Planting NZ Gardens. Landscape Design Ideas New Zealand. NZLANDSCAPES landscape designers in Auckland.

When planting NZ gardens, NZLANDSCAPES landscape designers in Auckland, New Zealand, consider all the garden requirements each New Zealand plant variety will require. Soil types vary around the world and with a quick soil analysis we can gather the information required to design planting plans for your gardens accordingly.

A soil analysis would include:

Soil type
Soil structure
Soil moisture
Soil pH.(Acid or Alkaline soil levels).

Soil analysis is critical in the performance of particular plant types, for example a Camellia or Rhododendron will not tolerate an alkaline soil, much preferring an acid soil.

Some New Zealand Phormium or Cordyline varieties will not tolerate a soil with a constant high water content, therefore sometimes struggling to grow in an over-watered container.

Free draining soils are not always the best for plant types that prefer wet or bog type soils. NZ Raupo, Typha orientalis is a variety that will prefer water margin planting.

If you are considering planting a New Zealand garden and would like some advice on what plant types are best suited to your soil type, or you would like to have a NZLANDSCAPES landscape designer guide you through a NZ planting scheme best suited to your individual garden requirements you can EMAIL NZLANDSCAPES for further assistance.

Landscape designer nz photos. Mantis Eating European Wasp, Natural Pest Control at its best.

Before you stamp on that bug, remember they are part of the global life cycle and give balance to our environment. The praying mantis, Miomantis caffran, is shown in this photo eating the European wasp, one of New Zealand's most disliked garden pests.
We can clearly see the benefits of some of the unusual looking bugs / insects in our gardens, and yes she devoured the whole wasp!
Both species shown are introduced pests into NZ, and were able to survive very well in the New Zealand climate. Encouraging more Mantis into your garden will surely control the wasp numbers along with other plant growth inhibiting pests in your landscaped gardens.

New Zealand Native Plants. Coastal Plants. Pseudopanax lessonii.

Coastal plants for New Zealand Gardens.
Pseudopanax lessonii or 'Coastal five finger' has a waxy protective coating on the leaf that helps shield the plant from harsh salt air and coastal conditions. Pseudopanax lessonii is often used as a 'nursery' plant in the landscape garden, this means using the plant as a fast growing shelter species to provide protection for slower growing, less hardy plants.
Plant Pseudopanax lessonii in a growing position where it will get sun most of the day, provide enough space to grow to a mature height of several meters. Prune and remove lower branches on the maturing plant, this will encourage an eventual evergreen overhead canopy that will provide solid summer shade.
Pseudopanax lessonii can be managed at a hedging height, some plants will hollow out in the center after 5 years or so and will require replacing. Plants can also be susceptible to sooty blotch and may be treated with copper oxychloride. Planting to allow constant air flow around the entire shrub will help reduce attack from disease. Place a 12 month slow release fertiliser capsule or 2 at the base of the planting hole. Young plants will feed heavily for the first 2 years.

Indoor Planting Tips for Winter. NZ landscaping Ideas, NZLANDSCAPES.COM.

Indoor Plants and sub-tropical plants can be fussy and may require individual soil and climatic conditions to prevail over the colder winter season. Indoor plants will generally require less watering over the colder winter period and prefer warm air temperatures to keep soil warm and plants growing with excellent health.

Test your plants soil with the back of your hand, if it feels damp on the surface then watering is not usually necessary. Usually watering indoor plants once every 2 weeks is fine, some fleshy leaf plant varieties will always use more water so this is a general rule. Plants will generally use less nutrient over the winter period.

Move cold sensitive plants, if possible, into rooms within your home that are well lit and warm. Take care with placement of indoor heaters and fire places. Try not to burn your plants or lead the plants soil to become dried out in a dry climatic situation.

To discuss your indoor planting requirements contact NZLANDSCAPES here.

Perennial Planting New Zealand.

