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?

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.
