Over 15 years of design experience...

Compelled to create landscape designs that are timeless and gardens that you will love for years to come. Our design process is structured to be exciting and engaging whilst exploring the best functional and aesthetic aspects of your project. Garden that are memorable and entertaining.

Monika has 15 years of experience in design, materials and plant knowledge and can advise on any size project. She specialises landscape design for recourse consent for sub-divisions and public spaces, as well as privately owned properties, new builds and garden makeovers. What’s great is that we can assist with the design phase as well as project manage the building and planting phase. 

For our designers, a successful project relies on the collaboration of you the client, your architecture (or architect), your installer, your dreams, and of course your budget which is carefully considered with each project – and which ultimately builds the base for our creative and professional design magic to happen!


When you look at your well designed garden… you will enjoy it more if you are looking at a manageable masterpiece with strong design principals, something to be proud of.
Monika Olson Design understands how people can positively interact with outdoor spaces - and how this changes with the Seasons, so let them make your place enjoyable all year round and not just for a season! Get in touch now and book in your free consultation.


Why choose us?


Our services are from beginning to end, let us manage everything and take the stress out of your project. Having one company overseeing the installation of the hard landscaping, soft landscaping, lighting, and irrigation puts everything under one umbrella.  We manage your budget making sure we specify quality materials that fit into your budget. We choose plants and trees that you can actually deal with - that will not only survive but thrive and keep giving years of enjoyment. We also collaborate with architects, urban designers and planners to get required landscape designs, planting plans and maintenance schedules passed through council (Resource Consent when required). We have also had fun collaborating and workshopping with students to design and implement abundant experiential and sustainable school playgrounds, as well as a huge interest in suburban community gardens.
