Kate & Co. are only in semi-hibernation!

In response to New Zealand's shift to Alert level 4, Kate & Co. will of course be postponing all garden visits. We are only in semi-hibernation though as design work can of course continue and we will be taking this opportunity to fine-tune our services, ready to hit the ground sprinting when we are able to!
As ever, we are contactable via email - grow@kateandco.co.nz
Kia kaha, Kate & Sophie

Fall in love with your garden again.

Is your garden unloved and neglected? Do you feel overwhelmed and do not know where to start? Are you a home owner, property manager, landscaping company or local business owner? 

From design to full garden makeovers in the central Auckland area, we are award-winning, trusted experts in all aspects of home gardens and we LOVE to see you light up at the transformations we achieve.

Hi, I'm Kate

and at Kate & Co., we sell garden passion in spades. Figuratively speaking. Literally speaking we create spaces that you want to hang out in ALL. THE. TIME.

We are amazing at what we do:

creating swoon worthy garden spaces

Are you ready to fall in love with your garden again?

Kate the Gardener

Let us help get your garden SORTED

We are friendly, fun, honest (with grit and a bit of edge), warm, always learning, super passionate, personal, genuine gardening rock stars who are excellent at what we do. 

We have an ability to take a much more tailored approach to what you need and are exceptional in the level of service we provide.

We are NOT one-off gardeners (one-man-band // small teams) and NOT the big chain companies that produce a cookie cutter offering in the market.

 We are the ROCK STARS of the gardening world.

We find out what makes you happy in your garden space and how we can help you to create a space that you want to hang out in ALL. THE. TIME!
