Claire Mahoney Garden Design
Auckland Region

I'm a trained landscape designer based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, available for concept and planting plans, garden consultations and project management.

I work on all aspects of a design from the initial concept, right through to implementation on-site and any on-going maintenance a garden may require. By understanding what each site needs, I design gardens that respond to their environment and those who inhabit them. My work is focused on sensitively using detail, craftsmanship and locally sourced materials. I am dedicated to creating gardens that address the needs of our changing climate, working with plants that are chosen for their appropriateness to a given site. I draw inspiration from studying plant communities in the wild as well as from the many gardens I’ve visited around the world.

Josephine Jelicich
Auckland Region

I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and training in Fine Furniture Making. I specialise in designing and hand-making small one-off solid wood pieces and can also help with facilitating larger works. I also work as a gallery technician which involves wall building, picture hanging, painting, plinth making and all kinds of behind-the-scene gallery jobs so can assist with home art and furniture install. I have a small workshop where I can do small jobs offsite.

I have an environmentally-friendly approach and enjoy the challenge of recycling as much as possible — I'm keen to make changes in the way we recycle in trades so am making a small start by thinking outside the box with each new job.
