Creating a Resort-style Backyard in Mount Eden Auckland

After spending so much time at home throughout COVID, Claire, the owner of this Mount Eden bungalow, was motivated to upgrade her property. With fitness and entertaining as priorities, Claire decided a pool would be the perfect centrepiece for her new backyard.

Having recently observed friends go through a pool installation process, she recognised the value of a professionally managed outdoor renovation, especially one as transformative as the one she envisaged. Local Zones Landscaping Consultant Freda Yang visited Claire’s property during their initial consultation to discuss her goals, budget, and design ideas, and set realistic expectations around a timeline.

Upgrading a Swimming Pool, Garden, and Outdoor Dining Area in the North Shore

Although this North Shore home already had all the foundations for an outdoor entertainment space, it needed a new design and planting plan to help create defined areas to entertain guests and relax. Zones landscaping specialists Matt and Boyd Gillespie were brought in to develop a detailed design to update the overgrown and antiquated back garden and pool. They went on to clear the original landscaping and installed new Kwila decking, pine retaining, planter boxes, refurbished the pool area with glass fencing, fixed coloured concrete patios, an alloy louvred roof with aluminium framing, and finally, updated the property’s planting and gardens. The project took 2 months to complete and the final cost came to $100,000. Take a look at the gorgeous result.  

Revamping a Pool, Lawn, and Garden in Rodney

Landscaping specialist Judd Stratful took only 6 weeks to update this Rodney backyard; which included building a deck around the pool using garapa decking timber, constructing a small house around the pool pump, installing black aluminium fencing that met local pool regulations, and retaining the lawn area to give it an infinity lawn feeling. To wrap up, she framed the property with planter beds, and planted & mulched the garden to include fruit trees, coprosma, pleached ficus tuffi, and Corokia Geenty's Green hedging. The full project cost $60,000. Check out the attractive relaxation space.
