MEET THE TEAM
Liz is a Landscape Architect and started her gardening career at the age of 4 growing sweetcorn in her own vegetable patch. A lifelong obsession with the outdoors began. Liz has fiendish organizational skills and just loves to get things done.
Paige is our Accountant, Office and HR manager. She is likely your first port of call when you phone Busy Lizzy. She would like to consider herself a gifted kitchen-herb grower but we know her true skills lie not in the garden - but as our master of efficiency and organisation.
Gerhard was a full time mountaineer for nearly a decade and is the first on site to get his ropes out to scale a retaining wall or bank to get to those difficult to reach weeds!
Jen loves growing herbs for her latest culinary creation and when not gardening or cooking can be found in the yoga studio stretching her aching muscles.
Harry is our resident Engineer and full time General Manager. He started gardening at the age of 10 when he started his own lawn-mower round and now uses his impressive organisational skills and gardening know-how to keep everything running smoothly.
Devon works as one of our Landscape Managers. He comes from a background in construction and is skilled working out exactly how much soil or waste he can get on the truck each day in the most efficient way possible.
Nick provides heavy duty gardening power to the team. He is our tree and hedge man as well as extremely knowledgeable plantsman.
With 25+ years experience we have yet to find a plant he doesn't know the name of...

Murray has an eye for detail and digs the most beautifully straight and neat holes ready for planting. He is also excellent at pruning, knowing exactly where and how to cut for the best results.
Nathan is Nick's son has been a builder for 5 years. He is a specialist in drainage work and loves building decks. When not on the tools he can be found surfing or walking his new dog, Motley.
Louise has worked with Busy Lizzy for over 3 years and is now our maintenance manager helping all our regular clients. Originally from Sweden, she is still enthralled by Kiwi plants and would love to have at least one of everything she sees in her own garden.
Jack combines his Ironman training schedule with his work schedule - where digging holes and shifting soil at speed make for a fantastic workout. It is hard to know which he enjoys more...
Sarah is possibly the most hard-working gardener in Auckland and no weed stands a chance against her tenacity. She has the greenest fingers of anyone and can nurse seemingly dead plants back to life.
Jay is a real plantsman and loves all things green and growing. His special area of interest is fungi and he has quite a following on social media with some beautiful photographs!
