A well-executed landscape design will entirely transform your property. While the visual elements are important, fine-tuning the layout and optimising functionality is much more crucial. Because come the end of the day, when you’re sitting outside by your crackling fireplace, if the seating isn’t comfortable or the surrounding trees hide your sunset, you won’t be quite so satisfied. When it comes to landscape design, it’s all about strategic planning.

What are the current landscape design trends in Christchurch?

Why should your living area be limited to indoor space? Many homeowners in Christchurch are looking for opportunities to expand their living area outdoors, with decks being a popular option to create functional spaces for outdoor living. These platforms can be made unique to your property by customising the wood variety, plank size, and stain shade, making them easy to blend seamlessly with your home. To achieve this sleek look, more and more Christchurch homeowners are installing ground-level decks that sink into the earth and minimise their appearance altogether. 

Looking at planting trends, New Zealand’s native plants have exploded in popularity and come with considerable benefits. For one, native plants thrive in Christchurch’s fertile soil, often needing minimal care and attention – great for those who desire a low maintenance garden. But in addition, and making perhaps the greatest advantage, native shrubbery, trees, and bushes such as Kōwhai, Harakeke flax, and Wineberry shrub will attract native birds. With these plants added to your property, you can spend time in your garden enjoying the beautiful bird song of tuis and admiring the inquisitive nature of little wax eyes.
