Landscaping and maintaining your gardens are not only important for aesthetics but they also have functional benefits as well.
Increases home value
First impressions count and some surveys have even suggested that great “curb appeal” for a property can command a 10% to 15% premium in a hot property market. The average payback (after adding up the costs of plants, maintenance, and makeover) is estimated at around 3 times the money invested.
Drainage and run-off
Landscaping also allows you to control storm runoff and drainage. When it rains, water should flow away from your home – if it collects around the base of your home, it can cause significant property damage, creating an ideal environment for rot and mould.
Professional landscaping can protect against these problems by ensuring your lawn has proper run-off and drainage.
Promotes and improves your outdoor lifestyle
A well-designed landscape promotes outdoor living by creating an attractive, functional environment. You and your family can enjoy al fresco meals together or entertain your friends with beautiful and inviting landscaping. Let us help you create a stunning landscape to bring calm and relaxation to your outdoor living.
A lesser-known benefit of landscaping is its ability to reduce a home’s overall energy usage. Strategically placed trees and shrubs create shade, which in turn reduces cooling costs during the warmer months. They can also help cool the inside by up to 10 degrees. We can help advise on which trees to plant and which to avoid as well as dig the holes for larger, more established trees saving you hours of back breaking labour.
Easier to sell your home
A beautiful landscape will also make it easier when it comes time to sell your home. It’s difficult to get prospective buyers to even enter your home if the front yard is a mess.
A well maintained garden will increase your property’s value and provide a beautiful environment for you to enjoy all year round.

We were recommended to Phil by a friend and were so glad we were.
Phil was not only friendly and professional, he was quick to see exactly what was needed and offer recommendations. He knew our time lines were squeezed but somehow still managed to fit us in amongst his busy schedule. The job done to tidy and enhance our garden was perfect and the team working along side him were also diligent and talented.
We feel Phil went over and above and really appreciate his efforts. We very highly recommend Jessep Contracting… an absolute standout.
Phil and his crew were friendly, polite and very efficient and it was an absolute pleasure to have them working on our garden.
They removed several Queen palm, did some pruning and took care not to damage any of the other plants in the garden. When they left, they did a great job of tidying up so all we had to do was sit and admire their handiwork! We would thoroughly recommend them.
Excellent reliable service, very prompt in coming around to quote, competitively priced and very professional.
Great job done of removing 5 yukka stumps and a massive unruly bougainvillea that has broken a trellis fence. Team tidied up beautifully. Definitely will be using the services of Phil & his team again. Highly recommend.
When I first met Phil I was immediately impressed by his professionalism and obvious passion for what he does.
Although we were only looking for a quote for a tree stump removal we ended up asking him and his team to do a whole lot of jobs on our various trees. We were very pleased with the result and the garden was left very tidy afterwards. Jesseps really take pride in the work they do. It’s fantastic that such a good operator is right here in Maraetai.
I employed Phil from Jessep Contracting to trim the trees and hedges away from the fenceline and power lines at my property.
I found him and his team to be really friendly and approachable and they turned up on time. They also made sure all the mess was cleared away and barely left a leaf behind.
I’d be happy to recommend them for any tree or hedge trimming jobs.
