Hi I’m Roger Clifton the owner of All Good Landscapes.
My background is :
I’ve been working in the horticultural industry since 1977.
I started out working on an orchard in Hastings in 1977 for 18 months, where I learnt about pruning, pest control and fruit culture.
Then moved back to Wellington in 1978 where I worked in the Botanic Garden for a 11 months, being trained in plant propagation, pruning, weed control, planning etc.
Next I moved to Sydney, Australia in the early 1980 and worked there for a landscape gardener for 2 years, where I got trained in landscape design & construction, paving, retaining walls, tree work, planting etc.
Then I went on an overseas trip to Japan, then cycled around England, Scotland and Wales visiting many of the notable gardens including many National Trust gardens.
After that I visited many notable sites and gardens by cycling across France to Paris, then into Switzerland where I did a picking season on a vineyard.
Next I went through Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, France, England, America, Hawaii then back to Auckland in 1984.
Settled in Torbay in 1985 I started my own Landscape Gardening business. I studied and passed my exams for a National Certificate In Horticulture in 1987.
Got married and raised 2 children. I’m still based in Torbay, on the North Shore of Auckland.
