1000 red tussocks planted in Queenstown
Step 1: remove 3000 m2 of weeds
Step 2: plant 1000 red tussock
...but isn't the view amazing!
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!
A garden perfect for children
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.
Modern, resort-like front and backyard makeover
Encompassing a complete outdoor design, driveway, lighting, landscaping and layout changes, this Zones makeover resulted in a sophisticated and quality outdoor area. The front and backyard of this property now have a streamlined, uncluttered tropical look, defined with edging plants. The deck installed extended the area around the swim spa and made access to the garage and the back of the house easier. Not only did the homeowners add value to their home, but they dramatically improved the indoor-outdoor flow of the existing house.
