Lynley - Head Designer

Originally from the King Country, Lynley Fife moved to Cambridge with her husband Paul and three children and established Line and Design in 1999, pursuing her long held passion for landscape design. Lynley has a wealth of knowledge in plant varieties for the Waikato climate, providing clients with design orientated yet sustainable landscapes. She specialises in highly personalised design plans and her portfolio of work includes subdivisions, showhomes and many residential landscapes going on to feature in public garden showings and landscape publications. To compliment her passion for design Lynley opened The Garden Art Studio located at 1242 Kaipaki Road, Cambridge (click here to see more). The studio won the Waipa Networks Supreme Business of the Year Award in 2006 together with awards for excellence in innovation, excellence in tourism, and best emerging new business.  In Nov 2013 the studio was sold to an art passionate Cambridge couple allowing Lynley to concentrate fully on Line & design, a strong relationship with the studio remains.  Lynley currently heads a team of 3 designers.
