Sandii has been in the garden all her life, she is passionate about design and all things green. A well regarded photographer for many years Sandii now runs the business and design side of things, keeps on top of drawings and planning and collaborates on design development with Jared and Rachael. She is mad about plants with extensive plant knowledge, masses of creativity and life influences, Sandii is pretty fussy about how things should look and function, and (as a busy mum) understands the needs of other families well.
With over 15 years experience, the charming Jared started out initially specialising in stonewalls and building work. He is well known for his lovely gentle manner and ability to work like two people at once, in fact we often say "if only there were two of him." He has the ability to interpret a site and enhance the features and atmosphere, preferring to use mostly natural materials to compliment architecture and the surrounding environment. He is a careful and meticulous craftsman who leaves you with another dimension to your life, not just a garden. Jared's extensive experience in constructing and maintaining gardens in the Auckland area is invaluable to anyone wanting to start a project.
Fidelis is like an Ox and we mean that as a compliment — he’s the strongest guy we have ever met, everyone in the team is constantly in awe of of his muscles. He's a lovely warm and gentle guy and a dad of three. His enviable work ethic is an inspiration to all the young kids, you might even get lucky and see his beautiful Samoan tattoos!
Rachael is Gold in the design side of Babylon, her amazing ability to interpret Sandii's ideas and produce beautiful drawings with a lovely aesthetic are what our clients love, She also delights us every week with her choice of fabulous outfits. (yes I'm talking about that sunny yellow maxi!)
Jamie works with us part time while she studies Ecology at Auckland University. Jamie is your quintessential outdoor girl — horses, kayaks, snow caves, mountains — mad about them all! Jamie is also Sandii’s niece, or ‘fake baby’ as we call her.
Jacki is a numbers girl, that's five kids, six horses, loads of cars and she also does the Accounts and Admin, Jacki is a godsend for the office. She is also a super valuable relieving kindy teacher and the most popular lady amongst four year olds in Auckland we are betting.
Mostly takes notes... and barks at the deliveries guys.
