Garden design and advice for attractive, easy-care gardens

Creating and maintaining an attractive garden can be easy and enjoyable. We can guide you through the garden design and creation process in a simplified and practical way. Together we can produce an inviting, quality outdoor area that suits your lifestyle.

Founded in 2016 in Ōtautahi Christchurch by Jenny Owens, Artful Gardens specialise in selecting plants that are proven performers. Choosing the right plants for the right spots and getting them in the ground the right way saves time, money and energy in the long run. 


Our design principles and garden-making process apply to all types of gardens; new builds, renovating existing gardens, lifestyle blocks and commercial sites. 


To get the most from your outdoor space, get in touch with Artful Gardens today.

A visit to your site, we can discuss planning, positioning, plant selection as well as any questions you have.

After this consultation service, you will be sent a list of ideas, images and information on plants and materials discussed as well as a list of any relevant recommended retailers and tradespeople.

From this visit and accompanying notes you will know what you will need to do if you are carrying out the work yourself and what plants to include in your new garden. 

The cost for this service is $250 and can be done over Facetime if you live outside of Christchurch.

planting plan

Following a site visit a full planting plan can be created for your garden, each area of the property will be illustrated and explained in terms of what plant will go where, spacings and how many plants you will need.

From the planting plan you will have all the information you need to make or rework your garden, a list of materials and plants to send to retailers or a plan to give to a landscaper to do it for you.
