Landscaping New Zealand

The Association for Professionals

Executive Team

Adam Pollard - President

Adam Pollard - President I have been involved in the landscape industry for over twenty years now and have served on past Executive Committees in a number of roles including President.

I represented Landscaping New Zealand on the Board of the Horticulture ITO (apprentice training) and became chair of this Board until we merged to form the Primary ITO.  I remained a board member for another 2 years.  I now chair the Amenity Industry Partnership Group for this organisation to promote the needs of training in our industry.
I have a very clear focus for my term as President this time. We need to look to the future of our organisation and how we continue to be, and strengthen our relevance to our members and the public.
I am lucky to have a great team with me on the Executive Committee and look forward to working with them to achieve our goals.

Leen (Lane) Braam - Treasurer

Leen (Lane) Braam - Treasurer The Treasurer is the Chief Financial management officer for the Landscaping New Zealand and as such I am directly responsible to the President/Executive and members of Landscaping New Zealand.

Being an Executive member means giving something back to an organisation I believe in and to me it is important that the wider landscape industry has an organisation to be our voice and conscience.

I have been a member since the mid eighties.

For 18 years I have been an equal business partner in Martin and Braam Landscapes and when we split that business into a garden centre and Landscape division we (my wife and I) became the sole owners of Braam Landscapes Unlimited! in 2000. 

We work with our dedicated team and are a landscape design and construction company.

Business Manager


Irene Collins - Administration Manager

I joined Landscaping New Zealand 8 years ago as Administration Manager. My prime duties are to liaise with and assist the Executive with the management of our association.

I support the Executive Committee in their individual roles, look after the finances, assist the Membership Chair to promote membership benefits and endeavour to secure new members, along with the general administration that an organisation such as ours requires.

Attending the Executive Committee Meetings gives me an insight into the professional body of Landscaping New Zealand and I am proud to see the effort our Executive put into their portfolios to ensure our members and sponsors receive the best they can from our organisation.
