Joe first discovered his love of landscaping whilst visiting old English country gardens with his parents as a youngster.
After finishing school Joe carried out an apprenticeship and later, a City and Guilds qualification in Amenity Horticulture and Construction.
After starting and running a landscaping company in England, he and his Kiwi wife made the move to New Zealand in 2014. Upon arrival in New Zealand, Joe worked as a Stonemason, to improve and perfect his skills using the different types of rock that New Zealand has to offer.
He then created Lakeside Landscapes and has steadily grown, creating some interesting projects throughout the Auckland area in both domestic properties and commercial areas.
