable insight into my business performance and customer service. I care enough to respond to all my reviews and in particular to those ‘bad’ reviews such as yours which I recently received. Since 2007 I have had great reviews and always welcomed them from my clients. I value the standard of my workmanship and the importance I place in customer satisfaction. I would like to offer you the opportunity to get in touch again to resolve the issues and further discuss the points you stated you were not happy with in your review. Regards Sandra Batley, Designer/Director."

    She listened to what we wanted. My husband and I just love it.

    Thanks again Sandra!"

Once the design was completed, John then worked tirelessly to build it - going above and beyond. I can't thank Sandra and John enough for the transformation that has resulted from their vision and hard work. Thank you both for all that you have done."

I found her very professional, she had some great ideas for our planting and was very quick to get the design sketched out and agreed and then also took care with the ordering and placement of the plants when they arrived.

    "We used Sandra a year ago to design our new deck and outdoor area and she did such an outstanding job, we asked her to help us in March 16 with our pool/retaining area. Everyone comments on how awesome the deck is and how much value its added to our property. Sandra listened to what we wanted to achieve, designed the area and the plants to maximise the space and provide privacy all within a manageable budget. I find Sandra helpful (offers tips on plant maintenance, supplies names and contacts of contractors and can even source plants). I would have no hesitation in recommending Sandra if you want to add value to your property!"

    "We had just finished a totally renovated house but hadn't yet attempted to do anything with the dismal outside space leftover from 12 months of builder's work and neglect. After searching online for someone to help us with a design we decided Sandra was just the person we needed. I'm happy to say that we now have the absolutely perfect outside space that we initially dreamt of. Sandra understood exactly what we wanted to achieve in our brief - to turn a previously unused area of our house into a tropical oasis with indoor/outflow flow that we would use everyday. Sandra provided a fantastic, creative plan using hard materials, plants and features. She suggested we use John Eagleton to do the work and he did an absolutely wonderful job in bringing the plan to life. I would highly recommend Sandra as she is professional, has modern and creative ideas, good communication and is value for money. We have spent all summer using our new space and just love it."

    "Sandra was contacted at short notice to provide a landscaping plan based around my architects drawing. She worked very quickly to ensure that the builders could complete any building work required before they moved onto another job. I found Sandra to be very practical in her decisions about what should be planted where given we were working within tight space constraints and needed to be practical re swimming pool splash zones etc. I would definitely recommend her to others and I have already done so."

    "Sandra provided a highly professional design service for the renovation requirements of our outdoor living area. Taking the time to understand our requirements and aspirations for the area, she took a badly designed and rarely used space and created a fantastic entertaining area that is now constantly used. Sandra stayed in close contact with us throughout the entire design and subsequent build phases ensuring that the final outcome was to her high level of expectation. With an eye for detail the outcome is outstanding. We are constantly enjoying the awesome feedback from friends and family as they discover and experience this new area. As a realestate agent recently said our property now has a new living area that is both inviting and has substantially increased the value of our property. Thanks Sandra for a great outcome."

    "With a very unusable, uninviting backyard we needed a Designer who could visualise the potential and maximise the way we could use the garden. We met with Sandra who immediately understood our brief and got to work on a design which when presented to us we loved straight away. Sandra was super efficient and a great communicator. She was also able to recommend a Contractor to undertake the work. We now have a wonderful garden we are proud of! Not only does it look stunning it has also added huge value to our property. We would definitely use Sandra again and would not hesitate to recommend her to others looking for a Designer who knows her stuff! Thanks so much Sandra, we are totally rapt with our gorgeous new garden."

From the first phone call to the finished plans we were impressed with what Sandra provided along with her knowledge of landscape designing as this was something we had never done before.

    "Our experience with Flourish has been extremely rewarding. Sandra seemed to not only understand our brief but have a real insight into our tastes and the way we wanted to live. She interpreted that brief into a stunning concept that needed no changes whatsoever. It was creative and included those lovely surprise elements that make a design unique. It struck the right balance of beauty and practicality, hard and soft features. It contained a level of detail we hadn't expected. Sandra then went on to develop a well-thought-out planting plan, continuing to check our tastes and preferences as she went. We now have a blueprint for what should be a gorgeous garden. Very happy indeed."

