Kensington Landscaping - Overview
If the name ‘Kensington’ conjures-up thoughts of royalty, then the founder’s deliberate attempt to associate his business with the world famous royal parks & gardens in London has clearly worked. In fact, Kensington Landscaping founder Rob Figgins, was responsible for Kensington Gardens London before returning to New Zealand to start the business in 2003. One might say, “the business has a fine lineage”.
A right royal gardening background
Originally from Rotorua, Rob has worked extensively in the landscaping industry for most of his working life. After venturing to the UK, the hard worker literally ‘mowed’ his way up the ranks to become manager of the picturesque Kensington Gardens where as one would expect, standards were extremely high. Fastidious attention to detail, physical strength and extraordinary dedication, enabled Rob to achieve an extremely high standard of workmanship. Upon returning to New Zealand to raise a family after 11 years in the UK, Rob started Kensington Landscaping in East Auckland.
Now, world famous in East Auckland
Credited with the transformation of countless east Auckland landscapes, Rob and his experienced and highly qualified team, surprise and delight their clients with stunning outdoor solutions for a wide range of budgets. Whether a quick and affordable job or large-scale project, Kensington Landscaping goes the extra mile – clearly evidenced by the word-of-mouth referrals they get from happy clients.
From garden maintenance, to building pergolas or designing the perfect landscape, there is no limit to Rob’s ability to visualise and transform a paper plan into something visually and functionally stunning.
“I really enjoy what I do. I get a big kick out of watching an area transform and grow into something truly amazing - making sure the client is happy is my top priority.”
Plain English garden-speak
With an ability to communicate with people from all walks of life and explain technicalities at a layman’s level, Rob gets the point across without confusing anyone. He believes it’s critical from the outset, to ensure everyone knows what to expect and when things should happen. This avoids miscommunication, which can be costly, time-consuming and frustrating.
With full trade certification in horticulture and gardening, Rob didn’t just stumble into landscaping. He has more than 25 years of industry experience and a reputable business. He is extremely passionate about what he does – it’s not just rocks, plants, and pools to him.
“It’s the biggest buzz for me seeing people enjoying an outdoor space I’ve created. I also love the soft landscaping aspect of the job – when everything’s done and all that’s left are the plants which bring the whole area to life.”
