Established in 2007, Outer Spaces Landscaping is the brainchild of husband & wife co-directors Adrian Whistler & Desiree Perham. Together they created a company that strives to blend natures own dramatic offerings of plant, light, water and vista to create landscapes which appeal to the senses.
Sighting works by Made Wijaya and Jamie Durie as early inspiration, Adrian first found his passion for plants and landscapes by way of travel in the mid nineties through Indonesia, Europe & Mexico. Over the ensuing years he has developed his knowledge of coastal, native and subtropical gardens, paving and minor construction, first with the developing of several of his own properties then through the conception of his first business as a landscaping & property maintenance contractor in 2001. An increasing demand for his landscaping services prompted Adrian & Desiree to concentrate their focus entirely on landscaping and so established Outer Spaces Ltd in 2007.
Other key staff:
Landscape Architect Joshua Thompson, a Christchurch native and honours graduate of Lincoln University, made the move north to Waihi Beach early in 2011. His modern, creative approach is refreshing and exciting, combining elements of artistry with the functionality necessary in practical landscaping. His designs and drawings, both hand drawn and digital, are professional, beautifully presented and easy to read.
Kane Stewart joined the team in 2013 as a part time labourer and quickly established himself as a permanent member of the squad. Now undertaking an apprenticeship Kane is well on his way to becoming a qualified Landscaper.
As with any business, other staff have come and gone over the years but all have been integral in forming the character of the company. This team collaboration has been a recipe for success for clients who want their functional objectives met with the just the right amount of creativity and aesthetics to suit their tastes and budgets. Outer Spaces do not follow standard templates, instead preferring an individual approach to each project. They offer a complete design and build service but happily offer plan-only or plant-only projects or implement plans supplied by other designers. They are also one of the few companies in the region that offer an ongoing aftercare and maintenance service.
The team at Outer Spaces Ltd take great pride in their work feel fortunate to be living in a beautiful corner of the country and doing something that they love and are passionate about.
