My name is Michael Wheatcroft

I designed my first landscape in 1996 and since then, I have helped a wide range of clients with a variety of property types, ranging from small courtyard spaces, residential gardens, large lifestyle properties and commercial developments.

In 2001, I established Form & Foliage to offer my landscaping design services to people in Auckland. Choosing me to bring your garden ideas to life assures you experience, great vision, expertise, and the very best result for your outdoor space.

What to expect?

We first discuss what you have in mind over the phone, and I will explain the design process required to bring your ideas to life

The next stage is to measure your outdoor areas, take photographs and produce a Site Plan. The Preliminary Concept will be presented to you, with images of the materials and plants and then following your feedback, your Landscape Concept and Planting Plan is finalised, ensuring you a harmonious, low maintenance plant selection. It is made super easy for you!

Following completion of the landscape design the next stage is the coordination of the development of your project to meet your budget, and the installation, that I fully manage by being the key person between you and the construction team, communicating the project development, making sure that everyone knows exactly what to do and that everything is done as expected.

At this point, it’s time… to enjoy your wonderful new garden, invite your family and friends and create beautiful memories!







He genuinely listened to what we wanted for our garden and came up with a design that we both loved and which complemented the house perfectly. The garden has been finished for almost a year now and it has been a real pleasure watching the garden grow and mature.

He transformed bare land to a low-maintenance garden for a young family to play in and spaces for us to enjoy outdoor living. The section was an awkward shape, but he managed to bring symmetry and create the garden we were after. We were so pleased with Michael’s work first time around we called him back in again.

Our garden was a blank canvas, unattractive with an expired play hut. Everything has been expertly constructed. Our garden is now an outdoor extension of our home, with the spa pool tucked away where we can sit back and relax. The garden undoubtedly contributed to the value and sale of our property despite the recession.

My husband and I employed Michael Wheatcroft of Form & Foliage to design a garden for our home and have since enjoyed living in a beautiful environment that couldn’t have been better suited to our lifestyle. Over the years it has been a pleasure to entertain in and watch the plants evolve in harmony.
