Taupo Franchise Opportunity

Landscaping is taking off in the booming property sector

Build your dream business in a highly profitable and growing market. You don’t have to be a landscaper to own a Zones franchise.

Zones started in New Zealand and recently took home the Best Emerging Franchise System Award at the Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards 2016-2017.

According to the judges, ‘While [Zones is] only a young franchise system, a main strength of this franchise is its sister franchise and parent organisation from which it will gain the majority of its systems. This will give it a definite head start.’

Zones Landscaping Specialists


Zones launched in New Zealand in 2014. This follows the successful launch and development of Refresh Renovations, the leading renovation business in Australasia.

The Directors undertook a large research project to understand consumer behaviour and market attributes before launching Zones with the intent to offer a service that better meets the needs of homeowners. The basis for this new offer is a nationally recognised, branded company that offers design and build landscaping services to enhance the lifestyle of our customers.

Zones recognised the fragmented landscaping market and as a result built a specialised design-and-build landscaping service. The service provides a customer the full-service, from concept plans to completion. Zones project manage the work, which makes the whole process as hassle free for the customer as possible.

Since launching, Zones Landscaping Specialists has established successful franchises throughout New Zealand. With demand growing steadily, we need to appoint more franchisees in order to meet our customer demand.