    "We are two novice gardeners who had grand plans for transforming our back garden into a lovely outdoor living space but little idea of how to go about it. Sandra was recommended to us by a friend and we would certainly recommend her to anyone considering a garden design.
    She spent a lot of time with us understanding our goals, and she was very helpful in helping us understand what was achievable within our budget. She also was able to balance two competing viewpoints on the best use of the space (mine and my husbands) so that we both ended up with something we are really happy with! She has creative ideas, she was great at communicating with us throughout the process and she has given us a fabulous concept plan. We think it is an excellent investment.

    "Sandra's design consultation service was everything promised; she was on time, provided the consultation and sketch, together with plant recommendations, some of which were new to me. She listened to us and then added 'that edge' to step the final plan up and beyond. Would recommend anyone who has lost motivation through 'don't know where to go next' contact Sandra and use her expert services. A huge saving in time and money by eliminating our indecision. We're excited about putting the plan into action and looking forward to seeing the end result. Thanks Sandra."

    "We had the pleasure of a 90min consultation with Sandra, who listened to our general hopes and ideas that we had for 2 areas of our property ~ [Poolside planting and Immediate area at front of house]
    Although capable of all ground prep and planting we had no idea of exactly what to plant to achieve the lush easy look we wanted.
    We found Sandra to be extremely helpful and professional. She is completely approachable and friendly and listens and asks questions and then efficiently sets about designing plans for the areas. She discussed all the plants, positioning and ensured we were at ease and confident with what to do. HIGHLY RECOMMEND SANDRA :-) We have transformed both areas and love all the selected plants, appreciated follow up quick answers to questions and would not hesitate to recommend Sandra to anyone wanting help with garden design. It was a complete pleasure to work with her. Many Thanks

She listened to what we wanted to achieve and has produced a design to match exactly that. Our renovated garden looks beautiful.

    "Sandra was a true professional in her work and managed to get our very general ideas into a lovely design - no easy task when your dealing with non-gardeners like ourselves. The place is transformed even though it was a relatively small job. She did not attempt to foist a pre-conceived idea of her own on us but genuinely listened to what we wanted and successfully developed and brought into being the barely-formed ideas we had.
    The organisation of the job, involving another sub-contactor for some activities, was without problems and was reliably done at the agreed time. Communication was excellent throughout. I'm no expert on landscaping prices but I certainly feel we've had value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending Flourish to anyone and will be using Sandra's company for futher work in the near future. A welcome surprise as 'getting bods in' for any type of improvement work does not always turn out so well - hence the need for this websites like this.

It's now an impressive and practical area that has added value to the property. Sandra was great to deal with throughout the project.

    "Sandra has turned a barely used patio between the house and street into an "outdoor room" where we can entertain and relax. The use of walls, concrete, gardens and an outdoor gas fire have given us the privacy, shelter and warmth the old area lacked. The whole garden area in front of the house has been replanted and new lawn laid. From concept to finished product, it has been a joy to work with Sandra who answered all our questions and set our minds at ease. Our friends and neighbours have commented on how great it looks and that the transformation is amazing. Thanks Sandra for the design and your follow up, and for recommending Adam and his team from Urbis. We recommend Flourish to anyone contemplating a landscaping project."

    "We used Flourish's 90 min consultation service which is great value for money. We were left with so many great ideas but most importantly a plan to make them a reality. Within an hour of Sandra leaving we started moving plants around and can't believe the difference. We would recommend taking the time to make an accurate plan or you existing garden beds to get the most from the time.

    "We enjoy working with Sandra through the whole project, also and very satisfied with the final result. Sandra is the most recommended landscape designer for whose who are look for a designer who can convert your sketchy ideas into detailed design and deliver an excellent result of what you see on the draft.