Most gardens in New Zealand have perennials hiding somewhere within the shadows or recesses of the landscape. Protecting and caring for perennials over the cold winter periods can be very successful with some simple easy to follow gardening advice below:

- Bring indoors any tender culinary herbs you have within your garden that you may want to keep from frost burn, place the containers somewhere with good light, provide free drainage and water in-frequently over the winter season.

- Cover any plants within your garden that are tender to frost with frost cloth, Citrus when young in particular. Some lower growing perennials such as begonia will survive a hard frost using straw as a frost cover. Cover with a layer 100 mm thick, if possible remove the straw during the sunlight hours.

- A gentle hose or sprinkler cover of all plants in a heavy frost can break any ice, WATER BEFORE SUNRISE!!! This may help avoid plants from 'melting'.

- Shade cloth or weed mat can substitute as a shelter belt for young plants. Be aware young deciduous trees, when leafless, may still require protection from harsh cold. Stake the young tree in severe wind conditions.

- Some bulbs prefer to be left in the ground over winter where others prefer to be lifted. Be sure you know what bulbs you are planting in your region for their growing requirements.

Anzac Day Events in Auckland.

In Flanders’ fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place, and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead, short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow.
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders’ fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe,
To you from failing hands we throw
The Torch: be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders’ fields.

Gardening News New Zealand - Plant spray to trigger flowering times.

Landscaping in New Zealand and potentially worldwide may never be the same again! New Zealand gardens and landscapes may be greatly enhanced by promoting timely plant flowering.

Palmerston North AgResearch team have been working on a project involving a plant spray that triggers plants into flowering like a switch. The plant spray starts or kick starts the plants normal flowering process but does not speed up the usual flowering periods of plants.
The spray being developed will also be used to slow down or stop plants flowering at all. The benefits could be beneficial to both the cut flower market, fruit / vege industry, landscape design, landscapers and gardeners planting options.

Just how Green are New Zealand landscapes?

Just how green are the New Zealand landscapes? This is a question often asked by people yet to visit Aotearoa, 'Land of the long white cloud'. It is sometimes a little overwhelming for visitors arriving in the country via Auckland, with the vast amounts of green shades within our landscape, the colour play on the waters with reflections of blue-white silk skies.
Often quoted as being the 'Silver City', Auckland city also has some very green sights to be seen.
The photo taken yesterday, Autumn Vista Views, are framed with native nz and exotic introduced species. The image is a part of a growing set that have been captured through the changing seasons from a private residence in the suburbs of West Auckland, North Island, New Zealand.
The residence is situated on a busy through road in a built up suburban area of Auckland. From the photos you can see there are no other houses to be seen, even amongst the busy hussle of the steadily growing city. Proving the point, Yes, even in central cities, New Zealand really is green.
For people living in New Zealand privacy and thoughtful landscape design structure are the basis for ideal landscapes. With well placed plantings and professional landscape approach any suburban garden can become a living oasis.

Deciduous Autumn Trees. Liquid amber. Landscaping ideas Auckland landscape designers. NZLANDSCAPES.

The ever changing New Zealand landscape comes to life during the autumn months to reveal a landscape rich with vibrant colour. New Zealand is the perfect growing climate for highly attractive exotic plant species and introduced plant species have become a dominant feature amongst the New Zealand landscape.

Deciduous fruit, some perennials, ornamental, shelter and erosion controlling trees were introduced into the country with the early European settlers. Tree varieties introduced into home gardens were more towards the fruiting variety with the main emphasis on edible varieties.

Shrubs and shelter trees were introduced to protect animal stocks from the sometimes harsh New Zealand environment and vast amounts of European trees were introduced for public parks, street plantings and large specimen gardens.

The exotic species have become so much a part of the New Zealand landscapes that the foreign visitor may indeed feel very much at home. Many New Zealand home gardeners and landscapers creating new gardens are working back toward introducing New Zealand native plant species back into our living environment.

NZLANDSCAPES landscape designers in Auckland New Zealand focus on encouraging the return of native New Zealand plant species into our working and living environments.
