We have recently built our lovely new home and while our section is very small we wanted to do something that was very special. We contacted Christo at Collaborate. He met with us and we discussed our needs, wants and dreams. What he came back to us not only met our brief but he had some great ideas that had the “WOW factor” The plans that Christo provided us with were easy to follow and Christo was happy for us to do some of the work ourselves. We have now moved in and all the landscaping is finished and we just love everything. Thanks so much Christo. We have no hesitation in recommending you.
I want to thank you. Most people I have spoken too down here don't want to know about my home in Auckland, unless I have a home here they couldn't be bothered. You took on the challenge anyway and came up with some fantastic ideas, which I know Rowan and I can't wait to start implementing. Well I can't! You have been working almost blind and yet the design is amazing. I couldn't be happier. And it's going to be great to go back to Auckland and say my garden was designed by Christo from Blenheim.
January 15, 2013 Testimonials "Thanks again Christo for the inspirational landscaping plans!! We were very impressed with your vision for our desperate looking section! The plans you created have exceeded our expectations- we love how you found potential in every bit of space and have created a theme and flow that will no doubt complement our new house! We cant wait to get started, and with your very helpful planting guide you have made that task even easier for us!! Thanks again Christo- we would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone like us who loves getting out in the garden but needs the inspiration and knowledge to get started!"
Dear Christo, Thank you so much for the beautiful garden design you created for us. You've managed to do exactly what we wanted – with all the practical aspects and planting we required – but in such an imaginative and exciting way. We love the extra ideas you came up with: particularly the children's play area with the shade sails and garden ‘islands’ to run around; and the vege garden with its hedge border, potted herb garden and the arbour. Besides wanting to hang the design on the wall (it’s beautiful enough), we can’t wait to get stuck in and start landscaping. We look forward to sharing a wine on that deck one day". Caroline and Ants
Colin and myself commissioned Christo to design and landscape our section last year, 2012. His expertise overwhelmed us as he transformed our section into a tropical easy care paradise. A year on and Christo still keeps in touch to see how the trees and plants are doing. We would highly recommend Christo and would, in our opinion, class him as number one landscape designer in Marlborough. Many thanks Christo.
