Great design starts with a great designer. Zones have different design options to meet the type and scale of your project. We can offer designs from basic, colour-rendered sketches and architecturally drawn concept plans, to 3D photo-realistic images.
The term ‘outdoor room’ has come about following an evolution of what might previously have been called ‘the patio’ or ‘the bbq area’. A modern-day outdoor room serves several functions, including extending your living areas, ensuring longevity, improving indoor-outdoor flow, and giving you more privacy. By incorporating heating, cooling, windbreak and shading solutions, you can extend your life outside during the cooler and warmer months.
Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular in recent years, with people choosing to add all-seasons al fresco dining areas that more than match their indoor counterparts. At Zones we seek to understand your objectives before applying our industry knowledge and experience to deliver an outdoor cooking and dining solution to suit your needs.
DECKS & PERGOLAS
While pergolas usually refer to a timber structure, Zones also offers opening roof solutions that allow for the opening and closing of louvres, to protect from or expose the sky above. Timber tends to be the natural choice for decks and patios, but there are many other materials like coloured concrete, that can be cost-effective as well as extremely durable and versatile.
DRIVEWAYS & PATHS
A driveway is the entrance to your home and has an important role to play in the street appeal and creating your home’s first impression. Whether you prefer concrete, clay, pebbles, stones or asphalt, Zones will provide you with a quality driveway or path that is designed and installed using best practices.
The most common forms of retaining walls in New Zealand are gravity, piling or post, cantilevered or anchored. Zones carefully designs and builds all retaining walls taking structural, geotechnical and hydraulic factors into account.
FENCING & GATES
To ensure your fence is built to last, Zones only uses quality materials - taking into account ground conditions, existing house design and slope. We can advise you and assist with obtaining a resource consent. Contact Zones to design and build a fence or gate that meets your needs and your budget.
Swimming pools not only provide cool relief from the hot days of summer, but also a focal point for family, friends and relaxation. Due to the technical, engineering, consent, design and practical aspects, swimming pools require the highest levels of technical knowledge and experience. The surrounding landscape must also be carefully designed to avoid sun glare, slipping and improve durability. Contact Zones for a total pool and landscape solution.
GARDENS & PLANTING
Zones Landscaping designers can design, build and maintain a beautiful garden for you. We will take into account how much involvement you would like to have in managing it. If gardening is your pastime then let’s work together to create something that matches your gardening enthusiasm. Or if you prefer to look at your garden, rather than work in it, let’s design a garden that suits.
LAWNS & GRASS
Growing grass and tending beautiful lawns are part of New Zealand. Backyard sports, family gatherings, picnics and street appeal are some of the many reasons behind our obsession with a well clipped and manicured lawn. At Zones we have the expertise to create a pristine natural or instant lawn.
LIGHTING & POWER
Lighting can make a huge difference to your garden, landscape or outdoor living space by adding ambience when the sun goes down and highlighting features in your garden. Incorporating lighting into initial designs can be cost effective in the long run and minimize any disruptions to already installed systems.
Increasing desire for more efficient use of water has led to the development of some fantastic rainwater systems. Zones can design the right technical rainwater system according to its council requirements and integrate it into your landscape to minimize any visual impact.
MAINTAIN & CLEAN
Having a regular maintenance plan can save you the pain of a significant clean-up cost after a long period of neglect. Choose from Zones maintenance visits of weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, or annual plans. With this flexibility you are able to maintain your landscape with ease.
