A brief history:
After graduating from Unitec in 2011 (top student in the Dip.Landscape Design programme that year) Kerry created Twist Creative Landscape Design. ‘Twist’ offered traditional bespoke landscape design services to homeowners and it turned out she was pretty good at it!
A previous career in floristry helped, along with the myriad of garden types experienced in her own properties across the country…Greymouth, Christchurch, Wellington, Palmerston North and central Auckland to name a few!
A favourite project completed during her 'emerging designer' years were for a Grand Designs New Zealand property and a retail courtyard garden in a Newmarket shopping precinct. During this time Kerry also worked with some of Auckland’s top garden designers, assisting with design and drafting services ‘behind the scenes’, eventually settling into a challenging but rewarding niche working alongside landscape contractors, providing design services to offset their construction expertise.
7 years later and some fabulous projects Kerry has been an integral part of during this time have:
- Been magazine featured | Urbis, NZ House and Garden, NZ Gardener and In Your Backyard
- Been included in the Bi-annual Auckland Garden Designfest | 2017 & 2019
- Award-winning Designer: Won Gold in the Landscaping New Zealand Landscapes of Distinctions Awards | 2019
