About Us

Canterbury Landscape Designers

Billygoat Landscape Architecture (BGLA) have a passion for landscape architecture and a love of good garden design. We want to provide new homeowners with a landscape that not only compliments their new house, but also allows them the opportunity to fully en joy and take pride in their garden too. We aim to create landscapes that are beautiful, affordable and user friendly: they are the everyday extraordinary!

We are a local team of passionate designers that work with a variety of customers to help them create amazing outdoor spaces that do more than just complement the house. As landscape gardeners based in Christchurch, Canterbury, we have years of industry experience and an unquenchable passion for landscaping and architecture. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you are interested in, because we can always design a space that is completely unique to you. We are always happy to work with your ideas, but can take the reins if you don’t know where to start.

As we are only a small team of landscape gardeners, we like to get our hands dirty on each and every project. However, we love to keep you a part of the process and enjoy collaborating with our clients by sharing, discussing and refining ideas. This helps the project grow and gives us the ability to satisfy your needs to the highest standard. We have also fostered strong relationships with other industry professionals over the years, and can draw on their experience to give you the best possible result.
