Liz and her team were wonderful to work with and have an amazing work ethic - they did our job through a cyclone! We are thrilled with the outcome. 

Many thanks

George and Matt were excellent gardeners - they didn't stop once and were great communicators.  They worked so hard to clear a very tricky site on a high wall and did an outstanding job.

The front fence looks awesome and so much cleaner.  The guys have done a great job today.

We want to let you know how very happy we are to get home and see the first stage of the gardening work.  It was excellent.

What a great pleasure to have Val and George happily going about their work: nothing was too difficult for them, even when I changed course, and asked if they could  thin out the dead wood  from a large old Magnolia. A big job requiring knowledge and imagination….there was plenty of that.

I'm pleased I made it home in time to meet Heather. She's done a fabulous job and I'm thrilled. A really lovely lady and I'd  like to have her back if possible.  I think she's quite keen to get stuck into the weeding!

We engaged Busy Lizzy to design and replant our garden, the job quickly took on more elements as we realised that they could do it all. This included retaining walls, new entrance way and a very clever upgrade to our carport. We couldn't be happier with the end result, high quality build work with a clever redesign. This crew are professional, creative, timely and the end result within budget. Highly recommend this local business.

Thanks very much for the work done at our place. We’re very happy with everything - the good communications with us, the courtesy of the staff onsite and the wonderful looking result of the work done. We’ve now got a much tidier and updated poolside garden. Special thanks to Harry for coordinating everything and to Nick and crew for the fencework - the new one looks fabulous and the gate works and looks so much better and professional than the old one.

Hi Busy Lizzy Team, 

Just wanted to say thank you so much, you guys are rockstars I couldn’t be happier that I choose to go with you. The garden looks fantastic, our tenants are happy and your details of photos and invoice outline is SUPER.

We couldn't be happier with the guidance & skill shared by Liz & her team. From design, plant selection, locating tradespeople to getting in with shovels & invoicing, Liz & the crew were thorough & delivered. We needed help realising a vision for our small garden & she helped us achieve this in line with our budget & taught us heaps along the way. 100% would recommend & will be using again to keep the place looking fabulous.

I just wanted to email you and thank you and your wonderful team for our garden you planted recently.  We were thrilled with the outcome and wanted to thank everyone at Busy Lizzy Gardens. Thanks for organising the plants, builder, and boys to do all the hard digging and preparation as well as the planting. They were a great team, polite, hard working and a pleasure to have around and left the place tidy after days work. The communication was fantastic and you kept us well informed along the way. It has been a pleasure working with you and I can highly recommend Busy Lizzy Gardens.

Thank you

M Ritchie. St Heliers. August 2021

Liz and her team were absolutely fantastic to work with. Liz managed to squeeze me in when they were frantically busy and did an amazing job and within the allocated time. On first meeting I felt I could trust Liz thoroughly. They are so professional in every aspect. Clayton, who Liz organised, was equally efficient, professional and lovely to work with. I can honestly say Liz and her team were a delight to work with and have in our garden and I am so thrilled with the result. I thoroughly recommend Busy Lizzy to anyone. Thank you team!

A fast, friendly and efficient garden maintenance service. Liz anticipated what we needed (almost without being told), provided good advice about what to remove and replant, and organised everything for us including all the waste removal. They arrived on time and worked so hard all day it made my back ache. The result is a sight to behold and we are very pleased with the whole experience.

Jonathan N. Meadowbank August 2021

The brief to Liz was to remake our overgrown front garden with a view to more colour, more structure and less maintenance. Liz convinced us to restart, almost with a clean sheet. The clearing and replanting is done. Now it’s a matter of waiting for the new plants to grow into their spaces. Spring is going to look great thanks to Liz.

John M. St Johns August 2021

I had Busy Lizzy do the maintenance in my garden for first time this week. I’m just so thrilled! They did everything I wanted and it all looked so tidy. 

I look forward to seeing them again soon.

Lisa T. St Johns June 2021

5 stars for Liz and her team!! We are extremely happy with the excellent job done. From the initial contact to the final product, it has been a pleasure to work with Liz. Thank you so much :))

Cathie L. California Place. March 2021

The team did a wonderful job, in spite of the rain, and it was a real pleasure to have them working here.

The garden looks fabulous and I am thrilled.

Thank you Liz I will certainly use your team when next I need a tidy up.

Pat D. Riddell Road. March 2021

We were delighted with the service we received from Busy Lizzy Gardens. Your team worked hard, finished the job in a timely matter and cleared the site of any rubbish.

I certainly would use the company again.

Warren, Epsom. January 2021

We have no reservation in recommending the Busy Lizzy Gardeners.  A team of well organised and skilled people with excellent design ideas.  They worked with enthusiasm and nothing was too much trouble.  We inherited a dingy, run-down, overgrown garden and Busy Lizzy helped us convert it to a beautiful place we love to look at every day.

Susanna, St Johns. November 2020

I am absolutely thrilled with my garden  and everyone worked so hard to get it looking great. Your team are lovely people and a pleasure to have at my home.

Helen, Long Drive.  August 2020

At last we have found and excellent team to handle our garden requirements. Liz was very clear on the time frame and costings prior to starting. Her team were very efficient, tidy and worked at a fast pace.

They were pleasant to deal with and did an excellent job.

Can't recommend this team highly enough.

Trelise C, Orakei.  August 2020

I am delighted, thrilled, pleased, and so happy with the work the gardeners did yesterday. Outstanding!

