I met Thijs through a friend whose garden he had been maintaining for some time. Her garden was large, beautifully landscaped and wonderfully maintained. My friend was unable to do any work in the garden so all the work fell to Thijs. It was one of the most beautiful gardens I had seen in Wellington and I asked Thijs to work on my garden.
Since I am unfamiliar with New Zealand plants I have been heavily reliant on Thijs’ expertise. He assisted us in clearing a new space in our garden, choosing and purchasing plants for the space, doing the planting and doing ongoing maintenance.
We now have a lovely garden in what used to be a weedy, scrabby patch. Thijs’ advice has always been excellent and his work outstanding and reasonably priced. I had used more expensive gardening services in the past but their work could not compare with Thijs’. I strongly recommend Thijs and his team
Thijs has assisted us to maintain our 6.5 acre lifestyle property for the past two years. During this time he has proved to be a reliable hard worker, and this coupled with his horticultural expertise and flexibility has made him the perfect choice to meet all our gardening needs. As a result we have given him more responsibility and increased his hours of work. We would happily recommend Thijs to others.
Thijs has been working for me for the last five years. Originally he maintained my garden on a difficult hillside section in Northland. More recently he has redeveloped my neglected formal garden in Thorndon which is now much admired. In both cases I have been very pleased with the results, and have been happy to recommend Thijs to friends.
Lancewood has provided a good, dependable service. Thijs has the necessary expert knowledge and also carries out maintenance work quickly and efficiently.
Thijs transformed our boring, drab garden beds into a wonderful play space that our children will be able to enjoy for years to come. He took time to consider different approaches when re-designing the space & offered varying pricing options. His ongoing maintenance of our new space means we’re required to do very little to keep it looking as wonderful as the day he completed it. We can’t recommend Lancewood highly enough!
We have been greatly impressed with Thijs’ work ethic and ability. He obviously takes personal pride in his work, is highly responsive to individual needs, and has a wide variety of practical skills. The work he has done to date on our garden has been outstanding, and attracted a great deal of positive comment from friends and neighbours. We would definitely use Lancewood again.
