Meet the team

Since 2016 when we were Kate the Gardener, we have grown from 'Kate and a spade' to a crew of insanely talented designers and gardeners looking after some of Auckland's most beautiful gardens.

Last year the stars collided when Kate pondered the idea of bringing in a partner just as a former client Sophie got in touch, keen to get on board.

So the mission continues to help people fall back in love with their gardens. Like the gardens we care for, we're growing strong, and it's time to meet the Kate & Co. team.

Kate - Kate loves creating amazing gardens and building awesome teams. And she really loves her team. When she’s not visiting clients and working on garden designs, Kate has a real passion for wielding a spade and ripping things out so her tasks are carefully assigned to make the most of these talents.

Sophie - Sophie's passion for gardens is quite recent but she has always obsessed with finding the smartest way to get things done. She runs our back office and is a plant-sourcing whizz, but also welcomes a high intensity workout otherwise known as delivering mulch!

She’s our organiser, who brings the ‘can do’ attitude every day to push through any garden challenge. She also has the best First Aid kit we’ve ever seen.

Crystal - Crystal has always been an avid gardener and garden show groupie, and recently graduated top in her class for Landscape Design. Our clients are wowed by her beautiful designs (even if they make Sophie roll her eyes at the obscure plants to be found) and we all get a buzz when clients fall back in love with their gardens.

Max - Max is Mr Easy Going but paradoxically keeps our van looking spotless. Coming from a farming family, it's no surprise that gardens are his happy place, closely followed by a night in with a good box set.
