When we planted the first of 1000 red tussocks, they went in just in time as the forecast that night was up to 40cm of snow down to 400m... and this property is at around 550m. This project was done by a Zones landscaping specialist Shane Woonton.
Suzanne and Danny Sherwin had renovated their home but their outdoor area was left lacking. They wanted to install an easy to maintain, resort-like outdoor area which would flow from the home’s interior and increase their privacy. Take a look how our Franklin landscape designers made their dreams come true!
The clients wanted a low maintenance garden and tasked Zones with minimising garden bed areas, raising and straightening the lines of the garden borders and creating a flat and usable space. Most interestingly, they wanted a play area where their kids could run and ride their bikes. The use of artificial turf, smooth concrete and new aluminium fencing made it safe for children. This project was done by Zones landscaping specialists Stuart and Debbie Gill.
The client wanted a 10-meter planter box built along the driveway - which sounded unusual at first - but worked in the end! The project included some low maintenance planting, hedging for privacy and courtyard paving. This project was done by Zones landscaping specialists Glen and Tracey Barker.
There were two main priorities for this project: the gate and the hydro-seeding lawn. The gate that the client wanted was to exactly replicate an existing one from Waiuku gates and it had to suit their budget. The clients were thrilled with the results. This project was done by Zones landscaping specialists Glen and Tracey Barker.
Zones transformed this dated and shady area on a hillside section into a usable, family-friendly outdoor living space. The project involved removing the existing lawn, re-boxing hedges and installing artificial turf to counter poor growth conditions. Zones was able to reuse existing stone from the property, giving something old a new lease of life, while also incorporating new features. This project was done by Zones landscaping specialists Joel and Chris Johnston.
The clients wanted Zones to replace their existing damaged retaining wall while also creating a barrier to prevent their grandkids from falling over the edge of the raised area. Enabling the space to be used as a family area and making it visually appealing was an interesting challenge!
Most landscaping projects tend to serve a specific purpose, like transforming an unused space into something more functional. But when Andrew and Zelda Tucker asked Zones for help to transform their Hamilton backyard, it was for something much more special.
With a somewhat ill-defined brief that included low maintenance planting, a feng shui influence, and increased privacy, a landscaping project in one of Auckland’s popular eastern suburbs promised plenty of challenges for Zones landscaping specialists Debbie and Stuart Gill.
When Zones franchisee Kate Ryan commenced the back yard make-over of a Panmure home, she was given a head start by her clients: They knew how they wanted the space to look when finished and they supplied her with a landscape plan and layout.
Andrew and Julia Ward wanted their Pukekohe home outdoor area to be low-maintenance, stylish, functional, and perfect for entertaining. Zones specialist Debbie Gill designed a space that is every homeowner’s dream.
Zones specialists Matt and Boyd Gillespie took on this landscaping challenge and transformed a steep unusable backyard into a beautiful, multi-leveled and adaptable garden.
Steep slopes are always a hard workaround when it comes to landscaping and this was certainly the case for a property in the North Shore suburb of Beach Haven.
The last time we visited the couple in Wellington, they were designing and planning their low-maintenance garden of their dreams. Now we look at the approval process of achieving council consent for the go ahead.
Take an under-utilised, recently developed section and turn it into a lush green oasis. Now there’s a challenge.
