Trish has worked on various projects over the years, has a strong sense of design, innovative use of materials and structural planting with distinctive contrasting combinations. Her landscapes have a strong relationship with building architecture. She is keen to stretch the boundaries and take clients outside their comfort zones. Her gardens display a New Zealand identity although not consciously intended.

‘... Trish Bartleet is the most original and confident designer here in Auckland...’ Design comes naturally to her and she has turned some depressingly difficult areas into highly attractive outdoor living spaces. – Rose Thodey.
