Ben Hoyle of Blue Gecko Landscapes

Gardening World Cup Japan Ben Hoyle

Designer Ben Hoyle has been surrounded by plants and creating gardens for as long as he can remember.

Since founding Blue Gecko Landscapes in 1998, Ben has evolved from humble beginnings to become one of New Zealand's most widely celebrated landscape designers, achieving numerous accolades and awards both nationally and internationally.

Based on the stunning Kapiti Coast, Ben's practice primarily works within the Wellington Region though happily accepts commissions throughout New Zealand and further abroad. 

His artistic and uniquely innovative style coupled with his highly practical knowledge of plants and construction techniques translates beautifully within the outdoor environment, from traditional suburban gardens and inner city courtyards, to larger estate, lifestyle and civic landscapes.

We offer a number of services from on site consultations, design only concept plans (if you wish to build the garden yourself), through to tenders and construction. We pride ourselves on providing a high quality, no pressure or obligation service.


To make a general no obligation enquiry, please feel free to contact Ben directly for friendly and professional garden and landscape services.

Hoyle's Golden Run Continues

Exhibition veteran and crowd favourite Ben Hoyle has scooped his 7th Gold Medal and Supreme Special Feature for his latest garden ADIDIG All Day I Dream In Gardens. Hoyle's garden stopped visitors in their tracks with his signature wow factor that included a contemporary 'cave pavilion', supporting an impressive 6 metre tall floating water sculpture.

The garden was inspired by Hoyle's journey of plants and gardening from a very young age with various plants within the exhibit referencing childhood memories and overseas adventures.  'I'm really stoked with the result' says Hoyle. 'I've had an amazing team of family and friends, friends of friends, and complete strangers who became friends to help make this idea a reality. We couldn't have achieved this result without them.

Hoyle first exhibited at an International level 1998, and has won numerous gold medals and supreme awards.  He has established an international reputation for his unique and unconventional garden concepts that continue to be at the cutting edge of garden design.
