Landscape design

Effective landscape design can transform an ordinary space into a personalised oasis, perfect for your New Zealand home. It can involve both your front yard, for maximised curb appeal, and your backyard to give yourself a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. 

However, creating a beautiful outdoor space on your NZ property is a bit trickier than simply picking out plants that you like. It requires meticulous planning, keen attention to detail and innovative design elements that truly enhance your space. 

Here at AreaTech, we’re proud to offer you our comprehensive landscaping services. Our landscape package makes things easier for you, as we’ll take care of all required consents and council applications so you don’t have to stress about them. 

But before we discuss your landscaping design project, you should first get to know some of the top considerations and essential elements of effective landscaping in New Zealand.

Key Considerations For Landscaping Projects

First, let’s cover a few key considerations for your landscaping project, as these can help you highlight your goals and your methods before you explore specific landscaping features:

  • Project Management. Your endeavour might not be very successful if you don’t have great project management skills. Luckily, even if you don’t have any prior landscaping experience, our team at AreaTech would be glad to help. We know that landscaping projects can be overwhelming, and we’ll use our expertise to aid you with your project.
  • Function. Consider the function you want for your space. Do you want your front yard to focus on aesthetics so you can improve your home’s appeal and impress your neighbours? Do you want your backyard to be a comfortable and welcoming space so that it’s the perfect setting for gatherings? Imagine your ideal landscape design, and think about what you’d want to do in your outdoor areas. Remember that if you have small children or pets, you should make choices that will keep the spaces safe for them.
  • Budget. While you look at your options, be sure to keep your budget in mind. Creating a realistic budget and allotting different amounts to the different parts of your landscaping project will help you avoid overspending. However, remember that while investing in high-quality solutions may cost more, they’re more likely to last longer and serve their purpose better.

Making A Lasting First Impression With Your Front Yard’s Landscape Design

As we all know, first impressions are imperative. A well-landscaped front yard sets the tone for the rest of your property, showing guests that you keep an expertly maintained home that’s as welcoming as it is marvellous. Personalised decor can also make your front yard feel unique to you. Here are a handful of things you could consider for your front yard:

  • Reticulation Systems. It’s absolutely vital that you ensure your plants receive adequate water so that they stay beautiful, strong and healthy. A well-designed reticulation system will provide your plants with efficient water, promoting healthy plant growth while reducing water waste.
  • Driveway And Paths. Your driveway and paths should be practical, but they should also be visually pleasing. Sleek designs that look wonderful and are easy to use are great for modern NZ homes.
  • Garden Beds. Carefully designed garden beds filled with plants can add colour, texture and structure to your front yard. When choosing plants, understand their maintenance requirements before you make your final decisions.

Creating A Personal Sanctuary With Your Backyard’s Landscape Design

While your front yard can be admired by others in your neighbourhood, your backyard should be somewhere just for you, your family and your loved ones. It’s a place to relax, enjoy nature and entertain family and friends. What can you think about for your backyard? Many of the items listed for your front yard can also be considered for your backyard, but you can also consider:

  • Patios And Paths. Hardscaping features like patios and paths can improve your space’s functionality, as well as make it more visually interesting. A well-placed patio offers the perfect spot for outdoor dining and lounging, and paths provide structure and give a clear pathway for traversing your backyard without harming your turf or plants.
  • Fencing And Gates. Privacy and security are necessary for your backyard, as they can make your area feel more like a personal space where you can truly destress and feel safe. Secure, well-designed fences and gates add to your security and the aesthetics of your landscape design.
  • Artificial Turf. Artificial turf is a wonderful choice for those seeking a low-maintenance turf option. At AreaTech, we have high-quality artificial turf that perfectly replicates the feel and look of natural grass. Because it’s artificial, this turf requires absolutely no mowing or fertilising, and it stays lush and green all year long.
