On this page you will find information about rules, laws and regulations that can affect landscape projects. What do you need to consider?
Many laws affecting landscaping are Acts of Parliament. Examples include the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act and the Resource Management Act. Each council tends to have their own interpretation when enforcing these acts. There may also be specific by-laws relating directly to your city, town or even your street.
Use our Council Search to find specific information from your local authority. We have links to ALL local and regional council websites.
Our advice is to look for information about specific rules and regulations on council websites or talk to a local Landscape Architect or Designer familiar with compliance in your area.
