How we will approach your landscape design in East Auckland

Over the years, we have found that designing a landscape is new to many of our clients.  Where to start, getting the layout right the first time, not wasting money on the wrong plants.  It can seem a bit daunting, we get that.  This is why we have created our “Landscape for Living Pathway”  a design process broken down into 3 parts. We aim to guide you through a enjoyable design and construction process.

Our pre-design phase has been proven over the years to benefit our clients far more than rushing into a design. It creates space to clarify the brief, including the expected budget and planning requirements.  We will help you prioritise your design brief, so you can work towards your ideal garden in stages if necessary.

By the time we reach the design phase, we will have created a more complete picture of your requirements to create an inspired, unique landscape. Critical to our approach is our “Attention to Detail”. During the Detail Design phase, we cover the indepth design for the key components so the contractors knows exactly whats required; setting out, decking, hardscape structures, fencing, gates, pools, planting plans, lighting, irrigation, rain water collection, every possible aspect of your design to ensure a smooth pricing and implementation.

The construction phase is when we build your garden. Working with trusted landscape contractors, we aim to go above and beyond your expectations to make your ideal garden.
