Specialists in school grounds, natural adventure play, outdoor learning environments, land use diversification and connecting people, place and nature.

We are landscape architects and craftsmen with 25 years experience of designing, planning, and evolving landscapes for diversity, leisure, education, children’s and family play,  rewilding and ecological habitat.  Low carbon footprint designs that encourage positive lifelong associations with the natural world.

Advice, planning and design as required, from inception through to completion, with a full design and build service when required. We also advise and steer your own self build projects.

Our specialisation is the enhancement of real places that have personality and atmosphere, making special places that people love to visit and spend time in

Schoolgrounds design

Effectively designed school grounds and playgrounds result in very positive impacts on childrens' behaviour.

Natural play areas

Natural playgrounds, and the enhancement of traditional play spaces, take exploration, adventure and learning to another level.

Family gardens

Low maintenance, cost effective landscape designs that rejuvenate the spirit, are fun, beautiful, sustainable and look great too.

Organic Farm

"Working with Leaves of Green was very rewarding as it helped us to learn how to ‘read’ our land, understanding it’s micro climates in different areas, and how to best work with it’s natural opportunities as well as it’s challenges. Guy gave us the confidence to start a brand new lifestyle section designed with sustainability and permaculture principles in mind – invaluable to us, as we had very little experience when we started."

Christian and Eva Mairoll, Motueka River Valley
