Skilled Landscape Construction Experts

Landscape Construction thats second to none..

At Lush, every deck/patio, pergola, fence/gate, retaining wall – in short, anything that requires what we call hardscaping – we keep the following things in mind.
  • Aesthetics: Enhancing Natural Beauty


    At Lush Environments, we approach every deck, patio, pergola, fence, gate, or retaining wall—anything encompassing what we term as hardscaping—through a lens of aesthetic enhancement.


    Our commitment is to create structures that complement and accentuate the natural beauty of New Zealand’s landscapes. While we are craftsmen by trade, our approach is that of artists at heart.


  • Practicality: Tailored to Your Needs


    Our philosophy is simple: if it won’t be used, we won’t build it. At Lush, we actively listen to your needs and provide insightful suggestions based on years of experience. Our goal is to ensure that every hardscaping element we create is not only visually appealing but also practical and well-suited to enhance your outdoor living experience.


  • Durability: Honest Assessments for Longevity


    Understanding the delicate nature of many aesthetically pleasing features, we are transparent about the durability of materials. We provide honest assessments on how long materials will last, whether you choose to handle the maintenance yourself or opt for our landscape maintenance services. Our commitment is to guide you on the regular steps needed to keep your garden looking pristine over time.

Prepare yourself. We ask lots of questions.


At Lush, we like to do things right the first time, every time and in order to do that, we will need to know what you will be using these hardscape features for so that we can guide you toward the perfect solution. We like to think of ourselves as a unique blend of artisans and problem-solvers.

Seamless Planning and Budgeting

Once your landscape design concept is established, whether crafted by us or another designer, we seamlessly transition into discussions about timeframes and budgets. With a spectrum of material options to fit any budget, we guide you through the selection process, ensuring well-informed decisions for your deck, pergola, fence, or retaining wall.


Benefits of Hardscaping and Landscape Construction

For homeowners contemplating hardscaping or landscape construction in North Shore, Hibiscus Coast, or throughout Auckland, consider the following advantages:

  • 1. Property Value Boost:


    According to experts and backed by articles like this one from Stuff, a modest investment in a deck (ranging from $6,000 to $10,000) can significantly elevate your home’s value, potentially adding up to $80,000. An outside deck can expand your home’s usable space and increase its value by up to 30 per cent. Just keep in mind that if it is going to be over 1.5m high, you’ll need to get building consent before you start. It’s not just about adding a deck; it’s an investment that pays off, both financially and in lifestyle enhancement.

  • 2. Extended Outdoor Living:


    Pergolas and decks aren’t just structures; they’re gateways to extended outdoor living. Providing shelter, they allow you to relish fresh air even during relentless winter rains. These spaces create versatile dry areas for a range of activities, from leisurely moments to practical tasks like hanging out the laundry.

  • 3. Neighbourly Relations and Enhanced Security:


    Fences, beyond their role as property boundaries, contribute significantly to positive relations with neighbours. Acting as a deterrent for stray animals, fences play a pivotal role in preserving gardens and enhancing overall property security. They’re not just structures; they’re community builders.

  • 4. Functional and Aesthetic Retaining Walls:


    Retaining walls are the unsung heroes of landscaping. They serve a dual purpose of preventing soil erosion and water damage while offering privacy around your pool or creating a serene garden sanctuary. These walls contribute both functionally and aesthetically, defining your property boundary with style and purpose. They’re not just walls; they’re the backbone of a harmonious landscape.
