Landscape Design

Landscaping a coastal garden on a hillside in Mangawhai

Having a design plan to landscape a garden or outdoor space is as much a requirement as planning the house itself. Your landscape plan should detail levels, location, orientation, materials, plants and trees. Perhaps, if required, a specification for implementation- plant names and spacing are critical.

In late 2022 Plantpro Ltd launched an exciting new division of the business- Plantpro Design.

For more than 20 years Jerome has been the creative genius behind the landscaping design work and service Plantpro has provided to clients in Whangarei and beyond.

We have now expanded to bring Craig Turvey onboard, a professional with more than 30 years experience in the architecture and design industry. Originally from Whangarei, Craig has extensive experience designing innovative spatial solutions for interpretive visitor experiences including public gardens and outdoor spaces, museum exhibitions and tourism-focused visitor centers. He has worked all over New Zealand in his varied career, with notable projects being the Cape Reinga Te Rerenga Wairua visitor experience, Arataki Visitor Centre in Waitakere and the Wellington Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre.

Craig has now decided to turn his hand to landscape design with Plantpro and has hit the ground running with several design and build projects in the greater Whangarei area. He is passionate about meeting design challenges, creating innovative design solutions and positive client relationship building, while staying true to the design intent of the project and ensuring the best possible outcome for the client.



Landscape Design Process

Wondering what you can expect from the landscape design process if you employ the services of Plantpro Design?

Our designers typically work in a staged process.

Design Brief

The first step in the landscape design process is for our designers work alongside you to clarify scope of work. We call this the job brief.  Our designers achieve this through an onsite meeting, having a conversation with you while viewing the space and assessing environmental factors which may impact the construction process.

Concept Design Proposal

From here they develop a Concept Design Proposal.
This includes hard and soft landscaping specifications alongside a basic to scale layout plan. At this stage you will receive suggestions for materials  and indicative plant specifications. What we think will look good and work well in the space.

Developed Design

Once you have approved the landscape design concept then we move into the developed design phase. Here you will be provided with further plant specifications, materials detail garden infrastructure and a build quote or estimate along with a programme of works to complete the job.

Detailed Design

When a build quote is accepted we enter the final stage of the landsacpe design process. Here our designers put together a detailed design which provides our landscapers with all the information they need to construct and install your landscaping.
