Garry and Chris
We didn't think in today's world, contractors with these work ethics still existed. They gave us such great advice. They really do care about the job even when they have finished and moved on. When on-site they were hard-working, professional and just great to have around.
Karl and his team did an excellent job in my garden. It was great to get a professional recommendation on the plants. Very responsive and efficient. I'll definitely use their services again.
I have known Karl, Gareth and the team for a few years now.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’m building a new house when’s the best time to see a landscaper?
The earlier in the build process, the better. It means you can begin planning around other trades as well as start to put together a budget. Often when building in subdivisions, developers also require a landscape plan to be submitted for approval prior to a build commencing.
How much will a landscape plan or planting plan cost?
Plan costs vary hugely depending on what the client wants, the size of the section and many other factors. We are able to give you a definitive cost once we've had an initial conversation with you, and seen your building plans if you're building a new home. For a better idea about the costs involved and the process, read our blog on how much a landscape design costs.
Can I have a low maintenance garden?
Yes. No gardens are zero maintenance, however we have lots of ways to reduce the amount of work involved in keeping them looking nice.
When is the best time of year to carry out landscaping?
Landscaping can be carried out at any time during the year. In summer it is important to have a good water supply, especially when growing a new lawn. In winter things can take longer, depending on the weather.
Hydroseeding or roll-out lawn?
There are pros and cons to each. We can talk to you about which is suitable for your place and provide an expert opinion. We're one of the leading hydroseeders in Christchurch, providing this service for many other landscapers.
Do you build other designers work?
Yes, we are happy to quote and build landscape plans from other landscape design companies.
I know what I want, do I need a landscaping plan?
A landscape plan is a good way to plan your whole landscape project as a whole and give the final result consistency. A landscape architect can also ensure your space is practical and the right plants are put in the right place. If you already have a clear idea of what you want, we offer free quotes.
Can I DIY some or all of my project?
Yes. Our quotes are itemised so if you wish to undertake elements yourself, you are welcome to, however we recommend thinking about access and timing carefully when splitting up a landscaping project into stages.
