Minimalist Style for Low-Maintenance Landscape in Hobsonville, Auckland

Minimalist Style for Low-Maintenance Landscape in Hobsonville, Auckland

This Hobsonville townhouse was part of a new build development, but the ‘house and land’ package didn’t include any landscaping. The homeowners wanted to create something low-maintenance and laid-back to reflect their personal style, so they reached out to Zones Landscaping for professional guidance. 


Landscaping Consultants Louise Reeve and Logan Bridgens worked to bring the couple’s vision to life. Fresh readylawn, two complementary fence styles, and a neutral colour palette are a cohesive addition to the new home. The finished result is seamless.

The timeless essence of the subway tiled splashback takes on a modern twist with non-traditional black grout.

Transformed with a New Look Inside and Out

Transformed with a New Look Inside and Out

This Refresh Renovations project led by Renovation Consultant Paul Cree involved transforming both the interior and exterior of this Viewbank home. With roofs of varying height and pitch, the exterior appeared disjointed, a consequence of the original structure having been built in the 1960s with a second-storey extension coming along 20 years later. 


Re-pitching the roofs to a uniform degree gives the property cohesion from the outside and allowed for the kitchen’s ceiling to be raised and the layout to be altered. Additional floor space from the reconfiguration creates a large, open-plan kitchen and lounge area that’s perfect for entertaining, a favourite past time of the epicurean homeowners.