    While the design phase, she is very diligent to help us to find the right plants that can meet our requirements. Every time when we had questions, she followed up and get back to us in the same day. Sandra is very good at communication, which is crucial for her job, to determine what we want and explain why we need this and why we don’t need that (I think this is very important to help us to trim our idea). And also Sandra is a patient and elegant lady to work with, always be very professional and trustworthy. Beyond her design, Sandra visited the site regularly and worked closely with the gardener to make sure the delivering is exact the same as what we see on the draft. Actually it is the same as what we expect. Meantime this also saves a lot of our time to communicate with gardeners and find the issues in advance. At the same time, she not only focuses on just the landscape but also notice other very detailed stuffs in the whole back yard. For example, she found some timber in our deck after removing the original trimming edge is not consistency with others, right after that she made a recommendation to us and worked with the carpenter to fix that. This make us feel very comfortable and confident that she will deliver us an excellent result. Once again thank you very much Sandra."

    "My husband and I have absolutely no gardening knowledge, vision or creativity so Sandra's 90 min consulting service was perfect for us. We had spent years floundering around wondering what to do,and in 90 mins she has sorted it all out for us! She is completely professional, very friendly, practical, realistic, a great listener and has fabulous ideas! We loved her focus on our budget and her copious notes have been easy for us to follow. She has great contacts and we are very happy with the landscaping company, Green with Envy that she has put us on to. In fact, we were so impressed with her service, we got her back a couple of months later to advise us on another property we own. We can't recommend her highly enough."

    "We very much enjoyed working with Sandra. She complete a full landscaping and garden design for our new build. The area was a complete 'blank slate' to begin with. Sandra listened to our ideas and preferences and came up with a great design and planting plan which makes our smallish outdoor area look and feel spacious. The landscaping and layout works well and we are astounded to see how quickly the plants have flourished. Sandra also has extremely high standards and great attention to detail, highly recommended"

    "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."

    "We had to get a lovely 100 year old Remuera villa we'd been renting for years ready for sale in just two months. Our work was cut out for us with a full interior/exterior reno and I had no time to work out what to do with the full site. There was masses of work to be done, heaps of "serious" planting to do for privacy and whatever we spent we had to recover in the sale price.

    Thankfully I found Sandra through this site. I was overseas when I first contacted her, she listened to my thoughts and promptly did a site inspection and fed back with some great advice. She priced up some options and I then got to meet her on site for a walk through. With her input it didn't take long at all to develop a plan. Sandra is very competent and knowledgable so after seeing the value I'd got from her consulting service, I decided to hire her to source all the plants and supervise the work so I could focus on the renovation. Sandra never lost sight of what we were trying to accomplish, she allocated the budget so thoughtfully it was as if she was spending her own money and making decisions about her own home. Because of the excellent relationship she has with her suppliers she was able to attract top quality landscaping talent at very short notice and negotiate with suppliers better than I could ever have. To top it off Sandra was super supportive and really positive throughout the whole process and came up with some really terrific low cost solutions and saved me from spending money in places that would not have added much value. Sandra knew exactly where to spend money for maximum effect and exactly where to save money. Sandra worked extremely hard to help sell our property, was terrific at keeping us updated on progress and was always available to talk through any questions we had. We felt Sandra always acted in our best interests which enabled us to trust her implicitly and resulted in us feeling far less stressed than otherwise would have been the case. We truly feel that very few people could have even come close to achieving the result that Sandra obtained for us and we would engage her again in a heartbeat! If you are looking to make your grounds more liveable, or add value to your home do yourself a huge favour and talk to Sandra. She will pay for herself many times over and you will save yourself a lot of headaches."

    "We've had the pleasure of working with Sandra twice now.
    Our latest project was from "scorched earth", and with Sandra's great input we're thrilled with the result. She's very easy to work with; a good listener, happy to exchange ideas, creative, enthusiastic, and professional.
    Particularly important for us at the end of a long renovation project, Sandra worked in very well with our builder on ideas and design of the hard landscaping, and with Adam and his excellent team from Urbis Landscapes who pulled it all together for us. We'd highly recommend Flourish and Sandra to anyone.

