Landscape Planner

A stylish landscape/garden does not have to be expensive, but to make the best use of the space available, you need to plan the layout carefully.

1. INSPIRATION! Select pavers that match internal floor coverings to ensure the transition from indoor-out is subtle and blends with your decoration style.

2. STYLE! Choose your style or landscape e.g: Formal with straight lines or informal with curving lines. Do you prefer an NZ native look? English formal look? Tropical look? – use your books and magazines for ideas.

3. ESSENTIAL FEATURES! Driveway, patio, paths, clothesline. When designing, consider things like: views, shade, access, sunshine, wind, slopes, drainage, security and privacy.

4. EXTRA FEATURES CONSIDER THINGS LIKE vegetable garden, fruit trees, irrigation, garden lighting, BBQ area, pool, garden shed, compost bins, children’s playground, pets, raised planters, walls, pergolas, outdoor fire, water features, etc.

5. SITE PLAN! Using a pencil on the grid provided, carefully draw a site plan of y our property showing all existing features that you want to keep e.g. house, garage, trees, etc. Use a scale of 1:100 e.g. each square on the grid = 1m².

6. IDENTIFY! IDENTIFY AND MARK THESE 6 AREAS ON YOUR PLAN: 1. Entrance way 2. Driveway 3. Parking 4. Patio 5. Service area (clothesline/bins) 6. Lawn areas.

7. DESIGN! This may take a while and you won’t get it the right first time – so please be patient! Mak e sure you have an eraser handy! Design in the essential features first e.g: 1. Driveway 2. Patio and Paths 3. Walls and fences 4. Clothesline area – and then design in your gardens, trees and lawn areas. Lastly, add in any extra features you want.

8. ACTION LIST! From your plan – create an installation action list in order of priority. In order to successfully complete your project – you must install all hardscape (pavers etc) products first and softscape (gardens etc) last. This is because the hardscape products provide the “skeleton” of your landscape and the softscape provides the “flesh”.

9. INSTALL! This is the really exciting part! Order your PREMIER products from your local DIY store or call us on 0800 22 22 98 to organize the delivery for you. You can DIY or choose a Premier approved installer to do the work for you.

10. ENJOY! Pop the champagne, relax and enjoy your beautiful landscape.
