Having never built a house before and having Tony as the builder of the project along with two small children we knew we were going to need some help with ideas, mainly colours and landscaping.However we decided to go with the full package that Collaborate offer. We came out with ideas for the colour and landscaping plus so many innovative and fresh ideas for key features in our home.We are over the moon with having Jenny & Christo on board the build process and LOVE what they have come up with to add interest to the home.We also loved having the support to tackle any wavering ideas we had that we could not agree on as a couple.We think it is a worthy investment to have Collaborate as part of the process if you are about to build or renovate your home and we would happily recommend Jenny & Christo. We love that they are a team that brings together the whole package for indoor and outdoor flow.

I consider myself very lucky to have had Jenny breathe new life into my house. Jenny has many great suggestions, knows colours well, listens & responds to her client's thoughts & provided practical demonstrations of options. Jenny was so easy to work with and fun! I have no hesitation in recommending Jenny's creative flair to anyone. Thanks Jenny, I love what you've done.

‘We recently moved into a new house and asked Christo Saggers of Collaborate to design our section for us. We are pleased to say the result was excellent and we would highly recommend Collaborate for any design work needed.’ Robin and Jill.

“I have dealt with Christo several times to help with landscaping projects, and I’ve found his advice to be very practical, with great vision for what we were trying to achieve within the budget constraints outlined. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.”

We have recently built our lovely new home and while our section is very small we wanted to do something that was very special. We contacted Christo at Collaborate. He met with us and we discussed our needs, wants and dreams. What he came back to us not only met our brief but he had some great ideas that had the “WOW factor” The plans that Christo provided us with were easy to follow and Christo was happy for us to do some of the work ourselves. We have now moved in and all the landscaping is finished and we just love everything. Thanks so much Christo. We have no hesitation in recommending you.

We were very pleased with Christo’s suggestions for the design of our new garden which features all indigenous NZ plants. He has been a pleasure to work with and have no hesitation in highly recommending him for all landscape design needs.

Christo recently completed a landscaping project at our home. This involved two stages and included both concept design and project management. Christo completed the first stage of the project and we have been delighted with the outcome. We were so pleased with his original work that it was a no brainer that we would ask Christo to complete the second stage. At all stages of the work Christo has been able to interpret our requirements and then, more importantly, improve on them. He has kept us informed at all stages throughout the projects, including working within agreed budgets. Over all we have been very happy with Christo’s work and would be happy to recommend his work to prospective clients. Paul and Pam

We recently engaged Christo & Jenny to assist us with our interior and landscape design for our new build. During our initial meeting we found Christo & Jenny very friendly and welcoming and they spent the time to understand our personal lifestyle along with individual style influences around interior and exterior designs. Over the coming weeks we provided additional information to assist them further.

When we met for our second meeting we were blown away with the presentation Christo and Jenny provided. They completely understood our scope and gave us a very detailed mood board for our interior and landscape design - the flow between internal and external is harmonious.

We absolutely love what they have put together and can’t wait to see the final project complete.

Thank you again for your hard work.

I want to thank you. Most people I have spoken too down here don't want to know about my home in Auckland, unless I have a home here they couldn't be bothered. You took on the challenge anyway and came up with some fantastic ideas, which I know Rowan and I can't wait to start implementing. Well I can't! You have been working almost blind and yet the design is amazing. I couldn't be happier. And it's going to be great to go back to Auckland and say my garden was designed by Christo from Blenheim.

January 15, 2013 Testimonials "Thanks again Christo for the inspirational landscaping plans!! We were very impressed with your vision for our desperate looking section! The plans you created have exceeded our expectations- we love how you found potential in every bit of space and have created a theme and flow that will no doubt complement our new house! We cant wait to get started, and with your very helpful planting guide you have made that task even easier for us!! Thanks again Christo- we would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone like us who loves getting out in the garden but needs the inspiration and knowledge to get started!"

Dear Christo, Thank you so much for the beautiful garden design you created for us. You've managed to do exactly what we wanted – with all the practical aspects and planting we required – but in such an imaginative and exciting way. We love the extra ideas you came up with: particularly the children's play area with the shade sails and garden ‘islands’ to run around; and the vege garden with its hedge border, potted herb garden and the arbour. Besides wanting to hang the design on the wall (it’s beautiful enough), we can’t wait to get stuck in and start landscaping. We look forward to sharing a wine on that deck one day". Caroline and Ants

Colin and myself commissioned Christo to design and landscape our section last year, 2012. His expertise overwhelmed us as he transformed our section into a tropical easy care paradise. A year on and Christo still keeps in touch to see how the trees and plants are doing. We would highly recommend Christo and would, in our opinion, class him as number one landscape designer in Marlborough. Many thanks Christo.
