Does a landscape plan include a planting plan?

As your blueprint, a landscape plan sums up the overall design and vision for your garden makeover. It will help you work out design details and make important design decisions early on in the process, and hence help avoid making costly mistakes or changes further down the track. Structural issues such as retainer walls as well as issues around drainage or other site-specific requirements will be taken into consideration.

In addition to paved spaces, decks, pools or lawn areas, a landscape plan can also include a full planting plan. This will outline the type and location of individual plants. Plants are a key element of any successful garden design, and for a bespoke plan they should be chosen to create visual impact all year round. Other considerations play into the selection of plants, too, such as providing different colours and textures, how much care and pruning will be required and how long they will take to mature.

How much does a landscape project cost?

Bespoke landscape architecture can have completely different specifications from project to project and this of course means that the costs for different landscaping projects will vary. The main cost factors are the size of the site, the extent of work that is necessary and the choice of materials. Following the initial design meeting and brief, our Zones specialists will give you a budget range indication. When the final plan and scope are agreed, we will prepare a fixed price quote before any building work starts, so that you will know all the details of the project and what things will cost.

Will Zones take care of any required council consent?

Building consent and resource consent from Auckland Council may be required for your landscaping project, depending on the rules and regulations that apply to the zone of your property. Some retaining walls, decks and structures require engineering work and there are special rules around swimming pools and land cover. The North Shore Zones landscape architects are experts in obtaining the necessary permits and ensuring your project is fully compliant.

How long does it take to finish a landscape project?

Turning your landscape vision into reality requires skilled craftsmen and excellent project management. The Zones North Shore Landscape Architects follows an efficient process to avoid unnecessary delays. After the initial brief we will be able to give you an idea of how long your specific project might take, and once the scope of the project has been agreed we will be able to put a detailed timeline into place. It’s worthwhile earmarking a good amount of time on planning. We use state-of-the-art project management software that allows real-time reporting and will keep you in the loop at every stage of the project.
