Whether you’re building your dream home, renovating a property or just want to improve the quality of your life outside, there are lots of things you can do to transform your backyard.
One of the first things to consider is your soil type and how it will affect your landscape design. You can get a good idea of this by doing a little research online or speaking to a landscaping specialist.
Bespoke Landscape Designs
A bespoke landscape design can be a wonderful way to create a special outdoor space that you, your family and guests will love. The team at Landscaping Auckland can help you find a solution that fits your budget, style and outdoor needs.
One of our recent projects saw a retired couple from Remuera rejuvenate their garden. Located around a stunning black and white-clad home, the planting was lacking vigour and needed to be vibrant, bold yet considered in its use of colour and texture.
Kate Ryan, Zones Landscaping’s principal designer, was able to create an attractive, modern, tropical resort-inspired landscape that met the client’s brief and delivered the desired results. Her attention to detail and strong communication throughout the entire project helped the clients feel confident their new landscape will grow well over time.
Outdoor Rooms & Gardens
The latest trends in garden design are aimed at creating functional and entertaining outdoor spaces that blend seamlessly with their surroundings. The sub-tropical sub-parallelogram is a popular choice, and it’s not uncommon to see palms, agaves, bananas, canna lilies and hibiscus among other tropical plants on display. Some of the most interesting landscape features are incorporated as integral parts of the overall plan, including meadowscapes that support bird and insect life.
Putting together an outdoor room – or several in fact – that stands out from the crowd is a real challenge, but it doesn’t have to be a black hole of frustration. Getting the right mix of trees, shrubs and perennials in the correct places is key to achieving an attractive and functional garden that will serve you well for many years to come. The best way to achieve this is to consult an experienced landscape designer to help you decide what’s feasible in your specific context.
Irrigation systems help you keep your grass, shrubs and plants healthy throughout the year. They also help conserve water and eliminate the need for manual lawn watering.
Whether your property has an existing irrigation system or you’re looking to install one, Landscaping Auckland can provide professional, reliable and effective solutions to ensure your garden remains in the best possible condition. We offer a range of different irrigation options to meet your specific needs, including drip irrigation, micro jet irrigation and flood irrigation.
For a cost-effective irrigation solution, advanced micro-jet irrigation systems are an excellent choice. They can help to target the roots of your plant and minimise water waste. They are also a great way to avoid water loss due to evaporation and deep percolation.
