Jared Gallagher ~ Owner and Project Manager
Jared oversees all aspects of managing the build on-site, ensuring the communication with the client is clear at all times. His specific skills include carpentry and construction, concrete and plaster work, plumbing and irrigation.
Jared grew up in Canterbury and has a wealth of experience in the design, construction and education sectors. With a passion for design and sustainability he has high standards of craftsmanship with a finish quality that is second to none.
Jared has recently taken over Natureflow from Rob Strohdach who established the company in Christchurch and Jared continues to provide the same style and high quality outcomes for customers that Natureflow has become well known for.
Jared loves to create unique designs for clients and in particular enjoys projects that include projects with curved or organic shapes and forms. He specialises in curved decking, concrete paths, paving, and free-flowing curved concrete block walls for sandpits and the like – not a preferred choice among many tradesmen, but Jared enjoys the challenge and the added value this gives to the finished landscape.

We had Rob recommended to us and we couldn’t have been happier with his work ethic, professionalism and personal approach to the job. He knows his stuff in terms of legal requirements for children playgrounds and approaches the job as if it was for himself taking great care to achieve a very high standard result within tight time frames.
Rob went above and beyond working one night till dark to make sure it was
