Our deck installation process

For deck installation in Zones Wellington, we adhere to a well-structured 5-step process to ensure the successful transformation of your outdoor space:

Step One: Initial Meeting
Our process begins with an initial meeting where we engage in open communication with you, our valued client. During this meeting, we discuss your preferences, needs, and aspirations for your deck project. It's an opportunity for us to understand your vision and assess the practical aspects of your outdoor space.

Here, our skilled team of designers will craft a concept that encapsulates your ideas and aligns with the architectural and environmental nuances of Zones Wellington. We also provide you with a comprehensive estimation of the project, ensuring transparency regarding the budget and scope.

Step Three: Detailed Design, Planning, and Costing
Once the concept is refined and approved, we proceed to the detailed design and planning stage. This involves creating a comprehensive blueprint for your deck installation. Our team meticulously plans every aspect of the project, ensuring that all design elements are harmoniously integrated. We provide a detailed cost breakdown to keep you informed about all financial aspects of the project.

How much does it cost to build a new deck in NZ?

Decks can range from $15,000 to $40,000*+ depending on the materials you use, the complexity of your design, site access, levelling etc. See our deck projects to get an idea on what other homeowners achieved for a similar budget.

Softwoods and composite decks are generally on the more affordable side of decking materials, followed by hardwood decking. Alternatively, you might be interested in a raised patio - finished with polished concrete, pebbles or tiles.

Whatever you choose, your Zones Landscaping Specialist can work with you to make it suit your budget. For a cost estimate accurate to your specifications, please get in touch.

Choosing the right deck for you

While timber decking is the classic go-to, composite decking has really grown in popularity in the past few years. It’s generally made from recycled materials such as PVC and wood fibres.

Composite is usually quick and easy to install and is valued for its durability and for being low-maintenance.

Softwood and hardwood decks continue to be popular choices but they require slightly more maintenance than composite designs.

Kwila decking is a common hardwood timber decking that is common in New Zealand because it lasts between 25 and 50 years if property maintained. Another option is bamboo - which is a good choice for environmentally-conscious homeowners due to its renewable nature - when treated correctly.

Types of decks

Aside from decking material, there are several types of decks to consider before making your choice. These types may vary based on the size of your property, your budget, and the style you want to achieve.

Attached decks are great for extending your living space outdoors. These decks are often viewed as house extensions.

Swimming pool decks are made specifically to surround your swimming pool. You'll want to make sure this material is well treated to get wet.

Detached island decks are great for creating a living room-type space in your backyard with plenty of seating and space for entertaining.

Your Landscaping Consultant will work with you to find the right type of deck and decking material that will best suit your home.

How long should a deck last?

Hardwood and composite decks have the longest lifespan of roughly 50 years or more. Softwoods and modified woods see a lifespan of roughly 25 years. Bear in mind, the exposure to elements and how often you maintain your deck will have an impact on its lifespan.

Decking regulations

According to the Wellington City Council, you need building consent to build or replace a deck that's more than 1.5m above ground at any point. Depending on your specific property, there might be more permits required. Your local Landscaping Consultant will be able to provide you with all of the consent required for your specific project.
