Kim Odering has spent more than three decades shaping beautiful, functional gardens and outdoor spaces. Renowned for her inimitable style and industry expertise, Kim’s firm grasp on the how-to of her craft comes from her background years within the family-owned Oderings garden centre business. She could probably coax nature’s finest rewards from the surface of the moon. But her real talent is for inspired solutions tailored to her clients’ lifestyle – designing for tomorrow’s needs as well as today’s. Pragmatic, her refreshing spade-is-a-spade approach is accompanied by reassuring traces of soil beneath her fingernails. Her genuine care and respect for nature’s offerings is matched only by that for her clients and everything that matters to them.
Eugene Evgenov’s capacity for the practical, and sheer enthusiasm for getting things done properly, lends the perfect support to Kim’s creative force. His interest in gardens and landscaping began in his native Russia, where, from a young age, he would expertly plan, cultivate and tend to the sprawling garden of his family’s summer home. His transition to working with New Zealand plant life was made easy by its similarity to that of his homeland. A strategic thinker and KO & CO’s go-to problem solver, Eugene's landscaping knowledge and expertise has extended with his experience working alongside his wife and business partner, Kim.
Behind every great KO & CO project there’s a dedicated support team of artists, designers, land movers and all-round good sorts with all the skills, talent and thumbs-up attitude to get the job done just as it should be.
