Who we are
Nature's Vela is a Landscape gardening business based in Wellington NZ. Working around New Zealand we have drawn a lot of knowledge and inspiration from the many landscapes we have had the pleasure to work in.
We love to get a lot of our ideas from nature, by observing the way landscapes are naturally created in our beautiful outdoors, and using those ideas to personalize your own outdoor paradise.
Nature's Vela was born from my curiosity and passion for learning from and working with nature. There are many ways to understand and work with the complexity and diversity of a thriving ecosystem, and for me it’s the learning of my lifetime.
Working with plants started as a labour of love, volunteering at the local Nature Reserve. I planted over 1000 natives in the Brooklyn green belt under the mentorship of a gifted environmentalist who is now a manager at the Nga Manu Reserve in Waikanae.
Once I had my child I made the decision to follow my passion and work as a sole trader with established landscaping, building and garden maintenance businesses. During this time I refined my skills and learnt the many aspects that go into good landscaping from the planning and design to preparation of the soil to garden maintenance and plant care. Working for a range of talented people gave me the insight and strength to carry out the physical work required behind the scenes of creating a rich, thriving landscape.
By 2015 I had established a solid reputation for landscaping and began to trade as Nature’s Vela. With a passionate commitment to the work my client list grew and by 2019 I expanded the business. Over the last couple of years we have collaborated with a wide network of Builders, Earthworkers, Lawn Specialists, Tree specialists and horticulturalists on various projects of all scales. Today we have both residential and commercial clients throughout the Wellington region.
We are a team of passionate landscape gardeners. We enjoy being a part of working with the land and with people who want to bring a lot of life into their own backyards. We would love to be a part of designing, creating, restoring, enhancing & maintaining the rich landscapes around New Zealand.
