Industry Info

On this page you’ll find information about the landscape industry in New Zealand. It contains links to specific information about key areas.

The Landscape Industry covers all aspects of garden and outdoor design plus construction, maintenance, products and accessories.

In New Zealand people who design supply and install landscape services in New Zealand and products are known by a variety of titles.

Examples are:

We highly recommend consulting a Landscape Architect or Designer. They have the expertise to save money, time and get the best result for your project.

Many have formal tertiary qualifications and may belong to a professional body such as Landscape New Zealand (Landscape Industries Association of New Zealand) or NZILA (New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects).

There are also many self-taught, highly respected, experienced landscape designers, contractors and maintenance gardeners who don’t belong to either organisation.

    Hi Jan,

    Do you have anything in writing with this “landscaper”?

    If you paid them it makes the situation a little difficult. Generally it is acceptable to make a deposit, progress payments and the remainder when the job is completed.

    Quotes & Estimates information:

    If the “landscaper” has integrity and is a professional they will discuss completing the project and any extra’s required to complete the job.

    For future projects I recommend reading this information also.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Good luck

    Tim D