JN, Kelvin Road, Remuera August 2020

Liz and her team were such a pleasure to work with and did a fabulous job with our garden. We had a tricky garden area to work with but Liz was able to come up with a great plan that we were thrilled with. She worked with us to find out what we wanted but was also mindful of our budget. Her communication was great, everything was done on time and both she and her team were always professional and lovely to have around!

I would highly recommend Busy Lizzy. We now have a garden that we absolutely love!

A&G, Seascape Road, Remuera.  July 2020

Liz and her team provide a great service - very professional, excellent communications and deliver on what they promise. I recently contracted Liz and team to maintain our garden and I can say that we are very pleased we did. They do a great job, provide good advice and are punctual. I am happy to recommend their gardening service.

Lakshman, Stonefields July 2020

Effortless communication and fantastic results. Would highly recommend Liz and her experienced, resourceful crew.

JW, Kohimarama April 2020

Awesome service by Liz and her lovely team. Clear pricing, great communication including an email the day before to confirm what time they would arrive and they did a wonderful job in our garden. We are extremely happy after some disappointing experiences with previous unreliable gardeners. We will be using them for regular garden maintenance and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Sarah, Mission Bay.  April 2020

We are thrilled with the garden it looks absolutely fantastic.  Thank you so much for your incredible work.

J.E Yattendon Road. January 2020

I came up to school this morning and the garden looks amazing. 

Thank you and the team so much for the time, effort and preparation to make the area into a colourful, user space that I am sure the children will really enjoy visiting. 

Principal McCarthny. St Heliers School. December 2019

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for getting my garden back in shape. Didn't realise how neglected it got over the last few months.  Liz and her team are my new garden fairies. They are hard working, very friendly, deliver on time and meet expectations.

Michelle, Athlone Road.  November 2019

Liz was fantastic at listening to what we wanted. She then achieved it with a top quality team and was on target for budget and time. Highly recommend!

Michelle, Towai St. June 2019

Thank you so much for cleaning up the bank, you and your team did a great job. Busy Lizzy is the only company I intend to use. You were efficient, prompt and always kept me well informed. I have already recommended you to my neighbours and friends.
FH McArthur Ave, St Heliers April 2019



Liz was amazingly helpful and professional. I had no vision for our garden, just a rough idea and budget, Liz made all our landscaping dreams come true, and within the very fast time frame we needed it done. I couldn't recommend Liz more highly, you really don't need to go anywhere else!! Thanks again Liz, we are so over the moon with the finished product.

Amy, St Heliers Bay Road

It has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure having Liz and her experienced, resourceful crew work away on what has been a rather challenging site. She has supported us from the early stages; managing a weed overgrown steep section, advising and removing undesirable shrubs & trees, guiding us on establishing a healthy growth of new plants and even keeping on top of it all while we went away. Her quick, flexible and friendly response to our requests has made it a breeze to transform our garden.Thank you Liz & Team. We look forward to working more with you.

Julia, Sprott Road


Great to deal with and listened to what we were after. Able to support as much or as little as needed. So now just up to us to bring the plans to life. Thanks Liz!

Anna & David, Riddell Road

We had been mulling over what to do with our back yard for a long time when we decided to get some professional help. Glad we did! Liz is quick to understand what you want and translate that into a workable plan. She’s very pragmatic, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. She not only gave us excellent plans and ideas to improve our garden, but the confidence to do so too!

VH, Glendowie


Thanks Liz and her team for doing such a great job at clearing up our garden.  Thoroughly recommend them.

Denise, Ashby Ave

Liz was truly amazing when I sought her help to get our large garden which had been ruined by builders and was on a tricky site, ready for sale at very short notice. Her knowledge of plants and constructive approach meant we ordered the first batch of plants quickly. We were able to project manage the whole thing together, leaving me to do some parts of the garden while she and her quickly assembled crew concentrated on others. The project got completed on time and was instrumental in helping us to sell our property within a few weeks of going on the market. Thank you, Liz!

Silvia, Athlone Road

We love the design Liz did for our garden. She found really creative ideas for our difficult sloping section and took a lot of pleasure in finding just the right plant for each spot. The result is far better than I’d imagined it was possible. She was really professional – appointments are kept, budgets met. I couldn’t recommend them more highly. The team worked incredibly hard on the planting, never deterred by filthy weather. They now take great pride in doing the monthly maintenance –  the place has never looked so good. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised that getting Busy Lizzy Gardens to design and plant our garden saved us money –  Liz can source quality plants at a fraction of the retail price, so it was much more cost-effective to get her to do the job than attempt it myself (not to mention a whole lot easier).

Kim, Vale Road

I would highly recommend Liz – she's prompt, efficient and keeps you well informed of the work performed!

Sheryl, Kildare Ave. June 2018

Liz and her team were great to work with. They prepared a planting plan, removed some existing plants, weeded, and then replanted our garden. We found Liz friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The work was well executed and done within a quick timeframe. Thanks again!

Clare, Challenger St. March 2018

I can't praise Liz and her team highly enough. From an initial consult where Liz presented some great ideas for our front garden area, through to concept plan, project managing construction of the hard landscaping, and then the final planting of our new shrubs and trees, Liz made sure it all happened with minimum fuss and achieved a fantastic result. We'll definitely be using Busy Lizzy Gardens for all our gardening needs going forward.
