When Should I Start with My Landscape Design?

Quite simply, as soon as possible! Whether you are starting your landscape design plan from scratch, or reimagining a current space, we can help to ensure that you get the most out of your new outdoor area.

If you are building a new home, the best time to start thinking about landscaping is right from the beginning. The sooner a landscape architect can get involved with the design process, the better, as it allows for the project to be completed more easily.

Getting a full, unique landscape design will ensure your outdoor space is well-considered, practical, on budget and of course, aesthetically pleasing. Who says you can't have a beautiful backyard in an urban area!

Why Do You Need a Landscape Design?

Anyone can create an outdoor environment, but it takes a true professional to get the best from the space that you have. A landscape architect will know what works and what doesn’t work for any given garden space in terms of aesthetics, practicality and plant choices. By working with your wants and needs, they’ll be able to develop landscape design ideas that work perfect for your space - simple, low maintenance, edible, contemporary, whatever you'd like!

Landscaping is a very specialised niche and not only requires knowledge of garden maintenance and building techniques, but also the ability to plan around the known growth rate and preferred conditions of a multitude of botanical species.

This combination of knowledge along with the experience needed to make everything work from a design perspective – as well as a budget perspective – is the reason you need a professional landscape architect to help you with your landscape design.

Getting a proper landscape design will also help in creating a low maintenance backyard for you in the long term. Our architects keep everything in mind and understand that most people don't have time to spend hours each week tending them. We help make your outdoor space simple and enjoyable.

How Much Will A Landscape Design Cost?

Our landscape design plans are competitively priced and generally start from $650 + GST for a full section, basic landscape design. However, it's best to give us a call and have a chat. Every project varies due to the size of the space, complexity of the design, whether it's a new build or existing home, and the individual requirements of the owner. We also offer separate planting plans with a full-plant specification table.

Every landscaping concept comes with an itemised quote for our in-house landscapers to transform your plan into reality.

Call us today for a talk with our landscape architects. Even if you are not located in Christchurch like us, we'd love to chat over the phone. We look forward to making your outdoor space an area you can enjoy & love for years to come.
