About Us

Hi. I'm Steve Pinkerton, the owner/operator of Vege Build. For the past 17 years I've helped home owners and lifestyle block residents plan and build their ideal garden.


I've done it all - from creating a vertical vegetable wall in a tiny postage stamp sized inner city garden - to large raised garden beds on lifestyle blocks - and fully caged gardens to prevent possums abseiling into the cabbages!

I build in sustainable wood products, preferably macrocarpa or redwood - as these are durable with a natural resistance to decay and insect attack and very suitable for non-structural landscaping projects like vegetable gardens. 

Plan & design your ideal edible garden

Every garden is different. Some customers have a specific idea of what they want built, others need a helping hand to decide on a plan and get started. We start by seeking to understand your needs via a no-obligation chat (on phone or Zoom).  The next step is a visit to your site, so we can discuss options and agree on a plan. After that we scope the costs and prepare an email quote.

We are locals like you

My wife and I moved into the Kaipara district in May 2021. We live on a rural property near Kaiwaka. Prior to that we spent 16 years on a lifestyle property in Dairy Flat (we got there when it was rural and left when the council decided to change the area into an urban/industrial construction site.)
