Thelma's objective is to ensure her clients get a creative, functional, unique and beautiful outdoor living area.

How much will my landscaping project cost in Auckland Central?

It depends on the scope of your project. A basic or small landscape architecture project could start at around $4,000*. Something on a larger, more luxurious scale could cost upwards of $100,000*.

  • Zones Landscaping Auckland Central partnered with this homeowner to create a lush low maintenance landscape with this beautiful hardscape design and plant selection for $115,000.

Outdoor spaces with pools are undoubtedly the best for landscape aesthetics. This landscape design features a pool with chic glass fencing for $44,000.

We now have a slimline water tank for our garden use, installed in our driveway. Thelma was very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient, organising trade people who were experienced, skilful and polite. Very happy with the result. Thank you Thelma and the team. Highly recommended.

Guy and his team have worked on two renovations for us and both have been hassle free thanks to their professionalism, consideration and can-do attitude. Genuinely helpful, adaptable in their work and very tidy! A real pleasure to deal with, we wouldn't use anyone else for our building work.

We had our backyard and decking completely revamped by Thelma at Zones and we couldn’t be happier! Thelma was professional, helpful and honest with the design and pricing, not to mention incredibly responsive to all my texts whenever I had a query! She was an expert at managing our job from start to finish, including going out of her way to ensure our new deck was completed to the highest standard. We are so happy with our new backyard, it is an absolute pleasure to see and use.

, Zones Customer

We started off initially with hedge replanting, artificial turf, deck and louvre which rescoped to a full outdoor redesign project. When told Zones we wanted a "no maintenance" outdoor area. Thelma listened to our needs and helped us develop an outdoor area that meets our requirements. Thelma kept us informed throughout the project and was very accommodating with out last minute variations. We are extremely happy with the end result and glad we can enjoy the outdoor space.We are very happy with the service we received from Zones and highly recommend them.

We were totally blown away with the result of our backyard renovations.  Thelma and team took our 'concepts' and transformed them into a stunning reality.  We redeveloped our entire green space, flattening a hilly yard to give us  functional and beautiful terraced backyard living, coupled with our elegant front deck and louvre system we can now boast the best street appeal on the road.  Total professionals from start to finish.  Nothing was too much trouble for this team involving us at every step of the development.  As a friend said to me on seeing the transformation 'It's life changing'!.  Despite Covid hitting us again and halting work, once we were back in level 3 the team picked up and had our landscaping finished in time for us to enjoy summer.  Would highly recommend.

We contacted Zones Landscaping after finding them online and being impressed with the catalogue of recent projects. Our initial inquiry put us in touch with Thelma, who came around to meet us in person, see the space, and talk through what we were looking to achieve, essentially being another "room" for the house and outdoor space for summer entertaining, whilst being low maintenance and works that didn't require a consent. Thelma walked us through the process, and how Zones added value through that process with sourcing of trades and management of the process. The discussion progressed to a meeting with a landscape architect to develop a concept design and talk through the options available to us, whilst also reflecting on budget implications. This was helpful in informing what we could achieve within the limited budget we had. Having an architect right there was an added benefit, being able to get immediate feedback on ideas and thoughts around finish and design.

After finalising the design and budget, Thelma got to work and programmed the works, managing the individual trades to ensure that our goal of works being complete pre-Christmas was achieved. It was great to see works commence and the trades dovetail with each other to ensure that no day was wasted, and certainly gave as an appreciation for the value that Zones and Thelma provide. She was there everyday keeping an eye on things (much to the interest of our dog). The relationships and programming of the works were elements that we underestimated and would have struggled with on our own.

Issues inevitably arose around bad weather, location of services, trenching, availability of concrete colour, and installation of drainage. These were all addressed with urgency to ensure no time was lost, and feedback was sought from us "on the spot" so the team weren't delayed, and critical items like the concrete pour were done so as not to miss opportunities with the various trades. Some of these might have been addressed earlier with a more detailed design and due diligence, but inevitably at a cost and programme impact. We had to go for it, and Thelma got us there.

We are more than happy with the outcome, and it has achieved the key deliverables that we sought. We stretched the budget to include a few extras, which were well worth it. We only wish we had a bit more budget to take advantage of Thelma and her team to fulfill our complete wish list! One day.

Elliot Davis

, Zones Customer

I had come to believe that I would never be able to change the outside area of my house or feel proud of the way our section looks from the street, but I have changed my belief since meeting Thelma. A previous attempt to engage another company to improve our property had failed as they disappeared once they had taken a look at the job. As we lack the skills to do just about any of the landscaping and fencing tasks ourselves, and little faith in any type of contractors, we are incredibly relieved to have Thelma looking after our project.

