Darren Barrett


Darren heads up Natural Habitats' Auckland-based operations including the Care Division, Landscape Development Division, and the Landscapes (Residential) Division.

He brings more than 15 year's of knowledge and experience to the role including practical and managerial expertise gained from running high end, award-winning residential landscapes and commercial projects. 

His enthusiasm for Natural Habitats and its innovative and ground breaking initiatives, such as Green Walls and EcoPillows, has seen him steadily advance into more senior management roles within the company. In his previous role as Landscape Divisional Manager, Darren’s main focal point was working with staff to ensure they had the skills and knowledge to complete the work to the highest standard. 

In 2008 Darren was awarded Young Landscaper of the year and has since mentored other staff members who have successfully won the title. 

As Auckland Regional Manager, Darren is focused on our operations running efficiently, safely, and to the highest quality standards, ensuring our clients’ expectations of award-winning landscapes are fulfilled.
