Operations Manager

Unmatched experience....
Gus couples his Lincoln University Horticulture Diploma with over 35 years horticultural and construction experience. His strong leadership skills have seen many young staff mentored and progress successfully under his management. His local expertise complements Joe’s design skills to create a seamless jump from paper to land.

Together Joe and Gus have a deep knowledge of the Queenstown region and the many subtleties of its flora and microclimates. This allows them to identify opportunities to capitalise on the landscaping opportunities different areas may offer clients, helping create a subtle, unique space within the conditions nature has provided.

“They are a very good team, they have a great level of knowledge about the materials and plants they use, and Joe’s approach to getting in and getting his hands dirty with the team works well – they were great to have around on the job.”