Thelma contacted us promptly after our initial enquiry with Zones and setting up a briefing meeting was very easy. At our meeting Thelma spent a lot of time listening to my ideas and trying to understand what it is that I want. Thelma has knowledge and experience when it comes to design and I know nothing, but I did not feel like an idiot talking to her. Thelma respected me and worked with my ideas rather than against them, and she seemed genuinely interested in what I was hoping to gain.

I appreciate that we were able to get a simple concept plan completed and then a quote without a lot of delay. I also appreciate that it wasn’t a problem when I made a change to the plan. I’m absolutely thrilled to now have a start date and completion date way ahead of what I imagined when I made my initial enquiry. We have had plenty of communication with Thelma by email, text, phone, and in person which gives us a lot of confidence that she has the drive and capability to get the project completed as we have planned together.

What Thelma Meyer’s customers say about working with Zones®

Frequently asked questions

What are some popular landscaping ideas for outdoor entertainment areas?

Incorporating spa pools into an outdoor area is a common request by Kiwi homeowners as it’s a luxurious item but can often be an eyesore without the proper execution. Whether the spa pool is the focal point of the landscape or simply a design element is up to you.  

Functional yet stylish outdoor BBQ area ideas are another entertaining space staple. They’re not as comprehensive as an outdoor kitchen but still serve as an incredible social hub for parties and gatherings. Simple ideas include a pergola for shelter, weatherproof storage, and seating. But some designs even see the BBQ built into a brick housing or complemented by a wood-burning pizza oven!

What are some garden landscaping ideas?

New Zealand is home to some truly incredible native plants that are great for landscaping; nikau palms, New Zealand flax, pohutukawa, silver ferns, and kawakawa to name a few! Opting for native plants in your garden design will give it the best chance to thrive. 

Simple raised planters or container gardens are great if you’re on a budget or don’t have an abundance of space. You can also find affordable hardscaping materials, such as gravel or loose stones, that are cost-effective alternatives to concrete and pavers which require more labour and expertise to install. 

For more garden landscaping ideas, head over to our inspiration and advice page!

How much does it cost to get a landscape design?

The truth is, it depends. Every project’s scope is different and therefore comes with a unique price tag. Labour and materials costs fluctuate from year to year, making it harder to provide a specific number. But to put things in perspective for you, our Zones Landscaping Consultants have created fantastic landscape designs for Kiwis throughout the country for anywhere from $15,000*-$200,000*+.

You can check out some of our recent landscaping projects to learn more about the process, including detailed costs for each project.

What factors do I need to consider when planning an outdoor entertainment area in New Zealand?

Aside from council consent, which your Landscaping Consultant can help you with, weather and the existing landscape are the two biggest factors. Consider your local climate. If there’s excessive rain or even sunshine, you may want to think about creating a partially covered outdoor space that gives you the option to escape the elements. 

Also, take the time to survey your property. Are there any obvious challenges such as steep inclines or an abundance of overgrown bush? If so, your Landscaping Consultant may need to coordinate excavation specialists, or you may opt to go back to the drawing board and instead work with your landscape instead of against it. But these are all things that will be addressed early on in the planning process, so don’t worry.

Why do I need a landscape plan?

Contractors can often be heard saying “measure twice, cut once”. They know there’s no better way to waste time and money than jumping into a project without taking the time to plan properly. At Zones, this concept is deeply ingrained in our process, the majority of which is dedicated to planning. 

Landscaping is about instant gratification, yes. You expect to be able to enjoy your outdoor area as soon as your project is finished. But it’s also about longevity, and the only way to achieve that is through smart planning. Our Landscaping Consultants help homeowners plan their landscapes thoughtfully and intentionally. From choosing which materials will be the best for your purpose to carefully positioning plants in a way that will allow them to thrive for years to come. If you want a fantastic landscape design to enjoy in the present and future, get in touch with the Zones team.

How long does it take to build an outdoor entertainment area?

Timelines vary and there are a myriad of factors that can impact an estimated schedule. We’ve completed projects in anywhere from four weeks to four months and beyond. Part of our 5-step process includes creating a detailed timeline so our Landscaping Consultants can reach milestones in a timely manner which helps them stay on schedule. So, while each project is unique, each one is planned in advance so you’ll know what’s going on and have a projected date of completion for your outdoor entertainment area.

How do you design a landscape garden?

Your budget, personal style, and the layout of your property will dictate most of your landscape garden design, but there are seven principles to landscape design: unity, scale, balance, simplicity, variety, emphasis, and sequence. In practice, this concept could be applied as soil drainage and sun exposure will affect your plant selection, which affects your hardscaping choices, which affects the overall aesthetic, and so on. 

Confused? That’s OK! We’re here to help make the process easy. Our talented team has helped countless Kiwi homeowners transform their properties with bespoke, functional landscape gardens. Our free, no-obligation consultations are the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the process and begin to imagine what your outdoor area could be!
