What outdoor entertainment area renovation ideas are currently popular in Wellington?

Wellington is known for its eateries and capital city dwellers are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing where to dine out. But many homeowners enjoy entertaining in the comfort of their own home too, which is why outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular.

From outdoor pizza ovens to covered BBQ areas, fire pits to outdoor bars, there’s plenty of kitchen features that can be transported to an outdoor entertainment area. 

Other homeowners have called upon Zones Landscaping to help them with the installation and landscape design of a poolscape. Despite being in a coastal location, many a Wellingtonian likes to have the convenience of a pool in their backyard, when section contours allow of course!

At Zones, our local Landscaping Consultants know Wellington and are happy to discuss your outdoor entertainment area renovation ideas with you. Just get in touch and book your free consultation.

Choosing the right outdoor entertainment features

If what you include in your landscape design is right for your lifestyle, then those are the outdoor entertainment features that will be most beneficial for you. If you enjoy inviting friends and family over then a comprehensive outdoor entertainment area with plenty of bench seating, outdoor furniture, outside cooking facilities, and weather protection, such as a pergola or louvre roof, will be key features to include in your landscape design.

If you’re looking for a design that resembles more of a sustainable backyard, then raised planter beds, well-designed pathways, and perhaps a composting area will need to be included in the design, preferably away from any outdoor seating!

By discussing your plans with your local Wellington landscape designers prior to embarking on your outdoor renovation, you’ll be able to determine which outdoor entertainment features are most suited to your vision and your property.

Do I need council consent for my outdoor area in Wellington? 

If you’re installing a pool on your property then you may need council consent, but for most landscape design and smaller structures, such as a free standing pergola, you’re unlikely to need council input.

At Zones Wellington, our local consultants and designers know which landscape features require council consent so will be able to advise you on whether or not documentation will need to be prepared as part of your project. If it does, they’ll take care of it for you!
