About us

My name is Amber and I've been helping people clean up and maintain their suburban gardens on Aucklands Northshore since 2009. In 2017 I launched The Able Gardener with an ethos to provide local, friendly and environmentally conscious garden services to Northcote and Birkenhead and the surrounding suburbs.

At The Able Gardener we work quickly and efficiently with a wealth of knowledge behind us and I'm proud of the fact that much of our business comes from personal recommendations.

Clean ups, Maintenance and Design

Preparation and attention to detail

The Able Gardener is committed to getting the job done whether you need a one off clean up or regular garden maintenance. You can count on us to have the right tools for the job so we can be efficient every step of the way.

And if it's a new direction you're looking for or need some ideas for a tricky corner, The Able Gardener will work with you to create or enhance your garden using the colours and plants you love. We can manage all or part of your project from start to finish allowing you to be involved as little or as much as possible.


Pruning, Weeding and Spraying

Expert Service

Regular pruning creates more flowers, greater fruit yields and keeps trees and shrubs in shape. The Able Gardener are able to take care of most pruning needs and can arrange a local arborist for larger tree jobs when necessary.

We cut weeds out from the root ensuring that with regular maintenance over time, your garden will become virtually weed free.

When spraying, The Able Gardener are committed to using weed spray that is Glyphosate free, due to it's impact on the environment and in particular our precious honeybees and aquaculture. We mix our own spray which is non toxic and extremely effective, cutting down time spent weeding by hand, which saves you money.


Our Clients say....

“Amber came highly recommended to me by a local friend on the North Shore. 

I employed Amber in 2017 to completely revamp my back yard (which was a huge mess) as I prepared my house for sale. I showed her some photos of another garden I liked and she quickly worked up a plan from there. Amber project managed the full job (making it completely hassle free), including bringing in her arborist to tidy up the trees, removal of plants, clearing and preparing the space, purchasing of new plants, preparing the soil and then planting out the back yard and around a smaller cottage. She also recommended a lawn man to lay the new lawn. 

The overall transformation was profound. When I went on to sell my house I had multiple offers and lots of comments regarding the appealing garden. I also kept Amber on to maintain the garden during the house sale period and have recommended her to the new owner (who is keeping her on) and others. My mother just told me she was so impressed with her work, she is intending to employ her for a job! 

Amber is efficient, professional and has a great vision and eye for what works. She is also trustworthy and experienced. Amber did a beautiful job on the garden and I am very grateful. 

I highly recommend Amber for all gardening jobs - large and small."

"Amber Connolly has been  gardening and outdoor property maintenance work for our Family Trust since April 2009. Initially the work was ad hoc to bring two properties back to their former glory. We were really impressed with her efficiency, speed, friendliness, dedication and the end result so we continued to give her more work including our other properties. She has been doing regular maintenance work for the Trust since February 2016 and we cannot recommend her highly enough."
