What Does It Cost To Landscape Your Backyard in Rodney?

Whether you’re contemplating outdoor shutters, need backyard hardscape ideas, or want to know if it’s worth adding a porch, our experienced landscape consultants are here to help. They’ve broken down many of the factors that affect landscaping costs to help you plan and prepare for your dream outdoor transformation.  

If you’re ready to level up your outdoor living but are scared of blowing the budget, our team can break down the cost of landscaping services and design and deliver beautiful landscaping and outdoor renovations that are tailored to your needs.

Ready? Let’s dig in!

Size Matters

The size of your home and property will affect how much it costs to landscape your backyard. Bigger decks, patios, and gardens will require more materials and plants which will increase your costs. If you’re concerned about budget though, there are many ways to minimise costs by choosing wallet friendly features and materials, so don’t let a large area deter you from making a change! Your Zones Consultant will work with you to design a custom solution that suits your needs – and budget.

(P.S. If you’re worried about only having a small space to work with – don’t! We can help you turn your tiny backyard into something special.)

Material World

Your choice of materials and finishes will influence the cost of your landscaping. If you’re on a tight budget, opt for a basic landscaped garden and cost-saving features such as pine decking and larger grass areas. High end landscaping will include designer materials such as schist or granite paving, and features such as louvre roofing and in-built fireplaces. There are even choices for lawn, including artificial turf as in this Silverdale garden. Your Zones Landscaping Consultant can help you decide where to splurge and where to save, as some more expensive materials may be worth it in the long run.

Decking makes a Difference

There are different decking options to suit all budgets. Pine is one of the most cost-effective but does require more maintenance, whereas hardwood or composite decking are more expensive but longer lasting. Incorporating pergolas, louvre roofing, in-built seating and privacy screens will also add to the cost of your deck. Your Landscaping Consultant can talk you through all the pros and cons of different decks (plus deck roof costs) to help you make a choice that suits your budget and lifestyle. 

Making a Splash

Pools are an exciting landscaping feature that can make your property feel like a private resort, but they do come at a cost depending on the size and style of your pool. Concrete, fibreglass, in ground, above ground, salt water, infinity – there are many options to consider. Our Landscaping Consultants work with experienced pool designers and companies to make the most of your property and budget so it’s worth enquiring to see if installing a new pool can work for you. 

Entertainment Zone

Landscaping doesn’t end with plants and pathways. Outdoor kitchens, BBQ patios, pizza ovens, fire pits, outdoor sound systems, custom lighting, and spas are all possible and can create your dream outdoor entertainment zone for friends and family. This idyllic landscape transformation in Kumeu includes a covered deck and woodfire pizza oven, while this outdoor renovation in Rodney focuses around a luxe BBQ area. Choosing high end features like this will increase the cost of your landscaping, but many customers like the outdoor living it offers. Even mid-range landscaped gardens can prioritise entertainment features with careful planning – so be sure to let your Landscaping Consultant know about your goals!

Softscaping vs Hardscaping

Hardscaping and softscaping are both important parts of any landscaping project and complement each other to create a beautiful backyard space, as seen in this Rodney makeover. Softscaping refers to the living elements of your landscaping including flowers, shrubs, lawn, trees, and soil, whereas hardscaping elements are patios, decks, edging, and drives made from stone, bricks, concrete, wood, or metal. Both elements will affect the cost of your landscaping project, with hardscaping investments such as decks and fencing often representing a significant part of your budget. As always, there are wallet friendly choices that can be made for both hard and softscaping, so it pays to get advice from your experienced Zones Landscaping Consultant.
