How to design a landscape garden

Define Your Goals and Needs: Start by identifying your goals and needs for the garden. What do you want to achieve with the space? Consider factors such as relaxation, entertainment, gardening, or family activities.

Site Analysis: Evaluate the existing conditions of your garden. Take note of factors like soil quality, sunlight, existing vegetation, drainage, and any natural features such as trees or slopes. This analysis will inform your design decisions.

Set a Budget: Determine your budget for the landscape project. Establishing a budget early on will help you make informed choices about materials and features.

Conceptual Planning: Create a rough sketch or conceptual plan of your garden. This initial plan serves as a visual representation of your ideas and helps you explore layout options.

Style and Theme: Decide on the style or theme you want for your garden. Styles can range from formal and structured to informal and naturalistic. Consider how the garden will complement your home's architecture.

Key Elements: Identify the primary elements you want to incorporate, such as garden beds, pathways, seating areas, water features, and structures like pergolas or gazebos.

Project Management: Decide whether you will implement the design yourself, hire contractors, or work with a professional landscape designer. Ensure that the construction phase aligns with your design vision.

What can I get for my budget?

Zones professional gardeners are able to tailor their gardening services to your specific requirements and budget. Our professional gardeners are able to provide you with the details of the scope of the work and a fixed price quote, no matter whether your gardening projects are small, medium or large.

So how much does a garden revamp cost? It depends on a lot of different factors including the size of your project and the materials you choose. On a tight budget you can achieve a basic refresh of your outdoor space. Keeping existing structures and lawn levels, for example, will help keep the costs down. If you require extensive retaining or excavating, this can move you closer to a medium budget range. With some extra cash to spend you will be able to include high-end materials and luxury features.

Zones will be able to help you make the most of your garden by finding cost-effective solutions that give you the best results for your budget. Our professional gardeners have a structured approach that helps them streamline the process, from initial meeting and briefing through to the design stages and provision of a fixed price quote to finally undertaking the gardening work for you. There are also options for cleaning to help you keep your garden shipshape for years to come.

Do gardeners take away the rubbish and green waste?

As with most landscaping and gardening projects, implementing a new garden design or even just carrying out a general garden clean up can mean creating a large amount of garden waste. This should be taking into consideration when your gardeners discuss the scope of your project and the budget with you. Find out if the removal of green waste is included, and what rates apply for this.

Where hard landscaping and building work is being carried out, there may be heavy debris that needs to be transported off the site and disposed of responsibly. Soil removal and disposal of old building materials such as concrete or paving can be expensive, so it’s definitely a cost factor to be aware of and discuss up front with your gardener. It’s also important to find out the exact procedure and cost for waste removal when you hire a maintenance contractor for on-going garden clean ups. The team at Zones Tauranga will discuss what’s required in terms of rubbish and green waste during the planning phase of your project. They can take away all of the waste.
