Greenscapes is Canterbury’s leading company offering home owners and developers in Christchurch and beyond a one-stop-shop for landscape design, plant supply & placement, landscape planting, tree transplanting, lawn installation and grounds maintenance.
We can do as much or as little of the project as you require including providing:
We visit your place to see what will grow well there. We’ll also find out a bit about what kind of outdoor environment you prefer. Do you want an easy care garden? Is shelter or privacy important? Which plants do you particularly like or dislike?
Next we can develop a concept plan to scale including a basic layout of the various elements including lawn, gardens, paving etc. This gives you an idea of what could be done with the space and estimate of the costs involved
Once the concept plan is agreed we create a provisional planting plan. This shows which plants will go where and how many will be needed. In the case of an existing garden, it will also specify which plants are to be removed. You may like to visit a garden centre to see how you like what we propose. After we have received your feedback we finalise the planting plan. You can take over from this point or get us to implement the plan for you.
We can quote the cost of supplying the number, type and size of plants specified in an existing planting plan or one we have created with you. We raise our own plants in our nursery at Burnham. If necessary we also source them from Canterbury or further a field, using specialist plant transporters to ensure plants arrive safely. We prefer to source plants from Canterbury because they are used to local conditions.
Our plants are considerably less than garden centres with free delivery within Christchurch city (minimum $200 order). We can also supply to outlying areas by arrangement.
We can also contract grow plants for developers and other landscape companies.
We place the plants in exactly the right spot as per a planting plan or can be rearranged as necessary (in consultation with the client). We also provide advice on how to plant and care for the plants to ensure they flourish.
To ensure plants survive and thrive, it is crucial they are planted at the correct depth into the right ground conditions. We are able to do this for you following your landscape plan or one we create for you. We also advise how to look after the plants once they are in the ground and provide a three month guarantee.
Need a precious plant or tree relocated? We offer a specialised tree planting service ranging from small garden plants to 10m palm trees!
We are able to provide seeded lawn, hydro lawn (a mixture of seed, fertiliser & wood pulp) or Ready Lawn for an instant effect. We do the first cut to show you the right height and provide advice on how to care for it in future.
Whether you have a tiny townhouse, lifestyle property or commercial premises, we can maintain your lawn and garden. Services include spraying, pruning, weeding and general garden grooming.
If your garden requires ‘hard’ landscape elements such as paving and fencing, we are able to recommend other companies to undertake these projects. We can also project manage them, co-ordinating the various trades to bring your landscaping together on time and within budget.
