Christchurch Landscapers You Can't Do Without

Christchurch landscapers have done amazing work recreating our region’s gardens and public spaces since the devastating earthquakes.  Your backyard deserves the same level of care and attention too. Dreaming of a seamless indoor outdoor flow for entertaining friends? Want a fence built or trees planted to redefine your boundary again? Need retaining walls or an entire garden makeover? Our amazing landscapers can do all that and more.

Hiring the best Christchurch landscapers

Our landscapers are happy to travel from Lyttleton to Fendalton and everywhere in between. In fact you are more than likely to even have one living in your suburb. We have plenty of experienced and skilled landscapers available for hire within Christchurch just waiting for your job. List your garden landscaping job right now and let our tradies chase you!

Once you have started receiving interest and quotes for you job, it’s time to narrow down the selection to just one. Checking the testimonials here on our website left by other homeowners is a good place to start. Ask about what sort of similar jobs have they done before? Are you able to chat with their previous clients? Can you visit their previous work sites to check the quality of their finished work? Asking questions about their experience and qualifications is not being nosy, it’s smart.

Services provided by Christchurch landscapers

Canterbury landscapers have a large repertoire of services they can provide. Whether you need earthquake repair work for garden structures or a landscaping plan made, they do it all. There are three main landscaping categories their work falls under; landscape design, landscape construction and soft landscaping.

Landscape design is a specialised skill, most often requiring a tertiary qualification. With a scale plan made of your future garden, they let you see the start of your dream garden. A designer will have many discussions with you. They will use your ideas, wants and plant types, and then incorporate any existing features into their final design.

The actual building and digging happen during the landscape construction stage. Building a new deck and paving a patio or path also happens now. If you are wanting a retaining wall, your fence rebuilt or a water feature created, it’s all done here. Building raised vegetable gardens or laying weed mat and bark on garden beds are also common landscaping construction tasks.

Finally the soft landscaping is done. New bedding plants, hedges and shrubs are planted. Garden ornaments are positioned and Readylawn is laid. Your garden vision comes to fruition and it’s time to celebrate with some bubbles or a BBQ!

After everything we have been through over the past few years, Christchurch locals deserve to sit back and relax. Enjoying your newly landscaped property is just the ticket you need to do that. Today is the day to start giving your garden a magical makeover.  List your landscaping job right now at Builderscrack and let us do all the hard work for you.

Navigating Wet Lawns - One Family's Solution

Hiring Jared, from Firth Landscapes, for a few days work was the ideal solution to put an end to one family's soggy lawn crossings this winter...... The Job Liz needed a garden path extended. One already existed, but it stopped short of the lawn, which meant that every time anyone in her family went to the washing line, or woodshed, they had a stretch of often wet and muddy lawn to cross. Liz had the pavers to match her existing path, she had made the plan and measured up exactly where the path would go, all she needed was to find a willing tradie. The Solution It was during this search that she came across builderscrack.co.nz. She immediately liked the way only tradies interested in doing the job were presented to the homeowner. For Liz, who works full time, it meant she could cut out the time-consuming step of “cold-calling” tradies to see if they were even interested in her job. She decided to give this new way of finding a tradie ago, she posted her job, added
