Living in Franklin is all about achieving a balanced lifestyle. Zones’ Franklin and Pukekohe landscape designers can help you achieve just that.

The Franklin District has a fantastic spread of architectural styles; from classic early settlement homes in weatherboard and iron, to the recently built modern homes in new subdivisions such as Karaka. Whatever your home style, your Zones landscape designer can produce a design that suits your house type, section size and slope. They will also take privacy, aspect (eg north facing, south facing, etc), soil conditions and access into account. 

Franklin is famous for its rich soil as well as its long standing agricultural industry; supplying Kiwi staples such as potatoes and lettuces. But across Franklin there are variances in the soil types which are critical to understand when creating planting plans. The climate, being close to the Manukau harbour, is largely coastal and subject to salty and windblown conditions as well as cool winter months with fog and frost - so this is also taken into account when selecting plant types.

To help the team deliver on time and to budget, Zones use cloud based IT systems which help to keep the budget, time frames, communication and project plan on track throughout the design, quote and build stages.

Having the right technical skills and qualifications is critical, as is complying with local council regulations. Some of the regulations that the Franklin team take into account are the requirement for building or resource consent (or sometimes both), the application of best practice health and safety systems and environmental laws. There are also certain landscaping projects, such as decks and retaining walls, that may require the expertise of a licensed building practitioner. 

Your local landscaping specialists will ensure your project is managed to the highest standard - taking your style, specifications, budget, timeline and local regulations into account when creating your dream outdoor design.

“Stu and his Franklin team are great. They have listened to our crazy needs and adapted and compromised with us to achieve what will be, at the end of the landscape, a perfect garden. We have already recommended Stu to a friend of ours."