    "We researched via the internet for a landscape designer and was taken by the website for Flourish. Sandra was contacted and an appointment made when it suited us. Sandra came to the property to talk with us about our ideas and a few thoughts of her own. We were happy with the whole process so asked for a quote, which was sent to us within two days.
    Since then, we have had a full design completed that satisfies almost every criteria we asked for, minus a couple of ideas that would not have been suitable. The plan is easy for us to understand and can now use it to talk to contractors with and eventually get the design implemented. Sandra was extremely knowledgeable and we felt we were in safe hands with her design experience.

    "When I found pictures of Sandra\'s work on-line - I knew I had to have her design our front entrance and garden, and she didn\'t disappoint! I enjoyed the way Sandra made us a part of the design process, so we feel like we have been able to add our personal tastes, to Sandras expertise and talent. I think without Sandra\'s help, we would have wasted money by purchasing too many plants, and would have planted them in inappropriate places, it just wouldn\'t have had the impact that our garden is now going to have. We are waiting for the weather to warm up before we plant up - and I can\'t wait!"

    "Sandra replied to my query very promptly, and was flexible in arranging a time to see me that suited us both. She was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. Even though my requirements were simple (being non-green thumbed as I am!) Sandra was really helpful and took all of my concerns seriously. She gave me helpful practical advice, tips and the information I needed to get the job done. Highly recommended. I will definitely use Flourish in the future. "

    "We have been very impressed with the service Sandra has provided us right from the start. She provided us a landscape and garden plan to our brief within a couple of days and worked very closely alongside our landscaper to adapt to some last minute changes we wanted to make. Sandra is very profssional, listens to what you want and for us that was providing us with an easy care low maintanence garden. She offered great ideas for planting as our knowledge of plants is somewhat limited and she supported her suggestions with pictures. The quality of service and workmanship provided to us by Sandra has been great and good value for money and we would have no hesitation in recommending her."

    Sandra was attentive, listened to our requirements, and made exciting suggestions (that had never even crossed our minds) that suited both our vision for the property and our budget.
    We could not have been more happy with the final Concept Design, and Planting Plan and are looking forward to moving to the implementation stage shortly. We would not hesitate to recommend Sandra and her services.

The whole process was handled in a very professional manner and have no hesitation in highly recommending Sandra’s services to others!"

    "This is the second time I have used Sandra, I loved what we did in the garden last year and it has all thrived and looks so fabulous we had Sandra back and have now conquered a ghastly bank that was an eyesore for 15 years. In a matter of weeks it has been transformed to an attractive, low maintenance feature - Sandra is a magic woman!!! I have wasted so much money at garden centres over the years planting the wrong things in the wrong places that end up dying or looking bitsy, but with Sandras advice my garden is looking great. She also talked me through the maintenance of last years planting and identified some disease on a couple of my plants that I didnt even know was there. I plan to have Sandra back again in the spring to do "round the back" and get her in each spring and autumn to pick her brains for maintenance. Thanks Sandra, you are awesome."

    "Sandra provided me with a garden consultation. I found Flourish on the web and loved the gardens and outdoor areas she had designed for others.

    I had basic ideas of what I wanted but Sandra was able to give me great planting advice and helped me prioritise projects within my existing garden.

    I think if you need a quickstart option without spending a lot of money a consultation is a great place to start and can save you thousands of dollars in the long run."

    "Sandra went above and beyond the call of duty to please us and work out what we wanted in our garden when we didn't have a clue ourselves. Giving us lots of handy hints for other parts of the landscape that she wasn't working on. Her planting schedule is easy to follow and buy plants from. Highly recommend her. "

    "We contacted Flourish for a garden consultation and Sandra spent an hour with us giving advice on plants and ideas as well as a sketch of a basic layout. It was an hour well spent and now we are bursting with enthusiasm to begin transforming our neglected garden! Sandra is obviously passionate and extremely knowledgeable about what she does and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
    P.S. The communication with Sandra via ph and email was excellent AND she was punctual with no being mucked around!

