Charlotte Pederson- Director of Espaso Verde, Landscape Design


Charlotte is Espaso Verde’s principle designer. Charlotte studied Landscape Design and Construction at the Waikato Institute of Technology based at The Hamilton gardens and holds Dip Tech Landscape Design and Cert Horticulture.

Much of Charlotte’s inspiration comes from her travels visiting some of the most famous and beautiful gardens in the world, and she combines this backdrop with her love of colour and design to create innovative and inspiring settings. Charlotte’s passion for plants and attention to detail forms the base of her elegant style that works in either contemporary or traditional gardens.

Charlotte she comes from a family of talented gardeners and grew up talking green. She has done the hard graft in family gardens as well as the mindful design work –  it’s part of the reason why she is so successful in creating gardens for others.
