In these uncertain times our homes have become an even more important ‘safe haven’ for our families to work, rest and play.
Paramount to this is to have suitable spaces to carry out these activities, especially in extended periods of lock down!
Likewise, the functionality and feel of our home environment becomes so important for our family’s wellbeing and lifestyle
As a landscape design and build company we essentially sell lifestyle and our mantra is to create these spaces for you personally.
Whether this is to create a suitable patio area in which to host family and friends, a new flat lawn so kids can play safely or just screening out unsightly neighbouring views from your property.
Whatever your wants and needs may be, we will listen, come up with practical and creative solutions and bring your dreams into reality!
To illustrate this, I would like to case study a recent project North Shore landscaping project we completed at the end of 2019
North Shore Landscaping Townhouse
One of my long standing clients recently purchased a new town house in Auckland’s North Shore. For a very active family of 5 with pet dog Rocky (aka the escape artist), this property presented a number of issues to my client.
The Property, landscaped in the 1990s was unplanned, tired, over grown and lacked suitable spaces for kids to play. With two avid football players who hankered to practice goal shots at home, the current layout of the section just didn’t cut the mustard.
For the Adults, used to alfresco living, there was nowhere suitable to BBQ, entertain, let alone put a spa pool. A small rectangular concrete paved space could barely even accommodate outdoor furniture. A separate patio area lacked linkage to the house and provided no screening from the road whatsoever
And not to mention Rocky ‘the escape artist’, who at every opportunity would use the current fencing to leap over the boundary and take off, leaving my client casing him for hours in the nearby streets of Auckland’s North Shore
So what did we do to solve these issues
- Open up lawn area
- Improve boundary screening
- Add two new Patio area to accommodate seating, outdoor fire and spa pool
- New Lawn for Kids to play on
- Improve overall aesthetics of property
- Secure Rocky the Dog (aka escape Artist)