    "We chose Sandra to design our garden based on her excellent No Cowboys reviews and from looking at her website and we were really pleased with our decison to go with her. Sandra came up with some excellent ideas on how to deal with a number of pieces of children's play equipment which were dominating our garden and we loved her suggestions for planting out the garden. In terms of professionalism, Sandra was great at keeping us informed of her progress, what would be happening next in the design process and her drawn plans were great for people like us who are not able to imagine the finished product."

    "We used Sandra for advice on how to prepare an overgrown developers garden at my partner's place for sale next year. Her advice was very workable and does not require expensive changes that probably would not add to the value anyway. Focus was on the first impression in the front garden and around the entertainment terrace at the back. Already acting on her advice the garden just by clearing out the surplus bits but retaining the good bits is looking much better already. That without having started on limited replacement planting for the tired/old parts that had to go. I have just booked her in to advice on my garden too to get that ready for sale too. Recommend her."

    "I initially had Sandra recommended to me in 2005 after she did a lovely design for a friend and was so pleased with her design for my garden that I had no hesitation in giving her a commission for more work in 2008.
    My site had several restrictions which Sandra worked around and created exactly the look I wanted . Three years on it looks lovely and gives us a great deal of pleasure.
    The professional gardener who planted it commented at the time that it was the first design he had worked to which was not overplanted - high praise from a fellow professional.

    "As my friend treated me to the garden design by Sandra I do not know the cost, but feel sure from using Sandra previously for a previous garden design at my previous home - that her pricing would be right. Her service, listening skills and interpretation was superb; as was the design she created for me. Her suggestions, because of my limited budget, were most helpful and she has created exactly what I asked for - with beautiful suggested foliage that will create a low maintence garden that will be a pleasure to use. Thanks once again Sandra - would love you to view the job when complete."

    "We currently have a circa 500sqm section, quite steeply sloped in parts, heavy clay soil, with irregular lawn growth amongst a multitude of clutter consisting of mature trees and various other plant species with no common theme. In some ways we feel that our section lacks its own ?identity? from our immediate neighbours, and has very limited outdoor living space.

    Even though we are probably above average DIYers, we decided to invest in a professional landscape designer. Like a lot of people, we are budget conscious, and sought the advice of a Sandra at Flourish as we felt well thought-out ideas with a fully rendered plan could assist in giving greater certainty of cost when it came to consulting with contactors. Naturally, we also wanted our ideas translated into the best design possible for a modest budget (around 5% of our property?s value). We decided to use Sandra?s services solely based on the feedback from this website, and we couldn?t rate her services highly enough. We provided Sandra with a ?wish list?, and in all honesty would have been delighted if she was able to accommodate half of our ideas. However, each and every thing we listed (including budget) was carefully considered as part of the final concept. We were kept well informed about the process throughout and were even able to meet with Sandra outside normal business hours. We have now been presented with fantastic concept and planting plans and are looking forward to seeing our new outdoor living space evolve in the coming months!"

    "My husband and I had been thinking of attempting to do something with our sloping, clay backyard which was never utilised except for hanging out the washing. We first came across Sandras designs at Petal & Pots in Albany, and decided to have an initial consultation with her. Little did we know when we meet her that she would completely change the way we lived and entertained outside. Sandra took no time at all thinking along the same lines as my husband and I in what we wanted to achieve with our backyard. Her fantastic garden design and plant selection was better than what she had designed on paper. The flowing lines, colour, harmony and peace that we now have in our garden is magical. All the way along the design process Sandra showed us in detail what effect we could achieve with plants selection and colour, which made us both realise that we had the right person for the job. Sandra worked quietly behind the scenes with our landscapers and helped to achieve the garden oasis we have now. Because of the fantastic job that Sandra has achieved on our backyard, we have also asked her to design our front garden and driveway and work again in conjunction with our landscapers to achieve a whole property oasis. I would highly recommend anyone wishing to work with a professional garden designer and know that your garden dreams will come true."
