Whether you are thinking about landscaping your forever home or an investment property, there is plenty to love about living in Palmerston North and Manawatu. There are also a few essential things that every homeowner should know before they begin a landscaping project in this vibrant community. 

Anyone who lives in Palmy knows that, while the summers are stunning, the winter is sure to bring a decent amount of wind and rain. So selecting plants, materials and structures that will function well in this climate is important. Our team can support you in choosing all of the right plants and materials for your personal taste, climate and budget. 

When it comes to choosing a landscaping style that works for you, there is generally no right or wrong. However, being aware of local landscaping trends can be helpful for those who are looking for inspiration. Native planting, decks that will soak up the sun, and fenced off backyards that provide a safe space for young families are popular priorities for many Palmerston North and Manawatu homeowners. New driveways, tidy gardens and newly installed paving are other popular choices - particularly for homeowners who are wanting to improve the street view of their property.  

When building outdoor structures in Palmerston North and Manawatu, it’s important to note what projects do and don’t require council consent. Retaining walls, swimming pools, spa pools and decks are among the many projects that have specific guidelines surrounding building consent. When you work with Zones, a landscaping specialist will ensure that all work is carried out in accordance with local standards. 

Whatever your landscaping ideas may be, Zones’ bespoke design and build process allows us to support you in creating highly personalised outdoor spaces that suit your style and budget. Contact us today for a free landscaping consultation.
